About AE Wellness
Self-Care + Wellness Coach
Hi! My name is Alex – I’m a coach, writer, former yogi, kettlebell devotee, and 100% Body Nerd.
I teach people how to use self-care and movement to feel amazing every single day.
With a degree in Exercise Biology, experience in physical therapy and athletic training, and a decade of training people in body-weight strength and stretch programs, I now teach people in months what took me so long to figure out: how stay out of pain while getting stronger and more flexible (without having to spend hours in the gym).
My life’s mission is to better understand how the body works to help you take back control of your self-care, strength, and injury recovery. And your journey to being pain-free and feeling amazing every day doesn’t have to be complicated – we can even get you there in less than 15-mins a day.
5 Things You Wish You Could Ask Me (but now don’t have to!)
- My perfect day would start with a hot cup of Earl Grey tea (with a splash of NutPods), journaling, a book, a hike with my dog and husband, and the rest of the day at Disneyland!
- If I was stranded on a deserted island, the 5 things I’d want to bring along are my Therapy Balls, dark chocolate, a 35 lb Kettlebell, a Kindle pre-loaded with every New York Times Best Seller and an umbrella to enjoy my books in the shade.
- If I need a reset, you can find me at Disneyland – I love that it is so curated and predictable. Feeling like a kid helps me to reset! (and yes, I always wear my Mickey ears)
- My daily non-negotiable self-care is walking, gratitude and a good night’s rest. Without any of these three, I end up feeling on edge and stressed out.
- If I wasn’t in fitness I’d be a chef – I love eating just as much as I love cooking. I cook meals at home 4-5 days a week (and freeze the rest to pull out on a leftovers night!)
My podcast The Body Nerd Show where I share weekly tips and inspiration to help you take back control of your health and wellbeing.
