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.
