Each instructor at the school is a professional musician, and fully equipped with the know-how to catapult instrumentalists to the crest of Mount Rockmore.
Fitness has always been part of Alex Medina's life. After playing football and running track in high school, he knew he wanted to channel his athletic ability into something more meaningful, and joined the Marine Corps. During his five years of service, he learned to fly a plane and spent numerous hours in the sky, which led him to study at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. He then went on to Mueller College, where he became a sports nutrition specialist, a certified personal trainer, and a member of the National Strength and Conditioning Association.
Though a lot has changed for Alex since high school, his passion for fitness remains. In addition to playing semi-pro football, he now owns Fit 2 Ripped Fitness?an outdoor boot-camp program. Along with his fellow trainers, he leads fit-seekers in burning calories and building muscles during always-varying, high-intensity routines. One day, you might swing kettlebells and do push-ups, and then next you might do crunches and flip tires end-over-end until they agree to personally train you.
