I have worked with Alex for over one year. I have had many trainers over the years and can say that Alex has been my best experience for several reasons. 1) he is always on time, motivated and well prepared with a well thought out strategy for each session. 2) He has deep breadth of knowledge in many areas of fitness, physiology, nutrition, and thoughtfully applies his knowledge to improve my life 3) The sessions are a lot of fun and he is able to change it up so it does not get monotonous with a nice balance of cardio, weight training, TRX, boxing , yoga and stretching 4) He has an acute skill to know my limits so I am not in pain after our sessions but energized and wanting more 5) most importantly I am 45 years old and for the first time in my life am beginning to reach my fitness goals. Thanks Alex.
Working with Alex is wonderful. Unlike other trainers I've worked with, the workouts seem tailored towards long-term health but with my goals in mind. He also does a great job of gauging my energy level and pushing me to the right degree. I'm positive he uses different techniques for his other clients which is part of what makes him so special - his ability to recognize and adapt to you as a person, not just once but each time.
Alex is one of the best. I have worked with a few over the last 10 years, and he is really good. Apart from getting you really strong and fit, his focus is also on your flexibility and the harmony of your mind and spirit. A really great person- you would do well to try him out.
