I played sports my whole life and my whole family is very healthy and active. Once my high school sports ended I started working at a gym and ended up getting obsessed with lifting and the gym environment.

Fitness Influencer | Clark, New Jersey
Meet Allie compton
"Hey guys! I'm Allie! I'm from Clark, NJ. I started lifting during my senior year of high school. I got super interested in lifting during my senior year of high school, but social media and society made me think that I needed to be a size XS so I became scared of lifting like many girls do. Because of this, I developed severe body dysmorphia and an eating disorder but I thought that it was okay since I was finally a size XS. About 6 months later, I was able to overcome my eating disorder and really focus on my health. I've been training for about a year and a half without any health issues and I've never felt better. I started my instagram account in August of 2021 to help women and share my story. When I was going through a really hard time - both mentally and physically - I really wished I had someone to talk to that I related to. I started my Instagram to be THAT person, the person that is relatable and that people can come to with their issues, especially issues that I may have already experienced and gone through. I love being a fitness influencer and I'm super excited to continue to help and inspire people to be their best selves."
Q&A with ALLIE COMPTON
WHAT GOT YOU INTO THE FITNESS LIFESTYLE
Who are your Heroes and why
My hero is my mom. My mom is the hardest worker I have ever met. She alone supports me and my twin sister and continues to kill it in her work. She went back to school for her masters degree and after she got it she continued to take classes and earn a ton of credits. She showed me from a young age that being a strong, independent woman is awesome and I have always wanted to be just like her. She is kind, caring, humble, selfless, hardworking, dedicated, passionate, and the most amazing mom. She will forever be my hero.
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE QUOTE YOU LIVE BY
“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain't all sunshine and rainbows. It's a very mean and nasty place and I don't care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain't about how hard ya hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!”
― Sylvester Stallone, Rocky Balboa
WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE EXERCISE OF ALL TIME
conventional deadlifts are the love of my life
WHAT DOES "REIGN FROM WITHIN" MEAN TO YOU
To me, "reign from within" means to not just better yourself on the outside, but on the inside as well. It means going through all the hard, tough times and coming out even stronger.
WHAT'S YOUR BIGGEST MOTIVATION (WHAT KEEPS YOU GOING)
My biggest motivation is my former self. I look back at old photos and remember how unhealthy and depressed I was and it motivates me today. I just know that my old self would be extremely proud and happy of how far I've come and it pushed me harder everyday. I am very grateful for how far I've come.
HOW HAS STREIGNTH CHANGED YOUR LIFE
Streingth is such an amazing movement and brand that I am super blessed to be a part of. Being a part of a team of like-minded individuals that push each other to work harder everyday is something I am very grateful for.
