“I’ve always loved exercising and playing sports. When I graduated from Arizona State University I was in marketing but wasn’t loving it.”
Born and raised in Arizona, USA, Alexia has always enjoyed exercising and playing sports since she was a child. However, she hadn’t considered a career in fitness in her youth.
She enrolled in Arizona State University to study marketing, but she didn’t enjoy her degree – finding herself more interested in working out in the gym.
It was at this point, when Alexia realized that she should pursue a career in the fitness industry.
Alexia’s participation in sports and training in the gym had resulted in her sculpting an aesthetic physique. Her friends realized that she had the potential to succeed as a model – Alexia saw her opportunity to enter the fitness industry, and took it.
After graduating from high school, she began auditioning for numerous commercials and fitness modelling shoots. It wasn’t long until she featured in marketing campaigns for big companies, gaining exposure in the industry.
In 2011, she left her day-job as a project manager at a digital marketing company – setting her focus on making a living as a fitness model.
Social Media Star

By 2016, Alexia had become an online sensation. She was the face of supplement brands, and had inspired fans around the world to lead a healthy lifestyle.
“My workouts are always different! I mix HIIT with traditional lifting with crossfit and make my own little Alexia workout. I use a lot of full body movements and I don’t try to lift as heavy as I can. Form is so important to me!”
Alexia aims to fit 6 workouts per week into her busy schedule as a fitness model. She enjoys mixing HIIT with traditional CrossFit, creating her own style of workouts.
But she doesn’t lift as heavy as she can – instead, focusing on full range of body movements and form.
” I never feel like I NEED to have a cheat meal. If I want something I eat it. It’s about moderation. But, I do have a weakness for french fries”
Alexia knows the importance of nutrition, and tries to keep her diet clean all-year-round. However, she encourages people to find healthy foods that they like, without restricting themselves to certain foods.
“Being happy is also SO IMPORTANT! Diets never work long term but what works is eating the right things for your body without feeling like you are restricted – so I guess I don’t really have cheat meals.”
