About Me

I’m Ashley de Lotz and I work with a range of people to help them achieve and exceed their goals!

I specialise in working with mountain bikers, but regularly apply my skills and knowledge to help everyone from recreational exercisers through to elite athletes. I believe that people excel when they are enjoying themselves, so fun is a core component of everything I do. 

My skills and experience in sport and engineering help me work with clients to improve their fitness, abilities and understanding in whatever they do. Developing them into strong and healthy high-performers. 

I currently have qualifications as a Level 2 MTB Instructor, Level 3 Personal Trainer, Level 3 Sports Massage Therapist, Chartered Engineer and a BSc Hons in Applied Sports Science and Coaching.

When I’m not working, I can be found exploring new trails and racing across as an Elite Cross Country Mountain Biker – the only thing I love more than cycling are dogs and coffee!
