Real Bodies. Real Results.
When it comes to the process of physique change, there is a wide spectrum of what's considered "normal." While magazines and social media often promote unrealistic and unhealthy transformation photos, it's important to remember that real results depend on many factors far beyond just exercise and nutrition. What's more, as a coach, I feel that solely celebrating someone transition from a larger body into a smaller body can lead people to internalize the idea that diet and exercise is a “start and stop” process with a definitive beginning and end.
This is why I like to display my clients’ achievements not as “transformations” but as “results,” not as “before and afters” (since we all know there IS no “after”) but as ONGOING accomplishments clients have made by working with me.
It’s also why I call this testimonial page REAL BODIES REAL RESULTS. I want these photos to celebrate the reality of what it means to be in the process of achieving a healthy lifestyle, to be accurate depictions of authentic change. I hope their results inspire you to take control of your own choices and begin working towards your own!
"Working with Allison was one of the best decisions I’ve made! When I enlisted her help, I was 3 months postpartum with my second baby and having the hardest time getting myself back to where I wanted to be. Not only was she thorough and extremely knowledgeable, she was so incredibly encouraging and positive. Not only did I come out of my training with her back to my pre baby weight, but I have since then surpassed even my own expectations. Her guidance and coaching has helped to inspire me and lead a new lifestyle looking and feeling the best I ever have. And I couldn’t be more grateful!"- Danielle
"I WAS THRILLED TO DISCOVER ALLI'S COACHING. I have done the gym scene and it just isn’t for me. Alli designs amazing, challenging workouts that I am able to do at home! Alli’s nutrition plans are so incredibly detailed, and they really work! Even though my entire connection to Alli is virtual, it doesn’t feel that way. Any time I have a question about form, or nutrition, need encouragement or a push, Alli is always there in a very timely manner. In just two months I have seen major changes in my physique and have already dropped 12 pounds, nearly accomplishing my initial goals. I can’t wait to continue and see where Alli can take me"- Lori
"Alli has changed my life, from the inside out. When I came to Alli asking for help to lose weight and to get back into shape, she put together a customized plan for me which accommodated my busy lifestyle as a mom, wife and full time business woman. She takes the time to communicate with me on a consistent basis, and is always there to answer my questions. She keeps me inspired and motivated so that I can achieve my goals. I couldn't imagine this journey without her." - Stephanie
"WHEN I FIRST APPROACHED ALLISON with my goal of competing in a bikini competition, I thought she'd laugh, but she was so encouraging. I had a lot of weight to lose after having my baby and I was really intimidated because I had a lot of limitations too- I had to train from home a lot, I didn't have access to a lot of training equipment, and I was breast feeding so I had to eat more then normal too. Allison helped me accommodate all of that, and while it wasn't easy she was with me every step of the way and I never felt alone. With her help I competed in and WON my first bikini competition!" - Esther
"She didn't just help me lose weight. She helped me find myself."- Kristi
"All I have to say is that I tried everything to get my physique the way I wanted it and nothing worked. Her nutrition has me eating more then I ever thought I would be, but my bodyfat is lower. I am healthier, more energetic, bigger, fuller, you name it. She's brilliant." - Andrew
"No coaching experience has ever been so positive for me. Allison is the fifth online coach I've tried and I'll never look for another."
"I HAD BEEN TOLD THAT I'd not be able to get lean because of my thyroid issues. But I saw Alli train a few times and I knew she knew what she was doing so I emailed her anyhow, I don't know why. But she was happy to help from the start and I think the results speak for themselves. I don't even recognize my old pics anymore I hate looking at them because I am so happy with how I look. I'm bigger and stronger and I can actually see my abs now. She's genius." - Scott
"ALLI IS A BLESSING. I was in search for someone to help me with my contest prep. Through my internet research, I found Alli! Let me tell you I am so thankful that I found Alli. She emailed me right away when I had questions about her programs and which program I should choose. I had been dieting but was at a loss as to what the next step should be. I was preparing to enter into my first bikini contest and needed help!Alli guided me through the process and helped me pick the better plan to fit my needs. She was awesome the whole time. She responded to my emails, she answered my questions, always there when I needed her. Even when I realized that I was entering in to one of the largest competitions out there, we battled it together. She was very honest with me and that is what I needed and appreciated the most. Alli designed a program specifically for me and for my body type. She did not do a cookie-cutter plan. She truly dug deep to see what would best fit me and made adjustments along the way. She was on top of it all! There is no doubt in my mind that I could not have done this without her. She helped me shed the pounds that I needed to, helped me get my body into the best possible shape ever! I cherish my new found friend and coach. I plan to continue my next fitness journey with Alli. She has helped me see my inner fitness strength. Thank you Alli!!! You are the greatest!!" - Erin
"I HAD BEEN UNDER-EATING and OVER-TRAINING for so long, Allison actually had to feed me more and help me back off my cardio addiction to help get me the lean body I wanted. I never thought I'd be able to eat so much and do so little and have ripped abs." - Peter
"Mother of two and approaching 40 the time to step on stage was now. With her help I got in my best shape and came home with TWO trophies!"
