My name is Alexander Juan Antonio Cortes. I am a personal trainer and writer. For the last 8 years, I have made health, fitness, and all subjects thereof my area of focus and study.
This website exists to ask a question:
Are you Healthy?
Is your lifestyle one you would admire, if you were a stranger observing yourself?
Or do you struggle to live life to the best of your capabilities? Time, sleep, exercise, nutrition, friends and family, all of these can be neglected.
None of these things can be left to chance. Life will wreck you if you don’t actively manage it.
I do not have “answers”. But I do have very good at asking questions. Ultimately, one else is going to help you but YOURSELF, so what is it YOU need to be doing.
This site is for YOU, and for your own Self-Development.
-exercise and implementation
-mental models and filters
-understanding your own biology, and taking action on it
My mission is to help you evolve consciously. I want you take control of your health.
Your health is your responsibility, not your family or friends. Society may be overweight and suffering from degenerative western disease, but YOU can choose otherwise.
Your mental health begins and ends in your own head. Your mind is where you are born, live, and die. Make it a good place to live.
You are as connected as you’ve ever been, but good friends and people are hard to come by. You’re wired in, and the digital environment floods you with connections, but few them really mean anything in your day to day life.
You don’t go out in the sun, you rarely engage with nature, and your hormones and health likely suffer for it.
There are better ways, and you’ve come to the right place to learn them.
If you are ready to begin learning, sign up for my email list. I email you 3x times a day, on near infinite subjects. If I think it can benefit your brain, mind, life, I will share it with you
