MEET COACH ALEX
Extremely passionate about the development of young athletes, Alex dedicates his time now to helping Canadian athletes achieve their athletic goals. Whether it is Div1, Usports, or success at the High School level. Being involved with SMART PERFORMANCE will help you maximize that athletic journey.
Alex has been instrumental in assisting 5 Albertans play Division 1 football, 2 of those young men now playing in the NFL, Amen Ogbongbemiga and Chuba Hubbard. The others are Albert Reese, (Mississippi State) Cole Snyder, (Delaware) and Ebenezer Bedada (Murray State).
Coach Alex has mentored over 20+ athletes on their journey to the next level by working closely, forming a relationship, and mentoring each and every athlete that walks through his door.About Smart Peformance Training
"Alex Ogbongbemiga is a former athlete of mine during my tenure at the University of Calgary. Being of Nigerian heritage, Alex is the product of a loving homelife, but also has experienced first-hand the struggles of an immigrant family starting life in a new country. A situation where increased responsibility was normal and that “real-life” consequences were the result of successes and failures. As an athlete Alex learned first-hand the opportunities football could provide.
He learned that every decision would impact his path, and that life was not always fair, in that sometimes he just had to overcome more than most. This realization allowed Alex to graduate from the University of Calgary and play football professionally in the Canadian Football League.
Now Alex is ready to pass on his experience to those individuals who are also motivated toward life successes. As a mentor, he without doubt is able to identify and evaluate those “special” individuals who have the necessary attributes to make a difference. Those who will go on to reach their potential, compete fully throughout the challenge’s life brings, and eventually make a positive contribution towards society.”

Our son has had the pleasure of working specifically on football training and development with Alex for the last 3 years. This year was my son’s rookie high school football season and he had great success on the field. This is directly tied to the training and mentorship he has received from working with Alex.
From the start, the expectation is set with the kids and they know that if they listen they will see results.
Alex not only prepares the kids to perform on the field physically, but also mentally. He stresses the importance of being a good student especially if their goal is to play at a university level. Nutrition and recovery is also a key component that is discussed with them.
There is no question that the kids respect his perspective, expertise and experience given that he has competed at the university and pro level of the sport.”
