As the youngest Coach at WSSC, Alexander Sandalis has always had a chip on his shoulder to prove himself. After nearly 100 hours of free work to prove his value and work ethic, he finally earned a job at WSSC.
Alexander got into the industry after moving away from competitive basketball after 6 months of competing in Tucson, Arizona, USA. Since his journey through basketball began at 15 years old, he has always possessed a deep curiosity for the human body and how to optimize it for performance. Shortly after he got back from America he began trying to build as much experience as he could by coaching for free (June, 2015).
Fast forward to today, he has completed a two diplomas, undergone an internship at NBL club Melbourne United learning under former head of Athletic Australia Eric Hollingsworth, completed his 200 hour yoga teacher training at iHana Yoga and is currently completing his Bachelor of Exercise and Sport Science.
But Alexander was a practitioner, (a coach), before he invested in university education in order to: 1. Determine whether he was skilled/talented enough in the field to be great at it and 2. Figure out if he actually wanted to pursue this field. To this date he has coached dozens of different clientele and athletes totaling over 500+ hours of coaching reps in 2.5 years.
When Christian is not posting low quality screenshots of his face Alexander also manages a lot WSSC’s media, filming and editing much of the content that is produced in an effort to grow WSSC’s brand and create a more professional impactful WSSC. He is the creator of Sandor Earl ‘The Return’ series and some of WSSC biggest videos.
