Dissecting the Habits for Reaching Elite Fitness with CrossFit Games Athlete Alex Gazan

In this week’s episode of Healthspan Academy I caught up with CrossFit Games competitor, Alex Gazan. I asked Alex about how she got started in the sport and her road to qualifying for the CrossFit Games. We chatted about her programming, recovery, and nutrition strategy. We also talked about her team of workout partners and coaches and the dynamics that have helped her reach a truly elite level of fitness. 

Alex Gazan is a CrossFit Games athlete based in Las Vegas, Nevada who has been competing in the Games since 2018. Alex has grown while under the coaching of Justin Cotler and the Underdogs Athletics. Her best lifts are at a 240lb clean and jerk in a 375lb deadlift and she’s just coming off a fourth-place finish at the Granite Games.
