“I am so grateful to have met Allison! She is helpful, compassionate, and intuitive – which makes her an exceptional personal trainer. It is easy to relate to her. I could see her being a good fit for just about anyone.
She wants to understand her clients’ personal stories & goals & she will create a workout based on an integrated understanding of the individual, not some cookie-cutter version that you might find with trainers at chain gyms.
Allison also takes the time to educate. She is a good instructor & she will share educational materials as well as her own writings from her blog. She is a reliable educator, too – she is a true athlete & really seems to understand different fitness levels, recovery, food choices, energy, sleep….everything!
I trust her judgment & respect her knowledge. Highly recommended.”
“Wednesdays are my weigh in days, and as of this Wednesday morning I have dropped 38.2 pounds. I attribute my success to Allison’s coaching. She has discussed my foods with me, and I haven’t had to give up anything that I really miss. She is very intelligent in her exercise routines; she spots weaknesses well and targets them with exercises that are really effective.
When I started with Allison 3.5 months ago my knees ached and one of my ankles was so sore and weak that it affected life quality. I am pain free now, getting slimmer and more fit each day, and I feel so optimistic about finishing this journey that I’m on….to lose another 40 pounds.”
“I have have been working with Allison for several weeks now on what I thought to be such small movements and basic things as breathing correctly. Now with just a few weeks under way I am starting to work with load again and feel great! I have been dealing with pain during my sleep, sitting and standing.
I woke up yesterday and said to my husband that this is the first time in a LONG time that I don’t hurt as I rose from my bed. Thank you Allison!”
“I’ve been seeing Allison for a couple of months. She’s wonderful! In addition to being warm and encouraging, she is extremely knowledgeable. I’ve learned a great deal from her about both fitness and nutrition. I’ve become noticeably stronger and my posture has improved dramatically (which I never thought could happen!).
Working out with Allison is also a lot of fun. I recommend her highly.”
“I am into my second block of 9 sessions with Allison. The reason I am doing this is because of Allison’s skill and professionalism. In short, she knows her stuff. I needed back surgery a few months ago and she has helped me build strength in my back without putting undue strain on my spine. Aside from her skills as a trainer/physical therapist, Allison’s personality is a definite plus.
She has a great sense of humor, is interested in her clients and is accommodating to the clients’ schedule. A five star rating!”
“I have been working with Allison for over two months now and it has been amazing. She took the time to get to know me and my goals, and to assess my strengths and weaknesses in order to devise a plan to get me where I want to go. She is very knowledgeable in both fitness and nutrition and I love that she is always continuing to learn more. It is apparent she truly loves what she does. She is intuitive, motivating, and highly encouraging. She has not only inspired me, she has helped me to really see that if I’m willing to put in the work, I can get to the fitness level I want.
I had been working out on my own off and on for about three years and I am amazed at the progress I’ve made with Allison in just over 8 weeks. I can feel I am getting stronger, but I don’t feel like I’m killing myself in the gym. Her workouts are challenging AND fun. I highly recommend Allison to anyone looking for an excellent trainer.”
“Allison has been the major contributor to coming back from a year-long back injury. In just a few sessions Allison was able to identify the root cause of my severe back pain.She gave me a set of simple exercises that I can do when the pain returns, these can be done anywhere and I have used them in many a parking lot when my back spasms after being in the car.
She has allowed me to return to my normal activities while working with me to strengthen the muscle groups that have contributed to the instability and pain in my back. She is also an incredible resource on diet and overall health issues. She is a solid listener and responds with compassion.”
“Before training with Allison I thought I was fit because I ran and cycled a lot. But after years of this I had chronic muscle and joint pain, and poor overall fitness. Through balanced, whole body training, Allison helped me gain strength and flexibility. Trimming down my waistline was a nice benefit too, though I had to buy all new pants.”

“Allison is a great fitness partner! She takes a holistic approach to your health and physical development. In the gym, she is focused on your form…but also on your state of mind. She possesses a solid educational foundation and augments that by staying on top of cutting edge research in nutrition, movement theory and the body mind connection.
She’s professional, motivating and genuinely interested in helping her clients move to a better state, physically and mentally. I’m far from the perfect client, but she’s always graceful and encouraging.”

