When you’re healthy and fit, people can see it. Not just in your body, but in your overall vibe and energy from the inside-out. Positive lifestyle habits are totally contagious! Try adding more into your life and watch them catch fire. Before you know it, you’re smiling from ear to ear, working out effortlessly, and maybe even inspiring others to do the same. We can’t think of a person who exemplifies this kind of naturally snowballing happiness better than Allison Holton.
She loves to be active, but doesn’t take herself too seriously. She does lots of different activities regularly rather than trying to stick to one regimen on repeat, and she’s not afraid to try something new. For Allison, maintaining healthy habits is fun. She doesn’t stress about it because to her it’s not a chore; she just does what feels good. And we dare you to say it doesn’t look good on her.

Do you belong to a gym? Have a personal trainer?
My daily workout routine usually consists of two hours of ballet classes at night. The class starts with intense stretching, and then we spend a majority of the time learning choreography. On the weekends I get together with a group of friends (that happen to be nutritionists/personal trainers) and hike or hit up Equinox.
Are there any workouts you’re dying to try?
I’ve always wanted to get into mixed martial arts. I tried a jiujitsu class and it was really tough, but I’d like to give it another go.
You don’t believe in fad diets. Why not?
I believe eating healthy and staying positive is the best way find what people look for in diets. I don’t worry about what my body looks like. My primary concern is staying healthy and challenging myself with a good workout.
What about dietary restrictions on certain types of foods? (carbs, gluten, meat, dairy, etc.) Why or why not?
My diet is well balanced.. I don’t like to deprive my body of anything. My meals are usually small portions of different food groups.
