Allison has blended her deep personal passion for health in all areas of life with her extensive experience and education in both personal training and psychology. Her love of food and fitness began in high school when she was tired of battling with her weight and decided to get a handle on it once and for all. That love turned into an obsession. While attending the University of California at Irvine, Allison became enamored with biochemistry and the mechanics of fat burning and its manipulation.She went on to earn her M.A. in Psychology, and began to use her cumulative education to effect change in her clients that other trainers could not.Allison wrote and published her first book The Girlfriend’s Guide to Fitness and Fat Loss in 2012/2013, and is currently working on The Busy Mom’s Guide to Fitness and Fat Loss (working title), as well as a book that integrates her three areas of expertise and their intricate relationship to one another. She has been selected as a coach for the Orange County chapter of Girls On The Run, a character program aimed at teaching girls about health and body image through running.
