Ashley Hertzel, a client at Dynamic Pulse Fitness in Yorktown, who had been training with bodybuilding champion Jeanette Fischetto, recently placed in the Top 5 at a figure competition.
The audience was filled with proud family members, friends and her trainer Fischetto!
"Her weight and body fat decreased to her competition size after months of dedication and commitment," Fischetto said in her blog post on Patch. "And the best news is, this definitely isn't her last show."

Hertzel was working out six days a week, concentrating on heavier weights and cardio with resistance, all while losing body fat and gaining muscle in mind. Her diet was strict, limited to chicken and turkey and few vegetables.
"I did this with the mindset that I’m doing this because I want to be in the best shape of my life and I am," Hertzel said.
