Alex Mitchell started exercise instruction as a personal trainer at a globogym in North Atlanta. Armed with a newly minted ACSM certification, he set about working with clients using the best practices of the “Gold Standard” in fitness education. 6 months into his tenure he began to notice that his clients looked, felt, and performed only marginally better than they did when they signed up with him. This caused him to look for something more effective, which is when he found barbell training.
Now Alex coaches strength training at the Medical Empowerment Center in Sandy Springs, GA, where he works with patients dealing with chronic or life threatening diseases to improve medical outcomes through training. Alex has coached all manner of clients in his road to becoming a well-trained strength coach, but specializes in masters clients or clients starting from a low base of strength.
