We had the good fortune of connecting with Asha Lee and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Asha, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The success of Pop Physique San Marino has definitely been the inclusivity and affordability factors. There are so many boutique fitness studios, but mine is set apart because we strive to make sure everyone feels comfortable and can take class. No prior experience is needed and all fitness levels are welcome. We have a wide range of ages that attend class and it is very important to me that everyone feels comfortable. I like to think Pop Physique San Marino is for everybody and every body which is a very important distinction.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
First stop would be a class at Pop Physique of course! Then we would have grab take out from San Marino Cafe and have a picnic at Lacy Park. Wandering around the park for our afternoon stroll and letting our kids play in the many secret spots throughout the park would be ideal. Lastly a sweet treat from Swirlz Yogurt in San Marino is a must!
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
First and foremost, my mother has guided me from day one. She has encouraged me to go for my dreams and never give up. She taught me early on that hard work does in fact pay off. She worked hard to build a business from scratch and worked many hours but still made time to attend every event for my sister and me. She deserves all the credit for helping me reach my fullest potential. Even today she is the one I call and she always knows how to make me feel better if I am discouraged or disappointed. She is also the one that celebrates all my accomplishments each and every time not matter how big or small. Her love, support and encouragement has helped me get to where I am today and this is dedicated to her.
