Meet Alex! He’s a Walmart Supervisor and has been with 8035 for 4 months now! We love his enthusiasm and willingness to embrace coaching and work hard!

Highlights from his CrossFit experience: He has lost 13 lbs and quit smoking and drinking!!! Alex is active for the first time and feeling fantastic (and looking great, we might add)!

Why does he keep coming back: The coaches and members are friendly and motivating! He’s been to other CrossFits but 8035 is the “nicest around.” Alex feels like he’s part of a family and told us “As long as you guys offer CrossFit, I’m here.”

Something most people don’t know about him: He can make some kick ass bird noises…it’s legit!
