Former Clements High School standout linebacker, Alec Davison (Class of 2012), earned a bronze medal during his first ever bodybuilding contest – The Phil Heath Classic at the Bayou Music Center on March 16, 2012. Although only 19 years old and eligible to participate as a “teen”, Davison instead opted to compete in the “open” flight of the Physique category. Participating in the entire event in all categories were over 400 athletes from all across the nation. With his third place finish, Davison is now certified to compete in all national events and eligible to become a professional body builder.
While a senior at Clements High School, Davison was a member of the National Honor Society and named to the Academic All State Football Team by the Texas High School Coaches Association. A nationally ranked linebacker by ESPN College Recruiting during his senior year in high school,
Davison became an Ivy League student- athlete at Columbia University in New York City last fall. He was named to the Preseason All Ivy League Football Team as a linebacker before a career ending injury forced him to conclude his college football career.
“After the medical professionals told me I had to give up playing football, I did a lot of soul searching”, Davison said. “Having played organized football since I was eight years old, it was a very big part of my life, but I needed to move on.” Since the age of 15, Davison had always enjoyed working hard during his year round strength and conditioning program designed to enhance his performance on the gridiron. So much so, that he earned his Certified Personal Training certificate from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA – CPT) and became a member of the National Physique Committee (NPC).
Alec has now refocused his academic and athletic energies on becoming an entrepreneur in the health and fitness industry and is in the process of transferring to the University of Houston where he plans on pursuing a BBA from one of the top entrepreneurship programs in the nation – The Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship.
Davison is not going to wait until he graduates from college to pursue his career ambitions. He recently launched a health and fitness business, Alec Davison Fitness, designed to help those interested in pursuing their fitness and nutrition goals. “Whether you are an aspiring or elite athlete looking for a competitive edge or someone just interested in improving how you look and feel, I can help you establish and achieve your goals .” If you or someone you know is interested in learning more, please visit alecdavisonfitness.com.
