Ashley Borden is the fitness expert on Cooking Channel's "Drop 5 lbs with Good Housekeeping."

Ashley Borden is a fitness and lifestyle consultant to some of Hollywood's most recognizable faces. Her unique approach to fitness can be attributed to having tackled her own personal struggles, transforming them into a positive philosophy and dynamic training program — making her one of the most sought-after experts in her field. Her personality and humor suits all types of celebrity clients, including Christina Aguilera, Natasha Bedingfield, Taraji P. Henson, Ryan Gosling, Mandy Moore, Tori Spelling, Lauren Graham, The Veronica's, Sean Hayes, Annabeth Gish, Green Day's Tre Cool and more. Borden was also part of 9-time UFC champion, Matt Hughes' team in preparation for his UFC fight against George St. Pierre.

Borden's surefire tips and techniques have been featured in InStyle, Vogue, Shape, Self, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Prevention, The Los Angeles Times and Glamour, to name a few. In 2007, she was selected as a member of Fitness magazine's prestigious advisory board. Internationally, Borden has been recognized by publications such as Elle Japan, Harper's Bazaar Russia, Who Australia and London's NOW magazine. In addition, she has been interviewed on the "Today Show," Discovery Health, "Extra!," "The Tyra Banks Show," MTV, E! Entertainment and more.

While maintaining a devoted training clientele, Borden is steadfast in mastering the newest exercises and nutritional advancements. Her hard work caught the eye of Nike, who invited Borden to become a Nike Elite Athlete starting in 2004. She has worked with both Evian and Splenda as a brand ambassador to the health and fitness world. One of North America's premier health product companies, Flora, joined forces with Borden to promote Flora's high-quality, environmentally friendly, organic products, including Ashley's favorite Udo's Oil. Borden also recently became the face of Nintendo's Wii Fit and was the fitness director for Nivea's My Skinny Jeans Challenge.

After a successful three-year run at the Four Seasons Punta Mita, Mexico, Borden and training partner Justin Hagen now create private, luxury, personalized fitness retreats at locations around the world.

Publisher McGraw-Hill debuted "Your Perfect Fit," a book co-authored by Borden and denim designer Paige Adams-Geller (of Paige Premium Denim) in January 2008. The book, the first to marry fashion, fitness and food tips, was given kudos by LA Confidential, "The Tyra Banks Show," and the Wall Street Journal.

Most recently, Borden's volunteer work with at risk youth through the Chaka Khan Foundation has kept her busy; she is working with and educating over 50 children to improve their knowledge of health, nutrition and fitness.

Borden was raised in a tremendously athletic and nutritionally oriented family. An avid dancer growing up, she always felt an inherent connection to fitness, yet battled a vicious eating disorder throughout her teen years. Hitting bottom at 18, Borden finally found a peaceful balance of exercise and nutrition through Overeaters Anonymous. "After having such a profound recovery experience, I felt it in my soul to share my insight on exercise and nutrition with others," says Borden. Clients gravitate to Borden to learn her training regimen and her widely written about SOS Food Plan. She is currently certified with the National Health Club Association.

Borden trains at The Fitness Factory in West Hollywood, on location and in-home.
