OWNER / YOGA INSTRUCTOR
On a full ride athletic scholarship to a Division I University, Ashley suffered from a career ending injury that put all softball dreams not just on hold, but out of the picture completely.
Years later on a yoga mat in a 95-degree studio, she discovered the key to her own physical healing and what RAW MVMT firmly believes to be the missing link in athletic training.
Coach Ashley’s training style is structured specifically to help athletes move, breathe and focus in ways that enhance performance and decrease injury. This style is not for the faint of heart....She has a way of finding your weaknesses – the holes in your training and making them very apparent, very quickly. Classes focus on the vital elements of flexibility, core stabilization and raw strength, but more importantly, on mental control and stress management. You only get one body and one chance to have a long, healthy athletic career. So, hang your ego on the shelf, check your pride at the door and see what you are really made of!

WHY A BULL?
RAW MVMT incorporates a bull with a geometric design aspect as the foundation for our logo. Why a bull? This symbol is a perfect representation of everything that we believe and perfectly summarizes the spirit that we want to foster within our training. According to Native people, the bull is a symbol of abundance and manifestation. This symbol promotes pushing through fear and the willingness to meet a challenge head on. People who identify with the bull are social creatures who work well in teams, but also have strong personal determination. They can be stubborn and insistent, but only because of their intense drive. Those that believe in spirit animals believe that a bull can lend us the strength to stand our ground, but remind us not to crash around like one in a china shop. We believe that by harnessing the power of one’s raw physical strength, and balancing it with mental control, while remaining authentic, will lead to the production of incredible athletic potential.
PRIVATE SOFTBALL PITCHING INSTRUCTOR
After a brief collegiate career, Magen began coaching at the local recreation league that opened the doors to her coaching career. Magen gave pitching lessons at the league to pitchers of all ages for a period of time.
She began coaching at the high school level in 2017 as a head JV coach and moved up after her first year to become the pitching/assistant coach for varsity and has been there helping sculpt athletes ever since.
Coach Magen believes the mental aspect is just as important as the physical and it is crucial to train your mind as well as your body to help reach its fullest potential.
Her goal is to help each athlete alongside their athletic journey to help reach their goals and dreams. A huge part of that is having the heart and drive to get to where you want to be. Coach Magen is ready to work with you if you are ready for her!
PRIVATE SOFTBALL INSTRUCTOR
Coach Samantha started playing baseball when she was 4 years old with her older brother, Justin. Once she was 8, she realized she wanted to transition to softball. The rest is history! She played through college and ended her career at Barry University in Miami, FL. She was a middle infielder who started out batting righty but switched to a lefty in high school due to her speed. She has a lot of knowledge to give and can’t wait to share my experiences!
