Allison is a fitness, running and obstacle course race coach in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. She is also a full-time life coach (AKA mom) to two young children, Ama and Seren.
Outside of her passion for training others and keeping herself fit, Allison stays busy as a professional obstacle course racer on the Tough Mudder Pro Team and specializes in Ultra Distance OCR events. She’s won numerous races from Sprints to UltraBeasts, came in second twice at World’s Toughest Mudder, won the Spartan Canada Point Series in 2015 and won the CBS televised Toughest Mudder series in 2017. She also won the OCRWC Enduro 24 in 2018. You can find more of her results on Athlinks.
It hasn’t always been this way. Allison was struck by a truck at highway speed while riding her bicycle in 2006 and broke her back, pelvis and arm. She is now considered to have a 24.5% permanent partial disability.
While recovering from the accident, Allison acquired her first group fitness training certificate through canfitpro. Over the years she has coached everything from general fitness to running to STOTT Pilates to Functional Movement Screens… eventually becoming a PRO TRAINER with canfitpro. She is now one of the few Level 2 Certified Spartan SGX coaches and a Spartan Obstacle Specialist. However, she loves that her background ranges from rehab to running to sport performance since it gives her a huge toolkit to work with.
Allison has been featured on Breakfast Television, the Edmonton Journal, the Edmonton Sun, 1040 Sports Radio, CBC News, The Early Edition, Global News, CBS, and OMNI Television BC. Tai has also guest blogged for the Edmonton Sun’s Health and Fitness blog and the Moose is Loose.
