“As a mother in the middle of life, I think my decision to exercise with Cindy is essential to my well being. I appreciate that Cindy tailors our workouts to my specific needs and she thoughtfully develops the exercises to ensure that my whole body benefits. I have confidence I will never suffer an injury at her instruction — and most importantly, I have fun (sometimes) without even realizing how hard I’ve worked. The new training studio is perfect for one on one instruction with plenty of space for physical distancing. After quarantine, it feels great to be regaining strength and I am already seeing huge progress. I credit Cindy with motivating and encouraging me and I still give myself credit for just showing up!”
Elizabeth Crawford, Personal Training Client of Cindy Pounds
“I’ve been training w Adam now for about two years. I started training because my doctor said I was on the verge of having full blown osteoporosis. My goals have been to build core strength, improve flexibility, and achieve consistency in my exercise. He has built a sustainable program tailored to my needs that has accomplished very good results. Not only am I progressing in each area but I’ve also improved bone density by 12%. I would recommend Adam to anyone looking to achieve their health and fitness goals.”
Greg King: Osteoporosis
“Adam Pounds is one of the most motivating, professional, and knowledgeable personal trainers I have ever worked with. His workout plans are very thorough and have helped me exceed my expectations, and we have only been working together for 6 weeks! Add in his extremely precise nutrition plan tailored for each individual and you will reach your goal with hard works and adherence to Adam’s plan in no time. As I said above, he is extremely motivating and passionate about what he does, which makes it easy to buy into his program and to work my tail off. I will continue to work with Adam for as long as it takes to reach my goals.”
McCain Brown: Weight loss
“At the recommendation of my family, after having been diagnosed with a chronic disease, I began a personnel training program with Adam Pounds two years ago. This has evolved into working with him five days a week in addition to guidance for healthy eating. Besides the obvious physical changes that have occurred, I find that my overall health, stamina, flexibility and balance have markedly improved and I am able to, overtime, achieve goals that I never thought possible. Working with Adam is as much a part of my treatment as my doctors and prescribed medications. I highly recommend Adam Pounds, his extensive training knowledge and exercise program.”
Tierney Screven: Multiple Sclerosis
“Accountability is very important to me and Adam is great sending me text and emails so I can stay consistent! He has been training me for 2 years and my cholesterol has dropped 40 numbers due to Adam’s encouragement of a balanced eating lifestyle and a steady exercise plan! Adam is not only a qualified trainer but a positive advocate!”
“I began training with Cindy over 10 years ago after a back injury. My goal was to recover from my injury and improve my overall strength. Her knowledge and encouragement helped me to become a stronger, healthier version of myself . Cindy’s relational approach helps motivate me to push myself further than I ever thought was possible. I’m excited to continue with Cindy and Adam as they pursue their passion for living a healthy lifestyle.”
