Working with Adrian has made fitness the most fun and accessible it has ever been for me! He meets you were you are, listens and is great at explaining things in a way you'll remember.

Recess is amazing! Gyms have always been super-intimidating to me, but Recess is such a warm and welcome place.... it's not all gym bros, but people of all kinds and levels. Adrian works with people from where they are to get stronger in a safe, pain-free way, and he's incredibly encouraging.

I can't say enough good things about this place! I've been training here for a several months now and have absolutely loved my experience. I've been so happy with the tailoring of my training: moving from rehab into very specific and personalized work to strengthen and develop for soccer.

I can't say enough good things about this place! Whether you're working on rehab, looking for tailored workouts for a specific sport or activity, or just looking to get started, Recess is an amazing choice. I've been training here for a several months now and have absolutely loved my experience.

Only have amazing things to say about Adrian. He is extremely thorough and detailed about everything I wanted to work on and made workouts that directly addressed my goals.

Try. This. Gym. I’ve been working out with Adrian for about eight months and I am so happy with my improved functional fitness and weight loss. He adapted our approach as I’ve dealt with minor injuries and a major health scare. He is a realistic, patient, and passionate teacher.
Keith, 48
Sales Director
I started personal training (2x week) with Adrian in December 2022. Now 4 short months later I feel stronger, and ready to embark on a more active lifestyle in spring. I’m very grateful for his expertise, guidance and positive energy.
