What my Clients say:

‘I have been training with Adam for 5 months now. Initially, I was dependent on an electric wheelchair when out of the house, due to a severe heart condition and joint hypermobility disorder.  I've now lost 2 1/2 stone and gained muscle tone, fitness and endurance. I now train, shop and go about most of my day-to-day life without the wheelchair and the impact on my quality of life is dramatic.
