THE head of Australia's leading body image and eating disorder foundation expressed grave concern about the new Ashy Bines program, telling our sister paper Kidspot that health messages should be targeted at parents, not kids. Controversial Gold Coast personal trainer, Ashy Bines has launched an edu-tainment program targeting children as young as 12 months old. It is described in promotional material as "a fun packed music, fitness and education show for 1 to 6 year olds", a "highly interactive experience" that "will have your child singing, dancing, exercising and smiling from ear to ear", and it promises to promote "health and happiness, all while encouraging young audiences to dance, sing and smile! Ashy, a year-old mother and model, is the woman behind the Ashy Bines Bikini Body Challenge, as well as a number of other exercise and weight loss apps. She has recently faced claims of taking unauthorised credit card payments from app users, parking in a disabled car spot and of plagiarising recipes from bloggers.

Complete waste of money, that money was better off just buying veggies to make green smoothies which is a better tip I can give you than what this "business" does.
When I signed up, I wasn't expecting much. I was obese, and scared that everyone would be fit and skinny. What I found was some people were in the same body as me. I did 3 rounds, I started at kgs and got down to 65kg by following the clean eat guide and going to her boot camps.
No starving myself. It was a bit expensive. If I lost motivation I could see why people would be angry having their money direct debited. But I pushed through the Doms and was transformed and can life my life feeling confident. I didn't even get saggy skin of anything because you tone! Horrible, bullying company.
Keep taking your money and don't respond to requests for refunds. They seem to make up rules for the group on the go and are Great at making this unclear to their followers. Stay away. Just a money hungry business. All they care about is putting money in their pockets and finding ways to do so that are shady! Kept charging me well after I discontinued the plan!
They took so much money from my account and continued to do so until I literally canceled my card! They refused a refund and were extremely rude! I joined the abbbc bootcamps for the first 2 rounds they had in my local area. It was great, I had so much fun and met some great ppl. My trainer was awesome and went above and beyond for us. Only prob was it was SO expensive, more than double my gym membership now, and the times werent very flexible for full time workers, so i definitely wasn't getting my money's worth.
Other than that I would have continued on. Agree with most other people. It's a scam. Such a rip off. Kept taking money out of my account even after the 12 weeks was over. Extremely annoyed and upset. Signed up for the 12 wk bikini challenge finishing in November All fine not for me though only for the beautiful people. No, what do you get every month? Read more. They don't give refunds for ripping you off with hidden costs either. Have contacted department of fair trading and commenced legal action to recover funds.
Due to work commitments I was only able to make 2 days of the challenge. I asked them why they started taking money from my account and they stated I had not signed up to a contract so they pick one for you and start taking your money, This is what they do until you choose a program.
Its illegal to hold a persons card details and conduct transactions withour their knowledge and consent I am appalled at how this company works!!! Even after multiple emails trying to get in contact with this company they STILL take money from my bank. I'd like to cancel my membership with ashy bines as when I signed up I was told it was only a 5 pound payment ONE time only I am totally disgusted by how this company operates.
I did the program for a year and it was great and suited my lifestyle - until my lifestyle changed and I had 6 months left in my contract for sessions I could not attend. Apparently it my responsibility to contact them to tell them after my contract ends I want out - despite over 20 emails and messages going there way for me wanting out.
I have been trying since March to cancel this. I have not once been contacted emailed or anything about the program but they still take money out my account. Emailed then 5 times and still no response has anyone else had this problem? Hi Britta. Can you please forward all of your correspondence to myself for further investigation? My progarmme offers: unlimited time at the gym, 5 training sessions a week, and i can schedule more if i am up to it. Great help understanding the chemistry of our bodies and how to make nutrition work for you.
My trainer Jade is great, and sometimes, when I swap classes you ar I have been trying to cancel my subscription for months calling all different number, emailing all different contacts through ashley bines.
They keep stealing money out of my account! I call it stealing because i have made it clear i do not want anything to do with any of their programs. I shouldn't have to cancel my card and reset everything up just because this one company is pathetic and money hungry so they wont get back in contact with me to cancel my subscription.
I dont know how many emails i have to send saying cancel i do not want anything moee to do with ashley bines. Its an absolute joke! My observed results are better than my expectations. The trainers are awesome and make the program varied and fun. Everything was offered and the trainers are always available to help. Review collected in partnership with Ashy Bines. I didn't e left to enjoy the program as much as I have.
I absolutely love Holland Park training and Mitch and all the trainers have been so friendly and helpful and the sessions are kicking my butt!
I really want to stay on after my 21 days are up. Have people ever actually gotten refunded or Had their subscription cancelled? Seeing so many where people have had to cancel their whole bank account. I just want ashy to cance my subscription and get refunded as I didn't even know I had signed up!
Unlikely, with that one, If i didn't pick up on them taking money from my account this would still be going on. I launch a dispute with my bank and got my money back. Just mention that this is an obvious scam and a simple Google search will review it. Considering I have not gotten a further reply from their "support team" and all my comments on the Facebook page have been deleted and my ability to leave comments disabled I will vent my anger here too. The information is poorly relayed to customers and a downright disappointment.
As I have paid in advance 25 Aug- Sep25 I request a refund for the days in advance of my cancellation request today, i. Their customer service is terrible!!! Absolutely terrible I have also been trying to get some sort of refund and have them stop taking money from my visa for a very long time It's shocking. Hello and thank you for your question. Our support team request that all correspondence be made through email, as this way both our team and yourself are able to see a clear trail of all correspondence.
I can see that your last email was yesterday, please allow a reasonable amount of time for them to respond. I have escalated your email and asked them to respond to you as soon as possible. I never got a refund they apparently send all information via email regarding terms and conditions never got them so after weeks of waiting for a reply she finally sent me some which I couldn't locate anywhere on the website and I never recieved receipts for payments or knowledge my account was debited!
They advertise free trials and then hope that people forgot and about it and never advertise it has to be cancelled so they get all this money for nothing and then they say in good faith waive the cancellation fee! Pathetic if she had good policies and procedures she would actually have the terms and conditions laid out and an electronic signature required at the end of them!
And also an email that we acknowledge them and a receipt of payments. Hi i have split stomick mucels after having my second baby 2 years ago and wondered if doing some of the exercise would do more damage? Hi Rosie. We would always recommend that you seek the advise of a medical professional who knows your unique situation before starting anything new.

Ashy Bines Bikini Body Challenge
Ashy Bines is a majorly controversial topic at the moment. She has created a massive media buzz around the internet but her many critics claim it is for mostly all of the wrong reasons. With thousands of girls considering purchasing her Clean Eating Diet Plan or joining an Ashy Bines Bikini Body Challenge location, I thought I would share my own experiences to help you make up your mind. The diet plan is more suitably described as a pdf guideline of the diet which Ashy follows before her Bikini Competitions. The basis of Clean Eating is to eliminate processed food and the toxins within them from your diet and eat food at its most natural state possible. There is a wealth of information, recipes, ideas and concepts of clean eating available freely on the internet. Ashy obviously had the smart idea to capitalise on the clean eating principles she used to shape up for her modelling competitions by targeting a market of young girls who were desperate to loose weight.
