Ashley Horner is a fitness celebrity, hybrid athlete, professional fitness competitor, ultra-runner, triathlete, entrepreneur, and mother to three boys. She played soccer with the Guam national team, authored and sold over 1,000,000 copies of her 14 different training programs, and is sponsored by Bodybuilding.com, Reebok, RockTape, and PowerDot. She owns a fitness facility appropriately named “American Sled Dogs” and it’s located in the heart of Virginia Beach. Her facility caters to fitness levels of all types and law enforcement, military, and first responders frequent the establishment. She also created a children’s fitness community, “SledPups” where children around the nation compete for scholarships that assist with the cost of youth sports.
Her entrepreneurial endeavors are far-reaching and extend deep into the community. She created the Valkyrie Surf and Snow clothing line and operates the “Unbroken Foundation”, an organization founded to support battered women and children. She hopes to employ these women in the coffee/whiskey bar she owns, “American Brew”. The Brew offers locally-sourced coffee, house-made food options and a robust selection of whiskey.
She recently began working with the “Maison Fortune Orphanage” in Hinche, Haiti and in April of 2017 she raised $90,000 for the school while completing a grueling 230-mile run from the Haitian capital of Port-Au-Prince, along the western border, and terminating at the Maison Fortune Orphanage. She frequently travels to the orphanage with her own children and is creating long-lasting relationships with the children and the staff. Additionally, she can be found completing charity events that benefit families of fallen military members, Virginia Beach police working dogs, or raising awareness for victims of human trafficking.
