EPIC Coaches

Our coaches are unique in their backgrounds, which makes their teaching at EPIC
different than other gyms. That’s where we separate ourselves from the rest.

Owner and founder of EPIC Hybrid Training in New York City, member of the Reebok Spartan Pro Team, and lead coach. Alex has countless race podium finishes from Spartan to Duathalons and never backs away from a challenge.
