I am a Certified Personal Trainer and the owner of Cardenas Complete Training.

I am a NASM Certified Personal Trainer with a Bachelors in Kinesiology from the University of Iowa. My other certifications include nutrition, strength and conditioning and speed and agility.

I have spent the last 10 years learning new techniques and skills to give my clients the absolute best possible experience. Health and fitness to me isn't just looking and feeling strong but being mentally healthy and confident as well.

I know how intimidating a gym or starting to work out can be but I am here to help you through that process. I will will be with you step by step on the start of your fitness journey. Weather you are just starting out or are a avid gym goer we can help you achieve your health and fitness goals.

My passion for health and fitness comes from a lifelong obsession with sports. From a young age I was always interested in how the body moves and how it is capable of doing the things the body does. I love what I do because of my clients. 

If you are ready to get started and start making a change in your life we are here to help. Although it may not always be easy and you may face a few hurdles but we are here to help you every step of the way. You will not only look good but you will also feel better, happier, and more confident. All you have to do is take that first step on the journey to your new life.

I have been working with Alex for a month now and I am enjoying every second of it. He is prompt, professional, and fun to work with. After a few weeks I increased my workout frequency to three times a week because I was enjoying it so much. Results are quick and I can’t wait to continue making progress over the next several months. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a personal trainer


I met Alex and I asked if he was willing to take me on because I'm very stubborn and he agreed so 3 days a week at 6 am I would come to the gym and he did great assessments. He also did great modifications for the level of stamina, balance, coordination, correct form, safety and a healthy history. He is an amazing trainer. I highly recommend Alex as a trainer for any type of body type, body issues and giving you the drive to succeed. There are non scale victories and scale victories. Everybody's body is different. For me in 16 weeks I lost 12 pounds. All l I did was see Alex 3 days a week for an hour. I made no other adjustments to my lifestyle yet.


Alex is the best!! I have been working with Alex for a few months now and have seen more results than I have in years of training on my own. In our first session, Alex worked with me to set attainable goals and developed a training plan to help me meet those. He is also very responsive to feedback! If you have physical or training goals in mind or don’t even know where to start, I highly recommend Cardenas Complete Training.
