Healthy Man of the Month – December 2014
Jeremy Allen is a multi-certified personal trainer, and a recognized expert in the fitness industry. And he’s our Healthy Man of the Month for December 2014.
Allen has a reputation for being a fierce competitor in both football and track and field at the University of Iowa, his alma mater. During his tenure, he was All-Big Ten and All-American in both sports. He also held the University of Iowa School records in the shot put, 35 lb weight throw, vertical jump, squat, and 40 yard dash for a fullback. In 1998, he represented the United States in the World Junior Championships in France after being the U.S. Junior Champion in the discus. And if that was not enough.
He played in the NFL for two and a half seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, Atlanta Falcons, and the Rhein Fire (NFL Europe).
Today, Allen leads boot camps, speed camps, teaches adult and child fitness courses, and personal trains throughout the greater Dallas/Fort Worth area.
After establishing himself as one of the most successful and sought after personal trainers in the Dallas area, Jeremy was afforded a very unique opportunity. He was introduced to NBC’s The Biggest Loser contestant, Abby Rike, who he helped reach her weight loss goal of 100 pounds.
Abby said, “Jeremy’s approach to personal training is unparalleled. He listens to the needs of his clients and designs workouts that push people past their limits while creating a safe environment to succeed. I have been afforded the opportunity to work with the best trainers in the business, and I would choose Jeremy over any other trainer. “
Since the show, Jeremy has continued to grow his practice, creating The J Plan.
The J Plan is an affordable, online fitness system that is geared toward helping users reach their desired fitness goals. The idea is that users are given enough structure and support to be empowered; and ultimately to take control of their own fitness and health. Over time, Jeremy feels this will give people the tools they need to lead long, healthy lifestyles.
