Shay Ashfield

Vibe Fitness Owner & Trainer

Shay Ashfield is the founder of Vibe Fitness, the newly launched boutique fitness studio in Dubai Investment Park (DIP). When she isn't managing the business, she's instructing its Rhythm Ride (indoor cycling) and Booty Bootcamp classes. Having performed as a dancer in David Guetta's and Roger Sanchez's productions, Shay Ashfield is no stranger to intense physical activity and is a natural fitness enthusiast. Originally from New York, she relocated to Miami where she honed her skills as a dancer and choreographer. With a young family in tow, Dubai's warmer weather and al-fresco lifestyle options were a big draw. Flexible working hours for her husband and an impressive selection of schools sealed the deal for them. Before launching Vibe Fitness, Shay was juggling being a new mother and hosting pole fitness and indoor cycling lessons. With a vision to become the go-to fitness destination in the community, Shay hopes to spark an appetite for fitness in DIP.
