Adi was born and raised in Israel and, like many people who grew up there, served in the Israeli Defense Forces, naturally building up her leadership skills. After serving her country, Adi dove into a business development career at companies like Visa and Cellcom. Taking on a hectic work schedule, her activity level slowly faded from existence. In 2012 she realized she had to make a change and took her first class at BodyBurn by Ray, quickly excelling with the well-designed programs, motivating trainers and her dedicated drive, igniting a passion for fitness she hasn't had in years. Not too long after, she felt an urge for a career change, became a personal trainer and was hired by Ray himself.
Today, Adi takes pride in motivating her clients and assisting them in their fitness journey, believing her own experiences give her the understanding, empathy and skills to guide her clients to their goals.
As the youngest of the Peleckas bunch, Ashley grew up with three hyper-athletic brothers, leaving her with no option other than becoming active herself! Her brother Ray’s healthy mindset became ingrained as her own, and after graduating from UMass Dartmouth with a B.A. in Psychology and Philosophy—but undecided where to turn—she went straight to him. Countless hours shadowing him later, she received her personal training certification through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and has been training at BBBR since 2012. She remains a favorite here, given that her genuine character and vibrant energy is infectious, creating a warm environment which draws clients back class after class.
For James, being in the Peleckas family meant being active as soon as he could walk. Training with his brother in college made him one of the first official RayFittters. Despite his dedication to studying civil engineering at UMass Dartmouth, he recognized his real passion lay in personal training and strong, one-on-one relationships. After getting certified at the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and instructing clients at a Boston Sports Club, he quickly advanced his expertise and now leads sessions at BBBR. While you can catch him leading Original Burn classes, James is also certified in integrated stretching and catering to pregnant clients and new moms, who need a gentler approach. He continues to explore and educate himself in new methods, practices and techniques of the fitness industry, so he is always in-the-know of current trends. His clients repeatedly turn to him (as a trainer and a friend) for his dedication to crafting personalized programs they desire.
