This podcast gets me pumped! Daniel has some REALLY good questions for me as it relates to being an Olympic athlete and the takeaways! I don't get asked or have the opportunity to share the intricacies of Olympic success often. Not many interviewers get into the true why and how and do it in the way Daniel was able to, which is educational, entertaining, and fun. It was a bonus to appear in person at Daniel's state-of-the-art studio in LA. He is easy to talk to and really made me laugh on this episode! So, I am excited to finally share this light-heartedly and personal, podcast with you. Hope you enjoy it. xoxo - AB
Allison Baver shares her experiences and secrets to success through her blog.
Tears of joy! Self-empowerment is the core value of Allison Baver New York and that is why it means the world to me to share this blog with you. In February 2018, I jointed Council for a Strong America and Champions for America's Future to educate lawmakers on the importance of funding early childhood education and developing socio emotional skills learned in sport. Let's give all children the equal opportunity to be their very best!
Way to throw it back! Watch to find out No Things Considered Host, Tim Young's, comparison in politics to my first fitness photo shoot. It's classic...pure comedy! Thanks Tim and The Washington Examiner for all you do. It was a busy time of travel for me and I’m so glad we made this work! You can listen to Tim's show daily and find our interview a few min into this clip. Next time I appear on Tim's show, I'm going to have to play reporter and get some dirt on him. It's officially GAME ON!
Cute studio! Cindy has interviewed me at events in LA and the Sundance Film Festival where we have met and stayed in touch. This time was special because I got to visit her on her turf and in her own super cute and cozy studio. I could not risk missing the show with the LA traffic by car and decided to take a train from LA. It was my first experience on a west coast train and logically slept in my red carpet hair and make-up from the premier I attended the night before and got hydrated. Fitness Trainer Lisa Ann and Host Cindy looked SO--- good in the Flawless Collection, I made sure they took it home with them. We all had a blast. This interview is the first time I share my designs and inspiration on camera, so it means a lot to me to share this video with you. xoxo- AB

U.S. short track skater Allison Baver announces retirement
December 18, 2017 at 12:58 PMBy: Julia Grassie
Baver was a member of the U.S. Olympic short track team at the 2002, 2006 and 2010 Olympics.
U.S. short track skater Allison Baver said in a press release Monday that she's retiring to focus on a career in fashion design.
37-year-old Baver made her first Olympic team in 2002, when she served as the alternate for the U.S. women's team in the relay event at the Salt Lake City Olympics. She also competed at the 2006 Torino and 2010 Vancouver Winter Games.
In Vancouver, Baver earned an Olympic medal when she finished third with the U.S. women's team in the 3000m relay. The medal-winning performance came just a year after she broke her right leg and ankle in a crash at a World Cup competition.
Baver's other accomplishments on the ice include winning a national title in 2007 and holding the American record in the 1500m since 2008.
While competing, Baver earned an MBA from the New York Institute of Technology. The Pennsylvania native also worked as a model, and was the first Olympic athlete represented by Wilhelmina Modeling agency's sports division.
In 2016, she was elected as Vice President to the United States Olympians and Paralympians Association.
Her interest in fashion started early thanks to her mother, who was a bridal seamstress.
Upon announcing her retirement, Baver said, "I am grateful for such a rewarding Olympic skating career. The ups and downs in the pursuit for Olympic glory have taught me how to be a champion and many values including focus, confidence, hard work, and ambition. These are the qualities that I am applying to my career in fashion design."
She said that she first wanted to enter the fashion market when she had trouble finding clothing that could both withstand an Olympic athlete's workout and make her feel beautiful and confident.
Baver added that her goal with her fashion line, Allison Baver New York, was to inspire "the inner strength and beauty of athletes everywhere."
