Your Results Really Matter!
Helping clients reach their fitness goals is of utmost importance to me. Here are some success stories!
I’m a big fan of Alison’s. Right from the beginning, I felt comfortable around her, which for someone who is shy and who has been sedentary for a good number of years, says a lot. She is warm and welcoming, but also very focused and certainly not a dillydallier – you walk in and get going! Her sessions are dynamic, varied, and well-paced. She always seizes the opportunity to increase the intensity of my workouts, thus keeping me engaged both physically and mentally. I highly recommend her!
I am beyond thankful that I found Alison! She has been supportive of my goals and pushes me a little further each time. When I think I have reached a max, she has the confidence in me that I don’t have in myself, to push it a little further. She was flexible during the pandemic to shift things around so I could work out with her on a regular basis even with distance. Thank you for pushing me, supporting me, and guiding me through my fitness goals and journey.
Alison will help you reach your goals, and have fun doing it. She is so detail oriented and personal! Every workout is pre-planned before you arrive, and is custom designed to help you meet your fitness targets. She breaks down exactly how to do every exercise, so you know you are doing it right, and then she continuously challenges you to keep gaining and getting stronger as you go.
When I started working out with Alison, I told her what my goals were for my body and my fitness, but I also shared my fears: I wanted a workout that would help me stay strong as I get older, would help me look great now, but one that wouldn’t feel too hard to keep me from coming back. She really listened to what I said, and makes our time together super fun. I’ve made a ton of progress in terms of how much I can lift, how flexible I am, and how I look in my bathing suit!
I recommend Alison all the time. Working out with her has been incredibly positive in my life, and I feel like I have never looked better or been stronger.
I have always dreaded working out and wasted big bucks on gyms and boutique fitness. When a friend told me Alison changed her outlook on fitness, I was skeptical. After my first session, I was optimistic. After a month, I was OBSESSED. Alison’s workouts are always so diverse, challenging and fun! She’s great at explaining what to do, what muscle(s) it’s working, and why it’s important. Alison is such a pleasure to spend time with too. I always look forward to our sessions and they seem to fly by.
Working with Alison has truly been life changing. Not only does she challenge me physically, she makes the extra effort to ensure I’m taking care of myself mentally and emotionally. Anyone who’s ever dieted, weight trained, and/or suffered from an eating disorder knows how important it is to include all elements of health. Training with her is holistic, thoughtful.
Sessions can be physically rigorous and demanding, but they’re also some of THE best workouts I’ve ever done. Thanks to our sessions and her support, I’ve been able to improve my fitness – all-around.
Alison has reinvigorated my passion for fitness and motivated me to get into the best shape of my life.
I struggled with maintaining my weight and fitness goals after the birth of my daughter. Despite my efforts, I found it difficult to design an effective workout that fit the constraints of being a new mom.
Alison designed customized workouts that have been challenging while amazingly efficient in targeting problem areas. Her individualized approach and excellent knowledge are a perfect combination for a personal trainer!
Absolutely phenomenal! I started working out with Alison the end of last year and I’m so glad I found her. Her workouts will kick your booty but won’t leave you hobbling the next day! She is very creative and keeps everything fun! Plus she has the best 90’s playlist lol. Not only is she fantastic at her job, she is also genuinely a nice and caring person. This is clearly her passion and she cares about doing what’s right for you!
I realize I am aging which I have no control over, but just how I age? That decision is mine. This is why after a friend referred me to Alison, that I committed myself to see her and get back into shape. Alison has personalized each workout to my ability, yet presents reasonable challenges for me to reach weekly. The results have been truly remarkable. I feel better, look better, and my clothes have loosened considerably. I am much stronger with far greater endurance than I’ve had in decades! If your heart’s desire is to look better, feel stronger and get back some of your younger self, then make the commitent and work with Alison. I guarantee you will be pleased with the results!
Alison’s personal training is absolutely top-notch. I heard about her through a friend of mine who has been seeing her for several years. I have not been disappointed! My wife and I both go to see her a few times a week and we have been thriled with her professionalism, as well as her kind, but firm spirit. She has a very nice gym set up, and it is very clean. She individualizes workouts to whatever your goals are, and I’m just really impressed with her knowledge. She definitely pushes me farther than I would given my own devices which I really appreciate. She is also very flexible, reasonably priced, and just a down to earth person who is supportive and super easy to deal with. Highly recommend Alison if you are looking for accountability and results!

I have been a distance runner for several years, and I started working with Alison to add consistent strength workouts in hopes of increasing my endurance and resiliance over the long miles and long work days. In just five weeks, I’m already noticing changes in my body: I’m standing taller and running stronger. Alison’s workouts hit that perfect sweet spot right at the intersection of challenging and achieveable, and she use positivity and humor to motivate me to push past what I think I can do. Having Alison there monitoring my form also makes me feel confident that I can lift heavier or do exercises I find intimidating without injurin myself. Working out in her studio is a safe space where I don’t have to worry about all the weird faces and noises I make when exercising. Her nutrition counseling has provided the perfect extra accountability and advice to help me fuel the active and demanding life I want to enjoy. Honestly I cannot say enough good things about the whole experience! I look forward to continuing with Alison!
