Adrian is fun, knowledgeable and motivated to help others. I found him to be helpful, inspiring and engaging and someone who has a real energy and passion for what he does- helping other be the best they can be. As well as being an expert in the physical aspects of personal training, Adrian also understands the mindset, mental preparation and energy needed to achieve big goals and conveys this in a way that makes you want to take action! Highly recommended.
