Adam's grandfather sparked his lifelong fascination with health and fitness. He simply wanted to "keep him out of trouble" – instead, his grandfather shaped the person and the coach Adam is today. Sport became the cornerstone of his life. He went on to compete in Laser Class sailing at an international level, and to compete in skiing, football and hockey, among myriad sports and activities.
His first coaching passion, alpine skiing, granted him the privilege of working with young elite athletes, and to form the minds of other coaches across Canada as a Course Conductor for the Canadian Ski Instructors Alliance. With a background in hockey and skiing, he soon rose from an entry-level instructor of inline skating to become the top Examiner in the International Inline Skating Association. He's traveled the world in that role, "coaching the coaches" in Canada, the United States, Germany, Holland, Slovenia, Australia and Singapore.
Through devoted study and intense practice, he's explored the world of health, fitness and nutrition through myriad certifications, books, courses, DVDs and seminars. He's never happy with the status quo, always looking for a better answer and willing to share what he finds.
