Hi, I’m Alex! I am the head coach at Dreamtown CrossFit. I was born and raised in Truckee. Spent my younger years as a multi-sport athlete playing tennis, ski racing, baseball, soccer, and swimming. I eventually had to narrow it down to one sport and became a swimmer. I swam competitively all through high school and eventually earned a scholarship to swim for the University of Hawaii.

After my time as a swimmer, I suffered a skiing accident that I thought would have debilitated me for life. I chose the latter and needed to find something that could break that idea. I found CrossFit in Hawaii and when I began could barely do an air squat. CrossFit got me on the path to moving again. I immediately became immersed in the culture and community and CrossFit became a passion.

I have been coaching CrossFit for over a year and a half now and currently have my CFL1.

During my free time, I love to do all things outdoors. Outside of the gym, I am always mountain biking, surfing, swimming, skiing.. the list goes on.

Overall CrossFit and coaching have given me the opportunity to become a better athlete, friend, neighbor, and human being
