Certified CrossFit Coach
Alex has been a trainer at HeadStrong CrossFit for 2 years. He played football as an offensive lineman at a division 1 junior college in California where he helped his team achieve an undefeated season and a national championship. His football career was cut short his Sophomore year after a severe injury required surgery to repair damage done to both of his knees. After leaving his football career behind and spending several years working in the construction industry, he decided it was time to get back to his athletic roots. After making the move from California to Texas, he began looking for a gym to call home where he could restart his athletic career. He came across HeadStrong CrossFit by chance one day and decided to give it a try. After spending some time with the head coach Ryan Matthews he knew he had found the perfect place to begin again. Since joining HeadStrong, he has had tremendous strength gains. The knowledge that Ryan has to offer pertaining to strength and conditioning is above and beyond any gym he has been to before. After several months of training one-on-one with Ryan, he was asked to become a coach at HeadStrong.
Currently he is a competitive Powerlifter with several 1st place finishes. Aside from being the best coach and powerlifter he can be, he is currently focused on finishing what he started with his football career. He is anticipating his return to NCAA in 2018-2019.