“I recently completed the 10 day detox program offered by Pure Energy Wellness and really enjoyed it! I stayed committed the entire 10 days and unless I did it accidentally I completely eliminated sugar, artificial sweeteners, soy, cow dairy, wheat, caffeine and alcohol! The first few days were very challenging since I was a daily coffee drinker. I drank daily diet coke or iced tea with sweet-n-low and enjoyed my white wine on a regular basis.
“After the first 3 days it was all up hill. I slept better, had more energy, noticed and up tick in my ability to focus and concentrate at work and best of all was able to read the messages from my body about what type of food it needed. For example, it was very easy to tell when I had too many carbs and that I needed a protein to balance myself out, and vise versa.
“During the 10 days I also switched to green and herbal tea and learned how to juice my vegatables. During the entire 10 days I ate a little less food, never felt hungry or starved and enjoyed many things that I had already been including in my diet (like nuts, steak, eggs, etc.) and at the same time lost 5 pounds!
“I’m continuing to keep the same items of food I eliminated for the 10 days, out of my diet permanently with the exception of a glass of wine on the weekend. I would highly recommend this program to anyone that is striving to eat better, feel more energized and just wanting overall better health!
“Thanks Allison for pointing me in the right direction!”

“I was skeptical about beginning a personal training relationship with Allison. She was the fifth person I had signed up with in the last 10 years. Now, I cannot imagine ever looking for a new trainer again. She is by far the best I have ever worked out with. First of all, she takes a holistic approach with attention to mind, emotion, diet and training.
Second, she is an exceptional listener. Then she was able to put together a specialized plan for my needs (improve my golf game, age more gracefully, feel great). In just a couple of months, I’ve met all those goals and more. On top of that, I actually enjoy the workout, which is a first for me. She is amazing!”

“I have been a faithful member of the “Do It Yourself Fitness Club.” I purchase books, magazines and videos and go about training myself. It worked pretty well until I reached my 60′s. Part of my routine is to walk a 3 mile circuit at least three times a week. It is great walking outside in the fresh air, but I found that one of my knees was swelling and hurting more than I wanted to admit. I tried the “Do It Yourself” bit of making this go away by icing after walking and other home remedies.”
“My daughter suggested that I sign up for some sessions with Allison and see if she could help. I am delighted to tell you that she has helped me greatly. I have learned that my technique was not always correct in my “Do It Yourself” system. There is great reward in doing exercise the right way. Allison helped me to loosen up the tight muscles and strengthen the weak ones. She also noticed that I had an unnatural gait to my walk and corrected that. This has helped me to enjoy walking for fitness again! Thanks so much Allison!”
“I initially came to Allison for strength training and for help in restoring mobility and strength to my shoulder after an old injury. She has helped me immensely with these goals as well as others in a varied training program tailored to my needs as they evolve. Additionally, Allisonʼs passion for healthy living has made me much more conscious about where my food comes from and how it is produced. She is caring, knowledgeable, and brings a lot of fun to the workout.”
“I wanted you to know that I have forwarded your email and website around to several people at the office, and everyone is really impressed with the things that can be done just through diet alone. I wanted you to know people were so impressed with you, and I have to say that I am more impressed with you than most of my doctors.
“I had never heard of Pranic psychotherapy until Allison introduced me to it and I’m so thankful that she did! I did not know what to expect but I was intrigued and I trust Allison wholeheartedly.
I booked my first session upon preparing for an emotionally challenging trip and I knew I needed help with channeling my emotions and caring for my mind-body. I ended up completely surrendering to the entire process as Allison put me under a much needed meditative state.
The digestive issues like diarrhea disappeared after this session and I was finally able to sleep once again. I felt lighter, at peace, grounded and recharged but in a calm and rejuvenated way. I stayed in this state for a couple of days and it was just what I needed at that time.
I experienced so many immediate benefits from my first session that I needed another when I felt myself becoming unbalanced again. This experience was completely different from the first one! Instead of surrendering, my mind-body released a lot of built up energy from a stressful month and brain recovery for the last 2.5 years.
I shed tears throughout the session. My mind was alert rather than meditative. While on the table, I felt a lot of negative energies leaving me and it felt great! I love how immediate the benefits are!
I am excited about continuing my pranic psychotherapy sessions remotely now that Allison has moved. I’m not sure how it works but I dig it! Thank you for sharing your phenomenal healing work and for introducing me to something new!”
