Build the Body You Want While Keeping Fitness Fun & Avoiding Plateaus Words by Alexander Fenton Irias, Crunch Group Fitness Coordinator. Edited by Eden Herbstman Everyone’s journey into fitness is personal and unique….and my story is no exception. Any moment or activity can spark inspiration, and mine began in a swimming pool. In 1993 I was living in Italy and training as a water polo player. One day, I noticed on the other side of the pool there was a Jazzercise class, which peaked my interest as something new and different. I started to take the Jazzercise classes more, and quickly added them to my fitness routine. One fateful day, the Jazzercise instructor didn’t show up to teach the class. As a joke I decided to lead the class…but this was the moment that started my path into fitness and athletic aerobics. I received my first Certification at 16 years old, and one year later I was teaching step classes. Gradually I entered the sport of competitive aerobics throughout European Capitals, and became globally recognized for my athleticism. Most of my competitions were featured on ESPN. My international awards and global status as an athlete started to gain attention in the United States, and soon I was invited to the U.S. to continue my fitness journey.
