Hi, I'm Aaron Alexander, manual therapist and movement coach, and I'm here to optimize your life through aligning your mind, body and movement. Each Monday, I'm joined by world-renowned health experts, discussing the most pressing topics in the world of wellness. And each Thursday, I provide you with my person expertise on aligning your life. This podcast always takes a holistic approach to all things health, explores topics from unique view points, and provides you with actionable tips and tangible takeaways. I would love for you to connect with me on Instagram, @alignpodcast.
I'm a former physicist, a lifelong runner, and (most of all, these days) a science journalist. In the pages of Runner's World, my "Fast Lane" column focuses on training for peak performance -- workouts, racing strategies, and other battle-tested tips to bring down your PRs.
You can read more about my background at my personal website if you're interested. In brief, I started my career as a physicist doing postdoctoral research with the National Security Agency, and competed as a national-class runner for Canada for a decade. In my late 20s, I switched from scientist to science journalist; since then, I've won a National Magazine Award and my writing has appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, Outside, Popular Mechanics (where I'm a contributing editor), Men's Journal, Bicycling, and elsewhere. You can read some examples of my work here.
