Personal Trainers


Alex was born and raised in Pontiac, IL and graduated from Pontiac Township High School in 2013.  He was involved in basketball and track and field during his High School career.  It was during Alex’s senior year of High School when he started to become serious about weightlifting.  This was the start of his fitness journey!  As Alex started to see the results in himself he wanted to reach out and help others reach their goals as well.  At this point, Alex started training family and friends for fun because he was so passionate about seeing others succeed.  He wanted to take it to the next level so he attended Heartland Community College and received his personal training certificate through the ISSA.  Alex worked for LA Fitness and was also a personal trainer at Golds Gym in Bloomington Normal, IL.  After making his way back to his hometown in Pontiac, he wanted to use his experience and education to train others.  Alex received his CF-L1 certification & was employed with CrossFit SwampFox/MAD Fitness where he coached CrossFit classes and trained clients and athletes. After having a successul career in coaching and personal training Alex has resigned from Crossfit Swampfox/MAD Fitness and is now happily employed with Get.Yourself.Motivated! He is extremely excited to continue chasing his dreams of helping people reach their fitness goals!
