A former professional Dancer with the Isadora Duncan Dance Company, Allison is currently working as a private personal trainer, yoga teacher and group fitness instructor in New York City.
I recently finished the European tour of Melodrama where I traveled as the private trainer to Grammy award winning singer, Lorde.
In addition to my roster of private clients in Manhattan and Brooklyn, I also train at corporate offices.
I am professional and prepared with a great deal of experience training many different types of clients. You can relax, knowing you are in very capable hands.
I feel that what sets me apart as an instructor is my knowledge of anatomy and movement and my ability to cue and teach it effectively. My dance training makes my demonstration graceful, clean and consistent. Experience as a trainer has given me the ability to create programs that are extremely creative and effective. I always know the mistakes people will make before they make them and I instruct very strategically to minimize risk and to guide with great care.
I believe that a trainers job is to make measurable change based on the goals of an individual client while keeping them engaged, inspire and most of all, safe. This is a promise I can make to anyone considering working with me.

Allison is a rare find—a trainer who is attuned to what’s best for me and my body, not just in general, but that day and that session. She takes a holistic approach (recognizing a mind/body connection) and is well informed about best practices and new techniques, incorporating them into a personalized workout regimen (including exercises that I can practice on my own). On top of that, she’s fun—a delightful, lovely person whose spirit imbues every session, leaving me feeling good and better able to take on my daily challenges.
Allison Kimmel is a most skilled, creative and intuitive trainer. Her method incorporates being present in the work, awareness of breath and posture, the encouragement of good nutrition, a thorough understanding of the body and the importance of stretching as a complement to the work. Our progression has been organic. Her warmth, intelligence, gentle encouragement and expertise help me to meet, maintain, and surpass my goals. It is truly a pleasure to work with her.
Allison really helped me to increase my flexibility and reduce stress. Her attention to detail and personalized workout programs helped me to get results fast. I would definitely recommend her!
Allison is Fantastic! I have been training for almost a year and with her help, have lost over ten pounds! She provides a positive environment and challenges me with every workout. Training has made such a big difference for me and I am so glad that I made the investment.
Allison is a fantastic trainer who is so knowledgeable about all things body and nutrition. She's great at personalizing plans for you and your specific goals, while also pushing you for more. Highly recommend.
