Ali got the bug for teaching group fitness classes at a very young age. She kept busy doing her mom's FIRM workout tapes in the basement and taking her grandma through workout classes at her retirement home (lots of bicep curls involved). In college Ali finally got her AFAA certification and started teaching classes at MVP Sports Clubs. Little did she know that teaching classes would evolve into her career as she has now been teaching, personal training, developing program content and leading in the fitness industry for over 13 years, with numerous certifications under her belt.
"My favorite part of teaching is being the ultimate cheerleader, encouraging people and making something that isn't always fun be a little more exciting". Ali teaches in all four of the modalities at 4G Athletic, is a National Trainer and Video Presenter for MOSSA and was listed as one of the top 23 Rising Stars with IHRSA (International Health, Racquet, Sports Clubs Association) in 2017. Ali believes that fitness is more than aesthetics, it's about helping people feel good and move. The more active people are the better quality of life they will have!
