Ashley Rutan


After hanging up her soccer cleats when her team went to Nationals, Ashley decided to focus on her training in CrossFit. She decided to take her performance a step further and participated in SEALFIT’s 20X program (twice!). She was the youngest woman in the world to complete this training. 

She graduated from Penn State where she was a coach at the CrossFit Club. Since then, she balances her corporate job with training athletes through Honor Performance Training.
