My name is Adrian. I am a Kinesiology Graduate Student at the University of Illinois at Chicago and a CrossFit Trainer at The Foundry – Union Station CrossFit. I am also a Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist (CSCS), NSCA-Certified Personal Trainer (NSCA-CPT), and a Running Technique Specialist (RTS).

We are all human beings. Self-actualization is something we continually strive for; to be the best version of ourselves in all aspects of life. This blog is dedicated to you; the competitive athlete, the devoted fitness enthusiast, the busy parent who works a full-time job while still making time to go to the gym. Whatever your background may be, being physically fit will bring you to the starting line of a healthier, happier, and more fulfilling life. Our bodies were designed to move, not to be sedentary for hours at a time. My goal for this blog is to provide you with valuable, practical knowledge in fitness, nutrition, and stress management that you can implement every day throughout your life.

“Every living organism is fulfilled when it follows the right path for its own nature”
– Marcus Aurelius

“Mother Nature taught that movement, and it was expert teaching: basic, pure and unmolested by the interpretation of professional instructors. The practice was so pure, we didn’t know we were practicing. The rules and goals were clear: Here’s gravity; explore your world with your senses, and, by the way, an added benefit – your gift – will be movement”
