More About Coach Alex

I have always worked to train youth to adults and shared my past basketball experience and training techniques with them. Anywhere from the Boys and Girls Club, high school athletes, County Recreation Centers, and basketball camps. After my collegiate career, I continued to share my knowledge including coaching AAU teams in Kansas City, Milwaukee Recreation Leagues for kids and have become a successful and recommended coach right here on CoachUp. I branched off to Personal Training in Milwaukee where I worked for my ACE Certification and began to instruct on strength and conditioning for all ages. I also have my CPR/First Aid designation. I currently run a boot camp for Montgomery County Recreation and have a string of clients that I am training to gain strength and stamina for the next level of college or just everyday life. I definitely enjoy it.

I've been involved with basketball since childhood, I garnered multiple awards from the University of Missouri Kansas City summer basketball camps and played for Bishop Hogan High School in Kansas City, MO. After that, I competed at Marquette University in 1997 and stayed connected to the wealth of talent that came in the ensuing years..

A typical session lasts an entire hour filled with instruction, enthusiasm and motivation to reach your goals. I believe that a very strong core is key to any athletic endeavor so I stress that with several core strengthening exercises. A strong base also helps so different lunging techniques, box jumps, and other legs exercises are also stressed. Overall strength techniques depend on age but I'm a believer in body weight and resistance band exercises for strength. Weights as well but flexibility is just as important as strength in athletic endeavors. A training plan will be put together and all of these will be included in the hour.

Amazing coach very patient

Coach Alex is a professional.

Fast responder and answers whatever questions you may have, pushed me to my limits during our workout, and was patient in his teaching.

I would highly recommend Coach Alex if you are interested in making strides in improving.

It is now obvious why he's a gold tier coach, he deserves it.

Coach Alex is AWESOME!!! This was the first session my son completed with Alex, and he loved it! My son said he liked how Alex took time to demonstrate and explain everything with great detail. My son has been walking around practicing his shooting form and dribbling since he has been home! Coach Alex makes you feel comfortable, no matter what your level of experience is!

My son will be returning for more sessions!!

Coach Alex has helped me tremendously with his creative exercises and drills. The training sessions are non-stop action and I can feel myself improving when I'm with him. I also really appreciate his commitment and feel he is truly invested in my performance and growth. (Paraphrased from my son, age 12)

Had a great first session after not playing basketball in a long time. Coach Alex took things slow and worked with me by the basics. I’m looking forward for my progress.

Coach Alex was very patient and knowledgeable. He also challenged my son and pushed him pass his own expectations. Great session!

Coach Alex put my quiet 16 year old daughter at ease. He is very knowledgeable and skilled in the game and has a great personality for making even a self-conscious teen girl feel comfortable. He gave her great tips and helped her game improve in the first session. Highly recommended.

The pressure of selecting the correct-trainer for a child, who started Basketball much later-in-life is tremendous. You know that he or she is quickly running out of time, so there can be very little room for error, when selecting the right-trainer. Well, i can honestly say, my greatest fear has been relieved. Not only my grandson and myself , but also my wife Barbara is convinced, that after watching Coarch-K's first sessession with our Grandson, that we couldnot had made a better choice. What a Great-Coach Alex is. Donald.

Coach Alex has been phenomenal with my grandsons basketball sessions. He is very passionate about developing the skill and the person. I knew we had the right coach when I mentioned my grandsons motivation, and Coach Alex said "I'm going to love on him first." I knew that my grandson was in good hands. Thanks Coach!!!!

My son loved Coach Alex immediately and said “I’m going to be a better player!”

My son had a great 1st session with Alex. First of all, he was on time and made the check in process to the gym easy by taking care of it in advance for us! During the session, Alex honed in on the specific skills my son needed to work on right away as a center like shooting and keeping his hands up. He repeated many of the skills several times to make sure my son could execute them properly and consistently. He also spent time with me after the session to explain some of the fundamentals he showed my son and how to reinforce what he learned at home. Going forward, as Alex builds more of a rapport with my son, I would like him to place additional emphasis on the intangible skills my son needs to improve his game like aggressiveness and confidence. Overall, my son and I both were very pleased with Alex’s coaching.

