Ashley Fenzl Crossman, Ph.D. has lunched an exciting new business based on the belief that running is a very powerful tool and that has the potential to change a woman’s life.
In 2004, Ashley co-founded Girls on the Run of Maricopa County, a non-profit after-school program that encourages girls in 3rd through 8th grade to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through running. Through this process, she realized that the issues young girls face today aren’t just relevant to this age group, but are affecting women of all ages. Women, she realized, could benefit from similar lessons and tools that are interwoven with running, and a business was born.
She Runs Strong, LLC provides running coaching to women of all abilities while empowering them in all aspects of life. With years of experience, Ashley provides a fun, empowering, and safe environment for women to train for any distance.

Every client receives a customized training program and individualized attention to meet their goals.
