Alan was born and raised in San Francisco, and ever since he was little he was always the "fat kid". At his heaviest he weighed 350lbs, was fat, miserable, and near death. That’s when he decided to change his life for good. Alan found boxing at 3rd Street and his martial arts and fitness journey began! He lost 160lbs and started to compete in amateur boxing. After learning the basics, he decided to start teaching what he knew to others. He furthered his martial arts quest by learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Today Alan is a blue belt under Ralph Gracie and Kurt Osiander and has learned some Muay Thai and Wrestling as well. His training and fitness philosophy is that you have to enjoy your workouts and there should always be a hunger for knowledge!
As head trainer at 3rd Street, in addition to teaching Classes, Alan heads up the “Academy” program for those who want to focus on boxing technique and sparring. He also does private 1-on-1 training, so hit him up!
