DUDES WHO LAGREE: ALEX BARRIOS

Alex previously suffered from knee and back injuries coupled with a poor posture #deskjoblife. Now his core and leg game is strong and he kills it in all the sports he loves. Read on for more:
When did you start Fierce45?
I started attending Fierce45 in January of 2016!
What ran through your head in your first class?
I’ve always thought of myself as strong. I enjoy running, lifting, and yoga...but when I did my first class, it really humbled me. I thought, "What the heck is happening?! I'm really struggling! But I love it!”
How many classes have you completed so far?
As of today, I've done 126 classes.
What changes have you seen in your body since you started this method?
I have struggled with knee and back pain from old football injuries. Couple that with sitting at a desk all day, I wasn't feeling great and I had poor posture. This method has completely improved my core and leg strength thus improving my posture. I've never felt better.
What is your favorite part of this method/studio?
As it says on my favorite Fierce45 hoodie, "hard every time." No matter how often I go or how strong I've become, the variety and intensity makes it a challenge every class. I never leave class thinking, "That was easy!”
Why do you think Lagree is beneficial for men specifically?
Lagree has made me a better athlete in every other way. My skiing, yoga, running, biking, football, softball, volleyball games have up leveled. Not only from a strength perspective, but also balance and endurance.
What do you do outside of the studio (job, hobbies, etc.)?
I love spending time with my girlfriend and Fierce45 coach Audrey Carlson. We love to travel, cook, play sports, go to pro sports games, and live a clean, loving vegetarian lifestyle. I work as an investment consultant for an Mutual Fund/ETF shop as well.
