Adam Budnik

Adam has been a HIT trainer for 7 years and is obsessed with injury prevention, health promotion, and exercise. He’s one of the most passionate people I know in health and fitness. Adam is talented at simplifying HIT to new clients and making the concept easy for them to understand.

He’s very well read and keeps abreast of all the latest developments in exercise and nutrition. Adam is someone who not just talks the talk but walks the walk.

This guy is the real deal and more knowledgable than 99% of the personal trainers you are likely to meet. Furthermore, he’s humble and wants to help, and if he’s got time, he’ll even meet you for a coffee! – contact him here.
