Ashley Dussault

Ashley Dussault

Head Coach, Personal Trainer, RealRyder Cycling Coach, Nutrition Coach

Ashley’s health journey started in her teens. She had spent years struggling with disordered eating & over exercise which unfortunately made her form an unhealthy relationship with both. With a lot of hard work & lifestyle change she took charge of her health and fell in love with exercise and good nutrition for how it made her feel. Ashley made the decision to study fitness & health promotion which lead to finding RAM soon after. Her  passion for fitness and nutrition has grown immensely over time and has lead to studying health coaching, plant based nutrition & nutrition coaching with the goal of providing as much value to our clients as possible. Ashleys journey hasn’t been easy but she is grateful for the struggle, it’s made her appreciate her health, strength & has given her a purpose to inspire others.


You can find Ashley doing personal training, group training, TRX, cycling & nutrition coaching at RAM. She absolutely loves it all but her favourite will always be teaching cycling & strength training.


Ashleys sole purpose at Ram is to help our clients fall in love with taking care of themselves and find joy through movement & good nutrition. Movement should be both fun and functional. Her goal is to show our clients how strong and capable they are through motivation, education and a positive environment.

Marcelo Villares

Personal Trainer

Born in Argentina, Marcelo is a National Physical Education Teacher and has a degree in High Performance Sports. Since childhood and adolescence, Marcelo liked to do physical activity and fell in love with sport from the age of 16. He has been involved in sports for more than 30 years and enjoys it every day. He has been working as a Personal Trainer since 2006.
Marcelo thanks Ryan for the opportunity to work as a Personal Trainer at RAM and teaching group classes. He enjoys sharing his knowledge with the members at RAM.
He has always considered himself a professional that projects his goals and that is what he is trying to achieve in the future at RAM. In addition, he has tried in his profession to balance the objective that people are looking to attain and their needs – that sometimes they do not always coincide and trying to help people understand that the second, once covered, will allow us to reach the first.

Stephanie teaches RAM bootcamps and simply loves to do this. “We do circuits of exercises to challenge your cardiovascular and muscular fitness levels while respecting your own strengths and limitations.”

Stephanies purpose at RAM is to help others not only gain strength physically but mentally and emotionally as well.

When she is not in the gym, you can find her at work in the Pharmacy, exploring/biking/snowshoeing trails in our beautiful city with Jeff, or outside pounding the pavement.
