I'm Alex.  A former marketer and Facebook surfer, I changed careers when I experienced how strength can transform your life. I'm now a Strength Coach under the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA), StrongFirst (SFG1), Functional Movement Systems (FMS), and a certified Precision Nutrition Coach (Pn1). I've also written for StrongFirst.

The goal for this blog is simple: provide you with the tools to feel better and get stronger. After all, training in the gym is training for life.
