Co-Owner / Instructor
In 2018 Allan was introduced to the world of Pilates as a co-owner and instructor at Club Pilates Laurel. Allan is living his life’s dream by incorporating his 20 plus years as a strength coach, while growing in his knowledge and ability as a Pilates Instructor to train members and operate Club Pilates Laurel alongside his wife (Kim). My wife and I are determined to make each of our Club Pilates studios like a family where through sound training guidance, warmth and encouragement we journey with our CP Family Members to live healthy lifestyles. We hope to make Club Pilates a cornerstone for health and wellness in the community of Prince George’s County Maryland for many years to come.
Allan’s journey into the health and wellness industry began as a strength coach started in 1998. He became certified and began coaching at small studios in Delaware and Maryland. Allan quickly recognized the need to learn new training methods and approaches to better suit the needs of his clients.
Allan believes exercise should be a regular part of everyone’s lifestyle habits which is why he really enjoys relating to and having fun with his clients as he sees them improving in their movement quality, strength and endurance. He is adept at designing and implementing programs for a wide spectrum of populations.
Allan has a BA degree in Criminal Justice from Hampton University. He holds the following certifications: Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist; FMS/certified, having learned how to identify and improve movement imbalances through corrective exercises; Level-2 StrongFirst Kettlebell Instructor. This certification is one of the more grueling certifications in the fitness industry requiring 3 straight days of intense training designed to test your physical proficiency, stamina and strength. Out of a class of over 60 individuals Allan was one of the one third that was able to achieve this status.
