Empowering people with Strength
and Knowledge



My Approach

I believe that training should be seen as a tool to help increase energy, mobility, strength, flexibility and all those good things that help you move and feel better. I think nutrition is used as a tool to build the body you want. More than often exercise is used as a tool to only lose weight. While it does help increase calorie expenditure and improve metabolism, etc..., it doesn't contribute that significantly to weight loss in the majority of the population. I want to challenge you to make changes so that you are eating for your goals and working out for your body. Let's move away from the cycle of thinking of workouts as punishment for poor food choices or lifestyle behaviours and start seeing it in a more positive and reinforcing light. 

I believe in a holistic approach to personal training and I strive to teach my clients how to achieve a balanced lifestyle. At Aprimavera Training, my philosophy goes beyond just simply going through the motions of a workout. I start from the ground up with my clients, even with advanced clients, in order to teach them the true fundamentals of working out and creating a whole body approach to fitness. Through the commitment and consistency that you provide, we work together to create permanent and lasting change in your life. I believe that the body is a representation of the mind. With a strong body, comes the development of even a stronger mind. The following things are what I believe produces results; these things are making changes in your:

Alison helped me to change my eating habits, and took my training and body to a whole new level! She taught me what, when and how to eat right in relation to my goals (building muscles, losing fat, etc.) and she designed a personalized program to truly transform my body.
She has a very sensitive approach, and is extremely dedicated and careful of coaching you in a way that is not only super effective but also sustainable. She does not only coach you to transform your body, but also to transform your health, and the relation you have with your body, food and exercise, in a truly mindful way. Once you start training with her, if you’re dedicated and consistent, you will not only see awesome changes, but you’ll make of fitness a lifestyle, that’ll last forever and not just a few months!

I can’t say enough good things about Alison. For years I worked out in gyms and never lost any weight or gained any muscle. Then, I came across Alison’s ad, hired her and have been working out with her since April of this year. I look forward to spending time with her each and every week. She’s really changed my life for the better.
