My name is Ashley French, I'm a track athlete but I played volleyball and basketball all through middle school and high school. I have been running track since I was 4 years old, I'm 21 now. I ran summer track for G.P. express between 1994-2004. I graduated from South Grand Prairie high school in 2008 and got a full Track scholarship to the University of Kansas, after a year I transferred and started running for Langston University. I am now a wellness coach for Herbal Life, getting back into track and helping young athletes improve their performance on the track/court/field. I help young athletes of all ages on not only their performance, but their nutrition as well. My passion is helping athletes who are where I use to be.
I always sit down with my athletes to talk about personal goals, I make sure we know basic fundamentals and the importance of warm ups and cool downs.
I taught a young lasy who never worked with blocks before a day in her life. By the end of the day she knew how to push out the blocks, It wasn't perfect but in just a short amount of time she went from not knowing anything about block work, to setting up her own blocks and pushing off. That made my day.
