Hello, my name is Damir Olde. I’m a fitness enthusiast and the creator of Alpha Company Training. My passion for fitness began in my first year of university when I was searching for a sport I could do on my own (I had previously been an avid soccer fan). I found the idea of resistance training pretty fascinating and it stuck with me ever since.
I have always been intrigued by all things military from a very young age. As a kid, I developed a strong interest in ancient Greco-Roman and medieval military history, which I also ended up studying in university. Alpha Company Training is the culmination of a passion for fitness, a university degree in history and a college business diploma. I am certified as a personal trainer with the International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) since 2014 and I have been learning about resistance training (aka. “lifting weights”) since 2005.
