We had the good fortune of connecting with Alexander Lee and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Alexander, what role has risk played in your life or career?
In order to be successful you have to take risk. Taking risk has gotten me to where I am today. I lost my job at Amazon and said this it. I am going to chase my dream of Personal Training. I only had money for the certification and didn’t pay my car note because I knew this is what I really wanted. I got my certification and didn’t work a 9-5 since. Over 1 whole year late me and still changing lives.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Becoming a fitness professional has its challenges. Only the strong survive in this business. It was not easy especially from coming into this business as an introvert. I had to be more outspoken and try my best to perfect my craft. Everyday I was trying to improve on training others and myself as well. Clients come in to but every client I’ve trained I made to give them value. Being someone who truly care about them and not there money is what separates me from most trainers.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Strait up we going to Seaside or Chapman & Kirby. We gone get a section and have great vibes.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Definitely want to shout out to my real friends who gave me honest opinions and great constructive criticism. They know who they are.
