TAA S02Ep06 – CURTIS FOWLIE & ASHLEY KING on Raising Kids Vegan, Living the Fitness Lifestyle with Your Partner & More!

In this episode, I’m joined by vegan fitness super couple, Curtis Fowlie and @ashleykingfitness .

Outside of having to constantly dodge unsolicited attempts to contract them as billboard models for vegan beachwear brands, Curtis and Ashley both balance a lifestyle of working their respective day jobs, serious lifting and cardio, eating intelligently for their goals and raising a family of three boys.

I have the privilege of coaching both of these amazing humans currently and I’m constantly impressed by how they manage their busy schedules so diligently both together and individually. I thought it’d be super interesting for others to hear about the in’s and out’s of just how a fit, healthy and busy vegan couple live their life and see what take-away’s we can glean that can apply to YOUR personal life as well whether you have a family of your own or not!

We get into all the details about how they meal plan together, how they motivate each other to get to the gym or eat for their goals, how they raise their kids and what they all eat, how they balance work and fitness and much more!

It was such a blast having these two on so I hope you enjoy it as much as I did and thank you again to Curtis and Ashley for coming on. Curtis doesn’t use social media much but Ashley can be found at AshleyKingFitness on Instagram – go show her some love. Thank you for listening and without further ado, on with the show!
