Athlete, CFL Player, Health Enthusiast
To try something new, Alex only started playing football in grade eleven at high school in St. Catharines Ontario!
With hard work, intense training and a special focus on improving his diet, Alex put extra weight on and turned heads in the sport he had discovered. He ended playing football at the University of Guelph while studying kinesiology.
After four years playing for Guelph, Alex was drafted to the Montreal Alouettes Canadian Football League. In 2017 Alex was traded to the Toronto Argonauts CFL association. A year that proved to be most victorious as the team successfully won the Grey Cup final.
As a pro-player Alex realized early on the importance of developing a preventative approach against muscle deterioration and nutrient depletion in order to decrease his risk of injury.
Alex had gained basic nutrition information from his university education over the years. This, along with special insight from coworkers (naturopathy students he had met while working at a supplement store) propelled Alex to learn more about natural health.
Today his extensive knowledge about natural health products helps him choose products that reduce inflammation, increase absorption of nutrients and speed his recovery time after intense training.
