Allison Weiss is not your typical teenager. At the age of 17, she holds the title as The Fittest Teen On Earth. Allison is from Greensboro, North Carolina and has been doing Crossfit for 2 ½ years. She started Crossfit after retiring from competitive gymnastics after 10 years.
She trains at College Hill Crossfit and says that “my experience with being a 2x Crossfit games competitor can’t compare to anything else!” Crossfit has humbled her into the athlete that she is today and the community and atmosphere is what she thrives off of! “It was an unforgettable experience, and I learned so much about what my body is capable of,” she said.
Allison's biggest accomplishment so far is of course earning the title as the Fittest Teen On Earth at the Reebok Crossfit Games in the 16-17 age division. The CrossFit Games rank the world's fittest, and determine who is the fittest on earth. Although she has achieved her most recent goal of becoming the Fittest Teen, her next goal is to qualify for the 2017 Mid-Atlantic Regionals as an individual athlete.
Her favorite NuGo Bar is NuGo Dark Chocolate Coconut but she also loves the NuGo Organic and NuGo Free lines. Allison explained, “NuGo bars are an easy way to fuel my body with healthy carbs, low fat, and the right amount of protein mid training.” She loves being able to meet her needs with a delicious NuGo bar!
Outside of Crossfit, Allison enjoys spending time with her family and outside activities like kayaking, hiking, and swimming. Follow Allison on her Crossfit journey to the Mid-Atlantic Regionals on Instagram and Twitter.
