When I first starting coming to the Fitness Coliseum, my husband and I were just exploring the idea of "working out." Both of us were overweight, but neither one of us realized how much we were "out of shape." I attended Alec's sessions for a year, but never realized how strong I could become until I started to listen to his nutrition suggestions, and to allow myself to really "feel the burn!" From that point on, my body, mind, and soul completely transformed. It's not all about losing weight, it is also about believing in your own power to take control of your life. That is Alec's strongest gift to his clients!! He is able to envision your strengths, and has the patience to believe in you until YOU can see those strengths within yourself. Thank you Coach!

Fitness Coliseum provides a great workout and great atmosphere. I have been weight training consistently for the last 12 years and was under the assumption that I was in great shape until Alec introduced me to his new style of full body/core workouts. The workouts are intense, motivating, and constantly changing; this style is far from the mundane workout routines that I and most consistent gym goers get use to and provides a new challenge every time you step into the coliseum. Alec’s style of training is individualized to your fitness level and your personal fitness wants/goals and you can tell he is really into helping you succeed. I would recommend Alec and his training style to anyone who wants to know what it’s really like to be in great all around physical condition.

I decided that after years of walking and trying to maintain an ideal weight, I was not getting the result I desired. I joined Fitness Coliseum in the fall of 2012 because I wanted to be healthier, gain strength, and improve my balance. I had never joined a "health or fitness club" before so I did not know what to expect. The only word that comes to mind now five months later after joining the Fitness Coliseum is WOW! I cannot believe that I did not join Fitness Coliseum before 2012. Carla and Alec are fantastic!!! No two workout sessions are the same and their level of professionalism, knowledge, and encouragement is off the chart! Not only have I lost inches and weight, my strength and balance have improved by 100%! I highly recommend individuals to consider membership with Fitness Coliseum--you will not regret it!!!!
I started comng to Fitness Coliseum after years of not being in shape for a few years. I started out coming to the Bootcamps, and truly started to see a difference in only a few weeks. Working with Alec truly changed how I felt about myself and fitness overall. Alec made it easy to understand how to live a fit and healthy lifestyle. After working out for several months I accepted a job out of state and moved away. When I decided to move back to Michigan, the first thing I did was set up a meeting with Alec to start one on one training. I have worked with him since last June and have to say that I am in the best shape of my life and have completely changed my lifestyle. Alec promotes an environment where you don't feel embarassed and can feel comfortable. I highly recommend if you are looking to change your life physically, mentally, and spirtually give Fitness Coliseum a shot!
I reluctantly began personal training with Carla Rosser at Fitness Coliseum a few months ago. I was not excited about this adventure but realized the rest of my life would be more enjoyable if I could increase my flexibility and stamina. Years of not exercising paired with decades of sitting at desk jobs presented a challenge for us both. Carla has been consistently encouraging, supportive and patient and she is never condescending. The diverse equipment at Fitness Coliseum allows Carla to vary our routine, keeping me focused, interested and helping me counter years of inactivity. My progress has been steady and evident and with increased personal commitment will definitely alter my future.
I love Fitness Coliseum! I had hip replacement and Alec has helped me to strengthen my weak muscles in that leg and it is getting stronger every day. I have learned so much about working out and feel so much better...he listens to you and really has helped me with whatever I seem to be struggling with. I truly look forward to going there every week. I feel the personal attention you receive at Fitness Coliseum makes all the difference and they make it fun!
Best facility I have ever been to! I have trained with both Alec and Carla, they have very different techniques but both are excellent! I first came here because I wanted to be a part of an NPC Bikini competition. I trained with Alec for 12 weeks, 5 days a week. Having one on one training with state of the art equipment was only the beginning, the workouts where hard, but I was having so much fun doing it! Whether you are training for competition or just to improve your overall health, you will see results with Fitness Coliseum!
I can't begin to explain how grateful I am to Alec and his amazing form of fitness training. I began training 15 weeks ago and the pain in my hip, back, and shoulder has all but disappeared. The workouts are intense but fun and never ever boring. The facility is state of the art and spotlessly clean. I'm addicted, seriously! Thank you so much

