I've been seeing Adam for the last 3 months, in that time I believe I have come a long way both personally and professionally.

Generally I like to discuss my professional environment and Adam has helped me address a number of shortcomings I had in working with my team. Using the models Adam introduced to me, I have a much more effective collaborative approach in the office, which my colleagues have responded well to.

On a personal level, Adam has helped me develop goals that I want to move towards. This has provided me with a focus and sense of direction I did not have before. It has also made me aware of how important it is to listen out for when my family members share their goals with me, and how I should consider and incorporate their ambitions and dreams into what I want to achieve. This last point has really opened up channels of communications between my wife and I that previously were not there.

I am very thankful for being able to see Adam, I look forward to continuing the experience.

Adam is a great instructor. His bootcamp takes the monotony out of your daily workout, the variation in workouts can really challenge your body in ways you won’t imagine, muscle groups you didn’t even know existed! The workouts are fun yet intense and again differ each day. Another plus for me is the efficiency of the workouts, since I work full time like most people I don’t have the extra few hours to spend in a gym. More...

What can I say about Adam other than - life changing!
Adam has been a game changer in my life, our combined PT and life coaching sessions have helped to shape my body, mind and soul. Adam listens to and addresses any concerns or ‘areas for improvement’ in a kind-yet-firm manner - keeping my inner rebel/procrastinator in check!
He has tackled my injuries and special considerations head-on - customising our sessions to accomodate and support my limitations.
I feel stronger physically and mentally than ever before. Thanks for everything Adam - in a crazy year, you’ve been my kick-ass silver lining!

Q&As

Firstly, I hold a fitness consultation session with all new clients to get to know them and what they are hoping to achieve. This session also allows us to discuss things like diet, sleep, exercise and injury history, and whether there are currently any niggles or concerns. From there, I spend a fair bit of time in the first few sessions checking the body. We look at things such as joint range of motion, flexibility, alignment issues and whether there is any unusual stiffness, tension or weaknesses in the body. Once these factors have been addressed the exercise program can gradually be increased in intensity in a safe and effective manner.

A dream body is a nice thing to aspire to, but it is often the last step of the process. Of greater importance is whether your body is pain free and functional. Can it do what you need it to do? So for instance, if you are a mum, can you pick up your baby without suffering back or neck pain? If you are an office worker, do you need to treat some RSI so that you can work better at your desk? Do you have trauma stored in the body or prior injuries? There is not much point looking great on the outside if you are constantly suffering on the inside. So these initial factors must be addressed first.

I love clients who engage with me in their problem-solving. It is often the case, for instance, that some clients are working through a challenge that has held them back. So perhaps they have never been consistent with exercise before, and they are looking for consistency. Or perhaps they have prior injuries and we need to work through and experiment with a range of different exercises to find healing. Either way, when the client chooses to engage in the problem-solving and is willing to be open and experimental, I find it very satisfying, because it gives us a great chance of making progress.

I spent several years working on the wrong things, and suffered from generalised fatigue and burnout. Eventually, after much suffering, I put all the things I liked in life into a big pile and built a business structure around them with an underlying esoteric framework. Now I have much more energy.

I call my approach "Integrated Training" because I aim to get fitness to become an ally in your life rather than an enemy. Your fitness and your program should work for you and it should empower you in other life domains. It should fit around your work and your responsibilities and enhance your capacity to live life fully and with greater joy. This approach is very different from simply being smashed. It is far kinder, and far more sustainable.

Yes. I have a flexible delivery model that allows for online training or coaching via Skype or Zoom. If you work with me only online, I will also send you a yoga mat and a booty band set at the start of the engagement, which will enable you to have some basic equipment to commence exercise with.

I developed a COVID-19 safety plan recently for a fitness program I ran recently for the ACT government. As part of this I was required to read, understand and operate within the ACT Government COVID safety guidelines. During lockdown, we also moved to online only training, but since then, we have also ensured good practice by social distancing, hand sanitising, avoiding physical contact with others and sanitising fitness equipment in between uses.
