Client Success Story
I let myself go and wanted to loose some weight and gain some muscle so I started working out with Alex. It was the best decision I could have made! I was really intimidated by the thought of not knowing how to work out, not knowing what to eat, and the prospect that I would not be very good at any of it. Alex was very patient with me in listening to why I wanted to start working out and the issues with self confidence I had about looking like a fool in the gym. After our initial workout to see if we would be a good fit, he came up with a plan on how to tackle my fears and laid it all out on how I can loose weight, integrate the correct nutrition into my diet, slowly get my body into gaining muscle from progressive body weight training, and to give me my self confidence back. He comes up with a plan before I arrive and shares it with me weekly so I can mentally prepare, he tracks my weight weekly to keep me on track, and he provides honest and compassionate feedback about my progress. He truly does care about my progress, and when we are training, I feel he is 100% dedicated to me during our time together. He is super easy to get ahold of and is very responsive when I have questions or issues. I have hit my target weight in 2 1/2 months and I have never felt better. I do plan on still working out with Alex as now that I have got the nutrition as a routine, I have lost my body fat, I am now ready to bulk up with some muscle for definition. I really like that we tackled small goals at first, it was much less intimidating then trying to do everything all at once, I think I would have failed if I did not have Alex's guidance and continuing education. He taught me so much that I can not think him enough for giving me a new perspective on life, it really was a total transformation, and it all started with the first call to Alex. Thank You!!

First off, let me just say that Alex is one of the most genuinely nice guys I've ever met and that his passion for health and fitness is legitimately contagious. I worked out with Alex for a few months and he taught me to view fitness from an entirely different perspective. When we started, we had a conversation about my current training habits and my fitness goals. I have always been skeptical of calisthenics training and most often utilize a combination of free weights and machines when I work out, but I haven't noticeably progressed in several years. Alex built me a routine week-by-week based on my performance in our prior sessions. He studied my form to check for weak points and built me custom workouts designed to help me systematically improve. He helped me fundamentally re-build my fitness routine from the ground up using only my body weight and the results in terms of my strength and endurance became noticeable after only a few weeks. He really made me focus on core strength, endurance, progressive overload and exercise variety. His approach is methodical, challenging and has allowed me to continuously improve over the last few months. He always has time to answer my questions and elaborate on any given exercise or technique that we are using. He is impressively decorated in certifications and is a legitimate professional in his field. Every workout is different, and every workout leaves me feeling exhausted, sore and encouraged that I can continue to do better. If you are looking for a trainer who has the knowledge and experience to help push you to the next level, do yourself a favor and give Alex a call.
Alex has been a great trainer for me! He went above and beyond to help me achieve my fitness goals. During training sessions he was attentive, knowledgeable, and encouraging. He held me accountable and always corrected my form. He also noticed that I had mobility issues due to some prior injuries and gave me mobility and injury specific exercises to help me with my workouts. Lastly, he was more than willing to answer my questions and give tips when it came to my nutrition. He was just an all around great trainer. I think what surprised me most was that we achieved all these fitness goals doing solely body weight/calisthenics training. I’ve learned so much from Alex. I would highly recommend him to anybody looking for a personal trainer!
I train online with Alex and I can confirm that he’s very experienced. Although we’ve never met in person, the workouts and programs he has me doing are well tailored to my needs and ability. He’s always available to talk and has a wealth of knowledge on body weight training. He’s also an incredibly nice guy! Don’t hesitate if you want a new trainer; Alex is your guy :)
I found Alex on fitness trainer; explained my goal to get back on skis after a long recovery from knee surgery. I was unable to ski the last 2 years, because of strength in surgery knee. I worked with Alex once a week and did 2 workouts on my own for for months. Thanks to Alex and his programming i have 12 days on snow already—thanks to Alex! Was not sure i would get back.
Alex is extremely knowledgable, always on time, and truly cares about his clients. I started training with him back in October and have seen noticeable improvements since. I continue to be challenged with my workouts and have really enjoyed the bodyweight only training method. Being able to push your body through progressive calisthenics is definitely more rewarding. Overall, I highly recommend Alex and look forward to continue working with him!
