Mallory received her Bachelor’s degree as an Exercise Specialist from Hofstra University and was decorated with the highest honors of Summa Cum Laude. She has participated in various research studies focusing on abdominal, core work, aerobic and anaerobic health and endurance.
She obtained her Certified Personal Trainer through the American College of Sports Medicine and is CPR/AED certified. Her superior education combined with her years of clinical experience in physical therapy makes Mallory an exercise specialist in training people with pre-existing injuries and those wishing to improve cardiovascular health. Mallory also has a strong training focus on athletes who play basketball, softball, lacrosse, tennis, and track.
Throughout 2010 I have been training with Mallory at TSPT Fitness. Working with Mal has been a perfect addition to my fitness activities. Her knowledge and experience in exercise physiology and proper body mechanics enables her to provide me a safe, comprehensive and varied workout.
Under Mallory’s guidance, I have become stronger, more toned and lost weight. Having an upbeat, easy to be with, well educated trainer has finally made working out a pleasurable and productive experience. I even got my 70+ year old mom to work out with Mallory!
Realizing that exercising on my own was going nowhere, I decided to look into working with a personal trainer. Jamie introduced me to her associate, Mallory Crisona. After one trial session with Mallory, I was sold!
Her extensive knowledge of personal training helped her craft a half hour session of training that was enjoyable and challenging, yet left me with an increased energy level the day after.
I purchased the 20 session package and now I’m at the end of that package. I have increased strength, increased energy level, and built up endurance. The aches and pains I had in my back and legs have vanished as well.
Mallory’s level of care shows in her sessions. She always asks how my home training is going and offers her input. Mallory pushes me to do better while keeping me safe from straining myself.
She has built a training relationship with me that has changed the way I look at exercise. I look forward to continuing my sessions with her.
