Adam began his Pilates education with Brett Howard and the USPA, and continues to train with Brett and other Romana trained instructors Bob Liekens and Kathi Ross-Nash. He has been a wellness and fitness fanatic since college, seeking out nutrition and exercise programs to help combat severe allergies. More than six years ago Adam started a dairy-free, gluten-free, sugar-minimal diet and credits this for keeping his allergies and body in check. Along with Pilates, Adam has been practicing yoga for more than 14 years and is also a certified welder. Over the last three years, in his spare time, he has assisted a designer in Brooklyn making furniture and lamps.
