The expert fitness instructors at Adapt Training introduce individuals to a multilevel physical-training model to help develop and maintain balanced musculoskeletal systems. Captained by Adapt-certified instructor Megan McKee, the early-morning women's-only boot camp integrates cardio routines with strength-training workouts to help ladies of all ages and abilities build muscle and burn fat. During Warrior camp, Jerod Warf transforms everyday people into beacons of physical fitness. To ensure a tailor-made regimen, the exercise expert consults each participant to gauge physical limitations and help students push beyond them. Warrior-camp graduates leave with an Adapt-training-routine guide, a Warrior-camp T-shirt, and the confidence to flirt with new treadmills at parties.
Stalwart and experienced fitness-seekers can opt for the intense workouts of the Adapt X boot camp. Led by John Lindala, elite athletes run through intervals that incorporate dynamic blasts of cardio and ballistic strength-training exercises. Integrated conditioning and muscle-building routines are designed for individuals in good physical shape, bolstering the coordination, development, and conversation skills of each muscle system.
A star offensive lineman for Stanford University, 315-pound Brian Cassidy—his team up by five touchdowns against Washington State—set up for a routine extra point. Suddenly, a player leaped across the line of scrimmage and landed on Brian’s knee, tearing both his ACL and MCL in one life-changing second. His hopes for an NFL career nearly dashed, Brian moved on to his rehabilitation, but instead he suffered one more debilitation: a herniated disc. Nearly paralyzed, Brian had a breakthrough: as a muscular-training specialist pointed out, his body wasn’t aligned properly, making his recovery nearly impossible. Brian started training with a new focus, emerging months later faster and stronger than ever before—and dedicated to a new multilevel training philosophy that he continues to develop at ADAPT Training.
