Alex Backhouse has been in the fitness industry for over 10 years.
Serving his apprenticeship at the South Coast’s first full-time MMA facility was probably a little different to most instructors’ first gym jobs.
As well as studying with the behemoths in the business like J C Santana, Charles Poliquin, Lee Morgan and Pat Sherwood, Alex is currently working towards an MSc in Strength & Conditioning at St Mary’s University, Twickenham.
His clients include UFC fighters, professional rugby players, psychologists and music producers.
He now owns his own Studio in Hove where he trains both members of the public and athletes with his fad-free, no nonsense approach to strength, fitness and health.
