I have had few personal trainers in my quest to reach my goals in fitness for the past 3 years. So, this is not a new year resolution for me. Recently, my TWO!!!! different personal trainers have become a little hard to establish a routine. My overall progress in strength, cardio and flexibility have stalled. Having a bad lower doesn't help, but with a KNOWLEDGEABLE professional trainer, the sky is the limit. Enter here Adam Smith. He is what I was lacking to reach the next level. Adam was quick to communicate, easy to schedule and was on time. Today after my first session, I can tell I finally got a Professional Trainer, that knows his trade. The session was ALL fun, full of new challenges and most important safe to my lower back. The Kickboxing part was an eye opening fun experience. Having a Karate background, I felt back at home. Can't wait for the next session in 3 days. I guess that the saying: "Can't teach an old dog new tricks", doesn't apply to me. At 55 years young, I am ready to learn and kick some serious........ ;-) If you are stuck in your fitness journey or are looking for a lifestyle change, don't waste time and call Adam. I already did the research for you all. You welcome. LOLJan 26, 2016Verified
Having Adam as my personal trainer was one of the best fitness experiences I've had. He has a great attention to detail and crafts the workout specifically to your body's needs and doesn't just do the normal stuff. He is a great motivator and makes you feel good about even the smallest improvements to your strength or abilities. And he can help you with a great nutrition plan as well. All around, you couldn't ask for a nicer guy to get your butt in shape!Jul 22, 2015
I've worked with personal trainers over the past 25+ years. Hands down, Adam Smith is the best I've ever trained with, ever. I'm grateful for the opportunity to train with him over the past 5 years or so. He is extremely knowledgeable about everything fitness, and also nutrition (including specific diets like vegan, etc). As a matter of fact, it was Adam who helped me to identify Power Lifting as a competitive sport, and then trained me to win my 2014 SoCal Gold Medal. Adam has helped me transform my body by decreasing fat while increasing my muscle mass!! I never know my body could look like it does today. He really cares about the well being of his clients, and has become a dear friend over the years. I live in LA, and am hoping Adam will host boot camps and continue to coach me via Skype from TX because he is truly the BEST EVER!!!!!

Adam is very personable. Takes a realistic view of training me and is very motivational. Very fortunate to have found him!Apr 7, 2017Verified
I hired Adam as more of a consultant than a trainer. This seems to be the optimal path for me. He's done a great job of really evaluating my current status and road mapping me to my goals.Mar 30, 2016Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?It varies depending on distance, length of session, and session frequency.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Ordinarily I will spend a few minutes asking questions about a client's specific goals, exercise history, etc. Then I will take them through a basic movement evaluation to get an idea of the fitness intensity that the client will be able to tolerate. After that I'll usually take them through some fundamental kickboxing movement so that they can have a little fun.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Every couple of years I will take a subset credential course. Beyond my Certified Personal Trainer certificate, I am a Mixed Martial Arts Conditioning Specialist, and a Fitness Nutrition Specialist. But I am always researching things whether it gives me a piece of paper or not.
