Ashley Denton, COO
When did you start working for DiamondFit Performance?
I have been an employee of DiamondFit since the fall of 2017, but I have been around the organization since its inception. I am the owner of North Raleigh CrossFit which is located right next to DiamondFit Raleigh, and Drew and I both opened our businesses together in the same location in the spring of 2013.
What sports have you played?
In high school, I played basketball, ran track, and I was a cheerleader. At the Oklahoma state track meet I medaled in the 100m Hurdles, 400m Relay, and 1600m Relay. In college, I cheered on a Nationally ranked all-girls cheerleading squad. Around the age of 30, I discovered CrossFit and fell in love with the competitive environment. I have competed in CrossFit at the Regionals level as both an individual and on a team. I have also won a few local and state Olympic Weightlifting competitions as well.

Minors in Management, Psychology, and H.P.E.R. (Health, Physical Education, and Recreation)

Tell us something about yourself!
When I am not at work I love spending time at home. I’m a big homebody. When it’s the Summer I love spending time outside and in the sunshine. When it’s the Winter I love not getting out of bed. 🙂
Where are you from?
Heavener, Oklahoma. However, I have lived in Raleigh since 2006 and consider it my home!
