Alexander is an outlier in the fitness world, coming from an artistic background as a trained dancer with degree in performance choreography. After injuries took him away from his dream of being a principal ballet dancer, he heavily investigated training, rehab, and what it meant to become stronger and achieve better health. In 2009, he began personal training part time, and he realized he had a passion for teaching. Since that time, he relentlessly focused all his efforts on improving his professional skillset and becoming the best asset he can be to his clients. In 2012, he began writing, with his first articles published on elitefts. Since that time, he became an elitefts columnist and has maintained a voracious output as a writer. His content can be found on elitefts, in his bimonthly column, as well numerous fitness websites, in mainstream magazines, and his own website. Having worked under John Meadows as a coach, and maintained a constant high volume training clientele for almost 8 years, his maverick perspectives and practices distinguish his place in the industry.
John Meadows' expertise on shoulder training filled a void in the atmosphere of bodybuilding information. I've incorporated rear delt work with all of my clients, and I've learned a few things along the way.
