    After completing my Novice Linear Progression in 2020 and transitioning to an intermediate template based program I was struggling to make progress and was suffering from minor injuries for several months. Alex and I have been working together for over a year now and I’m stronger, have a better understanding of programming and, best of all, injury free. His command of the Starting Strength model and attention to detail have been game changers for my training. I can’t recommend Alex highly enough!

    I am a 35 year old male with a physically demanding job and years of on-and-off lifting experience. Alex has been my strength coach for just over two years now. We have been working together remotely via his online training services. Within the first few months of working with him, I made significant gains in strength and lean body mass, and we continue to make steady progress each month. Working with Alex far exceeded all expectations of what I thought could be achieved by online coaching. Using videos of my training plus excellent communication, we have been able to adjust and workshop technique for all movements, especially squat, deadlift and press, and their variations. Alex’s approach to programming takes into account the demands of my life and job and allows for progress in the gym to be continually ticking forward. He is meticulous and seems to have a 6th sense for my response to his programming without being physically present. Overall, I wholeheartedly recommend Alex as a coach. Working with him is the best decision I have ever made for my health and fitness goals.

    Alex has been my coach since August 2021 and I couldn’t be more pleased. I navigated the novice linear phase well and when I was ready to move onto more intermediate programming I decided to go with coach Alex, whom had already been previously providing me with excellent feedback and advice on my technique for the big lifts. Alex has since help me add even more weight to the bar and improved my form even more. Alex is very knowledgeable, attentive, and focused on making the best decisions based on current performance. In addition Alex is mindful of factors outside the gym, as well as how the lifter is feeling, and uses that information to guide programming as well.

    Alex is a professional coach who helps me (and now my wife too) with the StartingStrenght program for 1 year now via online coaching. With his hawk eye Alex knows exactly how to push my limits and helps me to improve my technique. Also with overcoming minor injuries. Above all, Alex is a pleasant person to work with!

    I have been doing online coaching with Alex for 7 months now and can’t recommend him highly enough.

    When I started with Alex I had been playing around with the Starting Strength program on and off for a couple of years with moderate success. Under Alex’s guidance I’ve been able to really dial in my form and have seen much more significant progress then I had previously.

    Alex provides great feedback after each session and really takes the time to communicate different form adjustments in a way that’s easy to understand and implement in the gym.

    Additionally he is readily available beyond the basic form checks and is always happy to answer questions as needed.

    Alex is the coach to have if you are interested in online coaching! He is realible and honest.. he will truly understand you needs and will tailyoor the perfect program for u . In a nutshell, I changed from a guy that faild PE in high school and who did not do any sort of activity in his life to a guy who’s deadlifting 405! This guys really deserve more than 5 stars !!

    I’m 41, have a job with some travel commitments & 2 small children. Following a long period during which I failed to make any progress, I decided to use Alex’s online coaching service. We’ve been working together for close to 2 years. Despite not being the most consistent trainee, I’ve made steady progress and have set personal records of: bench 130 kg/285 lbs; squat 195 kg/430 lbs; deadlift 232.5 kg/512 lbs. Alex has diligently adapted my programming in response to scheduling challenges, my advancement as a lifter & injury. I strongly recommend Alex to anyone considering hiring an online coach – especially intermediate trainees for whom progress is proving to be elusive.

    Alex has been my trainer for almost THREE years now. I can’t put into words how his guidance and instruction has given my life back and let me do everything that I enjoy…. which is a lot. Started out with rehabilitating soft tissue tears in both my knees, both shoulders and degenerative disk disease in my back. I’m 52 years old and today I train and teach Jiu Jitsu full time, surf, and power lift with ZERO physical issues. Great thing about Alex is that he listens to what I need as new challenges arise and makes the necessary adjustments to get me back on track. Fantastic human being and super talented trainer.

    After a while of training in gyms or using my own schedule, Alex has been my trainer for a year now. I have made great progress and the weights have gone up. He is very flexible and adapts to my schedule while still pushing me to keep progressing. Working a busy job and having kids does provide some challenges to regular training, but I can allot the time I want per week and Alex tailors my training. And since I’m from the Netherlands, it’s great that online coaching allows me to work with him!

    Five stars is not enough. I have been working with Alex for over a year now and it’s been nothing short of fantastic. He’s so much more than a typical trainer. Incredibly knowledgeable about strength training obviously but also injury management, diet and macro training, physiology and insulin resistance,… and a top of being a really bright guy he’s also incredibly nice and fun to work with. Responsive, fun, and lighthearted. I referred at least three friends and family members who all feel the same way. The absolute best!

    I’m a 46 year old woman who hired Alex for virtual coaching because he also trains a few of my family members. I’ve worked most of my life (cardio/light weights) but decided a few years ago I wanted to build more muscle, get stronger and do it properly to avoid injuries at my age. I’ve been working with Alex for about 10 months and he has helped me develop proper form with heavy lifts, progressively overload and stay injury free. I’ve definitely gotten much stronger, been challenged and built some muscle. Alex is a thoughtful, thorough and reliable coach – I would highly recommend him!

    I am a 36 year old male and have been working with Coach Alex since August of 2021. After working through the novice linear progression on and off for a few years, I decided to get serious about lifting weights and working towards intermediate programming. Alex has been instrumental in my progress and has helped me improve both my form and technique tremendously. In just 9 months, I have managed to clean up my form tremendously and add significant weight to my deadlift and increase weight on all the other major barbell lifts. His attention to detail and ability to explain the technical aspects of lifting and programming to a less tenured trainer are two aspects of his coaching that I find most admirable. He genuinely cares about my success, concerns, and progress just as much as I do. I was skeptical about online training when I started, but I can say with 100% confidence that I am no longer a skeptic and am amazed with what Alex has taught me in such a short amount of time. Alex truly is an amazing coach!! If you are looking for a coach who will teach you the fundamentals of programming and lifting technique, look no further…Alex is your guy!!
