Let me just say that Tracy is one of the best trainers I have ever had! She puts 100% into each and every one of her clients. I started training with her 5 weeks out from a show and I couldn’t have been more happy with the program she put together for me. She consistently checked in to see how I was feeling not only physically but mentally as well:-)
She also referred the best of the best when it came to looking for specific things such as bathing suits, massage therapists etc. She truly cares about her clients and who wouldn’t want that when dieting/training for (normally) 12 weeks?? I constantly would text her throughout the day asking her certain questions and she would always respond within a short amount of time. I couldn’t have chosen anyone better to work with. Tracy, you rock girl! Thank you for all your support!
I made the big choice to turn to Tracy when it came to getting advice on being fit. I reached out after witnessing her work with a friend seeking to compete. Her results were legit; I would have never believed it could be done without seeing it for myself.
As a man 30 years of age who actually considered himself more-or-less in shape, I starting feeling like maybe I could use a new challenge in my life. It was at that moment I decided to accept the Tracy Allen fitness challenge, and it absolutely changed my life. Taking advice from the typical gym ‘trainer’ at the gym has never settled well with me, but Tracy is different, she actually lives the lifestyle she preaches. She has the unique ability to answer questions with real life experiences. This was the most valuable piece to this decision, and ultimately proved to be my deciding factor.
Generally my fitness life has been a culmination of competitive sports, surfing, and of course many hours spent in the gym throwing around weights with no real goal in sight, other than to continue the same old… same old. Tracy put together a 12 week program which required most days to be AM cardio and PM lifting and finish with a little more cardio, but still allowed me to surf before work.
I had to get my metabolism jammin’, to accomplish this I was eating clean protein packed meals every 2-3 hours, which took some getting used to but is now common-place in my days. It’s all about the prep! After I reached the finish line I found myself 40lbs lighter than when I started. Needless-to-say I am swimming in all of my clothes.
Completing this 12 week program has provided me with a new found confidence in making the right choices in my nutrition as well as what actually is worth spending time on in the gym. This is just the beginning of my new lifestyle…
There are two reasons I was able to be successful in this whole deal; Tracy lives what she preaches, and she always makes herself available so her clients making herself accessible when it matters most.
Is it even necessary for me say more or that without reservation I recommend her skills to anyone looking for attainable results? No pills… all natural food… 40 lbs lighter and still seeing strength gains every week. Challenge yourself. Tracy Allen is legit…
I have always been healthy and fit…or so I thought. When I met Tracy, I had done both P90X and P90X2 so I felt like I was in great shape but I was ready to take it to the next level. And take it to the next level we did!
I had always seen Tracy at my office and thought, “I wanna be like her!” I finally approached her and several conversations later, she got me started on my prep for the NPC Bikini show!
I cannot even begin to tell you how amazing this adventure has been. There is no one else I would have rather been there as my coach, than Tracy. After 16 weeks under Tracy’s care, I lost 17 inches and 14 pounds!!! But even more important than what I lost, is what I gained from this experience…
As a person, I have changed for the better forever. Eating clean, exercising, and taking supreme care of myself is now my way of life. I gave up beer (which I loved so much), dairy, sodas, and sweets from my diet for the prep. Now that my first prep is over and the show is done, I am still eating clean, exercising, and taking great care of myself.
Being healthy feels so amazing, and I am so grateful to Tracy for helping me get there. My mind is clearer, my skin, hair, and nails are healthy, and my digestive system runs like a dream! I no longer have digestive issues, headaches, back pain, or trouble sleeping.
I gained a greater self-confidence and a pride of walking the talk. I noticed that by my actions, I was motivating other people to be healthy as well!
What I also gained from this experience was a great friend. Tracy is not only my coach, she is also my friend and I am so grateful for that! Tracy told me that she was always a call away, and she proved it to be true. She was so supportive and encouraging. She sends me motivational quotes on Facebook every day, even still. She would check up on me on a regular basis and was always so positive, which made me feel at ease.
I highly recommend Tracy if you are looking to be a healthier, happier, better version of you!
When Tracy told me that her custom tailored workout and nutrition plan could provide me with the results I desired in half of the time it usually took, I was skeptical. Sure enough, the results did not come in half the time… THEY CAME EVEN SOONER! Strictly following her plan brought forth a transformation that I could have never imagined achieving on my own.
Tracy not only understands her client’s needs and the sometimes precise changes required to achieve a certain goal, but she is one of the few I have met that actually practice what they preach when it comes to living a healthy lifestyle. Her years of experience in the gym and competing on stage has given her a perspective that I’m sure most trainers and nutritionists don’t get with from just training clients in the gym and obtaining various trainer certifications.
Tracy is the real deal, and wether you’re looking to trim a few pounds and gain a bit more muscle, or completely change your lifestyle for the better, you could make no better choice than to go with her.
