ASHLEY'S COOLSCULPTING JOURNEY
Even with the strictest diet I’ve never had a toned tummy. I just wanted that little bit of cosmetic bulge taken care of.
So tell us, what did you have done at Radiance?
This year I got CoolSculpting HOW MANY SESSIONS on my stomach and abs. Last year I had CoolSculpting on my chin.
Can you share a little bit about yourself?
I’m a wife and mom of two, as well as a pet mom to a few fur baby rescues. I own a fitness studio called HOTWORX. It’s a 24/7 infrared fitness studio and I have a second location under construction. I love connecting with my members and leading my amazing team. I workout everyday – I love lifting weights, hiking, and skiing but yoga is my true passion. I recently started playing cardio tennis as well. I also love to travel and right now I’m super into road trips to national parks with my family.
What made you want to try CoolSculpting?
I love to be active but the main reason is for my mental health and focus. I do care about how I look but have always struggled with my mid-section and even more so after having two kids. Even with the strictest diet I’ve never had a toned tummy. I just wanted that little bit of cosmetic bulge taken care of.
How did you first hear about CoolSculpting?
Probably ads on social media.

Have you tried other ways to lose weight or reduce fat before?
Yes, I have increased my protein intake and started lifting heavier. I don’t need or want to lose weight – it’s more about muscle tone and clothes fitting better.
Tell us about your experience getting CoolSculpting from Tanya
Tanya is amazing! Any cosmetic procedure is fairly intimate and Tanya makes you feel so at ease and comfortable with the entire process. There’s no shame or embarrassment at all and she really ends up feeling like a best friend or family member. I had my chin area done a little over a year ago and had great results so I will be doing that again just to tighten it up a little more. I also had my tummy done a little over a week ago so I can’t see results yet but I’m very excited!
What advice did Tanya give you to get the best results from CoolSculpting?
Stay active and drink water.
What has been the biggest difference in your life since your CoolSculpting treatment?
More about confidence – I haven’t seen the full result yet but I’m just looking forward to clothes fitting better and having more clothing options.
BEFORE + AFTER
Is there anything else you’re doing to achieve your body and fitness goals?
Yes! I workout a lot, use the infrared sauna which is amazing for detox and lymphatic drainage after any procedure, and I love healthy food and water.
How did you feel during the procedure? What about afterwards?
The first few minutes can be a bit intense but after the area freezes it’s pretty numb. I mostly relaxed with the lights dimmed and listened to a podcast. Tanya checked on me a lot. Afterwards, I was very swollen and had some mild discomfort and tenderness as the nerves came back to life but that only lasted about a week. It did not keep me from going about my regular day to day activities.
Would you recommend CoolSculpting to others? Who could benefit from it the most?
Yes, it’s definitely not for weight loss or a quick fix so I would recommend it to someone like me who is active but just has a small amount of cosmetic bulge that they would like to tone.
