What is SparX?

SparXSM is a holistic fitness training program that combines mindfulness and ancient traditional martial arts concepts to help people of all fitness levels achieve a balance between physical and mental health.

Through an intense physical regimen involving dynamic tension exercises and specific breathing techniques, you will develop awareness and control of your power, energy, explosiveness and motivation. The mindfulness component reduces the impact of fear, stress, pressure, anger and other negative emotions, redirecting that energy towards positive outcomes. You’ll feel more comfortable with your inner self, building confidence and projecting outward strength.

SparX gives you that extra edge, resilience and grit to push harder, dig deeper and feel better by syncing together your body and mind to unleash that primal force of nature that exists deep within each of us.

Recent Customer Reviews

I’m a 54 year-old engineer with a busy schedule and signed up for Alex’s 2-week online SparX fitness course – I loved it! He worked out for the entire 60-minute session while effortlessly delivering a thoughtful combination of helpful instruction and visualization techniques that helped me receive maximum physical and mental benefit from the workout. Since participating, I have augmented my regular exercise regime to include some of the many gems I was able to take away from the sessions. If you are looking to change how you approach exercise, I recommend that you sign up for any upcoming opportunity with Alex – you’ll be happy you did

As someone new to these concepts and techniques, I enjoyed that SparX is designed so that all ability levels can access the class material and fully participate. Alex provides clear instruction, with positive encouragement and a growth mindset, that I appreciate. SparX blends mental and physical wellness, which I believe with continued practice will help my overall well-being.
