Choose Alex as your Coach:

I have 10+ years of coaching experience that started at the high school level before moving up to the collegiate, post-collegiate/elite level and now personal coaching levels. I fell in love with the sport starting in middle school over 20 years ago running for my dad. Which then led to 3 state championships in high school and a scholarship to Michigan State then joining the Hansons-Brooks ODP. I still run at a high level even though it’s more divided now with a family (wife and 2 kids) and coaching others to achieve their personal goals. I love coaching motivated runners of all levels that want to advance their running careers. My main goal, however, is to take the stress and difficulty that can come with structuring your training/running so that you can enjoy it to the fullest.
