Former Vicksburg High School girl’s basketball standout Alexus Stirgus launched her personal training business, “We Workin,” in an effort to create a healthier community.

Stirgus graduated from Vicksburg High in 2010 where she was one of the lead scorers on the girl’s basketball team in its successful 16-9 2010 season. She scored a career high of 35 points in a game against NorthWest Rankin that year.

After her senior season at VHS, Stirgus went on to play basketball at Copiah Lincoln Community College. She led Co-Lin to a state title and a regional championship in the two seasons she played there. In 2012, Stirgus moved on to play for Mississippi College where she averaged 12.2 points per game.

After graduating from MC in 2014, Stirgus created “We Working” the following year to provide personal training to people seeking a healthier lifestyle.

“I want to help people branch off their negative habits and replace them with positive ones,” Stirgus said.

Stirgus trains some clients who suffer from obesity, but with hard work and dedication, she is helping them find a better and healthier way to live. She has about 15 clients she trains individually and sometimes in groups, and another 15 that she trains in basketball skills, both male and female.

“Many people I train have been unmotivated, so I try to help them, both physically and mentally, prepare to meet their goals,” Stirgus said.

Stirgus has put in countless hours into helping individuals who seek change for the better.

“We Workin” has truly lived up to its name as many people have seen Stirgus working with adults and children at Wyatt’s Gym.

Besides training individuals, Stirgus is now also a graduate assistant with the women’s basketball team at her alma mater, Mississippi College.
