Originally from the East Coast, Alex came to the Bay Area on a temporary work assignment. Temporary turned into permanent when she accepted a full-time position as a clinical laboratory scientist at Alta Bates Summit Medical Center in Berkeley. Her relocation to the Bay Area also sparked another desire: to become a fitness instructor. Alex had always been active and was absolutely mesmerized by the dynamic of group fitness classes, so she decided to get certified and has been teaching ever since. Alex finds that setting and reaching goals inside the studio motivates her to reach her life goals outside the studio, and she wants her riders to find that same motivation and strength in every one of her classes.
