Since 2015, experienced personal trainer Alexander Garbiso has operated Mile High Nutrition and Fitness, based in Aurora, Colorado. Alexander Garbiso is an avid traveler who has been to several parts of the world, including Lucerne in Switzerland.

Considered the quintessential Swiss city, Lucerne has been a popular tourist destination since the 19th century and has been noted to be a favorite choice of important historic figures such as Queen Victoria, writer and politician Johann Wolfgang Goethe, and German composer Richard Wagner. Lucerne is also known for the medieval-age Old Town.

One of the city’s premier destinations, Old Town contains well-preserved 15th-century buildings, ancient rampart walls and towers, and its two covered bridges. The more famous of the two, Kapellbrücke (Chapel Bridge), has a history that dates back to 1333 and is Lucerne’s most popular landmark. The bridge was almost destroyed when it was ravaged by a fire in 1993, and although it has been restored, the damage is still noticeable in the 17th-century pictorial panels found under the roof.

The Story behind the Famous Cat in The Godfather

Based in Aurora, Colorado, Alexander Garbiso is the owner of Mile High Nutrition and Fitness, where he also serves as a personal trainer. During his free time, Alexander Garbiso enjoys watching classic films. One of his favorite film series is The Godfather.

First released in 1972, The Godfather is a crime film directed by Francis Ford Coppola. A commercial and critical success, it became the year’s highest-grossing film and bagged several Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Adapted Screenplay. The screenplay was sourced from an eponymous novel written by Mario Puzo.

One of the most famous scenes in the first movie is the opening scene where Vito, played by Marlon Brando, can be seen holding a cat. The cat, as it turns out, was a last-minute addition and was not included in the original script. The idea came to Coppola when he found a stray cat walking around at Paramount Studios. He then took the same cat and put it on the scene, although its loud purring required Brando’s lines to be looped over.

Alexander Garbiso works as an Onnit-certified personal trainer and independent contractor with Mile High Nutrition and Fitness. When he is not working, Alexander Garbiso enjoys hockey, and his favorite professional team is the Colorado Avalanche.

The Avalanche recently announced via Twitter that they had hired a new head coach, Jared Bednar.

Last season, Jared Bednar led the former Lake Erie Monsters (since renamed the Cleveland Monsters) to win the Calder Cup, making him no stranger to championship teams. After coaching the Monsters for two seasons, Bednar’s record stood at 81-60-29. He also coached the South Carolina Stingrays to a Kelly Cup victory in the 2008-09 season.

Trent Vogelhuber, a free agent who recently signed with the Avalanche, said Bednar is a perfect balance – a player’s coach who also knows how to provide stern discipline when needed. Vogelhuber previously played under Bednar on the Monsters.

When asked about the move, Jared Bednar said he looked forward to the new challenge, assuring fans he was ready for the role.
