Having spent the last 17 years as a gymnastics instructor, Alex Gastelum has been inadvertently prepping for the instructor's podium for a long time. Over those many years, Alex learned that the most effective instruction includes enthusiasm, empathy, respect, and, on occasion, an iron fist. With his high-energy shout-outs and next-level intentions, Alex has been known to get the whole room whooping and hollering! When you take his class, you'll hear a good mix of sounds, with an emphasis on old-school hip hop sprinkled with a Latin flavor.
Nothing gives Alex more satisfaction than helping others increase their confidence through training. Arriving at the gym every morning at 5:00 am has taught Alex that consistency, coupled with determination, leads to success,and he tries to convey this message to his riders in every class. When he's not riding, you can find him in the barber chair (every Friday, 8:00 am on the dot), spending time with his family and friends, or putting together his next play list and prepping to see you in class! Slam it!
My classes are all about energy and taking it to the next level even at the crack of dawn. I love to see progress in others. The excitement, determination and will power inspires me to guide others on their journey. I like making a difference in someone's life and helping them build self-esteem and confidence.
"Slam it and werk her!"
