The Finish Line

Allison Duxbury has been working individually with our daughter Kaela for the past three years. Now at age 10, Kaela has a great understanding of the importance warming up, has learned a great variety of stretching techniques and has increased her flexibility significantly. Allison has contributed to Kaela becoming very successful on the national and international levels of competitive Irish dancing. She researched and developed a customized plan for stretching and increasing strength for this athletic and artistic art form. Training sessions with Allison are both intense and fun. Kaela looks forward to her sessions with Allison because they include a variety of activities, great explanations of the benefits and above all – are challenging. Even though Kaela comes out of her sessions tired, she always smiles. Allison has taught our daughter to understand how to take care of herself as an athlete and has given her a skill that will last a lifetime. – Maura Gray and Bill Milewski

I had three beautiful babies within three years, and as soon as my youngest entered Pre-School, I decided it was time to begin re-toning my body.

At my first personal training session with Allie, she took my baseline measurements and had me take a baseline fitness test. Having these stats is motivational to me as I can monitor my progress each time we retest. Allie’s personal training sessions are customized, her workout routines are varied and keep my interest while continually challenging me as my abilities increase.

One of the many great benefits of working out with Allie is that when the weather is warm, we work-out outside in beautiful Hadlyme – we will go for walks wearing weighted vests, we’ll bring the BoSu ball, bands and medicine balls into the yard, or we’ll do some intense exercise on the trampoline.

In the winter I’ll get my cardio on the spinning bike, stair machine or by kickboxing. As my abilities have improved, I have taken more of her classes such as hiking through Gillette’s Castle and summer Swim Classes. This fall I began taking her yoga pilates class to work on balance and her ball class for a cardio and weight training workout.

Allie is a fantastic teacher in these classes and shows the class how the exercises can be varied so that they are easier for beginners or more challenging for those who have been taking her classes regularly. Allie is very encouraging and motivational, she will push me to my limits and respects me when I have reached those limits.

I am achieving my goals and seeing results, all the while having fun along the way. I feel great and it is so rewarding to make visible progress, which is a constant motivation.

Allie has made it easy for me to maintain an effective fitness routine.– Robbin Myers
