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, Amelita 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.

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.
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.
Allison’s latest passion is living simply and self-sufficiently. Though she has almost no experience growing her own food or farming, she’s excited to take on a lifestyle that connects her and her family with nature and the food they eat.
