“As one who is too undisciplined, I rely on my regular sessions with Allie to maintain and improve my physical fitness. Allie is encouraging and charming while pressing me to probably do more that I would have expected of myself. A valuable “investment” in my own health and fitness!” “Doctor recommended!!!”
– Male client age 69
“Why do I take classes at FitFocused? It’s very simple: Allie has given me the power to believe in myself. She has shown me that hard work and dedication really do pay off. She inspires me every time I take one of her classes and she knows how to gently push me to take that extra step to test my strength and stamina. Allie’s classes are fun and not intimidating at all!
Allie is nothing short of a true professional who takes her job very seriously. She always has a smile to make you feel at ease and comfortable. I know that she genuinely cares about each and every one of her clients. I’ve never felt so motivated to work hard to reach my fitness potential!”– Chrissy Cowell
“When I first called Allie, it was 8 months after the birth of my second child. I was having joint problems and couldn’t walk up a flight of stairs without getting winded, never mind keep up with an infant and a toddler. I had always been a runner, but life had gotten in the way and I was exhausted and cranky all of the time. Those first couple of sessions with Allie were tough, but it made me realize how much work I had to do to get back to where I was fit, healthy and happy. And Allie was the perfect partner to help me do that – inspiring, non-judgmental and super fun. Today, despite being a busy working mom, fitness is one of my top priorities. I am back to running and Allie has even inspired me to start doing races again and (mini!) triathlons. Allie changed my life and I am really grateful!” – Moira
