Alan's fitness journey began while playing Division 1 baseball at West Virginia University, after which a spinal injury forced him to turn down an offer to play for the Milwaukee Brewers. His road to recovery is where his passion for health and fitness was born. He has now been working in the fitness industry for five years, picks a new certification to complete every year and trains all realms of athletes. He designs his classes to challenge you, but more importantly, to maximize your time and effort. His philosophy is work hard, lift properly, and have a damn good time doing it.
