8In addition to swimming and kick-boxing, which her TV-sister Christie Clark also enjoys, Alison loves gymnastics and can do a mean back-handspring. She also loves to garden.
9Her son Ben doubles as a physical training-partner...sort of. Every morning, she first does push-ups with the baby lying under her...letting her long mane dangle over him. Then Ali does sit-ups with Ben lying on her chest for resistance. After that, she lifts and lowers him overhead to work her triceps. Ali credits Ben with being a terrific motivation.
10Was an evening undergraduate at UCLA, where she took business classes after work.
11She and her husband David welcomed their first child, a son, Benjamin Edward Sanov on February 25, 2005 at 10:30am. The baby weighed in at seven pounds.

15Growing up, the Sweeney siblings - Ryan, Alison and Sten - had a system for keeping each other "in line": The elder sibling(s) would tell the younger one that s/he (the younger sibling) had been left at the Sweeney home by gangsters; and that if the younger "sib" didn't behave, the elder "sib(s)" would take him/her back to prison. (And it worked, too.)