"I WAS INTRODUCED TO ALLI through a friend because I had been struggling with a proper diet as well as wanting to compete in my first figure competition. The choice was life changing. She pulls no punches and pushed me to have confidence in myself and to compete. Her understanding of diet and fitness, her eating plan, the check ins to catalog my progress and her encouragement was exactly what I needed. She was always there for me and was able to put my mind at ease. Her attention to detail led me to a second place finish in my firs show and I am so grateful to her for her part in my journey. She continues to encourage and support me, not only as a coach but as a friend who has changed my life forever" - Cheme
"I've been working with Alli for almost two years. Most importantly, I find Alli to be a truly caring coach and person. She makes time to always be available for her clients. She accurately processes the data provided by her clients during check-ins and tailors each training and nutrition plan to give her clients the best chance at success." - Doug
"I SIGNED UP FOR MY FIRST NATURAL BODYBUILDING show in my mid 40's and signed up for Alli's contest prep. With her by my side now I've competed in several shows receiving numerous first places. And no one believe I'm over 50. Alli is always offering encouragement, advice and always there on the other end for an email or phont call as we get closer to the shows. What a wonderful person, coach and friend. I love her personal touch and everything is geared towards her client. It amazes me how she can look at photographs and make the changes to the meal plan to get me such unbelievable results. I have proudly recommended her to people at bodybuilding shows and gyms all the time and give all the credit to her. I do push myself, but I couldn't do this without her."
My goal was simply to get in better shape then my past show. I had NO idea I was capable of what I achieved. She pushed me harder then I anticipated but the results were worth it! I was so happy with what I was able to achieve!"
"I HAVE BEEN WORKING with Allison for a year now. I am a former NPC figure competitor and one that understands discipline and hard work, however, I was also one that was struggling with wrong eating, ineffective training and non consistency wrapped up in wrong thinking and an unhealthy mindset with food in general. Allison began my program completely opposite of what I was used to. I was shocked with how little cardio she began me with as well as training. I was introduced to tabatas and a new form of cardio which I absolutely love, however, when I was done after that first time, the first thoughts were "Is that it"? "This can't mean I am DONE with cardio"? But I was, and this was the first milestone towards my 'mental' and physical transformation.
Allison understands her clients, she takes the time and desires to KNOW them. I was blown away with the paperwork she 'requires' her clients to fill out, the details to her questions and what she asks for PRIOR to working with you are nothing I have ever seen before. Yes, I have been coached multiple times. Allison 100% is CUSTOMIZED, every single piece of it. She works with you not against you and she WILL help you as long as you are ready and willing to HELP yourself. I have not only transformed physically, but emotionally and mentally as well. I just can't say enough about how genuine, passionate and brilliant Allison is in regards to coaching. " - Mary
"I never thought that I'd look as amazing for my competition as I did. Prep was hard, and she pushed me, but she also supported me every step of the way..." - Kali
Initially I hired a coach because I figured I wasn't doing so well on my own and maybe a few months with someone else would help. I've now been with Alli for three years. I cannot imagine this without her. She's become more than my coach. She's a friend and mentor." - Elise
"Allison is encouraging, supportive, motivational and compassionate. She really makes you feel like she cares about your results and your goals and that matters a lot to me. I want to work with someone who inspires me and Allison inspires me."
" Allison's patience with me blew me away. I never felt uncomfortable checking in with her even if I hadn't done really well. She was always understanding and encouraging and helped me keep trying."-Abby
