Alex has been doing CrossFit for about one year. She quickly became part of the CFE family. Originally from New York City, Alex now resides in Burlington with her husband, Mark and 3 kids, Jack, Coral and Ava. Alex always finds time to fit her workouts into her busy schedule (you can too!) as a mom of 3, wife and acupuncture nurse in the army. She is the definition of a super mom!
