Frustrated Dieters: Are you ready for a sustainable approach that leads to PERMANENT weight loss?
If you've found this page, then chances are you've tried dieting before. In fact, I'd wager you've tried A LOT of different diets.
You may have seen some progress for a short time, but then your weight loss stalled and all the weight came back. Maybe even some extra too!
I bet you're also tired of getting your hopes up over the next fad diet, the one promising a miracle solution, only to be left wondering why the heck you spent two weeks snorting lines of black pepper every time you felt hungry.
The people I work with have been there before. (Maybe not snorting black pepper, ya weirdo.)
They come here discouraged at their seeming inability to lose the weight they've been struggling with for YEARS.
They come battered and broken, having been chewed up and spit out by the fitness industry's shady practices.
And then these people join my coaching program and everything changes.
Of course, most of my clients take the time to get to know me before they ever enroll. (But if what you said about black pepper is true, I already know you're going to be a good time.) I don't blame you. The last thing you want is another sly salesman selling you a dream house made of cards.
So take as much time as you need, my new friend. But I will share that we do some awesome things inside our program.
Not because of some miracle solution or gimmick, because we implement REAL change.
Individuals who join my flagship 12-week transformation program will:
✅ Reach their goals faster, losing 10+ pounds.
✅ Learn how to control their eating in ANY situation.
✅ Develop confidence in their body and in themselves.
✅ Receive a unprecedented level of support from their coach and fellow program members.
I'm personally invested in your success. Not because you put food on my table (although I get a weird sensation of irony whenever I buy donuts...), but rather because I personally struggled to lose weight.
For years I struggled to overcome my battle with obesity. I fell prey to every false promise and gimmick in the industry.
I wish I would have had a coach to show me the light and save me YEARS of struggling. How different could life had been if I had developed the confidence I have now a few years earlier?
Sadly, I didn't have someone like me back then. So I became that person. And now I'm here to show you the light.
What my program doesn't include:
❌ Fad diets or gimmicks - I'll teach you the truth about what you need for successful weight loss.
❌ Unrealistic food restrictions - I want you to live your life, the occasional guilt-free night out with friends or your significant other.
❌ A "set it and forget it" coaching approach - I support you the whole way, whenever you need me.
Since losing over 80lbs, I have dedicated myself to teaching people the right way to do things.
I even got a degree in motivational psychology, from one of the most prestigious universities in the country, so that I could better help my clients adopt real lifestyle changes.
I do want to disclose one thing about my transformation program: there is no going back.
Like Neo in "The Matrix," once you take the red pill you can't unsee what you've learned.
--> You'll never look at food or nutrition the same way.
--> You'll develop a mindset that will change how you see yourself.
--> You won't EVER be able to fall back into the old habits you've adopted.
So if you're really not completely done stuffing your face with an entire pint of ice cream and eating oreos by the sleeve, this program might not be for you.
If you're not done coasting in your comfort zone because it's where you feel comfortable, then you might not be ready to have the truth unveiled.
But if you're sick and tired of lying awake at night longing for something more out of your life, longing to stop hating what you see looking back at you in the mirror, then buckle up. Things might not get snorting-black-pepper-crazy, but this journey is going to get WILD.
Hear for yourself what our clients have to say about their coaching experience:
Begin learning how to adopt healthy habits and balance the demands of your new lifestyle. Start with small changes that pack a mean punch, and continue building until these behaviors become second-nature.
Healthy habits become an established part of your routine. Exercise and mindful eating become automatic behaviors, and you learn how to use these skills to enjoy more difficult environments like parties, traveling, and other life events. You've learned how to enjoy yourself without forfeiting your performance or body composition goals. The future is bright!
Available to clients who want to continue after their initial 12-week commitment. You work with your coach to set new performance or body composition goals. Your coach will stay with you to help minimize your time investment in the gym and the kitchen to ensure every step you take makes the biggest impact.
*Savings based on a 52-week commitment.

I'm writing this letter to share my story of how I got involved in fitness coaching and the immense benefits it's provided for me.
College is already tough, but add in a condition that gives you brutal, long-lasting headaches, blurry vision, and pain every time you workout and it'll get even tougher. After all of junior year battling the symptoms without a known cause, the June before my senior year brought answers. However, I still felt helpless; my doctor said the best shot at healing and eradicating my Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension, or IIH, was to take medication and lose weight. Not to mention, the medication would only make my headaches, dizziness, and vision worse in the meantime. Every time I went to the gym, tried to lift weights, or completed cardio, my head would throb. I ate well, but alone, it was clearly not enough to lose weight.
