Head Coach, Singapore

After several years in the Singapore Armed Forces, Alex decided to take a step out of his comfort zone and into the world of fitness. He moved to Seattle, Washington, where he further developed his coaching skills and business acumen.

He moved back to Singapore in 2010 and upon realization of a gap in the market, he sought to create a welcoming and accessible training space with the highest standards of personal training: hence Level was founded.

As an OPEX Coach, Alex specialises in working with clients who are focused on longevity and quality of life. He also works with many rehab patients.

As the Head Coach of Level, he is also heavily involved in furthering education and the upkeep of standards of the coaches at Level.

Testimonials for Alex Salihin

“I have complete confidence in Alex’s programme and I can’t recommend him highly enough.”

 Alex has been directing my path to recovery after major knee reconstructive surgery. He is respectful of the concurrent physiotherapy programme but is pushing me safely and appropriately through my comfort levels to a faster and more complete recovery. He has demonstrated enormous understanding of my body mechanics and my general mobility and fitness have improved enormously under his guidance. He is thoughtful and expert in his field.

“Alex built up my core, upper and lower body strength and I have regained nearly all of the functionality I lost in the accident.”

 I started training with Alex six months ago as part of my recovery from a serious motorcycle accident. Alex developed a fitness program that was tailored to my specific needs and worked diligently with me to help achieve my personal recovery goals. The results have been phenomenal. We built up my core, upper and lower body strength and have regained nearly all of the functionality I lost in the accident. Thanks to Alex I feel stronger and in better condition now than I have ever felt in my life I highly recommend him.

“2 years on, I am executing cleans and snatches, sprinting, climbing ropes, like I was born fit.” 

At my first session with Alex, we had to stop before the hour as I lay my head on the floor and resigned that the fit life was not for me. 2 years on I am executing cleans and snatches, sprinting, climbing ropes, like I was born fit. All credit goes to Alex’s incredible coaching. Level is also the only gym I’ve been to which smells good – it actually smells great, like a spa. It’s amazing.

– Jasmine Chan


“It has truly been a pleasure to workout with Level and Alex in particular.” 

I had approached Alex with severe lower back and neck problems. Over a 3 month period, Alex worked closely with my condition to develop a bespoke training and strengthening program to suit my needs. In 3 months, I was able to begin a regular running and weight lifting schedule with no pain. He also advised on a regular training plan which I could use in any gym (including while travelling) to ensure my back problems do not recur. 

I would strongly recommend Level to anyone with injuries or someone who needs an experienced trainer with physiotherapist experience.
