Owner/Operator: Tom Allen
Tom Allen began his career with The Fitness Edge as a substitute spin instructor and volunteer. He offered his services as a business consultant and throughout the next two years developed into the Business Manager and interim General Manager. He decided to purchase The Fitness Edge business and commercial building in May of 2011. Today, he is the Owner and Operator of both The Fitness Edge Inc., and The Fitness Square LLC.
Tom is also a graduate of Interlakes High School. His success in Track and Field earned him an athletic scholarship to Northeastern University. With a dual major, Tom graduated college in 1991 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Logistics and General Management. He later returned in 2007 for his Masters in Sports Leadership. During his undergraduate years, Tom set numerous athletic records and still holds the University’s best mark for javelin. His biggest accomplishment is being the only athlete to win 4 consecutive New England Conference Championships in the history of New England Track and Field. He was also recruited by the United States Bobsled and Skeleton Federation to try out for the U.S National and Olympic Bobsled teams during his senior year.
His Olympic career sent him around the world and to 3 Olympic Games. First, as an athlete to Albertville, France in 1992, then, as a Coach and Team Manager to Salt Lake City, Utah in 2002, and finally, to Torino, Italy in 2006 as the Olympic Team Leader. During the off season, Tom was on the road recruiting the next generation of Olympians; 2 of them have since won Olympic Bronze in the 2010 games in Vancouver, Canada and Olympic Silver in the 2014 games in Sochi, Russia. Tom says, “The highlights of my Olympic experience, were watching our women’s team win Gold at the 2002 Olympic Games in Salt Lake and Silver at the 2006 Games in Torino.”
Tom has also been the Program Director at the Utah Olympic Park for the U.S. Bobsled and Skeleton Federation, a Track and Field Coach at The University of Florida and an Operational Manager for a home heating and oil company. He is delighted to be home in Meredith, enjoying the many challenges of owning a small business, giving back to the community and spending time with family and friends.
