My Name is Caitlin Ashdown I was born in Phoenix, Arizona and I am 23 years old. I received my Associate in Applied Science Degree in Strength, Nutrition, and Personal Training along with my Certificate of Completion for Personal Trainer and Personal Trainer Specialist at Glendale Community College in 2016. I am also a NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) Certified Personal Trainer. I created Fit Junkee in 2013 to help others and to truly inspire people to be wise about making healthy choices. Fit Junkee was designed around the idea that everyone wants to improve their health, mobility, nutrition, and training in some way and that every person has a different goal and vision as to what leading a healthy lifestyle means. I have been a part of the Fitness industry since 2010 when I competed in my first body building show and have done 5 more since then. Fit Junkee has been operating in North Phoenix but we have decided to grow our business and moved to Flagstaff, Arizona to plant our roots. I grew up camping in Flagstaff every summer and fell in love with the town and community I look forward to growing my Fit Junkee family in Flagstaff!

My name is Ashley Auchtung, I am the second trainer at Fit Junkee. I am 31 years old, I have two little boys and have been married for 11 years. I am an ACE (American Council on Exercise) Certified Personal Trainer. I am a Fitness Nutrition Specialist and certified in Fitness Math. Growing up, I was overweight and I have struggled with my weight for most of my life. After having kids, I became very interested in nutrition, fitness and overall health. I wanted to make a positive change, not only for myself, but for my family. I went on to get my Personal Training Certification. I changed my eating habits and became more active. To date, I have lost 70 pounds and I absolutely love being healthy and active. Through my own health journey, I have become really passionate about helping others reach their own health goals and have them feeling good about themselves. I look forward to helping others achieve their goals through fitness and wellness.

Hi, my name is Katie Schwartz and I teach Vinyasa style yoga in the Hatha Yoga tradition. I am 30 years old and originally from South Dakota. My husband and I are happy to be spreading our roots in Flagstaff, having moved here 3 years ago. My yoga journey began when I took my first class in Steamboat Springs 9 years ago. Soon after, I developed a serious routine of practice. What I found was that I was the healthiest and most energetic I had ever felt. This might be attributed to the effects of practicing yoga - breathing properly and allowing my body to make full use of the oxygen I inhale, movement and appreciation for my body and its increasing flexibility and strength, and detachment of my mind from the stresses of daily life. I completed my 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Indonesia in 2015. Since then, I have taught private classes and group classed at NAU. When I discovered Fit Junkee, I was searching for a fitness community that would welcome me and motivate me to achieve wellness in other areas through strength-training and cardio. Yoga is a perfect complement to these other classes and I am ecstatic to share the practice of yoga with the Fit Junkee fam.
