Alexis is truly a Pure Vibe success story. Despite being very active in her youth—everything from gymnastics, acrobatics, volleyball, soccer and snowboarding; devastating health problems in her early twenties drastically limited her ability to be active. Nutrition became a vital component throughout her recovery and drove her to become very passionate about healthy living. However she came to Pure Vibe looking for a way to regain the level of fitness she had enjoyed in her youth. Right from the start Alexis knew she had discovered something very special at Pure Vibe and recognized the incredible benefits of Whole Body Vibration Training. The transformative results she experienced at Pure Vibe inspired her to pursue further study into Exercise Physiology and she successfully obtained certification as a Group Fitness Instructor through the American Council of Exercise. Alexis could not be more thrilled to join the Pure Vibe Team and to have the opportunity to share her passion for Whole Body Vibration Training with all of you!
