In her Instagram post, Allen revealed that she decided to go on a retreat to help her take a break from her busy life. She writes, "It's very difficult for me to totally switch off and not think about all the things I could be doing instead but I'm trying. I love being busy, I love working, I love training, I am always striving for more, thinking about the next thing and I don't ever think I've done enough or deserve to fully switch off."


She Does Bodyweight Exercises

Allen is a personal trainer, and she shares a lot of workout videos on Instagram. One thing she likes to do is bodyweight exercises. Allen shared this video of herself doing lower body exercises in her hotel. In it, she does back lunge squats, lunge squats, forward bends, and squat pulses. She captioned the post, "No weights? No problem! There's loads you can do to strengthen and sculpt your body using just your body weight, working with rep volume, tempo, pauses, pulses and time under tension. Save this for the next time you wanna work but have no equipment or limited space!"


She Makes Overnight Oats

Allen makes sure to eat healthy. She shares some of her favorite recipes and foods on Instagram. One thing Allen likes to make is overnight oats. She shared this video of herself making them on her retreat, captioning it, "THE BEST OVERNIGHT OATS RECIPE EVERRRR.. & it takes 60 secs to prepare for one or a bit longer if your prepping for 25 people or meal prepping! 😋✨Every single gal on my retreat LOVED my quick and easy recipe."


She Goes To Fitness Classes

Allen opened up about her diet and fitness in an interview with Women Fitness. She says that she likes to go to fitness classes. "I love the underlying competitiveness of classes at certain studios so I try and get to class around 3 times a week. I also find classes fun and accessible. I try and vary with which style I do but it's usually HIIT: dance cardio, total body, kettle bell classes or barre."


She Stays Motivated

Allen shared her secrets for staying motivated to workout in her Women Fitness interview. She shared three things that keep her motivated. "Setting myself goals. Whether it be a job I have to be prepared for or a physical goal I want to reach within my training, I know it's not going to happen without the work going into it. Keeping track of progress is important. Looking forward to the rewards! When you've worked hard on reaching your goals and you finally reap the rewards that's something in itself to remember. Pride and success. Endorphins. The same as everyone, there have been many a time when I can't find the energy to go to the gym but knowing that I will feel a hell of a lot better about myself after class or a session, most of the time, gives me the kick up the bum to get there."
