Alex went to South Lake High School where he played multiple sports. Alex graduated in 2015 and joined the Marine Corps in 2016 where he served as a machine gunner in the infantry, stationed out of Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. During his first deployment, he found the love for lifting and the science behind it. All of his free time was consumed by training or studying how to enhance his training. Alex has helped multiple Marines and hometown friends along the way with their personal goals and limitations they encountered with their training. Once honorably discharged, Alex began to attend Wayne State University for a major in Kinesiology with a focus in Exercise Science while also coaching at CrossFit Freshwater in Saint Clair Shores. Alex loves helping all people reach their goals and watching them become more confident each and every day.
