Pinnacle Performance and Fitness
For Adam Farrell, college wasn’t a time of personal enrichment, but of unhealthy living. Once the young undergraduate student became dissatisfied with the party lifestyle he was leading in college, he began exercising regularly. He found that, unlike the quickly dissipating pleasures of pizza dinners and games of donut-glaze pong, exercise helped him cultivate the overall happiness and confidence he sought. He soon realized that he had both a passion and knack for personal training.
Ten years later, Farrell is a certified strength and conditioning specialist, a well-established personal trainer, and the owner of his own fitness facility. Aided by a staff of fellow fitness aficionados, he conducts boot-camp programs and athletic-performance-enhancement camps, leading high-intensity, circuit-style workouts that aim to slim physiques, tone muscles, and boost metabolisms. The trainers scale these workouts to accommodate clients of all athletic abilities and accommodate restrictive issues, including injuries and deep-seated fears of working out in mismatched gym socks.
