Mike Alexander has been a personal trainer and sports coach for more than 20 years. He grew up in Annapolis, Maryland playing most sports but primarily football and lacrosse. He enlisted into The US Navy shortly after graduating high school where he served for 6 years on board a US Navy ship, stationed in Japan. He then played and coached club level lacrosse and flag football for 10 years until tearing his ACL in a championship game. 

As a coach,  Mike is fully committed to helping people achieve their fitness goals. "There is an inner-athlete in everyone, and part of why I love coaching is I get to help bring that 'inner-athlete' out from hiding, and to full circle." CrossFit is one of the platforms that Mike uses to get his clients and athletes into the best shape of their lives. Although, well into his 40's and a few sports injuries later, Coach Mike still trains 4-5 days per week.  If he isn't coaching, he might just jump into a WOD (workout of the day) with you!
