B.A. Intergrated Communications (2017)
"Your only limit is yourself." That is the mantra that Alexander Tovar lives by on a daily basis. Alexander is a recent alum who majored in integrated communications. Something very admirable about him is that he recently lost 110 pounds. He strives to encourage others not to give up on their end goal, just because it did not work out the first few times. He is active in a multitude of activities at the rec including, flag football, table tennis, but his favorite activity is soccer. Alexander’s first impression of the rec was that it was intimidating. He felt it was difficult to workout surrounded by fit people. However, he later realized through his health journey, that himself and others have the same goal in mind: to improve. His favorite part about working out is the beginning and end. The pre-workout walk and the cool-down walk. He loves the excitement of getting his workout started and the satisfaction of unwinding with a walk after a great workout. Some interesting facts about Mr. Tovar are that he was the Vice President of The American Marketing Association, and he uses his brand apparel, Third Ward Athletic, as a soccer team in the rec intramural sports. Alexander stays motivated by his past. Knowing what he has experienced before pushes him to continue his weight loss journey.
