Alex firmly believes in the power of getting a good workout but not taking yourself too seriously while you do it.
All his life, Alex has been surrounded by people and family that have pushed themselves when it came to health and fitness, so understandably, he did the same. In 2017, Alex went to his first boxing class, and there, he met a trainer who nurtured a passion for fitness. In the following months, with the help of his coach, Alex achieved a state of fitness, confidence, and mental well-being that he had never been in before—and he realized he wanted to do the same for others as his coach had done for him. His passion for teaching fitness was born, and he knew that was the career he wanted.
Alex spent years on stage touring the world playing drums, so he has a special place in his heart for great beats and a sweaty time in front of good people. Because of this, coaching a group of people at the same time and helping them reach their goals is not only his passion, but also so fun for him, and he maintains that working out should feel just as fun for those in class. Show up to train and have fun, leave feeling like a badass!
“Leave your judgment at the door—we were all new once, and we all have different goals. What matters is not how others see you; what matters is how you feel when you walk out of that room, so let’s make that feeling a damn good one and have fun getting there. You deserve it.”
“That’s what I’m talkin’ about.”
