My name is Alexander Juan Antonio Cortes. I am a writer, dancer, personal trainer, and storyteller. I have an obsession with the art and science of self-actualization. I believe that everything can be trained, and that anyone can change their life for the better.​

What My Students Have to Say

When I discovered you I was a skinny distance runner. Through your programming and email list I learned how to build muscle in and out of the gym (through nutrition), stay injury free while doing it, and enhance my overall well-being.

Thanks to you, I lost 50 pounds in 6 months—from 245 to 195 pounds. Still working as hard as I can to unfat myself and gain muscle. Thanks so much again for all the help you’ve been. I know I haven’t hit you up before so you wouldn’t know, but you are my go-to source for all things health related at this point.

I've trained hard with the 5x5 program in the past, got stronger but never really looked like I lifted. Then switched to the Achilles program and began doing 16:8 intermittent fasting in October. And look!

I had been obese for almost 20 years. After buying the Achilles Program, I looked it over and decided to start doing basic lifting. This program blew me away and Ive kept it going ever since.
