Developing a passion for sports at an early age Alex played baseball, soccer, and basketball throughout his childhood and high school years while growing up in Albuquerque, NM. In college Alex began playing lacrosse and has always enjoyed mountain biking, rock climbing, and being outdoors. During his studies at the University of New Mexico Alex further developed his interest for exercise and fitness and earned his Bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science while working as a personal trainer, CrossFit, and group fitness instructor. Shortly after earning his Bachelor’s degree Alex returned to the University of New Mexico to earn his Doctorate in Physical Therapy and discovered his passion for helping others return to doing what they love most and pursuing an active lifestyle.
