    Adam's performance has met every expectation I had. He is a mature/efficient/conscientious young man. I rate him as outstanding in every aspect of his work with me. I will continue to use his services for quite sometime.

  • 5/5 stars November 9, 2014

    I began working with Adam on August 1, 2014. Prior to that, I'd had a lot of injuries including knees, lower back, right shoulder, both feet and left wrist. I was 270lbs and literally in a walking boot recovering from a broken bone in my foot when I started.

    Adam took plenty of time with me in our first meeting talking about my goals, my limitations, my challenges, my schedule, my nutrition, my motivation, my interests, and more.

    In the three months since then, I've lost about 20lbs and I've built strength, cardio endurance, flexibility, and confidence. I am able to climb the 3 flights of stairs to my apartment now without having to stop and rest. I can get myself from lying down to seated using just core strength and no arms. I've lost 2 pants sizes.

    Adam has been AMAZING about working with each of my physical limitations and still finding ways to push my mind and body to keep improving. He pays close attention to form and to safety, always making sure that you are not going to hurt yourself or move in a dangerous way.

    Don't get me wrong - Adam doesn't have a magic wand, I've had to put in a LOT of grueling work to get here. But Adam is super encouraging, kind, compassionate. He helps you celebrate the smallest of victories. He takes his job seriously and he takes as much pride in your success as you do. He is very knowledgeable and experienced within a variety of fitness areas and he's very motivated to continue to learn more and stay on top of new research. He has all kinds of tricks up his sleeves. If I am struggling too much with one kind of exercise, he instantly comes up with another that still challenges me but doesn't break me.

    Adam's been great about being flexible with my schedule, and he comes to my home. It amazes me what we can accomplish with just a few pieces of equipment in a fairly small space. In order to stay on track, I made the decision that I needed to work with Adam 2-4x/week and Adam's prices are reasonable enough to make that possible.

    Basically, if I was going to design the perfect trainer in my mind, it would be Adam. I can't recommend him enough. He's my secret weapon and I'm looking forward to working with him until I meet my goals (which are huge and difficult but I believe they are in reach with Adam's help.)

    Helped me to reach my personal fitness goals and lose weight

  • 5/5 stars September 21, 2014

    Adam's been great as a trainer. He has taken the time to understand the limitation of an older trainee and balances pushing when needed with backing off when necessary. I've seen marked improvement in my strength and agility. We've both been flexible with scheduling and it's a bonus that he comes to me, so I can exercise in the comfort of my home. Very personable, great sense of humor, and a caring, compassionate nature. Glad I chose him, and I highly recommend him!

  • 5/5 stars September 19, 2014

    Adam is very knowledgeable with regard to both nutrition and fitness. His background in physical therapy was so helpful when it came to working around my knee injury. I've made great improvements in both my body fat percentage as well as my knee functionality. I continue to see great results and I am extremely happy that I chose Adam for the job.

  • 5/5 stars January 28, 2014

    I hired Adam for in home personal training sessions. He is very knowledgable about the exercises and nutrition to go with it. Adam is always very professional and courteous.

  • 5/5 stars July 5, 2013

    I've been working with Adam for the past month and have seen great results. He's very friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and patient. The nutritional guidance Adam has been providing me with has been wonderful. I highly recommend Adam Roberts!

  • 5/5 stars June 19, 2013

    I've been Adam's client for the past two months and he has been of great help for me. He's a great motivator, listener, he's supportive, and always positive. I'm glad to have Adam Roberts as a trainer.

    Andy is awesome, so happy he responded to my request for a personal trainer. He comes to my house, well prepared, routine organized and also very reasonable as far as pricing. I know after a few months of working with him (a day or two a week) I have noticed a definite difference in my physical appearance. I was approximately 10lbs over weight and looking to firm up. I would highly recommend. He is also very knowledgeable about your diet. What to eat and not to eat. Very helpful. Great Job Andy.
