A National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer and a nationally qualified Bikini Competitor, health and fitness is my love, life, and passion. I believe every body is different. We all have different needs, strengths, and goals. I use an integrated approach to individualize workouts to address any muscular imbalances, movement dysfunctions, and incorporate corrective strategies so that you can reach your fitness goals.

My fitness journey started with me exercising in my basement, too shy to be around other people. But I had hit a plateau and needed a change. I finally joined a gym. Since I never used gym equipment, I hired a personal trainer to teach me. I learned so much! The stronger I became, the more I fell in love with a fit lifestyle. A year later, I stepped on stage at my first Bikini Competition. I knew that moment I wanted to help others learn about health and fitness too.

Whether you want to be athletic with speed and explosive movement; muscular with the power to lift very heavy; have the endurance to race for long distances; or if your goal is just to feel good living life in your body every day, I can help you get there.

Adam Cochran – Certified Personal Trainer

Have you ever been faced with a new challenge and thought, how in the world am I going to accomplish this task? Well, I absolutely have been. Its scary and fun all at the same time.  Whether it is walking up to the start line of your first 5k race or in the gym performing an exercise you have never tried before. 

My name is Adam Cochran. I am a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer. My life has always encompassed some aspect of fitness.  Beginning with organized sports as an adolescent to being the Aquatics Director for a summer camp to adulthood where I continue to challenge myself at endurance race events along with bettering my health with regular exercise.

My approach to personal training is a progressive evidence-based model designed to improve overall health by integrating aspects of cardiorespiratory, balance, core, flexibility, resistance, plyometrics, and speed, agility, and quickness. If you are brand new to fitness and are interested in learning or have been working out for years and would like help pushing passed a plateau this method can help.  Let’s face that new challenge and conquer it and have fun doing so together.
