Managing Director, Master Trainer
Alli, originally from Connecticut, moved to the Bay Area in May of 2000, after being offered a position as a personal trainer with AXIS. She was excited about the focus on education, palpable positive environment, and the chance to make a difference in people’s lives. She was also intrigued by the possibility of being a part of a growing business. Throughout her career at AXIS she has worked as a personal trainer, a team leader, and a facility manager. As the Managing Director, she works directly with Scott Norton, Founder & Owner, to ensure that AXIS continues to evolve and improve every day. "We believe each client should have a life changing experience through their training at AXIS. We want every client who walks in the door to feel welcomed and encouraged that they can do what they set out to do and more! We are committed to always having a fun and positive community, where our trainers can continue to learn and be challenged, where they feel valued and supported, and where they can grow as individuals."

"Allison Allen is the best trainer EVER! First of all, I am 73 years old and I HATE to exercise. Alli makes my time at AXIS fun. She is caring, sharp, funny, and great with the whip. She knows all my avoidance tricks and she doesn't let me get away with anything. She makes me toe the line. When it is time to leave I am still happy to be finished, yet I always return."
"During my 30 years as a software engineer at Hewlett-Packard, I stayed in shape by running three to five miles a day and using the company's fitness center. I first learned about AXIS when I retired and began looking for a new place to work out. I had some arthritis pain and the beginnings of osteoporosis. One of my friends suggested that I work with a trainer and specifically recommended Allison. Getting back into regular exercise helped me to lose twelve pounds and a dress size. I'm standing up straighter, and my balance has improved tremendously. At 84 years old I am proud to be able to do a chest press with 20 pound dumbbells, which has helped keep my arms in shape for sleeveless shirts! I've been absolutely delighted with Alli. She's a very nice person, and we've become friends over the last 14 years that we’ve been working together."
