Hi, I'm Allie!
While in high school there was always competition (track & volleyball) to keep me busy and moving around but as an adult I got bored quick. I got stuck in the boring day-to-day tasks, and with boredom came FOOD! And usually the unhealthy type.
Back in my young 20's I developed this theory in my head:
"If I ran 4 miles a day 5 days a week then I could eat all the delicious, unhealthy food I wanted and not get fat."
This eventually lead to THREE phases when it came to my body.
Phase 1: Running a lot, weak, soft, no muscle tone, and eating junk food on the daily. (Trying to outwork my bad diet)
Phase 2: Still running a lot, skinny, no muscle, and I decided to quit eating. (Trying to starve myself to be fit)
I thought food was evil and running was going to save me. I was running up to 6-7 miles a day and eating ONLY 2 meals a day.
There was always this back and forth cycle of too much or not enough. Also known as the Yo-Yo diet and it just wasn't working.
I felt STUCK!
Phase 3: BALANCE! (it took a while to get here 🤦🏻♀️)
Finally, the day came when the Gold's Gym in my hometown had their 12-week challenge (2012).
I SIGNED UP to see what I was capable of and I discovered a few things....
Fitness is 90% mental and 10% physical, you need to dig deep and find what TRULY motivates you and what will help you change.
But when it's all said and done, fitness and nutrition come down to just three things....
Is this something I can sustain for the rest of my life?
Am I happy?
Does this make me feel good?
If any of those answers are no, something needs to change! I created TFL Trainer to step by step teach women how to live with a balance between fitness and life.
I've taken my years of experience working with clients to get the same amazing results I had, and created the BEST program there is to break the cycle, lose the weight, and find the love for yourself again.
