Private Self Defense Lessons
Alex did some personal training and self defense sessions for myself and two teenage children. He brought equipment and was very knowledgeable about strength training, different abilities, and self defense techniques. It was great to be able to workout at home and with my older kids. We hope to resume classes with him later this summer.May 23, 2017VerifiedPersonal Training Fitness Self Defense AK-Systema's reply
Mona, thanks a lot for your kind review! I'll be happy to resume our sessions as soon as you find a time in your busy schedule!
Private Self Defense Lessons
This was my first Thumbtack experience so I did not know what to expect. I called Alex and booked an initial meeting for a self defense class. I was so impressed with his knowledge and ability to teach to me (someone with absolutely no experience in self defense) that I hired him immediately. I would recommend him in a minute, I can't explain how much fun each training is while at the same time also getting a tailored workout as well as learning useful and practical skills!!Sep 20, 2017VerifiedPersonal Training Fitness Self Defense AK-Systema's reply
Thank you , Lana!!!
I trained with Alex for over a year while working in the Herndon area. I've worked with several different trainers over the years, and Alex helped me produce more results far more quickly than the others. Every workout was custom tailored to my needs and fitness levels, and he never let anything become routine or boring. He was also very careful to observe my every move, ensuring that I didn't injure myself through improper technique. I recommend his service whole-heartedly and without reservation - he is simply one of the best trainers I've ever had the pleasure to work with!Dec 30, 2014
I know Alex for couple years as a talented and skilled martial arts professional and also a great fitness instructor. Both self and my son are trained by him at Master Lee's Martial Arts Taekwondo school of Sterling,VA. We are very happy we met him so he explained and helped a lot to be well-trained and feel much better about many things. He always provides easy to follow techniques with related explanations, advises and hand-on demonstratoinons. Greatly recommended! Outstanding instructor/professional!Dec 29, 2014
Alex was my trainer in Sports and Health club where he introduced me to a more effective exercising program yielding awesome results. This year Alex helped me tremendously after I broke my ankle and needed help getting back to exercising. His vast knowledge of physical therapy helped me to start walking faster and safely. Alex patiently followed up with massage therapy, water procedures and customized exercises to gradually gain my strength back. He is versatile and flexible in coming up with a unique program taking into consideration physical health, time constraints and psychological readiness to push yourself further, but safely. I trust Alex with my health, and I am confident he will help you achieve your goals and feel better and stronger in body and mind.Aug 22, 2016
