York/Allison Foreman
My experience with Allison Foreman at York went swimmingly. Her responses were fast, for one. Too bad I can't say the same for some of the other vendors I contacted. I mean, here I am already training with the York equipment from Allison, while others have never returned my calls, emails and worst-QUOTES!

As for the equipment, it's great stuff. The GHD is a tank and a hundred times better than any other I've tried.

Thanks for the help and your overall support of this community.

Re: York/Allison Foreman
I'd buy from York in a heartbeat, and may be soon.

Re: York/Allison Foreman
I also placed an order with Allison a little over a month ago and I agree with the OP.. not only did she respond to my inquiry fast but provided me with a lot of great information taking all of the guess work out of my purchase. I couldn't have asked for more from a company.

Re: York/Allison Foreman
Has anyone had any contact with Allison lately? I PM'd her and her box is full. I sent an e-mail last week but no response. I understand there is the Health & Fitness Business Expo in Denver, Colorado, so she is perhaps swamped with that. If that is the case I can wait. Thanks for any input...

Re: York/Allison Foreman
Id check the email address that you may have used. I emailed allison a few days ago and recieved a response, quote and some great input from her the following day. So she is definatly around

Re: York/Allison Foreman
Okay, I'll try again. I used the one on her signature here on the forum. Is there another one?

Re: York/Allison Foreman
I got an e-mail message from her on Friday asking for additional information on shipping but haven't heard back from her. I imagine she's busy. Based on all the good things I've heard about doing business with her, I'm sure she'll get back to all of us when she's free to do so.

Gary Ohm 07-13-2008 04:31 PM

Re: York/Allison Foreman
Out of curiosity Theresa and Michael, what e-mail did you use to contact her? I used allisonforeman@aol. Is this what you used? If not, what did you use? Thanks again.

Theresa Meyer 07-13-2008 04:34 PM

Re: York/Allison Foreman
I used the same one--of course, it had the dot com on the end!;)

Gary Ohm 07-13-2008 05:16 PM

Re: York/Allison Foreman
Well then I'll keep waiting. Thank for the responses Theresa. And, yes I also used the .com:)

Re: York/Allison Foreman
I'd call her direct at (614) 785-9266.

Arturo Garcia 07-15-2008 12:26 PM

Re: York/Allison Foreman
If one contacts her directly, is it possible to get a better price than the one listed at the NewYorkBarbells website? Because I see the GHD over there is $450 with free shipping. I want to get one of those, the one with the NOT-rotating pads obviously, as it's the one I've seen in CF videos.

Also (darn, kinda off topic now?), the one in the NYBB webpage shows two sepparate pads... in the CF videos I usually see one piece of pad, and now two, which is best or more advisable?

Re: York/Allison Foreman
I just received my order from York and its awesome. Full set of Bumper Training Plates, a regular plate tree and a full bumper rack. Allison was great to work with and even offered some of her own suggestions for me to consider. She was very responsive and the quality is just about as good as it gets. I know it took her a day to get my freight quote so that may be the reason for the delay in addition to just being busy. She's tops in my book.

Re: York/Allison Foreman
I'll try calling her direct. I still have not heard back from her. Maybe since I only want a GHD it is not worth the trouble to figure special pricing...

Re: York/Allison Foreman
FYI, newyorkbarbells is a different company than york.

Re: York/Allison Foreman
Hi, guys! Thanks for the kind words, I really appreciate them! Theresa and Gary, I expect that you've received my responses by now (had to await freight rates from the shipping department). Will clear the inbox, but can always reach me at, or my office number at (614) 785-9266, cell (614) 284-6455 or fax at (614) 785-9322. Sorry I've been playing "road warrior" lately!

Allison Foreman, York Barbell

Re: York/Allison Foreman
Glad you are back Allison. I'll check my e-mail now.

Re: York/Allison Foreman
Hi, guys. Looks like its time to throw my contact info back out there. Sometimes forget that some folks may not have it, and not just trying to self promote or anything, but really appreciate all the kind comments.

Of course, I offer the CF community gets at least a 30% discount on everything in the York Barbell product line, and can send electronic catalogs and quotes that will include discounts and lowest available freight (I'll need zip codes for freight calculations, and whether its a commercial or residential delivery).

I do await freight quotes from our shipping department, as I always find out the lowest available rate for each request (particularly helpful when multiple items are being considered). Lots of times you can add on toys without changing the freight rate at all, so I try to get that information as well - those freebie add-ons are determined by load size, weight, and distance, and my shipping goddess is awesome with that! Would rather spend $$$ on toys rather than shipping, so I try to let folks know how many additional lbs they can toss on a load for "free"! Freight can really be a determining factor, and I don't use a "blanket" rate as it may not be the client's lowest, and do not consider shipping to be a profit center. So I do apologize if it takes a wee bit longer.

Okie dokie, here's how to find me: Allison Foreman, for York Barbell, (614) 785-9266 office, (614) 284-6455 cell, (614) 785-9322 fax,

Thanks, and appreciate the opportunity to be of assistance. Anyone can give me a shout with any requests, or just to talk shop!!
