Ashleigh Resch

Accredited Exercise Physiologist


Ashleigh is an experienced Accredited Exercise Physiologist in our Gungahlin and
Casey clinics in the ACT. Ashleigh grew up as a defence kid, so even though she calls
Canberra her hometown, she has lived all around including Newcastle, Sydney and in
the USA.

Ashleigh completed her Bachelor of Exercise Physiology at UNSW in 2021 where she
gained valuable experience in working in hospitals and private practice, including mobile
clinics, and working with clients of all ages. After graduation, Ashleigh moved back to
Canberra to begin her professional career where she worked mainly under DVA and
helped her clients manage their chronic conditions and injuries and their mental health.
Ashleigh also has experience in working with private and medicare schemes. She has a
keen interest in working with mental health, knee and back pain, and working with
runners to make them stronger and more efficient. Ashleigh also has her certificate III in
fitness and a certification to teach reformer pilates.

Ashleigh also has extensive experience working with children, having worked as a swim
school instructor during high school. Ashleigh also worked at an Out of Hours Care
(OSHC) centre in Coogee for four years during university. While this experience
confirmed that she did not want to be a teacher, she knew that she would enjoy working
with kids in a clinical setting.

Ashleigh has always had a passion for exercise, having been very active from a young
age. Ashleigh was heavily involved in Athletics and Cross Country, Swimming,
Triathlons and Netball. Athletics was the sport that won her heart, and she competed for
over 15 years, specialising in racewalking and distance events. Ashleigh competed at a
national level for race walking, having won numerous national medals in her junior
years. When she moved to the USA, she broke their indoor 1-mile racewalk record with
a time of 7:00.33, and was able to walk 5km in 23:31. While now retired from
competitive athletics, she still is a keen runner. Her favourite race distance is a half
marathon, but has also recently started racing marathons.

In her spare time, Ashleigh loves running, going on hikes and checking out all the
cocktail bars around Canberra.
