Right from an early age, as soon as Allan learned to walk, he started to run. At university in his home country of Trinidad and Tobago, Allan ran competitively, getting himself within milliseconds of Olympic qualifications. After moving to Japan in 2005, he coached track & field at high schools in Nagasaki for 5 years. Then in 2012 he moved to Tokyo and started one of the city’s only outdoor functional training gyms, now called Intensity Matters, as a level 2 CrossFit coach. At the same time, Allan never stopped competing in short distance track and sprint triathlons. He plans on running 100 meters in 10 seconds at the upcoming Japan Masters Class Track and Field meet. His unique background combining speed and functional movement gives him unparalleled insight into how to make others faster. Allan puts emphasis on technique, discipline, and intensity for all functional movements. His ongoing quest to improve himself overflows into a desire to lift up all those that he works with. Welcome to the team, Allan!
