Adin Smith, a graduate of New England College, is a nationally certified personal trainer through the NSCA-CSCS. Adin is currently working on his master's in human nutrition to be competed in May of 2016.
Adin started his work in a medically based fitness center at the age of 21 where he worked alongside various medical doctors and physical therapists. “Working in a hospital fitness center at a young age was a good foundation for me. The experience enabled me to help others get great results by working around most physical limitations. I can’t tell you how many clients come to me today wanting to lose weight or build a toned body, but have a thick medical history.”
After having a few years experience Adin gained a solid understanding of the fitness industry. At age 24 he opened his first personal training studio in New Hampshire. However, after spending a few more years on the east coast, Adin wanted to know where in the country would best be supportive of his line of work. It turns out California was much more health conscious than New England, which is why he relocated to Silicon Valley in the summer of 2006.
Adin’s Certifications include:
