Ali Winslow received her undergraduate degree in human biology and her master’s degree in medical and nutritional anthropology from The University of Pennsylvania in 1996. She then went on to Harvard University to pursue a degree in Health Sciences, completing advanced courses in organic chemistry, physics and biochemistry. She has traveled several career paths; ranging from pharmaceutical research at MIT, to medical sales in Boston, to medically supervised weight loss clinics in her early professional days. She then pursued a medical degree track through Boston University, but her love and passion for physical fitness and nutrition won out. Ali has continued to focus on strength and conditioning and that is where she is today: full time head coach at Orange Theory Fitness, part time yoga teacher at Krigsman Yoga, part time strength/conditioning coach for middle to HS ages, Head Coach for Laxachusetts Girls lacrosse, and Assistant Coach for Notre Dame Academy in Hingham Girls Lacrosse.
