Alison Hannah-Katschkowsky

Alison is a native North Carolinean—born in Durham, and raised in Shelby, she has lived all over the
state. Alison attended Meredith College and finished her BA at UNC Charlotte, and her MA at East
Carolina University. The oldest of 4 children, Alison grew up in a medical family and is a veteran
swimmer. Her interest in sports and athletics led her to a competitive swimming and bodybuilding
career through school and is largely responsible for directing her to the health and fitness field. During
graduate school, Alison became a group fitness instructor and fitness expert and throughout her 30+
year career has enjoyed working with others both privately and in group settings to help coach and
inspire them to achieve a higher level of health, fitness and longevity through a number of
practices—including self care.

Alison is the owner of her own fitness studio (CU Fitness), and holds numerous certifications both in
training and within the group fitness industry, dabbles in athleisure clothing and style (check out her
line—La Senorita Jolie—all American made—check out the link on this site!), enjoys writing for several
health and fitness publications and is currently writing a book. She feels a calling to help serve her
clients through customized fitness and self care programs and does a lot of online coaching and
destination fitness retreat experiences. She is the founder of the ‘Ultimate Functional Fitness Club’—an
on line fitness forum providing short challenging workouts, self care and support for the time challenged
busy person.

Tune in for her podcast ‘The Ultimate Journey of Self Care’ across most platforms.
Alison loves what she does and it is evident in every aspect of her work. She believes in
setting goals and the baby steps daily it takes to meet them, and helps to promote this
philosophy in all her work.  She continues to train herself, and relishes a good
challenge! Alison has two nieces and two nephews whom she adores and visits
whenever she can.  Alison also enjoys reading, writing, traveling, cooking, home
improvement projects, outdoor activities (particularly water sports), sporting events with
her husband John,  and also teaches in the health and fitness program at Meredith
College in Raleigh.  She and her husband, John, live in Raleigh with their two ‘fur
kids’—Sam and Carly.
