A little about us: Alex- I love life and enjoy living it to its fullest! This mindset did not, however, come without adversity along the way. Growing up as an overweight child I was not exposed to the importance of eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle. After losing 40 lbs. and keeping it off for over 18 years, I have used my experiences as a catalyst for my own success and health. I look forward to sharing my knowledge with you as well! * Author, TV Fitness spokesperson and Fitness Columnist * 2006 IDEA International Fitness Director of the Year * 2006 BBB Large Business of the Year Award Winner * Nationally Certified Fitness Conditioning Specialist * Owner, ALX Fitness (in Vancouver) Jill- I too love life and am so thankful I get to spend mine with Alex. As an extremely active child/teen that excelled in athletics, I never had concerns about my health or weight. As I reached adulthood I allowed my responsibilities to dictate my time and became increasingly inactive. Over this past year I have been on my own journey and am pleased to say that I now live a healthy lifestyle. I'd love to share my experiences with you as you begin to live your best life! * 2000 BS in Psychology, University of Oregon * 2007 MA in Prof. School Counseling, George Fox University * 2007-current, High School Counselor (in Pdx) With Thanks, Alex and Jill McMillan