My son has had several sessions with Coach Alex and it has been great! They have worked on ball handling, shooting mechanics and various drills. My son looks forward to the sessions. Thanks Coach Alex!

Coach Alex was great with my son on his first training session. I received very positive feedback from my son regarding the training session with Coach Alex. We are looking forward to training session #2!

Coach Alex assessed my son's skill level and provided a professional style workout. Coach has taken such an interest in my son's development that he has made plans to watch him play, and review video of his games. All in an attempt to customize workouts for him specifically. We look forward to working with Coach Alex and highly recommend him.

Alex is an AMAZING coach. My son Jordan can be shy but was very comfortable with Coach Alex from the beginning. Coach Alex is very patient and knowledgeable about helping players get the fundamentals of basketball down so that they can progress to be the player that they would like to be. I would definitely recommend him. 10s across the board!

Coach Alex was Awesome! He dedicated more time than scheduled to work with my son and the other athletes. Coach Alex was able to discern my son's weaknesses and gave him a few homework skills to practice during the week. My son was not comfortable with the big practice groups from previous training, and he expressed that training with Coach Alex was MUCH better! My son is much more eager and confident to start playing basketball again..... Thanks COACH ALEX!

Coach Alex was fantastic with my 12 year old son Kam! Kam felt very comfortable and told me afterwards that he learned so much from his first session! He is ready to practice everyday after school on his shooting, dribbling and foot work techniques! We are definitely signing up for more 1-on-1 training with Coach Alex!

Alex was a great coach!

Coach Alex is the best coach someone can ever think of. Only on the first day, my shot was getting better and my ball handling was improving. Thanks coach I look forward in getting more sessions with you.

Coach Alex is a great coach so far I have only done 2 lessons, but within those 2 lessons, my shot has really improved. Fixing the slightest errors which are still not yet perfect but are getting there, I have learned how to properly follow through and fix the fade on my shot. Coach Alex has also given me work on my handling improving my dribbling and different combo moves into a shot. Overall I would highly recommend anybody who is looking to seriously train and take their game to the next level, to Coach Alex as he will provide them with that and much more.

Coach Alex was great with my 10 and 8 year old boys. They received a lot of instructions during their drills and learned proper basketball jargon and technique. Happy to have him work with the boys.

After one session with Coach Alex I felt like I knew what I really knew to work one. He pushed me to work hard and I definitely saw an improvement in my ball handling and shooting mechanics

My son had his first training session with Alex today. They worked on coordination and foot work. My son had a great time and is looking forward d to his next session! I am anxious to see how he progresses while working with Alex!

Alex does an Amazing job working with my son. Very attentive to his needs on the court and focuses on fixing his mechanics as well as strengthening his weaknesses.

Coach Alex had already built confidence in my son's playing abilities. He said it is fun but his sessions have already helped him So much with his dribbling and shooting skills. Now he wants to play everytime we drive past a court lol. He cannot wait til he has his next session. I am truly thankful.

Coach Alex has just the right combination of basketball knowledge and skills, professionalism, and engagement. He was personable and quick to assess areas of strengths and weaknesses for my son. He developed a plan for growth and provided feedback. My 16 year son who has been playing basketball AAU for the past 6 years said that he believes Coach Alex can help get him to the next level for AAU and varsity school basketball. Thanks Coach Alex we look forward to working with you more!

Coach Alex took my son through a good first time session with drills that will strengthen the position he currently plays. I'd recommend him.

Really enjoyed working with Alex. He's very patient and really stresses fundamentals.

Coach Alex is great to work with. His drills are effective. He works with you in developing the right skills to make you a better athlete.

Very patient
