Alex has worked 4+ years as a fitness professional. First as Master Trainer and training manager with 24 Hour Fitness, and most recently started his own training company ROAR Athletics. In H.S. his lacrosse team won state titles, and was ranked nat’l top 25 his JR and SR year. He was also an all-conference cornerback. His proudest achievements are not personal, however, rather the wide array of clients who have changed their lives and mitigated pain under his guidance.


Alex has trained professionally his whole working career, which started after a college football career ended due to injury. First with 24 Hr, then began his own business, and is now thrilled to be a part of UCI’s nationally acclaimed program. He has worked with surgeons who refer police and firefighters that have just undergone surgery. He has also been successful in training professional athletes, new mothers, and clients who come in with pain, and leave feeling better than ever.


Alex lives an active lifestyle. When he isn’t helping clients improve their lives, he loves to ski and snowboard, golf, hike, swim, and read. He also holds personal relationships and spirituality as his highest values. Alex’s philosophy on training is that anybody can benefit, no matter how old, injured, or low the client’s confidence may be. After seeing success after success, he understands the value that he can provide. However, that doesn’t look the same for everybody. His programs are on a case by case basis, and custom tailored to the needs and values of each individual. He looks forward to working with you!
