Alejandro Terrazas, Fitness Coach & Online Trainer
Coming to the United States from Bolivia when Alejandro was only 14 was a challenge, from learning a new culture, to language to overall lifestyle. His struggle with being bullied and always being told that he was incapable of anything made his life a true challenge. As he grew older he developed the skill to attain confidence and mental strength through fitness, allowing himself to become a lion who tears his fears apart. In a society where we lack self confidence and motivation, Alejandro believes as a coach his job is to help any client truly master their fears through training. And by becoming stronger, powerful and unleashing themselves from those chains of “you can’t”. He motivates every single client to make their own shadow, and develop a new and stronger healthy lifestyle. He's here to help you live longer.
