The Force Training Rio Olympics

I am Ashley, Owner and coach of The Force Training. I once tried with everything I had and more to reach my dreams of becoming a professional cyclist. A huge part of that dream was competing in the Olympics. After one really bad accident that resulted in a broken neck, shoulder,  head injury, tissue damage and in the long term hand, wrist surgeries, and 5+ back operations. Becoming a professional cycling could not be my future. That's ok, all while I was doing my best, I was coaching athletes to become the best they could. I had a great outlet to turn my focus and coaching, helping others reach there goals, dreams became my passion, obsession, my life.

This opportunity to go to the Olympics with a athlete is something I didn't know would ever be possible until a few weeks ago.  I would have a hard time describing to you how I felt or still feel. But I can tell you I really feel this is one of the biggest moments in my life. When we got confirmation of the Olympic spot the best way to describe how I felt was a sensation so overwhelming I was out of my mind, absolutely hysterically laughing and crying at the same time and this happend multiple times over 5 days.

I know it looks like I am doing great on social media, I am, and so are my athletes, I just don’t make enough money to make this trip happen. We live modestly, besides coaching I recently got another job, I have already sold almost all by bike stuff to just pay for bills and food. Unless I want to loose my condo, car…. This was the only possibility I could see making it possible. I have seen too many people neglect this type of sight. I am not one of those people.

I promise you that this contribution would make someone's, my dream a reality. Going to the Olympics. Also I guess I get to support Luis jajaja
