Adam's CV

My journey into the sport and fitness industry started in 2007 when I decided that going to Gateshead College to study sport and exercise science was what I wanted to do when leaving school. After leaving Gateshead I continued my journey by going to Sunderland University and studying sport and exercise development. It was here, in my final year, that I started my own sport and fitness company. For the next two years I worked hard building my business and getting into as many schools and clubs as possible to deliver sport sessions. All of which was carried out whilst working, firstly as a labourer, then a planner / drawer and ultimately as Northern Site Manager for P & D Projects.

After establishing a formidable client base and with many schools taking up constant work, two years later I decided it was time to further my education and that I wanted to become a personal trainer. This came through the love of working out, the love of teaching and most of all my love for having a positive impact on someone else’s life, so becoming a personal trainer combined the three perfectly.

I completed my level 2 gym instructor and level 3 personal trainer qualifications and on completing my course was offered a job at DW Sunderland. Without any hesitation I jumped at the chance and started immediately. I had an amazing couple of years there and learned so much about the job, clients and also myself. I have always had a great work ethic so the 6 o clock morning starts and 10 o clock evening finishes were tiring but very rewarding and within no time at all I was able to build and sustain a very successful personal training business, whilst still maintaining and building my sport and fitness company and progressing through P&D Projects.

The expansion of the sport and fitness company saw me take on roles at Newcastle Women’s Football Club as Head of fitness, strength and condition, whilst also holding the role of Reserve Team Manager. I also become the fitness and fielding coach for a number of cricket teams.

It was during my time at DW that I also discovered my love for group exercise. Another passion of mine is music and from the age of 14 I used to DJ and went from playing in my bedroom to being on stage and playing a warm up set to Tiesto on his colours tour of Edinburgh. Being able to combine music and exercise therefore was another winner for me.

At this point I handed in my notice in at DW after deciding that I wanted to have a balance between personal training, teaching group exercise, my roles in sports coaching and my ever progressing status at P&D Projects.

In 2014 I set up my second business called Future Fit Performance. This was to be aimed at supplying businesses with health and wellbeing provisions for their staff. It started mainly delivering fitness sessions into workplaces either before work, during work or after work. This then grew to offering multiple nutrition options alongside mental health, financial advice and team building. In 2015 Future Fit Performance became a full time role and with the success we had found it became inevitable that the work I was doing for P&D Projects had to subside. Following on from this in 2016 we then discovered a need for the staff within these work places to be able to access all of our services 24/7. We then created an online wellness portal which allows businesses to put their staff onto and give them access to our online holistic wellbeing services.

2017 saw the formation of a sister company / different arm to the business in Future Education, of which I over saw the formation of. Being a qualified tutor and assessor myself it made sense to add this onto the business. 2017 also saw me take on roles as a Fitness Consultant helping UK known gym businesses and also local independently owned gyms / fitness studios improve their services and customer experiences.

Thus bringing me to where I am today.

I have many interests although because of my love of sport and fitness, most of those interests are sports related. I enjoy playing numerous sports mainly cricket, golf and football. The fore mentioned playing at semi-professional level.

Outside of sport I used to enjoy DJing. I’ve played at various events, bars, clubs etc. but due to work commitments and lack of time no longer can fit this in as well.

I have also had the luxury of developing numerous property and either reselling or renting them out.

Other than that long walks with my dog are priceless.

I was really struggling with my Physical Education Theory - Adam was able to go through my problem areas in general and then the areas I struggled with the most in much more depth. He also showed me new techniques that have made such a difference to my learning. I am now a trainee teacher and would never have gotten to this position without him! Would 100% recommend!
