In this week’s episode of Healthspan Academy, I chatted with CrossFit Games veteran Alex Vigneault. Alex talked about his recipe for success on the field, while balancing being a full-time police officer and father. We chatted about his programming, including improving weaknesses, accessory and mobility work. Alex talked about his approach to finding optimal nutrition to fuel his workout, as well as his mental approach to competitions.
Alex Vigneault is a former hockey player with a passion for sports. While studying as a police officer, the five-time individual CrossFit Games athlete from Quebec started his CrossFit journey in 2013 and made his first regional appearance in 2014 at the Canada East Regional. He made his Games debut in 2015 with an 11th-place finish. He qualified again for the Games in 2016, 2019, and 2021 with two top-ten finishes. He also qualified for this year’s CrossFit Games via a 4th place finish at the Atlas Games.
