Kevin Alexander


His ah-ha moment happened when he saw a photo of himself on his friend's Facebook—he was overweight, felt sluggish, and his blood pressure was steadily rising. So, he did what many people try to do—he started exercising to try to "out train" a poor diet.

Kevin quickly learned that if he was going to accomplish his fitness goals, it would have to be through a steady, healthy diet, complemented by hard work in the gym.

He started studying nutrition and got started cooking. In 2012 Kevin started a blog called "FitMenCook" to share his meals online in order to build a community around healthy food ideas. The message was simple: "Our bodies are built in the kitchen, Sculpted in the gym."

Kevin firmly believes that healthier food options do not have to be boring. Ever. In fact, they are pretty tasty. Fit (Wo)Men Cook is the "fit" story of all of us. It's taking your individual success stories and fitness and nutrition philosophies and sharing those ideas with the masses to grow and improve together. It's all about everyday people—no matter the fitness level or athletic ability—aiming to live the best life possible through fitness and healthy eating. Are you a Fit (Wo)Men Cook?
