My name is Ashlee Schneider and I am from Dannebrog, Nebraska (a really small town). I went to Centura High School in Cairo, Ne. I played NCAA II women's basketball for 2 years at Fort Hays State University and 2 years at the University of Nebraska Kearney. I graduated with honors from the University of Nebraska Kearney with a Bachelor of Science in Exercise Science. I completed my internship for my bachelor degree at the University of Texas (Longhorns), in their Strength and Conditioning Department which was an awesome learning experience for me.
I have been a Certified Personal Trainer through the American Council on Exercise for almost since May 2009 and have loved being an inspiration in people's lives to live healthier, more active lifestyles. I helped coach my alma mater high school basketball team for 2 years (2010-2012) and had a lot of fun and success doing so. Teaching sports and fitness is more fun for me than it is a job and I hope I can do it forever!
I started personal training in May 2009 at Anytime Fitness in Kearney, NE. I trained there for two years and then moved my business to Grand Island, NE. The move was to be closer to my mother and closer to Centura for coaching. I started working as the personal trainer at Ladies of America (LOA) in May 2011, as well as St. Francis Medical Center. I started personal training at Snap Fitness in 2012 and bought the gym Jan 1, 2013. I feel very blessed for the people I have met through my career because they have been wonderful people and I have I hope to continue to grow my business.
I wrote a year-round sports and conditioning manual for a NCAA II college volleyball team. While I was writing this program, a high-school coach approached me about making a manual that other teams/coaches/players could use because most programs do not have the budget for a Strength Coach. Many programs use one of the football coaches to write a program for the athletes, which does not meet specific needs for every athlete because each sport is different and requires different muscle actions. I used what I learned in my undergraduate studies, along with my college basketball experience, personal training experience and research to come up with a manual that high school and college volleyball and basketball athletes can use to develop the level of strength, power, speed, agility and flexibility they need to compete at the highest level possible.
