All About Alison

Name: Alison Wheeler

Age: 31

Occupation: Regulatory Specialist, Clinical Research

Family: Married, two cats (Dylan and Pagoda)

Favorite exercise & fitness activities

Yoga, pole fitness, kettlebell, and running

Favorite foods & cuisines

I LOVE food! Growing up with a cook for a mom made me a foodie from an early age. I love authentic Italian food. Homemade pasta is light and delicious.

I don’t eat much meat, so I always gravitate towards vegetarian options on the menu. If a sandwich or omelet has spinach, avocado or mushrooms, I’ll order it!

My favorite sweet treat is a simple sugar cookie with frosting. I’ll choose this over any other dessert. 🙂

Favorite outfits to bring out your Sexy

I’m the type of person who puts on yoga pants right when I walk in the door. So I love any opportunity to get dressed up and go out! I love wearing black so that a little bit of color in a scarf or accessory pops. I also love tops that seem normal from the front but show some skin in the back!

go out into the world and do well but more importantly go out into the world and do goodWhat are you passionate about?

I’m passionate about making the world a brighter place. A simple smile or act of kindness can go a long way. If I can make someone’s day a little better, even if just for a few minutes, I’ve made a difference.

I’ve worked in research for almost 10 years and love knowing that in some small (or big) way, we’re changing the world.

I live by this quote: “Go out in the world and do well. But more importantly, go out into the world and do good.”

What do you do to relax?

Yoga, yoga, yoga 🙂

What does the “Strong is Our Sexy” philosophy mean to you?

I’ve struggled with weight most of my life and didn’t find my passion for health and wellness until after I graduated from college. I always associated ‘skinny’ with ‘sexy’. This philosophy reinforces that sexy isn’t confined to one box.

I love the high I get after a workout and that carries into the rest of my life. I never knew I could feel this way and couldn’t be more grateful to be a part of a community that constantly reminds me “Healthy is Happy’ and ‘Strong is Sexy’.
