CrossFit Competitor/Power & Olympic Lifter/Dream chaser

Passions: CrossFit & Olympic Lifting

Philosophy: Train hard and compete whenever possible. If opportunity doesn't knock, build a door.

Allison is a fierce competitor, fueled by her quest to qualify for the CrossFit Regionals and Games. She got hooked on the sport after a "humbling" experience getting “totally worked” doing her first WOD and hasn’t looked back. 

Her focus and relentless drive to get stronger have paid off with consecutive trips to the podium.  “My motivation comes from this desire to never feel regret, to chase my dream.” explains Allison. “I do a lot of visualization and positive affirmations. I tell myself anything is possible.” 

3 QUESTIONS with ALLISON:

What do you love about CrossFit?

I love CrossFit because there's always something to learn and something to adapt to. The community of crossfitters are undoubtably the most supportive and motivated individuals around. The sense of camaraderie in the sport is unique. 

What inspires you?

I have 2 favorite quotes, "what you seek is seeking you" by Rumi and "if opportunity doesn't knock, build a door." I admire my parents and their ability and willingness to support my life's goals. They always offer words of reason, a comforting shoulder, a kind word and are a pillar of strength. 

How do you spend rest days?

I love enjoying an acai bowl and a nap on rest days. Sometimes a stroll up Koko Head (all 1,000 steps ) keeps me sane. My guilty pleasure would have to be desserts!!!! Can’t get enough!