I am a 33 year old active female who has run both competitively and as a hobby since I was 11 years old. I have always enjoyed fitness and especially a good challenge but mostly in the form of completing something in the gym or obtaining a faster time in a road race. I had always considered myself to lead a “healthy lifestyle” and to be a “healthy” eater.
I have known Tracy Allen for about 5 years. We met at the gym and took the same group fitness classes together. When Tracy began competing in figure competitions, I watched her transform from an already very fit person into an incredible specimen of health, muscle and nutrition. When we would get together to work out or meet up for social occasions, she would always ask if I was curious about taking my body to the next level through diet and modifications to my workout.
Being a creature of habit and a busy professional woman always provided me with plenty of excuses as to why I was just going to keep doing what I was doing when all the while I desired to have different results. I finally decided that I would give her diet plan a try and in my mind said I’d allow it two weeks and if it wasn’t working for me, I’d return to my old ways. I never thought that what I was about to embark on was going to be a life changing mind and body transformation. Two weeks lead to four, and then eight, and now I can’t imagine going back to my previous “healthy” eating.
There is no doubt that success is dependent on preparation and dedication. Throughout 10 weeks I transformed my body to include losing over 16 pounds, improving digestive issues, eliminating bothersome heart PVC’s , improving my strength and muscle definition, and even shaving over 8 minutes off an already fairly fast half marathon time.
For me the real reward has come in the mental strength I have learned I have to take care of myself both physically and mentally. I have had the incredible opportunity to complete two fitness photo shoots and have another one on the calendar! I have learned how to take care of my body and fuel it to fuel ME verses beating it up in the gym and feeding it with whatever is easy or available.
It has not been an easy journey but it has been one that has been more than worth the effort, time and dedication it requires. I highly recommend the entire experience. Tracy was and continues to be more than supportive and helped me every step of the way, from how to grocery shop for clean foods and implement new workout routines to “talking me off the cliff” when the going got tough. I have a renewed sense of self and happiness and have truly never felt better in my life.
So, let me just start off by setting the record straight on my “before” photo. As unflattering as it appears, the reality of the before photo is that the majority of the pants and skirts in my closet were a Size 2. I carry all of my extra weight right in the midsection and being 5’1” tall, there’s really not a lot of torso going on. When you are a Size 2 and you bemoan your lack of abs or complain to your girlfriends you get no love!
No one wants to hear it when you are sporting the cute little outfits on a regular basis! I also want to be clear that my before body was very fit and served me well. That body had run three full marathons and countless half’s and 5K’s. That body sweated through tons of spin classes and 20 mile bike rides on the road. That body was absolutely nothing to be ashamed of!
However, I wanted something more. I wanted to take my fitness to the next level and truly clean up my diet.
When I saw the photos posted of Becky and when I went to Tracy Allen’s Facebook page I was so excited! I was immediately engaged and decided I needed to jump right in.
I met with Tracy and said I’d do whatever it would take. That was in early October. In retrospect I wish I had taken a moment to think ahead…it never occurred to me that Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Eve were all on the horizon. I dove right in. We bought a treadmill from a Craig’s list posting and it’s been sitting in a position of honor in the living room ever since!
The first few weeks were hard but not for a reason you may expect. It was hard to eat so much food!! The eating part of the plan called for 6- 7 meals a day…7!!! It was a necessity to get up and going by about 5:15 every morning to do my early cardio.
I have a sweet tooth. I really enjoy chocolate and baked goods like banana bread or muffins. That all had to go out the window. The first several weeks had a lot of protein shakes (protein powder and water) so I picked a chocolate flavored one and I can honestly say I had no cravings for junk food that first month. I was spending a LOT more time in the gym than I was used to. The workouts were straight forward. Tracy listed the body parts to work and I did whatever I wanted in terms of free weights or machines. The afternoon cardio was often hard to separate from the lifting but when I could I was heading back to the gym for a second session after work. It took a lot of effort to make it all happen.
I spent a TON of time in my kitchen! I would try and cook the oatmeal and turkey and the like in bigger batches and dole them out during the week. I never thought I would be “drinking” egg whites but I’ve come to love Muscle Eggs! The Chocolate Caramel flavor is awesome!
Since I’ve been eating clean, I have a lot more energy. I used to bloat during the day but now that doesn’t happen. I am a long distance runner and I have become much faster. I recover from long runs more quickly.
I hit a lot of bumps on my quest to change my body. I was in a car accident Thanksgiving weekend and I was sidelined from the gym for two full weeks and it probably took two more to get back to my normal workout schedule. I went home to RI for Christmas and boy did I struggle! For the most part I ate clean. My parents were super supportive of my egg white, steel cut oats and white fish needs. However I was surrounded by all of my favorite holiday cookies and I hadn’t been home for two full years!! By the midway point of my vacation I dove head first into those cookies with little to NO regrets!!! Once I got back to my own home and my own routine, I hunkered back down and course-corrected.
