ADAM HARRINGTON

CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER

Adam is a Personal Trainer who is certified through Canfitpro. He discovered his love for fitness while serving in the Canadian Armed Forces. During his time in service, he was pushed to his limits physically and mentally, which helped him realize the human body is capable of amazing things if you work hard and put your mind to it.  

 

Growing up, he was always active, whether it was riding dirtbikes in the warmer months, or racing snowmobiles all over Canada and the USA in the winter months. After high school, he worked as a flat roofer with his father in the family business, until deciding to join the Armed Forces. Joining at the height of the War on Terror, it took two years for him to finally get an acceptance letter. He thoroughly enjoyed his time in-service, but family circumstances forced him to move back home to Ontario from Edmonton, where he was posted. After that, he worked a few different jobs, and tried his hand at running a pet treat business.  

 

However, he missed the challenge the Army offered. So, he started pushing himself in other ways. From participating in Spartan Obstacle Course races, to trail running, to running his first half-marathon, he reignited his passion for fitness and nutrition. This led him to pursue a career in Personal Training, where he can share his love for health and fitness with others. Adam believes in taking a multi-pronged approach to developing fitness, including resistance training, cardiovascular conditioning, nutrition and mobility work. He also believes in continually furthering his education to keep on top of all of the new studies and developments in the world of fitness. This allows him to feel confident that he is providing the best possible service to his clients, for now and for the duration of his career.  

 

Fun Fact: Adam has a wife, and two beautiful Siberian Huskies, Dozer and Nova, who occasionally join him on his training runs. While he was running his pet treat business, he took courses on canine health and nutrition, which helped teach him how to properly feed and care for our furry family members. On the weekends, you can find them on one of the many beautiful trails our area has to offer.
