Adam believes in taking an integrated approach to athletic performance based on functional movement/ flexibility and performance assessments, exercise related nutritional evaluations, specific corrective/dynamic exercises and strength training, unique recovery strategies, along with a host of other modalities.
Adam's core fundamentals to training are quite simple; train with a purpose and do it right. An elite hockey player should train to perform better at hockey, not to look good at the beach (although a chizzled physique is an added benefit of doing things right).
Adam designs ingeniously crafted individualized training and nutrition programs for each client's needs and purpose. He's careful to develop any client to have solid form and fundamentals before attempting to lift heavier loads. Far too often people of all agents and abilities are asked to perform a movement with either too much weight or poor form, or sadly, both. Adam always says if a person does not have the proper functional control over the movement, whether it's an elite athlete or a 9-5 office worker - compensations occur leading to diminished performance and injury.

As one of the Hamilton areas most renowned coaches, Barry brings 10 years of experience and coaching wisdom to our team as a Senior Performance Coach.
Having struggled with his weight throughout his younger years, Barry understands what it feels like to be confused and not sure what to do with all the information out there today.
He knows first hand what takes to achieve long-term, sustainable results. This combination of personal and professional experience allows him to help clients filter and make sense of the overwhelming amount of (often bad) information available today.
Barry believes that every great fitness program is built on a foundation of resistance training, and that resistance training isn’t just a way to exercise, but a skill that should be learned and progressed to improve the lives of those who practice it.
On the nutrition side of things, Barry is all about helping his clients understand that results come from long-term consistency. Building habits and understanding what it truly means to eat a healthy, balanced diet is what helps his clients not just reach their goals, but maintain them.
As ALP-TI’s Group Training Coordinator, Barry is responsible for all of the programs and initiatives involved with our women’s only StrongGirls program and our Co-Ed Adult Performance class. His goal is to provide a one-of-a-kind group fitness experience that makes safe, fun, effective exercise programming accessible to everyone.
Barry is available for 1-on-1 and semi-private training, you can learn more about him through his instagram page @builtbybarry where you’ll find tons of tips, exercises, and helpful infographics!