I think the take home message from my experience is that any one of you can do this. I have a very challenging full time job; a man and a 13 year old boy at home; school drops offs and sporting events; a lovely group of girlfriends that I try and spend time with and a shoe-shopping habit. I tried to keep all of those other needs met and make time to focus on myself. My boyfriend was incredibly supportive (and he’s eating clean now too!) and so were all of my girlfriends…regardless if they were my “gym” friends or my “regular life” friends. It was a ton of hard work and I made a lot of sacrifices but it has all been worth it. I’ve learned how to eat to fuel my body the right way. I’ve dropped about 13 pounds and I intend to maintain this leaner version of me. I can’t wait to see what comes next!
I have always been an athlete all my life, which has afforded me to stay in great shape…So when I decided to do my first NPC Bikini Competition I thought it would be a walk in the park…I had no idea what I was in for.
I was definitely that person who had the mind set that if you work hard in the gym and eat relatively healthy then the results would follow. It became clear that to make that extra difference with my body I would have to do that through my diet.
I remember making that call to Tracy Allen and it changed my life. From the moment we starting working together I had made a conscious effort to give it my all and put complete faith in her meal plans. Within the 3rd week out I could see the changes being made. I will admit that making all my meals and planning everything out was definitely challenging, but by pushing myself to eat clean for a month, it became a lot easier to keep it going.
What I loved about Tracy’s plan was that it was not only correlated to my workouts but it was super easy to follow and she was always on hand should I have a question.
Its Important to note that even when you have the tools necessary to make the changes…the challenge isn’t so much about the tools but having the dedication to use them and understanding that no one can make it happen for you…you have to want it for yourself.
I’m happy to say that I completed my 12-week nutrition plan and had the best results I have ever seen myself achieve. Not only did I do well in my competition but also my knowledge of nutrition has changed and I’m living a healthier and happy lifestyle because of it. I could not have gotten these results without the help and care of Tracy Allen and if she can change my body I know she can help you with yours.:)

Tracy Allen and her program changed my life. You see, I was NEVER athletic. I was in fact the chubby/fat kid growing up. I didn’t play sports and never worked out. About 8 years ago I topped the scale at 210 pounds. At that point I knew something had to be done. I tried every crash diet out there and none of them worked. Eventually I found weight watchers and this did work for loosing weight, but I wanted to do more than that, I wanted to become athletic and healthy.
I started running in order to get in shape. Soon I became addicted to dropping pounds and seeing the scale go down. Before I knew it, I was in the middle of a full blown eating disorder. I was struggling with Anorexia and Bulimia. I was also going through a divorce at that time and adjusting to life as a single mother. I would literally eat one meal a day and it was a small salad or steamed veggies. I would then run 10 miles a day or do some sort of high intensity workout like P90x or Insanity. Sure, I was thin, but I wasn’t healthy. My metabolism was completely dead. If I ate more than a meal a day, I would gain weight. Or I would feel so guilty about what I had eaten, that I would purge it. Food was the enemy and I was absolutely miserable. I knew something had to change.
When I saw the results that Becky had working with Tracy I decided to give it a try. I contacted Tracy through email and telephone (I live in Missouri and she is in California) and she told me all about the plan and what she could do for me. She explained that it would be more food than what I was used to and I HAD to eat it all. At first that was a HUGE adjustment for me, but we had to get my metabolism running again. I went from my tiny salad to 7 meals a day!! But the food was good and I didn’t feel bloated like I used to after eating.
The first month, I had no cravings at all! It was great, tons of white fish and veggies! Not to mention steel cut oats and Muscle Egg Egg Whites…they are my favorite!! Especially the chocolate ones! YUMMM! The plan gave me results immediately!! Not only did I tone up and loose some weight, but I also became comfortable in the gym. I started lifting weights and gaining muscle. My arms have more tone than I ever expected and I can see ABS!!! Something I’ve never had before!
I’m not perfect and I did have a couple of set backs…(I like wine too much). But I am now able to eat again and I feel better than I ever have. I have energy and can think clearly. When you have an eating disorder and you are starving, your body just doesn’t feel right. You are always tired and your mind is never clear. Thanks to Tracy’s help, I have been able to overcome it. I have more self confidence than I have ever had and I feel like an athlete for the fist time ever.
Since I started the plan, I have lost an inch and a half off my thighs, 2 and a half inches off my chest, 3 inches off my waist, and 5 inches off my hips and rear!!! I also completed my first official half marathon and a 50k trail run…that’s 31 miles!!! I NEVER thought I’d be able to complete something like that. Tracy has showed me the healthy way to live and a diet that is clean and enjoyable and for that I am so thankful.
Anyone can do this plan! I’m a single mother of a very active little boy and I work full time. If I can do it, so can you! Take the challenge…I dare you
