TJ Alfano

NASM CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER BACHELORS OF SCIENCE KINESIOLOGY SAN DIEGO STATE UNIVERSITY TJ Alfano

My passion for exercising started at a very young age when I first played baseball at age 5. I played baseball and basketball competitively my whole life. In high school I learned from my baseball personal trainer the proper ways to eat and work out. This led me to San Diego State where I earned a Bachelors in Kinesiology with a Fitness Specialist emphasis.

A few years later I became a certified personal trainer through NASM. I am very motivated by being able to teach others proper workouts and healthy eating habits to keep a happy and healthy long living life. Everything should be in moderation with lots of variety whether it comes to workouts or the food you eat.

When I am not at the gym or training you can find me collecting old vinyl records, making music, and running sound for bands at concerts and festivals. My favorite outdoor activity is playing basketball and going frisbee golfing. I am creative, hard working, disciplined, caring, outgoing and ready to help you achieve your goals.
