I'm Building A Fitness Empire!
From reality star to sportswear designer, Gabby Allen is on a mission to help you look and feel fab
Joanna Ebsworth

Gabby Allen is continuing her takeover of the fitness world. Since leaving the third series of Love Island in 2017, the Liverpudlian professional dancer, fitness instructor and personal trainer has released her first book, Shape Up with Gabby Allen (Ebury Press, £15.99), become a key trainer for mobile app FiiT; and is now launching her first activewear range in collaboration with sportswear, skincare and sweat-resistant make-up brand SportFX – the reason why we’re talking to her today. But ask Gabby if she is on a mission to become the UK’s next queen of fitness, and she goes all shy, before finally shouting, ‘Yes! I’m gonna build a fitness empire!’ with a hearty laugh. ‘But seriously’, she adds, ‘yes, I’ve done my book and am working with FiiT, and I’m now doing a clothing line, but it’s all been a very organic process. They’ve been milestones in my career, and I’m very proud of them. But there’s no rush to push things out. I’d rather take my time and choose my projects carefully to make sure they’re perfect. I want to be the best of the best!’

It’s Gabby’s experience of the fitness world that has made her stand out from the rest of the reality TV crowd, and she’s drawn on her knowledge of what women need from their gym kit to create her gorgeous new SportFX x Gabby Allen collection. But what is the inspiration behind her motivational slogan tees, functional seamless styles and cute cover-ups? Read on to find out more, and hear about the other exciting projects Gabby’s got planned in the future.
