Alex is the founder of CrossFit Roughnecks and has been involved in fitness and sports for most of his life.  He first began training in gymnastics as a child, then moved into Cross Country, Track, and Pole Vault in High School.  After High School, he began weight training and martial arts which opened his eyes to a whole new way of living. After several years of working out, he began personal training with friends, family, and co-workers that included nutritional plans and workout routines to optimize fitness.  Alex has also been training and teaching Martial Arts and Self-Defense for over 12 years.

Eventually stumbling upon CrossFit in 2010, he realized that this was what he had been trying to recreate for himself and clients all these years.  Alex holds a Level 1 Certification, as well as CrossFit Football, CrossFit Mobility,  and  CrossFit Olympic Lifting certification.  He is also a 4th Degree Black Belt in Won Hop Loong Chuan and a 5th Degree in Pyong Hwa Do.  His love for fitness and passion for training will help you to reach new heights in your fitness and to accomplish any goal you set.
