ADAM LLOYD

BKIN, CSCS, PN-2

Owner & CEO; Director of High Performance

Peak Performance Expert, Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach

Business Development Advisor

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.

If not behind the front desk welcoming members and being a right hand to Adam in operations, you will find Veronika on the gym floor living the active lifestyle.

In the down time, you can find Veronika exploring outside while spending time with her family and fur babies and bossing Adam around

CRISTIANO DIGIACINTO
NSCA-CSCS
Performance and Lifestyle Coach / Personal Trainer

As a life-long elite athlete, Cristiano has always believed that exercise and physical activity are extremely important to living a long and high quality life - even beyond sports. Growing up He loved being physically active and played as many sports as He possibly could

There was a major turning point in his life / Hockey career that has helped drive Cristiano to be the Performance Coach he is today. After not being selected in the OHL draft,  He decided to do whatever He could to become a better athlete and hockey player.

 

He began training with Adam at ALP in 2014 and was drafted to the NHL in that year. Over the course of the next few seasons He continued to work hard on both the physical - but also mental side - of his performance. And in His final year of junior hockey, He was very fortunate to lead his Windsor Spitfires OHL team to win the 2017 MasterCard memorial cup. 

After junior hockey, and an uncertain Pro Career, Cristiano decided to play CIS hockey and get his Kinesiology degree at Acadia University. As an Academic All Canadian, He took his time in university to expand his knowledge in the field of health, athletics and nutrition. Cristiano interned with us at ALP in the summer of 2019 and was a critical component to our Athletic Development Program that summer, learning our systems and approach from behind both points of view - both as an Athlete and a Coach. 

Cristiano's goal as a performance coach is to share his knowledge and experience of both physical and mental health and exercise with as many people as possible. He truly wants to help athletes and individuals reach their full potential by improving their physical and mental performance so they can achieve any goals they desire.

Being the oldest of a family of 4 other athletes, Nathan has always been playing sports, being competitive, and staying active in many ways.

Nathan has now coached at College, High School, and Youth levels, focusing primarily on soccer.

 

Taking his love for coaching soccer, Nathan completed an internship at ALP in the Winter of 2019-2020 to explore coaching the strength and conditioning side of sport.
