"Allison is a great trainer. I am stronger physically and mentally. She really takes the time to build a program that works for you. I look forward to our sessions because I am seeing great results" -- Laura J., Short Hills, NJ


"Allison is passionate about health overall. It's not just about what's happening in the gym or during a workout; it's also important what you're eating, how you're sleeping, etc. She works with the whole body, mind and spirit!" -- Dana L., Madison, NJ


"I have worked with trainers for almost ten years and I find Allison to have all the qualities of a professional. Allison will tailor your every move to work your body and mind. It is rare for me to be so satisfied on a consistent basis." -- Rona G., West Orange, NJ


"Allison is exactly what a personal trainer should be. She gets to know her clients' strengths, weaknesses, desires and interests. She makes sure to understand where you are experiencing discomfort or pain. She uses all of this information, along with her knowledge, to come up with an individualized plan just for you. She is motivating and inspiring while being empathetic and kind - just the right balance. As a busy working mom, she understands how exercise can become way too low on a mom's priority list. I know all of this because I am a dedicated client of Allison's. She is honestly fantastic!!!!" -- Marnie D., Maplewood, NJ


"I began working out with Allison after a referral from my doctor.  I am so glad that my doctor gave me Allison's number!  I contacted Allison to help me lose weight and get healthier.  After a few sessions with Allison, I lost weight and started getting stronger.  Allison is helping me achieve my goals.  She's is very professional, punctual, and a great listener.  She specifically customizes all her exercises for me on a per-session basis.  I have some knee issues and she is helping build muscles to minimize knee pain.  Allison creates fun and challenging exercise routines and the workout is never boring.  She is accommodating of my schedule and very responsive via text or email.  If I an unable to make it to a regular session, Allison will try her best to fit me into another session.  She does not give up on me and is very encouraging!    Allison is currently helping me achieve additional health goals and keeps me motivated to change my lifestyle.  She has become a part of my life as well as our family's life and I plan on working with her throughout my upcoming pregnancy as well.  If you are looking to get healthier and the gym is not working out for you, give Allison a try.  She will do her best to help you in any way she can.

"I love working out with Allison. At our first session she and I set short and long-term goals and she has helped me keep them in mind during our sessions. Her patient and positive attitude makes you feel strong, powerful, and successful no matter your fitness level. Allison's down-to-earth vibe and caring personality make me look forward to each week's workout. She's the best!" -- Karen P., Jersey City, NJ


"Allison is FANTASTIC! I've worked with her for just about one year, and I am stronger and healthier because of our sessions. In my opinion, the best thing about Allison's style & overall approach to wellness is that she works with the total person. It's not just weights and repetitions - it's about taking care of the whole self, listening to your body, and feeling great wherever you are each day. I would highly recommend Allison Kalsched for anyone who wants to feel great both physically and mentally, while pushing themselves to improved strength and endurance." -- Janine M., Maplewood, NJ


"Allison is an amazing trainer. She truly loves what she does- taking time to know you- not just overall, but checking in with you throughout the workout adjusting as needed - pushing you or helping you to slow down if you are pushing too hard. She is truly knowledgable about the body and how it works and takes time to explain / answer any questions. I work out with her once a week and not only do I look forward to that time, I guard it fiercely. I cannot say enough good things about Allison and the work she does!" -- Pam L-H., Maplewood, NJ


"I started training with Allison to get myself back in shape for my son's Bar Mitzvah. She inspired me to reconnect with my inner athlete and learn to enjoy exercising again. She also helped me to look and feel great and fit into my dress for the big night! She's always totally int tune with how I am feeling and what my body (and mind) need from our training sessions. I always leave our workouts energized and smiling, even if I walked in feeling lethargic." -- Nicole G., Short Hills, NJ
