Ash Bedford (CEO and Founder)

Ballarat

My name is Ash Bedford and I’m a Fitness Professional with over 10 years experience. I created Zazen Fitness to provide exceptional services to those who feel overwhelmed by exercise and confused about how to manage their wellbeing. I am currently taking on new Personal Training clients. I lived and worked in Melbourne for 10 years before moving back home to Ballarat in April 2019. I am available for consultation regarding fitness, nutrition and well-being, so please send me an email if you’d like to have a chat.

My philosophy is to make exercise enjoyable, teach people how to master the basics, learn to breathe correctly and efficiently and teach people what good posture is and what that feels like.

The outcomes I have seen from my clients in the last decade are an enormous increase in vitality, wellbeing, strength and balance with a decrease in physical aches and pain as well as improved mental health capacity and mental clarity.

I find my work extremely rewarding and am extremely passionate about all things fitness, health and wellbeing.

When I am not at work I enjoy getting outside in nature and spending time with my family, I have 2 young kids (1 x age 4 and 1 x newborn) and a beautiful wife. We live on a small-scale urban permaculture farm on the outskirts of Ballarat, where I grow a large amount of organic produce, which feeds my family. I love getting down the surf coast when I can to get a few waves, and simply spending time caring for my garden. In between all of this, when time permits, I love being social and catching up for coffee with like minded people, partaking in regular volunteer work in the community, lots of reading and setting some time aside for yoga and meditation.

Qualifications:

  • • Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science
  • • Cert III and IV Fitness (Personal Training)
  • • Cert IV Allied Health Professional
  • • Qualified Yoga Teacher (270hr)
  • • Qualified Nutrition Coach (Precision Nutrition)

Testimonials

‘Training with Ash has been a truly fantastic experience and I can safely say he is the best trainer I have worked with. I was repetitively injuring myself through poor management until I started with Ash.
He worked closely with my physiotherapist to design a program that allowed me to build up a powerful strength base, leaving me feeling fitter and more confident in my body than I had been since my early 20's. My sessions were always dynamic and interesting and would always leave me feeling uplifted and satisfied. I highly recommend Ash's services to anyone.

Project Manager, NAB
"Training with Ash was extremely important for my sanity when I first moved to Australia 2 years ago. Originally from Brazil, I started doing 1on1 training in the first month I arrived. I was a little bit down because of the relocation and lots of change. I had no family here and no support and it was hard with just me, my 6 month old baby and my husband. Ash had such great energy and positivity which helped me to balance myself and stay calm during stressful times. I am so grateful that I found Ash when I did. With my next move to New York it’s going to be really difficult to find someone who lives up to the same high standards."
Graziela Gulin
Mum
"Ash is amazing! From the very first session my goals were very carefully considered and my abilities assessed thoroughly. As a result I saw a huge difference in my strength and control. Every session is specifically planned for me but also flexible to how my body is on that day, and it's fun! Ash constantly assesses how I'm feeling during and after sessions. He is so positive and encouraging- I love it! Never pushy, just calmly guiding me in the direction my training needs to go. As a physiotherapist, I can highly recommend Ash for his expertise and knowledge, calm but fun attitude to training and specific attention to the mind-body connection."
Janetta Macfarlane
Physiotherapist
"Since training with Ash twice a week, my overall strength has significantly improved! My sessions are always varied so I never know what to expect and I don’t get bored. Ash is always mindful of my abilities, however each session brings something challenging! Ash is also mindful of my wellbeing and tailors each session accordingly. I would highly recommend Ash, especially if you’re looking for a kick start and motivation. I leave each session feeling upbeat and positive! I now supplement my training with aquatic exercise and pilates, and compared to a few months ago, have more energy and self-awareness."
Helen Johanson
Retired
"I have been training with Ash for a number of years now and I really enjoy it. I love the flexibility that the sessions provide. The ability to go with the flow and to spin on a dime. I love it when I need a session that is a bit more restorative, instead of intensive, Ash is able to adjust the way he sees the session running. Attention to form and technique is extremely high. As a chiropractor, someone who is interested in form and wellbeing assurance, I love the Ash's approach.
