COACH DAVID BIO
Coach David Alexander
I have been training and coaching Fighters, High School Athletes, Kids, Grandmas and Non-Athletes for years. Before moving to San Juan Island, I owned an MMA and CrossFit gym in beautiful Kingman, AZ and had a stable of fighters (adult and youth) who fought for our fight team in MMA, Muay Thai and Grappling which has helped me to develop as a trainer and coach. What makes a great coach is knowledge of the sport, how to build a training program to reach the goals of the athlete or team and a passion & desire to pass on that knowledge. In addition to my own training I am a consummate student, obsessive researcher & reader and am constantly learning and developing my training methods. In addition to extensive Diet (Paleo Nutrition Certification by Biochemist/Author Robb Wolf) and Strength & Conditioning (Certified CrossFit Coach and Barbell Strength Training Technique and Programming) studies and seminars, I have spent thousands of hours studying Mark Rippetoe’s Starting Strength Barbell Training Techniques and Programming, Vital Point Targeting, MMA, BJJ, Grappling, Boxing, Karate, and Muay Thai training methods and fights in person, television, DVD, YouTube, Instructional DVD’s, Downloads and extensive reading. I have talked with some of the best fighters and coaches from around the world (see PICTURES) and have attended many of the best seminars. Needless to say, I have spent thousands of hours and thousands of dollars on my pursuit to put together the absolute best training programs in the world! In addition to studying MMA I have also become an expert and do seminars (CoachDavidAlexander.com) in REAL Self Defense and how to destroy the human machine. I have used this extra knowledge and expertise to add a unique twist on how to destroy an opponent in the sport of MMA (“Plays” and “Targets”) see at FreeMMASchool.com. In the end, all that matters are results. If you can learn a few great techniques and strategies that help you get to the next level of your Strength & Conditioning/Weight Loss goals or Fight Career, then I have done my job!
