About Adjust Your Performance

Adjust Your Performance was born out of Dr. Allison’s passion for keeping up with a life in motion. Respecting the requirements of our body on a day-to-day basis is necessary in order to maintain optimal health; and those requirements often involve a specialist to evaluate, diagnose, and treat physical shortcomings that hold us back from moving and feeling our best. Originally, Adjust Your Performance was located in a small barbell club in Hoboken, NJ. This opened up the opportunity to educate, treat, and learn from many competitive and recreational athletes from many different disciplines. The desire grew to expand into other communities- those that enjoy being weekend warriors, the hard-working desk jockeys that need to move more, or anyone who has a desire to get better and respects their body enough to put in the effort that it gives us day-in and day-out. At Adjust Your Performance, located in GameChanger Fitness Springfield, NJ we want our patients to strengthen and gain control over their own bodies to successfully age and bounce back from acute or chronic pain. A healthy community is a happy community. This is our “why”- what’s yours?
