Allison Jackson Fitness originally started out as FitMomsofNJ.com in 2010 when she began to realize how many of her mom-friends were either struggling to lose weight, looking for ways to incorporate exercise into their busy lives or trying to figure out how to prioritize their health while caring for their family.

Fitness is absolutely her passion. When she was in her teens, she used to read her Dad’s Muscle & Fitness magazines and attempt to lift weights and work out in their unfinished basement with a weight bench and some dumbbells.

Her mom took Allison to Jazzercise classes with her. She struggled with her weight, but it was during those early years that she caught the fitness bug.

 

Re: starting your own business:

"Trust in yourself and rip off the band aid. You’ll be surprised just how successful you can be"

Some of my personal highlights from this conversation:

Allison felt like the business was real when locals started saying to her "I know you, you're Allison Jackson Fitness - I've been watching your videos"

She talks about how important it is to find the right business coach. "The right business coach is going to fast track you and get you through the rough points"

She says "No matter what your goal there is a coach who can help you – go find them"

 

Allison explains how she went from her early days where she gave sessions to family "for free" to charging what she is worth – she has 3 different ways she reached a dollar amount:

  • bartering was an early method
  • she looked at what her coaches were charging and what value are they giving me and started from there - and says "As I built out my clients and my schedule gets more full – up with my prices" AND
  • Evaluate your time, your hours. How much time are you spending coaching a person and the things you have to do – and put a dollar price on your hours.

Allison believes in 3 pillars - fun, authenticity and healthy

This conversation is all 3 of these and much more
