Ashman Strength is the personal website for Jay Ashman
I am a Kansas City Strength Coach and Personal Trainer who owns Kansas City Barbell in East Crossroads and who is the co-founder of Elite Athlete Development which is an online training service that helps you remotely.
There are two branches to my training services.
In person work, group coaching, strength classes, and team training at Kansas City Barbell, LLC. Downtown KC’s FIRST dedicated strength facility and USAPL Silver Level Regional Training Center. We are a drug-free, inclusive gym that opens our doors for anyone who wishes to train to be stronger, use strength to improve their fitness, those who compete in USAPL and USAW, and for those who are new to strength training and wish to learn how to do it correctly and safely.
Online services through Elite Athlete Development. Team EDev is unique in that we have a staff of coaches and nutritionists who all work together to give you a package that is damn near unbeatable in this business. Athletes, non-athletes, fitness, weight loss, strength, bodybuilding… we got you covered and this remote/online service is available to those who do not have the capability to train with me in person.
What about me?
What makes me… me?
I have been a trainer/coach since the late 90’s. That is quite a while, isn’t it?
I gained mass, I leaned up, I came back from a heart condition and fully recovered.
I played Superleague rugby, had a failed NFL workout (hey, at least I got invited!), competed in Strongman before it was cool, did a few Powerlifting meets, and am now an ex-athlete who just wants to defy the aging process and look great naked.
I trained kids, high school athletes, professional athletes, moms, dads, 50 year old badasses whose work ethic would shame most 20 year old kids…
All I ask of you is one simple thing:
Give me your best
That is it. I don’t care where you start from, I care about your effort.
Your willingness to improve is worth more than you think.
If you are that person, I am here to help you.
In the meantime, have a look around my blog. I have several years of posts for you to get an idea about the kind of man I am.
If you like what you see, contact me and let’s chat.
