The professional relationships and connections that I have made over the last 10 years.

My Client's Success Energizes Me

My motivation comes from having the opportunity to help influence people, organizations and companies to provide innovative tools and provide education to help people live a healthy lifestyle in a country where over 70% of the general population is considered overweight or obese.

Doing Work that Makes a Difference

After 15 years of working in corporate America in sales and project management that resulted in living in an office, traveling all over the country, commuting four hours a day, and working 60-80 hours a week - I was burned out. With the little free time I had I would train and compete in triathlons. These races would help me stay committed and put a purpose to living a healthy lifestyle. My love for riding a bike had resurfaced from when I was a kid and I started teaching an indoor cycling class three times a week. These classes gave me an inside look in to the fitness industry and inspired me to make fitness my full-time job 10 years ago.

What Alex Loves Most

I am blessed to have the ability to inspire and educate someone to help and/or change their life in some capacity so that they then can take something that I was a part of and pass it on to a friend or family member to do the same.

Alex's Advice to You

Have enough confidence to get out of your comfort zone, be open to both positive and negative feedback, be able to adapt and change, don’t make it about you and ALWAYS be learning. And If there is one take-away that I would like to leave for anyone considering making fitness a career or is currently doing this, to always stay humble, work with integrity, be respectful and show gratitude with everything you do. This industry has a lot to offer on so many different levels and you never know what opportunities might come your way. They could be career and life changing.
