Alex is a Houston-born physical therapist, holding a Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions. Graduating from the Kaiser Permanente orthopedic residency program in Oakland, he specializes in orthopedics.

With over a decade of experience in martial arts like Muay Thai, kickboxing, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Alex believes in living life to the fullest through the enjoyment of movement.
