Alexandra “Alex” Szajowski (suh-jow-ski)

Fitness has & always will be a huge part of Alexandra’s daily routine, career, & lifestyle. Growing up in Park Ridge, IL, she was given opportunities to try to succeed at every sport including soccer, softball, volleyball, swimming, track, gymnastics, dance (ballet pointe, tap, jazz, & modern), skiing/snowboarding, etc. She has played just about every sport competitively, minus basketball; unless you consider the occasional Knockout or H-O-R-S-E game as competition. Growing up healthy came easy as almost every day was spent outside climbing trees & running through sprinklers.

This fitness foundation set Alex up to pursue her undergrad at Illinois State University, only to graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science, & a Family & Consumer Sciences – Food, Nutrition, & Dietetics minor in May 2014. She spent extracurricular time as the President of Health Promotion & Wellness’ Student Wellness Ambassador Team, working for Recreation Aquatics, and participating in her sorority’s events. Prior to graduation, she spent 2 weeks abroad studying Physiotherapy & Kinesiology at the University of Opole, in Opole, Poland (FUN FACT: this is where Alexandra FIRST tried the sport of “CrossFit”); as well as Interning at USAA – Fitness & Recreation in Phoenix, Arizona for her final Semester. Most currently, she is studying for her American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) Certification exam.

Alex’s true love is helping the average person achieve greatness; whether that is through weight-loss or preventative health maintenance. She has worked primarily in the Corporate Wellness field for the majority of her short career; as well as a Level 1 Personal Trainer at Fitness Formula Clubs – Union Station. Although she will miss her 8 years of Lifeguarding through the Park Ridge Park District, she still remains true to her Pisces-self by teaching swim lessons from infants to adults at the local Park Ridge pools.

Currently, Alexandra is the General Manager & Wellness Coordinator for the LifeStart Wellness Network at the location. You can also find her coaching CrossFit Park Ridge’s BootFit, taking your Biometrics (body composition, circumference, etc.), or leading CrossFit class warm-ups. Being an active Member of the CrossFit Community since they opened their doors in July 2013 has been life-changing; CrossFit Park Ridge is her home-away-from-home & the Members are her second family. She loves the daily, challenging aspects CrossFit had brought to her already very active physical activity background & exercise routine. While she understands this sport may not be for everyone, some of her greatest accomplishments are introducing others to the wonderful world of CrossFit; & she hopes that you, too, will join our Community! If she’s not catching a WOD, you can find Alex on the lifting platforms, following her own Olympic Weightlifting programming, in hopes to compete in her first Olympic Weightlifting meet in early 2016. Please contact her at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Alexandra is always ready & willing to help you achieve your goals, no matter how significant or small. She is more than grateful & happy for the ongoing opportunity to help out the PRCF Community in any way she can! Want to know more about your general health & wellness? Ask Alex!
