Geri’s story…

I am 56 years old and have always had an active life until my back problems resulting in surgery that did not relieve the problem.  So lower back problems and sciatica have also been a constant struggle for me.  I’m also a three time cancer survivor.  Yay!

About 1 year ago, I started training with another trainer at a different facility, but my back was always aggravated after the workouts.  Then about six months ago I started with Allison and I have not had one day of back or sciatica pain since.  She has shown me exercises I can do if my back goes out at home, but I’ve not had to use them yet.  My strength level has improved 200% including muscle and balance.

My husband had a bad stroke back in February and instead of sending him to a rehab program at the hospital I really thought Allison could help him, and she has!  Her focus on his needs is amazing. She’s challenging him to do more and he loves it.

She has also been very helpful with my nutrition, I always thought I had that going for me and well now I know I do.  I go to her three times a week and every time I look forward to the workout. I would not change a thing, as of now I have lost over 15 pounds, but most of all I’m strong and healthy. 

Find Organic Food

Widespread Organic 

Widespread organic is a website dedicated to connecting restaurants, farmers, markets, and advocacy organizations directly to their customers and vice versa.  We believe that the future of our WORLD depends on changing our food system to a local, organic and sustainable model.

We believe that people should be more connected with their food and with the people who grow, produce, manage, prepare, and care for the plants and animals that end up providing us with the nutrition and health that we all need.  Widespread Organic is the only online geo based local organic sustainable food guide.  Locate organic local food in any city.

Widespread Organic is now available on the Pure Energy Wellness website under the resource page.  This website is an amazing tool for when you’re traveling and on the hunt for organic food.  I’ve been so frustrated in the past because of not being able to find organic restaurants and markets in other cities while on the road.  This eliminates the frustration of it all.  Be sure to check it out!

Small Group Personal Training in PDX

Increase your level of performance at any age and feel good about yourself while creating lasting change!

Like private personal training, the exercises will still be specific to your body and fitness level.  When it comes to weight lifting, we all have different needs.  That’s why I’m so excited to start this group and share my knowledge.

You’ll learn how to keep hormones balanced with energizing exercises which help heal your metabolism.  Also, how to avoid energy depletion and a slow down of the metabolic rate.

Stability training will be a large component of the workout, which can be so crucial in preventing injury, improving performance and posture.  We’ll focus on different skills and circuits each week, using Swiss balls, Bosu, kettle bells, medicine balls and more!

My training will also include my monthly Eating for Pure Energy coaching sessions.