I came to Alex 3 months ago with several goals in mind that I have been wanting to accomplish. From the first meeting, to the next, Alex has always been prepared, on time, flexible to my schedule and understanding. As for the training, I am incredibly excited with my accomplishments and the progress I’ve made so far in such a short amount of time. He progresses you appropriately, pushes and encourages you and is constantly attentive to your form to ensure you’re doing it correctly. I was only here for a short time and I’m incredibly bummed to not be able to train in person- definitely would recommend training with him!
Alex definitely knows his stuff, went there to work strictly on core to help my existing back issues and haven't felt this good in a while! Would definitely recommend!
I met with several other trainers before finding Alex and I am SO HAPPY I found him! I have been training with Alex for 3 months now and the results have been noting short of life changing. I am stronger, leaner and most importantly—pain free. I have been going to physical therapy for years as a result of surgeries and movement dysfunction and Alex’s style of bodyweight training completely eliminate all of my pain. This is the best I have felt in my body in years—thanks Alex!
I trained with Alex for about one year. My goal was to lose 20 pounds and Alex helped me beat that; he even motivated me to run my first 5k! He is kind and was very accommodating to my busy schedule. What really put my results over the top was his focus on diet. His focus on healthy eating took me to another level of success, and it required little effort. Nothing I accomplished would have been possible without Alex's training and guidance. You'd be lucky to work with him!
When picking a trainer, you want someone who will give you that tough love, right? Like you are paying someone to help you get progress, and that only happens if you change something about your life. But also, it can be super intimidating to work out with a trainer. Maybe he has a perfect body, and you don't see yourself being able to achieve what he has. Or maybe you worry that he will judge you because your schedule, diet, and form aren't perfect. So about Alex... First of all, he is probably the nicest person I have ever met. Like really nice. My mom is a really nice person, and I think Alex is even nicer than her. Working with Alex was the FIRST TIME I felt like I was actually getting a crap ton of value from sessions with a personal trainer. So he is super nice, but also he wants me to see progress in working with him. He provides that tough love I am paying him for. From our initial meeting to our last session, I never once felt judged. I always felt like Alex had a genuine passion to help me transform. When I told him I followed a strict paleo diet, he kindly suggested I try eating a plant-based diet, but he didn't judge me. And ya know what? I now eat a crap ton of plants, and I have never felt better. When I told him that sometimes I binged on the weekends, and I thought that might be ruining my progress, he kindly suggested I stop and stay focused on my goal. Sometimes we think we need someone to coddle us, but sometimes we just need someone to be matter of fact and help us put the kabash on the drama we add to our life. In case this isn't clear in my review, I am a female, and yes, I responded well when he told me to stop with the binge eating on weekends. I don't binge on junk food anymore. I wanted to achieve the goal I was working on with Alex! And I realized that I could keep paying him and sabotaging myself, or I could keep paying him and listen and DO the things he was telling me. When I told him that another trainer told me my legs were the size they were and would never change, Alex and I talked about different body types but also that through hard work, we actually can change our bodies. My stubborn legs stayed the same size for a long time, but I am down from a size 12 pants into my dream size 6 pants. Alex is extremely knowledgeable about exercise, form, and doing good for us things for our bodies. He is organized and takes time creating his programs. I've worked out with trainers before who just make things up on the fly! Not Alex. Everything is planned out and follows a systematic approach, but he also adjusts based on what I am capable of doing. He modifies things so that I can do the move and then continue to progress to better form and harder moves. He takes the time to follow-up with clients. He made me feel strong and empowered. I've never felt that way from a trainer before. I've always just gone to a trainer just to lose weight, but I actually felt empowered to change my life from my sessions with Alex. When I was first working out with Alex, I was leaving my teaching job and basically unemployed. I didn't have a ton of extra money to spend, but I still feel like the money I have spent to work out with Alex was the best money I ever spent to change my life. I am in the best shape I have ever been. I have a system of eating that makes me FEEL amazing and doesn't feel like a diet. I seriously love plants so much, and he helped me stop being afraid of carbs! Like what? I can eat carbs and not be a bad person? Sign me up. I am in the smallest pant size I have ever been which feels flipping phenomenal. And I feel strong and empowered. And he helped me do all this with kind but tough love.
