about me

Meet Aleks Pavlovic
Your Dedicated Personal Trainer in San Francisco

While working in cardiovascular research at Stanford for 10+ years, I discovered that most heart patients are advised to exercise and eat better, but few of them followed through on that advice. These patients had good intentions but lacked the personalized guidance needed to implement healthier habits. They needed a plan, accountability, and someone to guide and support them.

Several years ago, I discovered CrossFit and weightlifting. I loved the intensity of the workouts, and my strength and confidence began to grow. I didn’t initially love working out, but over time exercising became something I wanted to do rather than something I had to do. A good focused training session became a form of meditation that helped me manage anxiety.

Founding AP Wellness and Consulting allowed me to combine my passion for fitness and my desire to help people develop healthier habits. As a personal trainer, I try to hone in on each individual’s unique motivators to curate customized workouts. It’s always a joy watching clients master a move, overcome self-doubt, and reach their goals. I also incorporate my background in research, basing my recommendations on current data and science. If you are ready to take control of your health, contact me today!
