Adam has been part of the CFM community since 2016, and he joined the coaching staff in 2021 after earning his CF-L1. Before becoming a CrossFitter, Adam ran cross country and track in high school and continued distance running through college until he got bored with it. The first day he tried CrossFit, he was immediately hooked. It wasn’t only the intensity of the workout or the quality of the coaching that made him want to come back, but it was also the obvious sense of community that he saw among the CFM coaches and members in the gym.
High-quality coaching in his own words:
I am proud to be part of a community where athletes are welcomed and feel comfortable to become the best versions of themselves, and I hope that as a coach, I can have that kind of impact on all CFM athletes, as all the CFM coaches have had for me.

MORE ABOUT ADAM
Why did I start CrossFit?
Since I started CrossFit nearly five years ago, I can say without a doubt that it has changed my life. Before I came to CFM, I was out of shape, I worked too much, and I did not maintain a healthy diet. I was 29 years old, and I was going down a path I didn’t want to be on. Although I fortunately did not have any major health problems, my life (both physically and mentally) was anything but healthy.
Why did I become a CrossFit coach?
To give back to CFM because I have gained so much from being a part of this wonderful community.

Advice to new CrossFitters?
I know from experience that CrossFit can be intimidating, but I would encourage new athletes to try not to be intimidated. Every CrossFitter started somewhere, and if you stick with it, you will amaze yourself with what you can do!
