Growing up a dancer in the Chicago suburbs, Allison (Al) has always loved the fitness industry. From "training" friends for their dance company auditions at 10 years old, to becoming a certified Pilates instructor at 23, Allison has always strived to share her love for fitness with those around her. Al fills her days with developing new class plans to cross-train her young dancers, and spice up her weekly Pilates classes, always bringing her knowledge of Anatomy, Physiology, and Kinesiology to the forefront. Her BFA in Dance from Western Michigan University allowed her to train with world-renowned choreographers and experience tastes of the professional dance world before graduating. Allison's passion and dreams are to spread fitness for every type of person to show how healthy living can not only transform your physical health but also your mental and emotional.
