Jeremy Allen

Jeremy Allen is a NSCA Strength and Conditioning Specialist, AFTA certified personal trainer, and SPARQ certified trainer with an extensive background in athletics.   He has taken the values and principles that he utilized during his athletic career and has successfully applied them to training.  As an athlete and graduate of the University of Iowa, he was a fierce competitor in both football and track and field.  During his tenure, he was All-Big Ten and All-American in both sports.  He also held the University of Iowa School records in the shot put, 35 lb weight throw, vertical jump, squat, and 40 yard dash for a fullback.  In 1998, he represented the United States in the World Junior Championships in France after being the U.S. Junior Champion in the discus.  After his college career, Allen then went on to play in the NFL for two and a half seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons, and the Rhein Fire (NFL Europe).
 

As a fitness professional, Jeremy believes that training with a "teamwork" mindset will yield the best results.  "Personal training is about working together to reach goals."  He also believes that fitness is more than just a one hour a day, but a lifestyle.  "It’s something that you need to think about from the moment you wake up in the morning until the time you go back to sleep at night… it's your body, your mind, and your health…"   Allen is so enthused about his occupation day after day because the window for growth is wide open.  This is true not just for him, but for his clients as well.  "People can always improve and everyone needs to be challenged.  That's what keeps us all going."
