Meet The Trainer: Grambling State Kinesiology Student Brooklynn Allison Creates 8 Week Fitness Plan ‘Bodied By Brook’
Summer might be over, but that doesn’t mean your summer body has to go! Grambling State University student, Brooklynn Allison, knows just what it takes to keep your body in shape ALL year round.
The senior recently created an 8 week fitness plan for students and the local Grambling community, that she plans to utilize her experience in health promotion to soon expand nationally.
As a new trainer, Allison, was proud to see how many people were eager to not let excuses stop them from living a healthy life and begin working with her on their new successful fitness journeys. After announcing the launch of ‘Bodied By Brook’, the limited spots were filling swiftly.
“Let’s get it, time to have fun while getting super fine,” she said.
Many believe that our bodies tend to store more fat during the Fall and Winter months. Why is this you ask? Is it because it’s just too cold to spend time outdoors or maybe in Allison’s case, it’s time to head back to school, so it’s back to eating that “oh so good” and “oh so healthy” cafeteria food right? Nah!
With the ‘Bodied By Brook’ plan, Allison assists in creating an overall healthier lifestyle for her clients. The boot camp includes a nutritional plan and helps with toning up, losing body fat, gaining muscle and learning healthy eating habits (dietary plan), and yes, even in a college campus cafeteria!
The former track and cross country athlete believes in keeping it fun, yet intense. A few of the many warm-ups and exercises her clients are currently working on are skier hops leading into sprints, wheelbarrow push-ups, and squats.
“The mission of the boot camp is to create new sustainable healthy mindsets for my clients that enhance their lifestyles, physically, spiritually and mentally,” said the Las Vegas native.
She personally spent the summer constantly working out and learning and doing everything fitness. After spending three months working on her health, she thought about creating her own business and decided that now was the time to bring all of you on board with her as she began her own fitness boot camp.
So, she didn’t waste anytime and got started on the creation right away. The boot camp began last earlier this month on September 4 and will end on October 26 and many of her clients are already excited about checking out their end results.
That beach body won’t come over night though, in addition to college students bickering about how unhealthy the food choices are in the cafeteria, they’ll probably hit you with the “I have so much work, I have absolutely no time to exercise” excuse.
“I can relate, but I also took summer courses, worked two jobs, did my daily worships and still managed to workout consistently, so it can be done,” Allison said.
With her help, YOU CAN do it too! If you are not in the Grambling/Ruston area, no worries, you can workout and get daily health and exercising tips from the trainer via her social media (find her accounts below).
“Health is not a trend it’s a way of life, so stop making excuses for why you haven’t started and let’s just DO IT” she said.
“Staying Patient And Being Consistent Is Key!”
