About Alec

After graduating from the University of Kentucky with a degree in dietetics, NASM Certified Trainer Alec Penix sought to accomplish his goal of becoming a celebrity trainer in Los Angeles, California. In 2010, he met fitness expert Eric The Trainer who showed him the ins-and-outs of training Hollywood’s top celebrities. Penix’ first book Seven Sundays (Howard Books, a division of Simon & Schuster) is a devotional that takes you on a journey of both spiritual and physical fulfillment.

The Michigan native has over a decade of experience in the fitness arena and has worked with Olympic Gold Medalist Gabby Douglas, Singer / Songwriter Natasha Beddingfield, Actor / Singer Aaron Tveit, dancers Derek and Julianne Hough to name just a few. He has worked on international concert tours, musical productions, and television and film sets to prepare his clients to look, feel, and perform their best. His star-studded roster includes actors, models, musicians, professional athletes, Olympians, dancers, CEOs, film and television executives. As a celebrity trainer, he overcomes a variety of challenges to achieve complex fitness goals and ensure his clients are ready to go on stage or on camera…

Because of his vast knowledge of physical training, Alec is in high demand by all those who wish to undergo a physical transformation. Alec serves clients with every body type, wildly differing lifestyles, and of all ages. He’s trained hometown heroes at the Sheriff’s Department and taken on entire companies as corporate clients. Alec advocates an active lifestyle and competes in charity football games (such as the Celebrity Sweat Flag Football Challenge, which benefits the troops). His numerous television appearances include Good Morning America, Fox & Friends, The Doctors, Inside Edition, Home & Family, and Access Hollywood. Alec has also appeared in many publications including GQ, People, Wingman Magazine, Miami Living and Muscle & Fitness. He is an accomplished speaker who has appeared on many popular podcasts and leading conventions.

In all his endeavors Alec seeks to help people not only look their best, but also feel their best by adopting a healthy lifestyle. Alec believes that spiritual development is a critical element of the physical transformation process because spirituality, as defined by each individual’s personal beliefs, aids in overcoming internal roadblocks. He approaches training by focusing on the interior first and addressing individual client needs to aid them in transforming their bodies and achieving healthier lives.
