About Allison

Hi there! Thanks for checking out my bio. Here's a little blurb that was written about me. "While working towards her BFA in choreography and dance, with a focus on kinesthesiology, Allison Vernon-Thompson suffered an ankle injury requiring what would become a life-altering surgery. During her prolonged recovery process, Allison became her own health advocate. Combining her study of movement with her knowledge of human anatomy, she began seeking out alternative ways to heal her body. With a newfound passion for health and wellness, Allison soon became an ACE certified personal trainer and a New York Board-certified Health Coach. In addition to her work as a personal trainer, she is also a Total Health Immersion instructor, coaching Whole Foods employees and other retreat-goers on maintaining a healthful lifestyle. She has been featured in Fitness Magazine, Natural Body Building & Fitness, Self, and on NBC News. Allison and Frederick Thompson took ownership of Tribeca Health & Fitness in 2017 with the joint mission of creating a down-to-earth, accessible, and customer-focused community in the heart of Tribeca. Their unique, 360° approach to wellness, or “Lifestyle Optimization,” is informed by more than thirty years of combined personal training and health coaching experience, as well as their own unique backgrounds in anatomy and kinesthesiology (Allison) and clinical chemistry (Frederick)." Since the writing of this article, we've closed our gym due to Corona Virus. You can learn more about my current project at FitnessForChange. **Black and White photos by Luba Grossman

My favorite quote

My favorite quote changes regularly. Check out my social for the most recent quote on my mind.

My training philosophy

I believe that we should all discover what type of exercise our body loves and then we will stick with it. My job is to help you discover that. I also believe that all bodies, all mobility issues, all cranky joints just need a little care and attention and a workout program can be developed to work with and around these issues.

My training experience

I love working with people post rehab but I also work with athletes and veteran fitness peeps. It's fun for me to figure out programming for all body types. Please see my bio for full experience details.
