Welcome to the Reps with Alison Fitness & Wellness Studio!
Get Fit and Feel Great. We'll Show You How.
If you are looking for a premier fitness facility in Embrun, then you've arrived at the right place. Reps with Alison Inc. is pleased to introduce you to the Reps with Alison Fitness Studio, located at 1012 Notre Dame Street in Embrun, Ontario.
Reps with Alison Inc. is owned and operated by Embrun entrepreneur, group fitness instructor, personal trainer and wellness coach Alison Lystiuk. Over the years, Alison has helped hundreds of clients achieve their fitness goals, whether it is to lose body fat, get fit, or transform their bodies and minds through her various group cardio classes, group weight training and personal one-on-one training. Some people spend their entire lives looking for something they are passionate about, something that they can whole-heartedly put 100% of their energy into. Alison was lucky enough to find her passion while she was fulfilling a life long fitness dream.
Her goal was to compete in a fitness show before she turned 40 years old. At the time, she was a 36-year-old mother who was a smoker and a terrible eater. She had cellulite and the classic lady ‘wings.’ She went to work but always felt like she had the energy level of a sloth. She thought getting fit was ONLY for those women in magazines, not for someone who craved poutine!

However, deciding she needed to change, she allowed her determination and perseverance to take over and decided to make the biggest, most dramatic change in her life. Nothing was going to get in her way as she took control of her life!
While on her fitness journey to the stage, Alison became a personal trainer so she could help others live a healthy, happier life and assist them in reaching their own fitness goals. Alison believes that in order to be successful in life, you must never stop growing and progressing. From this belief, what is today Reps with Alison Inc. was born.

Reps with Alison Inc. now runs a successful Embrun-based fitness facility – Reps with Alison Fitness Studio. In addition to being a Personal Trainer, Alison is a Weight Loss and Nutrition Coach, and a Group Fitness Instructor, specializing in Group Weightlifting Classes, Boot Camps, and Moms and Babes Fitness Classes. She is also a Certified Pound Pro for the world-renowned POUND® ROCKOUT. WORKOUT - the first trainer to bring this unique and popular fitness cardio program to the Ottawa area. She also successfully relaunched the KANGOO Power Jumps classes in the Ottawa-area.

Alison and the team of independent fitness instructors at the Reps with Alison Fitness Studio have used their knowledge and experience to help hundreds of clients lose body fat, get fit and transform their minds and bodies including offering a wide range of classes.
Now in her late 40's, besides being a successful business woman, Alison finds herself a fit, happy, mentally and physically strong woman and mother. She can honestly say that she has never felt better and has never been more confident! It's that personal progression that drives her to continue helping so many people from Embrun to Russell to Ottawa and surrounding areas with their own fitness and personal well-being goals. If you've ever met Alison, you would know how true this is!
The Reps With Alison Inc. Approach
The Reps with Alison Fitness Studio presents fitness in a more healthy, practical, and obtainable way for the average person. Many of the studio's clients are women and Alison wants to represent fitness for the woman next door...people like her daughter's teacher...the new mother...the woman who has lost hope in ever looking in the mirror again and being happy with what she sees.
Alison knows we all love posting the BEST photos of ourselves on social media. You know, the photos where we look great, fit and smiling. Alison is no different, she posts constantly on the Reps with Alison Fitness Studio Facebook page. You can find it here: www.facebook.com/repswithalison. (Like it and follow along with all the action!)
But Alison knows she doesn't always sport a six-pack - the reality is fitness instructors don't look like that all the time. Those types of photos are usually taken with a fair bit of preparation first – even the ones that look spontaneous, which is why we included the photo below, taken on vacation in December 2016.
Alison on vacation, not in competition form but lovin' it anyway.
Like most people on vacation, she ate whatever she wanted, whenever she wanted. But she also worked out. She was at peace with herself. And that is what fitness should be. You need to find that peace within yourself. Find the balance. Following those Instagram fitness models and thinking that is attainable is unrealistic and unhealthy. Women need to stop putting so much pressure on themselves to be perfect! Alison's goal as a fitness and nutrition coach is to help you reach whatever your goals are - lose body fat, build strength, get more energy - but in a realistic, empowering way in a friendly, welcoming, non-intimidating atmosphere. Step in the doors of the Reps with Alison Fitness Studio and you'll see this first-hand yourself.
