#006 – Former National Gymnast Alex MacInnis on Crossfit, Handstands, Yoga, and Eating for Performance

We bring on a special guest today: Alex MacInnis, a Former National Gymnast and Gymnastics teacher.

After years of training upward of 15-20 hours every week, MacInnis became a leading athlete for gymnastics on PEI, competing at his first Canada Winter Games in 2003 and moving forward to represent his province at 7 Canadian National Championships.

Viewed as “one of the strongest, fittest and most flexible” gymnasts in PEI history, MacInnis used these skills to earn a spot as the first PEI gymnast to ever compete in event finals on pommel horse at National Championships.

Now, as founder of “Alex Kazam Gymnastics” MacInnis has combined his gymnastics skills and coaching experience to form a unique blend of gymnastics and crossfit. Having trained and coached with some of Canada’s top Crossfit athletes at Crossfit NCR, he continues to grow as a coach and learning from other perspectives and coaching styles from around the world.

We cover a wide array of topics this podcast, but if yoga, crossfit, gymnastics, and diet are of interest, give this a listen!
