Alyson's passion for fitness began with 25 years spent in a dance studio, as both a student and instructor.  Several years ago, she began to incorporate other forms of exercise and strength training into her life and was presented with the opportunity to be a fitness coach. It was a natural transition back to the class setting.  She began with certifications in CIZE Live and Insanity Live, then went on to earn certifications as an ACE Group Fitness Instructor and NASM Certified Personal Trainer.
