ALEX JONES

OWNER / HEAD COACH

CrossFit Level 1 certified (CF-L1)

ATG Certified Coach

Bachelor of Science - Biology

 

Alex Is an extremely passionate health and fitness enthusiast.

 

Growing up playing nearly every sport available to him, he began to put most of his focus into baseball, until an elbow injury ended his career.

 

Graduating the University of Toledo with his Bachelor in Biology to pursue a career in Pharmacy, he’d never lost the competitive drive that team sports had instilled in him, and knew he’d make his way back into the sport/fitness space in some capacity.

 

After being introduced to functional fitness in 2019, he was immediately hooked. Realizing the missing link in his life, he jumped head first into the methodology and received his CrossFit L1 Certification. Now he is a local and team CrossFit competitor, most notably Team Division at Wodapalooza in 2020.

 

Even more, than competing, Alex love’s to teach, coach, and connect with people and the ‘why' - honing in on their deeper motivations at the gym, and encouraging people to become the best version of themselves possible. If you are an athlete that enjoys mindset and psychology, Coach Alex's classes are for you.
