Ashton and her trainer Meagan

Ashton Parsons is a survivor—big-time—and deals with pain daily. You wouldn’t realize it today, however, if you ran across this petite powerhouse at the Anytime Fitness gym in Wake Village, TX.

Surviving two types of cancer and recovering from multiple orthopedic surgeries hasn’t stopped her from re-building energy and lots of strength to the point she now competes in powerlifting meets! She’s healthier than she’s ever been, consistently positive, and inspiring many around her.

Ashton is a prime example of her personal trainer Meagan Armstrong’s belief that: “Your desire to accomplish something has to be bigger and tougher than your excuses.”
