Allison began her career in holistic health by first spending 15 years as a competitive gymnast. Her passion for teaching soon grew and lead her to pursue an exercise science degree from Georgia State University, while working part-time as a gymnastics coach and a fitness professional. After the birth of her two beautiful boys she soon discovered the state of her health had drastically changed. She began to question her experience of modern medicine and how it was working for her. Soon after she started to become fascinated with holistic practices and how the body has great potential to heal itself naturally. This lead her to study master-level courses in holistic health, nutrition, exercise science, and rehabilitation with the CHEK Institute in San Diego, CA. By learning how to gradually change her nutrition and lifestyle, she was able to overcome asthma, digestive problems, and chronic inflammation, just by changing what she ate and how she moved. Feeling personally empowered by her experiences, she began sharing her knowledge with clients, and as a result, formed Pure Energy Wellness in 2004. Allison has now been a fitness and nutrition professional for almost 20 years and her experience with each client has shaped her practice to become what it is today. Most recently she’s completed her Movnat certification, a comprehensive, holistic and mindful approach to the full range of natural human movement abilities. She’s currently offering classes and private sessions focusing on natural human movement skills in the gym and out in nature. “I love connecting with people, helping them feel better, providing them with tools they never knew they had, developing self awareness around food and movement. Thank you for your curiosity on how to be the best self you can be! I look forward to helping you help yourself.”
