The most important relationship you’ll ever have is the one with your body. Ditch the drudgery of “exercise.” Move with JOY. Get INTO your body, and energize your life with confidence.

When was the last time you felt LOVE for your body? When was the last time you moved with JOY?

Welcome! I’m Allison and I’m thrilled you're here. 😊

As a certified First Degree Black Belt Nia instructor and creator of FusionFIT•30, I offer dynamic movement classes that combine dance, martial arts, and yoga in easy-to-follow steps.

Before I discovered Nia in 2008, exercising and sweating felt like something I had to do, rather than something I wanted to do. 

Now, in my Nia and FusionFIT•30 classes, I have so much fun that I don’t realize that I’m doing those things too. Yay for side benefits!

Here’s what I invite you to do in my classes (scroll down for the schedule):

  • Discover fun, ease, and joy, through a playful, vigorous, full-body workout flow
  • Develop a loving relationship with your magical body
  • Regenerate and renew as you build flexibility and strength in body and brain
  • Enhance your life with a workout that builds physical, mental, and emotional resilience

Join me for fabulous workouts that feel more like play time than drudgery!

"Allison’s classes are a great way to get a boost of energy, whole body workout, increase stamina, burn a lot of calories, and get on with your day. I always walk out with a smile on my face and feel like I can accomplish anything I want to for the rest of the day."

"I love dancing with Allison; her dedication and knowledge of the Nia approach allows me to sink into a deeper connection with my body. Often, after her classes I experience heightened emotional and mental clarity, plus I get an awesome and intelligent cardio workout!"

Shannon Schroter

"I always feel elevated in body, mind and spirit after Allison’s classes. She challenges me to sweat, offers the perfect focus or phrase to work with during the rest of the day, and she makes me laugh! Her passion, creativity, and joy are absolutely contagious. So much Fun, So much Yes!! "

Diana DeMarco
Massage Therapist

"FusionFit 30 is the perfect class. In 30 minutes I get do what I enjoy the most. I am able to engage my mind, my body, and my spirit as I exercise. This class offers the opportunity to work my body at the level I enjoy, with a smile on my face."

Susan Wilson

"I’ve been attending various Nia classes for about nine years, and while the modality of dance, martial arts and yoga is in itself a brilliant discipline, an instructor such as Allison endows the practice with grace, beauty and insight. Along with all these stellar attributes, Allison always brings to her classes playfulness and just plain fun!"

Karla Arens

"Moving, dancing, stretching, taking care of body and spirit—it’s always fresh, pleasurable, and challenging when Allison is guiding us. Besides inviting us to an excellent workout, she gives just the right amount of reminders about alignment, adapting for what is right for each body, and bringing awareness to how we are engaged—all without missing a beat in the movement."
