ALEXANDER SEIJI GRAHAM
Alexander was born and raised in the city of London through his British father and Japanese mother. He always pursued with great passion his love for sports and physical activity where he graduated from the World Number 1 University for sports related subjects; Loughborough University, having studied within the field of Sports, Exercise and Health Science.
He further gained extra qualification as a Fitness Instructor and Sports Massage Therapist through separate diplomas and has contributed to the success of numerous professional athletes as well as working with and positively impacting the lives of members of the general population.
Having gained much knowledge and experience during his time in the UK, including managing Japanese athletes during the London 2012 Olympic Games, he came to Kyoto, Japan in 2016 and chose to use his Japanese name, ‘Seiji’ towards his very first private fitness studio, known as 'SEIJI STUDIOS.'
For the first time, through SEIJI STUDIOS, Alexander has been able to fully express and develop his own ideas and skills towards general health, exercise and the fitness industry. During his time in the UK, he noticed a trend with his personal training clients who had areas of overactive and tight muscles which needed maintenance. At the same time, his massage therapy clients had areas of weakness and muscular inactivity that needed strengthening. Why not have an approach which deals with this imbalance in one go? Probing into this question has led to the development of the SEIJI METHOD.
The first step in the fitness journey began at the world renowned Loughborough University. Much of the work which Alexander continues to produce is based on his scientific background, contributing towards the delivery of content with more accuracy and confidence.
'For me, it's all about how best to enjoy life.
Good physical health, I believe is the fundamental key component in making this happen.
I want to teach my approach and in my own way contribute towards making society a healthier and more positive place; a place where individuals can move, feel and look better in their own skin.'
