Offseason Coaching

First 3 Months

The first 3 months is a mandatory period for new trainees. It’s crucial for us to determine if our relationship is mutually beneficial before committing to a longer term.

Monthly $150USD
3 Months $400USD
6 Months $650USD
12 Months $1,200USD

Contest Preparation Coaching – $700USD

Your Offseason Prep fee will count towards a Contest Prep, should you start.

I do not like to take on preps midway through, or put the “finishing touches” on someone’s prep. However, on a case by case basis I will consider it. I cannot make magic happen in 6 weeks if you’re way behind and I’d prefer not to take your money and over promise results.

Please come to me in advance of the prep by 3-4 weeks and allow time to get acclimated, set up your program and diet so we can start full on. I want you ready EARLY so we can cover the smallest details without worrying about if you’re going to make it in shape for your show.

I coach many divisions in many leagues. I have the most clientele in men’s bodybuilding but I have a full list of physique both men and women’s, bikini and figure.

I will always give you an honest appraisal of what is needed to reach your goals. I will not sugar coat it, I will not fib to you about how good you are. I assume what you want is to be your best and that’s what I will always strive for.

Client Benefits


Team Metal has a private client forum where all check ins are logged and plans are laid out. We check in often and rely on this to continually monitor progress.


In addition, clients may email at any time and will get a reply within 12 hours, usually in 2-3 hours max.


When needed, especially in prep, I keep my phone handy and will converse via text or messenger to ensure that you are on point at all times.

My goal is that every client feels like I only coach them,
but also provide a team community that drives and empowers you to exceed your goals!

What Clients Are Saying

If I had to sum up my experience working with alex, I’d say: Very attentative, inspiring and way above my initial expectations. I honestly don’t know where to start, so I will start with when I first started working with him.

I started off in with a pretty high bodyfat percentage typical gym rat. I approached alex (before I knew him) and asked him what it would take for me to compete… One thing I love about his coaching style is that he is VERY straight forward! If you are looking for a coach to pump you up full of false promises and asskissing compliments, you are going to the wrong person lol. Alex will tell you the honest TRUTH right from the get go, but when you do receive a compliment or he does have positive feedback, you can believe it is true and well deserved.

When I started with alex I already had a plethora of information and knowledge on diet nutrition and in general working out. I still to this day don’t begin to touch the surface of knowledge and experience this guy has. I continue to learn so much from him. Not only was he a great coach when I met him, but he has continued month after month year after year manage to become even more skilled and adaptive, to the point where he will generate diet changes/ workout tweaks on a day to day and during prep hour to hour basis depending on specific needs and changes to athletes.

He is very responsive, not only to me personally but any athlete that he coaches that is willing to put in the work. He also coached my wife into her first show, and I must say I truly have no idea how he dealt with her lol! No matter what the issue was with her or myself, he always had an answer whether it was the immediate solution or a suggestion, he always finds a way to make it work. As far as health is concerned, I literally trust him that he cares about my health before anything. Actually through his help and our brainstorming convos we were able to identify handful of health problems that occurred during the time period we have worked together (I have a very sensative body lol) He will never risk anyones health to win a competition. He is actually on the conservative side and knows when and when not to push. He always makes sure athletes bloodwork is good and in check and the athlete is healthy before he implements anything.

I went from a typical gymrat to a superheavy npc competitor in less then a year placing 3rd in one of my classes and 4th in the 2016 jay cutler classic, my first show. About a year and a half later I stepped on stage another 10lbs heavier with the same striated glute conditioning and took 1st and 2nd in the 2017new england championships. He continually impresses me with not only my personal progress, but with ALL of the members of team metal. He also created a great team environnment where we all support and help each other on a regular basis. I really love working with him and will continue to do so as long as we continue to progress (or as he says until I die lol)

If I could use only one word to describe my experience with Alex it would be DEDICATED!

No matter how many clients he has, no matter how big his team gets, you would never feel it because he is dedicated to making you feel like you are his one and only client. From off season, to contest prep and even during a National competition, he has been dedicated to me and my needs every single moment. He is knowledgeable about the industry, about nutrition, about varies types of physiques and about how to make the necessary adjustments at just the right time to help you be the very best you can be. He truly cares about the health & well being of his athlete’s! Follow his lead, 100%, he will take you where you want to go.

Kim Watson-Pitts

My name is Ashley and I have been a client of Alex’s since June 2015. I had been training and trying to get the hang of nutrition for about a couple of years prior to meeting him. From the moment I met Alex, I knew he was someone that could help me achieve my goals and completely change my lifestyle.

Alex has not only been a coach to me, but he has also been a great friend and a mentor and someone I can look up to. During the last year and a half I have been challenged and pushed passed my limits. I couldn’t ask for a better role model. Alex has impressed me with his passion in bodybuilding, his passion to help each and every client of his, and his knowledge. It is because of him that I have gotten as far as I have and I continue to work with him for as long as he can put up with me!

Ashley Thompson

I decided to work with Alex two years ago. Since then, he’s helped my physique progress substantially and bring a better physique each time I’ve competed. What really sets Alex apart from other coaches is his integrity, attentiveness and availability. It’s great to work with somebody who is invested in you doing well, pays close attention to detail and most importantly, someone who conducts himself in an honest and ethical manner.

Gabriel Bourgeios

From my experience working with Alex, he is a coach that is knowledgable, committed and believes in his clients. Most of all he genuinely cares for his clients.
