 Adam Parent

Adam Parent

Adam enjoys training all levels and abilities. He especially enjoys bringing the awareness to individuals of just how possible it is to achieve their transformation; whether it’s weight loss, strength training, building muscle, or returning from an injury.  Adam believes that all an individual needs to make a transformation possible is focus and determination.

Adam’s exercise regime has come via sports throughout his childhood and transitioned into weightlifting in his early twenties. Shortly after high school Adam began weightlifting. Initially, he weighed 150 lbs but increased his body weight to 165 lbs of additional muscle. His focus was building awareness of his body through exercise and becoming stronger. As he advanced he became more fascinated with how the body works and began studying to achieve a certificate of massage therapy and bodywork through the Community College of Vermont. At the same time he began specifically training in powerlifting and also Olympic lifting. In the next two and a half year span Adam increased his body weight from 165 lbs to 220lbs through his learned weightlifting. Adam also has experience with and understands the difficulties that come with recovering from injuries.

Shortly after completing college he became certified as a personal trainer through the National Strength and Conditioning Association and a Level 1 Sports Performance Coach through USA Weightlifting. Recently he has become a certified spinning instructor through Mad Dog Athletics.
Adam enjoys spreading the knowledge has acquired to others and watching people succeed.