Alison is the best personal trainer I have ever worked with. I personally have always sought out someone that could help with accountability and technique. I have always struggled working out at gyms because I felt like my form was always wrong, and like I had no idea what I was doing. As a golfer Alison personalizes workouts that are perfect for me. She helps me feel comfortable and confident to work out with or without her. She is truly such a genuine person who wants people to be their best self. I am so thankful for her help & guidance!
Working with Alison has been a complete game changer for me. I have started so many programs/trainers in the past and a few weeks in I failed. Every. Single. Time. Each of the programs I tried before were the extreme, all or nothing type with workout schedules and diets that were unsustainable long term. Life happens and you need something that is fluid and can be adapted as needed. Working with Alison on fitness and nutrition has given me the tools I need to make adjustments when needed. This allows me to stay consistent. I’m truly blown away how actually simple it is and how much progress I am seeing. I’m thankful for Alison’s guidance!
Alison is a wonderful human and a highly skilled personal trainer. Her home studio feels like a decadent retreat compared to the typical gym environment. I always feel at ease and taken care of while I’m at her studio all the while being pushed to my physical limits. She’s innovative in her training plans yet always puts her clients goals and needs first. I continue to train with her (and encourage others, too!) for the high quality motivation, support and inspiration that her training style offers.
Alison is a fantastic personal trainer. I’d never worked with a personal trainer before, and I was a little nervous. She made it super easy and accessible. She’s a great motivator and a good teacher. She explains what she wants and the purpose of each exercise I am doing extremely well. If you are looking for a personal trainer who will listen to you and help you reach your fitness and health goals look no further!
I was first introduced to Alison by her fitness videos on Instagram. I began to follow her because I admired her simple, streamlined style and easy to follow moves. I have since worked with Alison in her fitness studio and it was a blast! Every week she would come up with new and challenging exercises. Alison knows just how to target muscle groups to get the results you want. I feel stronger and more confident. I know the strength I am building with Alison will serve me well as a runner and cyclist. Alison’s knowledge and enthusiasm for fitness is inspiring!
I’ve been training with Alison for about a year and a half now and, with her help, I can honestly say I’m in the best shape of my life. I’ve always been pretty active but with Alison’s workouts, motivation, and support, I’ve been able to take my fitness to the next level. I look better, run faster, and have gotten significantly stronger and more toned. She tailors the workouts to my schedule, with shorter workouts during my busier months and longer workouts during slower times. Every workout is different and fun yet challenging. Alison is always available to answer questions and offer support. I would highly recommend Alison’s training services.
Please allow me to introduce Alison Smith ~ personal trainer extraordinaire! Alison is highly motivated in helping you achieve your desired results. She will tailor your workout to meet your goals. I’m highly energized and self-motivated, yet Alison knows just which buttons to push or words to use to take me to the next level of intensity. Initially, my goal was weight loss. However, over the 6 months that I have worked with Alison she has made me realize physical conditioning is about so much more than the number on a scale. I am much stronger, have muscle definition, reshaped and toned areas of my body, I drink more water, eat better and have an overall sense of increased stamina and health. As a “fifty-something” woman, Alison came into my life at the right time. We have worked very hard at attaining and achieving my goals. No two workouts have been the same and I look forward to each and every session with Alison. Make a decision and commit to better health…do this for yourself! Alison will help make your goals & dreams come true!
Alison is by far my favorite trainer I’ve ever worked with. She’s encouraging, challenging and energizing. She makes the workouts enjoyable even on the harder days. Alison has a beautiful private gym with everything you could ever need. She even lets you pick your own music! Alison is very professional and knows just how to tailor a program to your specific requirements. Don’t hesitate to let Alison help you reach your goals!
I have always been fairly healthy and fit but Alison has challenged me in a whole new way to reach my goals and surpass my expectations. She has taught me so much about how to exercise and how to do it right. I have never been one to want a personal trainer but Alison has completely changed my lifestyle.
Alison is incredibly talented at what she does. I met her at a wedding expo and luckily won the personal training sessions she was offering. After just the initial consultation, I knew I was going to sign up for more sessions with her! She somehow knows exactly what moves/workouts/weight limits are going to challenge me to reach the goals I told her I had. Even mid-session she’ll gauge how I’m performing and adjust as necessary (always ensuring I’m being challenged and that I’m being safe). She’s constantly trying to improve her own fitness and it’s incredibly evident. For further info on some specifics for my sessions: I am active duty Air Force and have to maintain fitness for my job, but I also began taking pole fitness classes and wanted to improve. Additionally, this was my first year doing half marathons and kept getting just under 2 hours, but couldn’t seem to get much faster. I knew for all of the things that drive me I needed to break out of my plateau and find something that was going to improve my fitness which, for me, happened to be weight training (I avoided it like the plague). After having worked with Alison for just over a couple months now I have already found that I have drastically improved. Like I said, she knows just how to challenge me and find the path to those goals I so desire. Additionally, Alison has offered insight into the workouts I tell her I do outside of our sessions and passes along info to keep challenging me between our sessions.She often reminds me that I’m stronger than I think I am. My fitness is always improving and my confidence is through the roof! If you’re even thinking of hiring a personal trainer, I suggest giving her a shot – you honestly will not regret it! Seriously–thanks Alison!