Alec excels at being a personal trainer because he is:
- Knowledgeable- Alec has a solid foundation in the science of physical fitness.
- Creative- You never do the same thing twice!
- Energetic- He’s always enthusiastic and smiling.
- Fun- I always leave the Fitness Coliseum feeling better than when I entered.
Alec’s personal training credentials are stellar, but that’s not why I’m a client of the Fitness Coliseum. Alec has created an environment that is welcoming to people of all ages and fitness levels. It is quickly evident that he cares deeply about the people he works with. I am (or perhaps I should say was) an out of shape, overweight, woman in her 50’s. Each session with Alec is a step towards better fitness, improved health, and a happier life. Alec encourages, supports, and roots for his clients’ success. He is much more than a personal trainer. He is a “cheerleader”, a “life coach”, a friend!
Seeing no results from Curves for several years, I was excited to try something new when Alec opened Fitness Coliseum within a couple of miles from our home. I was impressed with the atmosphere; always clean, well lit, with a large selection of state of the art equipment.
Alec has a warm, friendly, professional personality that makes you feel comfortable during our one-on-one training. Each session is well thought out, always different, using a variety of techniques, creating a well balanced workout.
As a 50+ year old woman, I now have better balance, stronger core, tone, and stamina, as well as, the loss of weight and inches!

I made a New Year’s resolution to get back in shape and eat healthier. This is always a challenge because I am a mom and work full time. Trying to fit the gym into a busy schedule is hard and I found excuses to skip working out. I decided to check into personal training at the Fitness Coliseum and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. From the initial tour, I was impressed with the equipment, the facility and the knowledge of the trainers. I have been training with Carla Rosser for several weeks and at first, it was hard work and very challenging. Carla pushes me to be better, stronger and faster; every week I see progress and results! The customized training sessions are challenging, but fun and I have never had the same work out. There is no way you will get bored! After my training sessions, I feel amazing and suddenly I am excited to go to the gym. Carla is an excellent trainer and I highly recommend the training at the Fitness Coliseum!!!! The atmosphere is fun and relaxed, but the training is serious!
I joined Fitness Coliseum as another way to workout and be social, but soon realized that this experience was going to be transforming. I struggled, complained, persisted, laughed and celebrated as I became a healthier, happier me. Alec is “Coach”. He has reshaped my attitude about fitness, given me confidence, and has encouraged me along my health journey. He has created an environment that is relaxed and comfortable, and that allows me to take risks. He has held me accountable and gives me the reassurance I need to continue my goal of personal health and wellness. Alec and the Fitness Coliseum embody change. If you are looking for a life experience that moves you forward, this is it.
Knowing I wanted to feel my best for my son's wedding, I quickly signed up at Fitness Coliseum with personal trainer, Carla Rosser. She is totally committed to providing each of her clients with the best possible workout. I gained a confidence and an inner and outer strength that I never thought possible.
The facility is spacious, extremely clean, and has state of the art equipment. I love that each workout is totally new and challenges me to reach new levels. Thank you, Carla and Alec for helping me to feel wonderful on my son's special day; but more importantly helping me to having greater health each and every day.
Fitness Coliseum has excellent, new equipment and a non-intimidating environment to workout. Carla and Alec are experienced, professional and they really help motivate you. With Carla's encouragement and knowledge she has helped me lose weight, inches and gain muscle mass. I am stronger, fitter and doing things I haven't been able to do since my 20's. With Carlas's help I have learned to enjoy exercising and incorporate it into my daily life!

Fitness Coliseum is a great facility with great trainers. Workouts are tailored to your fitness level and are challenging but do-able. I've been working out there with Carla since April, and am seeing real progress! This is not your typical gym. The trainers keep it interesting and fun.
Working out at the Fitness Coliseum these last two years has been like no workout experience I’ve ever had! It’s fun, it's state of the art, it’s challenging, and its different every time. Being a new Mom I definitely have a “why” I need to work out, but the Fitness Coliseum turns that “why” into my “will”…the will to get out of bed at the crack of dawn, the will to come and give it my all, and the will to live a healthier life! Thanks Fitness Coliseum, for finally making working out something I want to do!!
I have been going to the Fitness Coliseum for over a year. I was having some serious back issues and needed to strengthen my core. One year later I have seen a significant improvement in my range of motion and strength. One of the best qualities about Alec is his ability to incorporated a variety of exercises. The workouts are always new and fresh, very rarely do we repeat a workout.
