  • Ally spent 7 years working with a physical therapist and acupuncturist to hone her therapeutic exercise skills. After moving to California's central coast, she became a full-time personal trainer and exercise instructor. Always trying to stay at the cutting edge of research, Ally is currently studying to the CSCS exam.
  • In 2019, Ally became a stage 3 cancer survivor. Unfortunately, the months of chemo, radiation, and surgery have made her an expert in terms of cancer experiences. This phase in Ally's life taught her to slow down and allowed her to hone in on her writing skills.
  • Ally jokes that she has been writing a book for a decade — but it's true! A natural-born writer, she loves feeling deeply and constructing sentences to convey stories and emotions. Ally strives to grow as a fitness writer every day.


Ally is an adventurer, artist, athlete, and cancer survivor. She is an Exercise Specialist, who travels the country in her refurbished motorhome looking for peaks to bag. Ally earned her Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology and is a 200-hour registered yoga teacher. She currently writes running and fitness gear reviews for Outdoor Gear Lab, which is based out of her hometown (South Lake Tahoe, CA). In her free time, Ally can be found snuggling with her wolf-dog, geeking out over exercise physiology, or practicing headstands on her paddleboard.

Shortly after graduating from CSUF, Ally completed her 200-hr Yoga Teaching Certificate at the Yandara Yoga Institute in Baja California, Mexico.
