About Me

Welcome to Essential Beet! My name is Ashley Abatiello and I am a 30 year old mom of two.  My love and passion for all things health, fitness and lifestyle related began shortly after I had my children. I realized raising kids of my own meant finding better ways to incorporate healthy eating and living habits for our everyday lives.

I am an Athletics and Fitness Association of America (AFAA) certified group fitness instructor with specialties in Circuit Training, Total Body and HIIT work outs.  I also have current licenses in Pound®, Zumba®, Strong by Zumba®, Zumba Toning® and PowerTramp.  I truly feel that the power of movement along with an understanding of proper nutrition is the key to everything.

We don’t live to eat, we eat to live!

My husband Steven and I have found that a plant based and holistic lifestyle works best for our family. We are constantly encouraging others to fuel their bodies with whole foods, nourish their bodies with natural products and challenge their bodies with exercise. Being parents who are always on the go, we try to find ways that make our lives as easy as possible while incorporating these principles in our home.
