Alan Makar
Having had an active childhood (Alan is especially well versed in martial arts) helped Alan realize his passion for health and fitness. He has the ability to instinctively know what works for a client, and is able to make the client’s goals achievable. Alan believes in the ‘KISS’ method of training- keeping it simple and straightforward, to help his clients achieve their goals. Alan helps his clients understand the importance of being disciplined and teaches them the significance of structure, as well as the value of overall wellness. Alan is always on the hunt for the three 'F's--- exercises that are fun, functional, and form shifting! His method of training is one of support. He believes in building up (not breaking down!) a client's motivation, dedication, and drive.
