Alex Alonso has been CrossFitting for 4 years. Having had a background in High School sports (Football, soccer, volleyball, wrestling), he enjoyed the personal challenge of being the best well rounded athlete he could be. Having experienced that with CrossFit, he wanted to help others through their own personal journeys of being the best versions of themselves.
Prior to coaching at Resolution, Alex worked in the medical field for 5 years. He spent 3 years working on a 911 ambulance as an EMT, responding to a wide variety of emergencies alongside with the Anaheim Fire Department. To broaden his knowledge and experience, he transferred to the hospital setting where he worked as an ER Technician for 2 years.
“Physicians are lifeguards. Trainers are swim coaches. When you need a lifeguard, you need a lifeguard, not a swim coach. But, if you need a lifeguard, you probably needed a swim coach and didn’t get one.” ~ Greg Glassman
“One of my favorite quotes is from Greg Glassman involving the analogy of being a swim coach and a life guard. I have learned a lot during my time in the medical field, and I have seen a lot of short term answers for long term problems. I truly believe CrossFit can help alleviate many of those issues by focusing on what is most important in life, by improving our health both physically and mentally. I want to be that swim coach.”