After battling this on my own senior year, I realized that what I was doing wasn't going to cut it. I was weaned off the medication, but my IIH only got worse. That's when I knew I needed the help of not just a doctor, but also a fitness professional. I'd seen Alex speak at an event for a club for weightlifters I was in at the University of Michigan that past winter. I remembered being impressed with his fitness knowledge and his approachability. I sent him an email and we began a discussion: my history with fitness (specifically, weightlifting), my condition, my goals, my busy schedule. I was so pleased when I learned that he had done research on my condition and had found the best fitness moves to do (and to avoid), as well as the foods that would exacerbate my symptoms. While I was ready for change, he was the one ready to guide me through it.
We spent a few months doing both in-person and online training while I was still living in Ann Arbor. I'd lost a solid 20 pounds that summer and was excited to keep pushing. While it was time to leave my college town and start my professional career teaching high school on the opposite side of the state, I was able to keep Alex in my pocket. Our phones became our communication, thanks to the online training, weekly emails, and frequent texts. By mid-September, I was already cleared of IIH by my doctor! This was a celebration, but I wasn't done yet. While I transitioned into the workforce and life after college, Alex helped me retain my fitness regimen and encouraged me to stay on track with my thoughtful eating.
I'm now a stronger (both physically and mentally) person, and I realize that I'm capable of doing amazing things with my body. I'm looking forward to continuing to build a healthier, more active, IIH-free life!
If you're debating whether this is for you, or whether it's the right time, I say go for it! In a few months from now it very well may be the best decision of your life.
One year ago, I was working 50+ hours a week and did nothing to take care of my health. I wasn’t inspired to exercise, make time for the gym, or really do anything for my health. I could feel the difference in how I felt on a day-to-day basis. The change began through my manager and colleague Revathy. She introduced me to Alex and A-Team Fitness.
The first class was tough. It was an eye opener to me how out of shape I had become. Even though it was difficult, Alex and the other members gave me the boost and encouragement I needed to get through that class and many more since. I actually enjoy and look forward to exercise now. Who in the world thinks they’ll ever enjoy exercise? It’s like magic.
Another thing I thought was pretty cool about my first six months is when Alex pulled me aside and privately challenged me to reach my 20lbs weight loss goal in 4 months. Trust me, it wasn’t easy at all. Alex believed in me and stood by me the entire way, holding me accountable everyday during that challenge. At the end of the four months, I had succeeded and was down to 203lbs from 223lbs!
My journey did not stop there. I saw that Alex was running a free intermittent fasting challenge online. I enrolled and it was mind-blowing. The challenge changed the way I was eating—even the way I thought about food. Through this challenge and Alex’s coaching, I was given control over another piece of the puzzle—my nutrition.
Loving exercise and controlling my eating, you’d think I’d have nothing else to accomplish—and you’d be wrong! After all of these accomplishments I worked up the courage to give running a try. Running is something I NEVER imagined myself doing. I joined Alex’s free running group and am now able to run two miles without stopping. I was even motivated to run the Turkey Trot 5K the morning of Thanksgiving. Who have I become?!
My strength training, improved nutrition, and new running abilities have ultimately helped me achieve one of my biggest passions—competing in table tennis. Throughout this journey I have clearly seen my table tennis skills improve, which has led me to placing in multiple tournaments against more advanced players.
I have never seen Alex give anything less than 100%. His positivity and unstoppable energy, in and out of the gym, is inspiring and infectious to anyone around him. Through my experiences with him I have learned that anything is possible if you BELIEVE, work consistently, and are willing to make the necessary changes.
I was so excited when I earned my A-Team shirt, because it is a reflection of the promises I made to myself. The promise to take care of my health and pursue the things I am passionate about have brought me to where I am today, and I thank Alex and the A-Team for supporting me through it all. I plan to continue forever with Alex McBrairty and A-Team Fitness.
I wanted to share my story for all my friends who struggle with high blood pressure. I have been on a low dose of medication for several years. This had kept my blood pressure under control until early this year, when my readings started creeping up. My doctor doubled the dosage. I experienced some unpleasant side effects but little change in the numbers. I tried losing some weight and reducing sodium with little result. I had been working out regularly including some cardio, but my cardio didn't seem to be working.
I changed to a technique called High Intensity Interval training, which my trainer Alex McBrairty had taught me for weight loss. It involves alternating sprinting and walking on a treadmill for alternating 1-minute intervals for a half hour. I do this 4x a week. Within a few days, my blood pressure started to come down. 8 weeks later, both my top and bottom numbers are consistently down an average of 20 points even though I'm back to the minimal dose of medicine.
I had a doctor appointment this morning this morning. When I showed by doctor my daily readings, which I chart, she could hardly believe the improvement. I am sharing this because I think so many people could benefit from any cardio exercise but especially the High Intensity Internal Training. Go A-Team Fitness!
My journey with A-Team Fitness began when my friend saw a flyer on my apartment entrance about an exercise class. I completely ignored it as I have been a high energy person ( thanks to my family genes) and thought I didn’t need any more fitness training. I reluctantly went to the class because my friend kept insisting we try it. I never thought in my life that I would complete 3 years with my trainer as of today.
