Joe Alexander is a flowmaster for CrossFit Level 1 Trainer Courses, and he loves teaching.

“The most passionate thing about CrossFit for me is it allows me to compress many different interests I have into one entity,” says Alexander, whose academic background is in psychology and neuroscience. He’s also coach to 2012 Reebok CrossFit Games second-place finisher Matt Chan.

“This allows me to do something that I believe is genuinely leaving a positive footprint on humanity,” he adds.

Alexander is also a husband with a 1-year-old baby and can sometimes be seen playing the classical guitar.

As a Level 1 Seminar Staff member, he says he is able to combine his love of teaching with his educational background.

“It feels like CrossFit picked me more than I picked it,” he explains.

Great instructor, was one of my Level 1 eye openers. Very passionate about CrossFit and awesome motivator. Good to see stories about guys like Joe whose impact is reaching out to thousands now through those who were lucky enough to have him at their cert. He also ate a glob of strawberry butter at our Saturday night dinner in the middle of nutrition discussion!!

had 1 question: what's with the word "vagina" at 3:23? random!
