Welcome to AW Fitness. AW stands for my name, Alex Woodson. I'm 48 years young, and an independent certified personal trainer (NFPT) and IFBB Men's Physique Pro. I started my personal training career training clients at a big box gym in. After about a year, I was promoted to the gym's top trainer position. I have extensive experience training both men and women of all ages for both weight loss and muscle gain. I specialize in strengthening as well as toning clients up while also building their endurance and strengthen their core and balance. At the big box gym, I gained a lot of experience and trained a large number of people. Since then, I have moved on to  work for myself as an independent trainer in 2014 and this has allowed me to provide a more exclusive and personalized service to my training clients. Whether we use a studio gym in Minnetonka or Eden Prairie that I used to train clients at, or I travel to your home or place of business, I will provide you with the knowledge, instruction, and a customized workout plan and nutritional guidance to help achieve your fitness goals in a timely manner. Working with me on your exercise and nutrition together will yield you the best results in the shortest amount of time. You can't do one and not the other, and expect good results. It's a combination of both and I'll take the guesswork out of it and show you how, leaving you more time to focus on other aspects of your life. Contact me for rates, available times, and about a complimentary consultation. For those that don't live in the Minneapolis, MN area, I offer online coaching too (See my Online Coaching page). Together, we'll get you in the best shape of your life!