Alex was not what I was expecting. His energy and empathy with people actually made me to continue even though I couldn’t sit for 3 days after the initial class.
I still remember when I couldn’t bend and touch my toes because of my lack in flexibility. This began to change gradually and I continued because I started seeing changes physically and mentally. Right now, after 3 years, my energy levels are comparable to both men and women who are at least 12 to 17 years younger than me.
In addition to Alex, I am also thankful to others members in the group who made the class fun and inspirational.
I will continue with Alex and A-Team Fitness until one of us moves away.
"You make an impact far greater than slimmer waists and lifting heavy things. Anyone can achieve success, but to live a life of significance is so much harder to find. What you do is a life of significance."
"I really don't think I can fully express my gratitude and appreciation for the group you've setup. Your encouragement, and the topics you present, have been so helpful to me. I appreciate the time and effort you put into helping your community learn and grow."
"Your emails really help me. It's so easy to get wrapped up in this big world and think you aren't conquering anything. I appreciate the tips and tricks, and always your super positive emails, that really get my week off to a great start!"
"I have experienced a significant loss of weight, and my daily energy and physical well being have increased beyond my imagination. Each step of the way Alex told me I could, showed me how (even when I didn't always listen the first time), and stood by me while I did it."
"I wish I lived closer to Ann Arbor. You were my best trainer and great at encouraging me, so I kept going."
"Alex is passionate about fitness and it shows in the energy and enthusiasm he brings to every session. Each workout is challenging, creative and most importantly, fun! If you are serious about changing your life for the better, Alex will lead you every step of the way."
"If you listen to him and do the things he says, it works! Alex makes working out a lot of fun, and he constantly challenges me to do more than I even thought I could. He truly loves what he does and has so much knowledge to share."
"I am down 33 lbs after four months of simply working the plan that he creates for me month after month. I had a big goal of dropping 70-80lbs and I feel extremely confident with Alex by my side that I will accomplish this with him before the start of summer!"
"Alex was very easy to work with. He was flexible (both in scheduling and adapting to changing goals) and has a way of motivating you that doesn't come off as condescending or over-the-top. He answered all my questions, and was very willing to offer helpful suggestions."
“Alex is a great and inspirational trainer! He challenges you in every workout, gives good guidance for better eating habits, and helps you achieve goals you never thought were possible!”
"Alex is very supportive. He provides excellent motivation and accountability. When he encounters something positive from his clients and followers, he goes out of his way to share his appreciation. He really strives to connect on a personal level."
“He uses positive reinforcement and an infectious enthusiasm to keep his clients on track both at the gym and away. It’s been his confidence in me that has reminded me of my own potential."
Frequently Asked Questions

Safety is our number one priority. We pride ourselves in our ability to properly evaluate each client to understand where you are and the best starting point for you. Every exercise we select is chosen with you in mind. We specialize in providing programs that our clients can confidently perform on their own.
Many of our clients prefer to use their local gym. However, due to the pandemic we have plenty of clients who prefer home workouts. We generally encourage you have at least a set of resistance bands for home use, but it is not a requirement. (We can also provide recommendations.) We will design your workouts based on the equipment you have access to. You can still see great results without a ton of equipment.
Yes. In general, you will recieve completely new workouts every four weeks.
That is the beauty of online coaching! When you get setup, you and your coach will decide on a good workout schedule for you. This will help your coach add workouts to your portal calendar. However, if something comes up you are more than welcome to complete your workout at a different day or time.
When you enroll, we collect a series of movement assessments during the start-up process. These assessments allow us to evaluate if you have any existing muscle imbalances. This data, along with the information we collect about your goals and your current lifestyle, determines the structure and exercise selection of your workouts.
If you have trouble performing any exercise in your workout, simply reach out to your coach. They will ask questions to determine whether it's a form issue or if another exercise needs to be subsituted. You also have the capability to film a set of any given exercise and submit the video to your coach for more specific feedback on technique.
This is a very involved program. You will likely communicate with your coach in some capacity every day. (i.e. email, text, social media message, etc.)
Anytime! Seriously, reach out to your coach anytime you need them. They will generally get back to you as soon as possible. However, as a courtesy, expect some delay when contacting outside of normal business hours. (Before 8am and after 6pm on weekdays, and on weekends.)
We don't believe in fad diets or nutrition gimmicks. The advice we give is scientifically proven to work. This program will teach you how to track your eating via a food log, and we will work to help you gradually make changes over the course of the program.
While we do use some outside software as part of our coaching program (i.e MyFitnessPal, Facebook Groups, etc.), none of the software we use requires you to make an additional purchase.
As part of your program you will complete weekly video calls with your coach. These calls last approximately twenty mintues, and are completed using either Facetime or Zoom. You can easily schedule your calls when it's most convenient for your schedule via our online booking software.
