Alex is a Certified Kettlebell Kickboxing Instructor (KBIA) currently teaching in our NYC flagship facility. Besides her love for fitness Alex is an avid Muay Thai practitioner. She has competed in amateur Muay thai kickboxing, thus earning her place in the AMAA competition team and representing Andersons Martial Arts Academy at the WKA (World Kickboxing Association) tournament. Kettlebells were a big component for her fight training and preparation. Her passion for training and physical conditioning is never ending. Indulging in soccer and gymnastics at an early age while living in her native Russia, she later moved to the U.S and took up swimming, earning a place on her high school swimming team. Upon graduating college and earning a M.A in psychology and behavioral science, Alex developed a passion for martial arts, driving her to take her love for training and physical conditioning to a new level by taking up an array of arts ranging from Muay Thai, boxing, Jeet Kune Do and Filipino combat arts at Anderson’s Martial Arts Academy NYC. A self proclaimed “gym rat” she has been pushing herself diligently for over 14 years through weight training, yoga, martial arts, and continues to do so daily. “Fitness is not a fad, it’s a lifestyle.” and Alex is proud to bring that mantra to her Kettlebell Kickboxing™ classes.
