We have a true passion for fitness.
All of our trainers have their own remarkable story of how our workout and studios have changed their bodies and lives. Their stories are the source of their passion to get you the results you're seeking.
You don't need more time, you need more intensity.
Alex has worked with thousands of people to achieve their fitness and athletic recovery goals, including many celebrities like NBC's Natalie Morales (pictured above) and elite pro athletes such as NFL Pro Bowler and Superbowl contestant Josh Norman. He has tried practically every fitness modality as part of his long athletic background and has never found any workout that provides the level of intensity and results that the Lagree Method offers.

All levels are welcome in Alex's classes. He especially enjoys training men to go the next level of performance or to help them initiate a complete fitness transformation. Discover how Core MOcean can unlock a hidden dimension of strength you never knew you had!
