Alex

“I’M GOING TO MAKE YOU SO PROUD – NOTE TO SELF!"

Alex

Alex possesses a competitive drive that helped take her to the international level in Ultimate Frisbee and now fuels her preparation for CrossFit competitions. As a competitive athlete she spends lots of time training & loves getting stronger and lifting heavy things, but of course lots of time is also devoted to the more technical aspects of the sport – Olympic lifting and gymnastics movements to name a few. What little time is left is spent on her other gig – working on her Master’s thesis in Exercise Psychology, as well as her sidekick Martie who often accompanies her to Energia and can be found wrestling with our own four-legged mascot Mila. Alex has an upbeat, positive and supportive vibe that will encourage you to believe in yourself and accomplish the unexpected.
