I am Alex Folacci,
A world-class athlete, 2-time National Champion of France in Track & Field, international medalist, and Certified Personal Trainer in NYC.
I attained the pinnacle of my athletic career by developing a unique approach and understanding of the human body's Biomechanics and Physiology. For as long as I can remember I have always been obsessed about learning as many techniques and fitness methods as possible in order to win gold medals and break records.
I am an eternal student and study everyday new training methods and longevity research.
I also received 3 times the NEW YORK AWARD in the Personal Training category, and I have been recognized by many independent sources and websites as the "best Personal Trainer for men in NYC".
I specialize in coaching highly successful gentlemen over 35 in Manhattan, looking to lose 30-50 lbs of fat, build 10-20 lbs of natural muscles, boost productivity, fix their diet, improve posture and strength, and live a longer & healthier life.
As of 2023, I have coached and changed the lives of over 400 people as a Certified Personal Trainer in Manhattan, New York!
My Biggest athletic achievement:
In 2013, I proudly won the national championship of France for the second time in the decathlon, serving as my own coach.
Despite being 5'9" and competing against athletes averaging 6'3", I achieved a performance that remains unbeaten for the past decade.
Highlight Reel of Amazing Performances
Frequently Asked Questions:
1) Am I guaranteed to reach my goals if I hire you?
So far 100% of the clients that were motivated, and followed all my instructions and advice reached their goals. The only clients who didn't improve enough are the ones who trained only once a week, and always negotiate to do less repetitions and lighter weights during our workouts. I usually tell these clients that I can not work with them anymore because I prefer to give my time to someone very motivated and hard worker.
2) Are your workouts very hard?
I usually like to do a cycle of 1 easy workout, 1 medium, 1 hard, 1 medium.
I always adjust the intensity and the amount of reps based on your body language and what you were able to do previously (I always take notes). My goal is to always challenge you to your best in a safe way. If I see your form is getting dangerous, I will stop you right away and adjust the exercise.
3) Will you help me with the diet?
Yes of course! I am not the kind of trainer who believes in very strict dieting. I eat very bad myself, and I'm definitely a bad example for my clients. But my goal is to make a few strategic replacements like switching potatoes with sweet potatoes, finding tasty and healthy alternatives for you.
4) I have back/knees/shoulder injuries, can you still coach me?
I've had over 100 injuries myself, during 28 years of practicing 20 different sports. Thanks to these injuries I have learned many ways to rehab my body, and to keep working out without making it worse.
I specifically have helped many clients with lower back, shoulders, and knees injuries.
5) Do you travel to me for the workouts?
Yes I will come to your building if you have a gym, or will advise a gym nearby your apartment or office. My territory is Manhattan (below 70th st, until Wall st) and sometimes Brooklyn.
6) Do you coach women?
I am specialized in coaching highly successful men over 35, but sometimes I can make an exception and take female clients. I was coaching Kari Pearce on her running for example, and she became the fittest woman in America 4 years in a row, and was on the podium of the CrossFit Games.
7) Do you coach couples or group classes?
I coach many couples, mostly gay couples and I love the LGBTQ community!
I do not give group classes, this isn't my expertise.
