About Allison Jackson:
Allison Jackson Fitness originally started as FitMomsofNJ.com in 2010 when Allison began to realize how many of her mom friends were struggling to lose weight, looking for ways to incorporate exercise into their busy lives, or trying to figure out how to prioritize their needs. health while taking care of their family.
Fitness is his passion. As a teenager, he used to read his father’s Muscle & Fitness magazines and try to lift weights and work out in his basement without ending up with a weight bench and some dumbbells. Her mother took her to Jazzercise classes with her. She struggled with her weight, but it was during those early years that she got the fitness bug.
Before being a fitness competitor, she played field hockey throughout high school and college. While she was in college, she became a certified aerobics instructor (back when they called it “aerobics” and leotards and leg warmers were in style). She also received personal trainer certification from her. She taught everything from step aerobics to kickboxing (who remembers Billy Blanks’ Tae Bo style?). She then started running…she ran 5Ks, 10Ks, half marathons, some sprint triathlons, two marathons (New York and Philadelphia), a Warrior Dash and a Tough Mudder.
But she wanted more.
In the late ’90s, she discovered fitness competitions (think bodybuilding and beauty pageants), which involved an exercise routine and a posing routine. She took gymnastics lessons when she was 25 with a class full of 9-year-olds. It wasn’t her cup of tea.
Fast forward to 2012, when she discovered a coach who was also an IFBB figure pro and was willing to prepare her for her first figure competition. Most organizations had eliminated the exercise part of the routine and she was ready to finally face this challenge.
She competed in her first competition in 2012 and continued competing until last year when she earned her pro card – four years in the making!
What she loves more than anything is when people say they feel inspired by what she has done or motivated to try exercising.
