Ambitious, courageous, and always humble, Alex Holguin has surrounded himself with competition and athletic sports training his entire life. West Texas born, Alex grew up in El Paso, where he found his first love of basketball. He was a varsity athlete in a very competitive 5-A district, where his career was cut short in the regional semi-finals in the UIL State Texas playoffs. To find greener pastures, Alex moved to San Antonio shortly after his high school graduation and began to pursue his athletic ambitions. Alex began working out, lifting heavy with less focus on mobility and functional movements in a “Globo Gym” style of training. Then in mid 2012, Alex was introduced to CrossFit and was instantly invigorated. His new passion led him to start his own apprenticeship to be the best CrossFit coach the city has to offer. With a passion for learning, Alex is now a CrossFit Level 1 Trainer and a USA Weightlifting Level 1 Sport Performance Coach. He is currently pursuing his Bachelors in Kinesiology and Sports Medicine from the University of Texas at San Antonio. Alex takes great pride in helping his athletes reach a higher level of functional fitness through hard work and determination, and while doing so, improving ones self worth!
