Why did you go into Personal Training?
Underlying health conditions exist within my family. I not only wanted to ensure I wouldn’t be susceptible to those conditions but become their outlet to a better, healthier life. This goal grew into a passion propelling me to become a Personal Trainer. I want to introduce people to a greater version of themselves. To be the reminder that they are truly capable of accomplishing their goals.
Alexandra’s Success Stories
Alex is fantastic! From our initial meeting, she listened to my goals and customized a plan to meet my needs. Her expertise and training have allowed me to come out of my comfort zone. I have always only focused on cardio and never really strength-trained. Alex has shown me that lifting weights makes me stronger, and the results were better than I imagined. Each session with her was a challenge, but it was a great accomplishment once it was done. She always pushed me through each workout and never let me quit. She was exactly what I needed to achieve my goals. She kept me accountable for my sessions and this made sure I showed up to WORK! I look forward to every session with Alex because it was MY time to show up. These sessions allowed me to learn the proper form for various exercises that I was doing wrong. Alex excels at what she does, and I am grateful to have her as my trainer!
Alex is a great trainer and is committed to helping her clients reach their fitness and health goals! From our first meeting, she made sure to understand my goals, what my baseline was, find out my capabilities and limits, and adjust all my workouts accordingly. I immediately felt and saw positive changes in myself, and definitely know I’m getting stronger. In just three months, and with a knee injury a month into my training sessions, Alex kept me positive during our sessions and maximized all the workouts so I never felt like injury set me back. Training with Alex has helped me get back into fitness and enjoy it. At my three-month check, the body scan showed even more progress than I had expected! Alex is a great trainer knowledgeable in her profession, cares for her clients, and helps them reach their fitness goals!
Alex has reframed exercising and working out for me in a way I would never have been able to do alone. It is fun, challenging, and exciting, and I feel safe and confident in what we do and are working towards together. I never thought I could lift, mainly because I was scared by it. But now, it makes me happy, and I feel strong. By doing things that once intimidated me, I have become more self-assured in all facets of my life that all goals can be achieved. I know I would not be where I am today without Alex; I feel like I may have even quit the gym if I had not had her encouragement, support, and positivity. Our time together is always the highlight of my day.
Having Alexandra as a trainer has been valuable in reaching my fitness goals. She is very knowledgeable and resourceful, able to make adjustments at any workout to improve. Since training with Alex, I can now perform new movements with vastly improved form. I am correcting muscular imbalances and seeing noticeable differences in strength, flexibility, and mobility. I also learned a lot about recovery, breathing, and nutrition. Thank you to Alex for helping me achieve my fitness goals. Every session is always a fun experience.
I am looking forward to training with Alex for the foreseeable future!
