Ashley Robinson from Kenilworth is enjoying the fruits of his labour after leaving his day job to follow his passion.

Robinson is a performance coach, stunt performer for films, fitness coach, professional kickboxer and he is also the ambassador for Magnesium Café.

This café has become a trusted product for many, and Robinson says he is happy that he gets to use the products and encourages others to do so. He says with him going freelance and leaving his day job, a lot of opportunities have followed him.

“I followed my passion and it worked really well and it opened doors for me. Now I get to do what I really love – and when I want. I now get paid to talk about other people’s products and help a lot of families,” he says. Leaving his job as a bank teller, now he helps others keep healthy. He trains learners at schools to keep fit and also has families that come to him for fitness.

“I really enjoy the outdoors, the fresh air and meeting people. I just love talking and engaging with people to hear their goals, especially their fitness goal and helping them achieve those goals makes me happy,” he says.

Robinson says that for one to be fit it doesn’t need to break the bank. One must do at least 30 minutes of activity a day, have three good meals a day and drink water. “Your plate must have all the colours. It can be simple things like rice, potatoes, tomatoes and meat among other things. Eat your rainbow colours, don’t forget your glass of water,” he says.

He adds that a lot of people are insecure about their weight and that should not be the case. “Believe in yourself, it will change a lot. It will help you with your mood. Fitness is not all about being the fittest but feeling good about yourself. And this is what I do for families, I help them live better lives,” he says.

I’m glad that I left my 9 to 5 job to focus on things that really matter to me. I’m happy and this is what I have always wanted to do,” he says.
