When Alex was younger, she played softball, volleyball, and was involved in gymnastics and cheerleading. In college she began competing in Olympic weightlifting, which lead her to my passion for fitness and movement. 


Exercise is meant to be enjoyed. There are an endless amount of mental and physical benefits that come from exercising regularly. Pushing ourselves to be the best we can be through physical activity is one of the most rewarding feelings, and sometimes we just don't know where to start. I am here to help guide each individual to accomplishing goals that will help them to better their lives in any way.
