Born in Colombia, S America, Alex’s love of movement began with the great outdoors. He has been coaching professionally for over 10 years in the UK, and now worldwide. Through his own personal fitness and wellness journey he has studied and been guided by many exceptional practitioners from a wide range of disciplines including Ido Portal, Coach Sommer and Miguel Santana.
Alex doesn’t believe any one discipline has advantages over any other but that there are underlying movement principles that can help all practitioners move more effectively and efficiently. From this open-minded starting point Alex is constantly learning himself in order to be able to offer the very best to his own practice and that of his clients. Alex gets results through his simple and quality focussed approach, and by instilling confidence and self belief in his clients with his extensive knowledge and coaching skills.
“With each client my goal is to guide them through improving their body awareness, flexibility and strength to equip them for the years to come with a greater range of motion and strong resilient bodies”
