The Problem: When I was working out on my own my workouts lacked Intensity and typically consisted of the same lack of exercises. I was not satisfied with how I felt about myself - I felt soft and had no energy.
The Solution: Alex Introduced me to proper exercise mechanics and movements that helped me get visible results while staying injury-free, despite me having pre-existing spondylolisthesis and a meniscus tear in my right knee.
The Results: Overall, I look better, feel better, and have crazy amounts of energy that were not there when I started. I'm more motivated now to keep pushing to new levels than when I started.
The Problem: I lost 20lbs on my own after retiring, however, I was unable to put on any muscle and repeatedly injured myself while trying to do so. I was frustrated with always being sore and hurt - and still not gaining muscle!
The Solution: Alex introduced a new style of training that gave a greater stimulus to my muscles to grow.
The Results: My wife and children tell me I look great! Since working with Alex I have Improved my overall conditioning, lost more fat, strengthened my shoulders, arms, chest and legs, felt better and slept better, and become so much stronger (including a 300lb Deadlift).
The Problem: I’d never used a personal trainer before, but faced with the big milestone of turning 60, I decided to give it a try. My goal was a long, healthy life in my golden years, and get ready for a few pool parties in the summer. But I had a stagnant approach to working out – hit the gym, same routine, same weight, same results.
The Solution: For me, working with Alex has been a great experience with real results. Alex clearly explains the right form to maximize benefits and avoid injury. And, he measures results, in one exercise I increased the weight I was lifting by 60%.
The Results: Now I feel stronger, have more energy, and enjoy keeping up with my workouts. I’m confident that I’m on the right path for my health and well-being. Plus, my girlfriend complemented me on my progress, and we’ve had fun at the pool parties.
The Problem: My golf game was not where I wanted it to be. I was not able to hit the shots I wanted and when I went to compete against friends, colleagues, and business associates I would be out of breath on the back 9. My weight had crept up to a place where I was uncomfortable with it, I needed to lose 30-40lbs.
The Solution: Alex was careful in explaining each step of his process to ensure I had full understanding before proceeding. The diet and nutrition advice was simple yet effective. The exercise routine created a foundation of strength and movement before moving toward more golf-specific exercises.
The Results: I have lost over 25lbs in 4 months while becoming stronger and more flexible. The increase in strength has forced me to adjust my clubbing during golf as I was hitting everything too far. My wife and I are now looking forward to our cruise later this month
The Problem: In the last 5 years I had started change shape - and not in the right way. I wanted to get back in shape, at least enough that I would reduce the random aches and pains that creep up as we get older, and I wanted a plan that would keep me healthy through my next 40 years. I was concerned that a trainer would just give me the standard workout cycle, similar to what I had always done. The workouts I did when I was younger didn't really address my current needs & issues. I was having a hard time figuring out a good set of workouts after I entered my 40s.
The Solution: Alex tailors my workouts to my needs, working on things like posture, back, and hip issues that have crept up from working in front of a computer for 20+ years. He has also helped craft a workout plan that I can continue to use for many more years. Alex also helped with the workout plan but also helps answer questions about nutrition and other factors outside the gym, like sleep, that are important to long-term strength and health.
The Results: I have trimmed 4 inches off my waist and over an inch from my hips. I'm a numbers geek and have kept measurements dating way back and this is as small as my waist has been since high school. I've lost 13 pounds in 6 months while building lean muscle and I'm beating personal records for lifts like squats and chest press. My wife also trains with Alex and we compare notes and he really does tailor the workouts to each of our needs and goals. I'd recommend Alex to anybody looking to get back in the swing of things, or get started working out for the first time.
