Adam Bornstein is probably the most “zen” guest we’ve ever had in the show. He’s the epitome of what being calm and chill is all about, but interestingly enough, he wasn’t like this when he got into fitness. Like many others, Adam’s first fitness experience is related to doing sports activities in school and he always had a fondness for basketball. Unfortunately, Adam incurred back injuries twice: The first one was treated poorly, and the other took a year and a half to treat.
Perhaps it was fate, but Adam says his second therapist was the one who urged him to get back into a fit lifestyle. He would endure physically demanding tasks, but he figured it was a lot better than just remaining injury prone and living a sedentary lifestyle forever. He has since had a curiosity for the human body, which is what made him who he is today.
Adam joins us to share his insight on what fitness really means. He talks about the current state of the fitness industry, and why many are joining and more are quitting. He also talks about the kind of successes we should look for in our fitness program and why it’s alright to not be in tip top shape all the time.
” It’s not about the six pack abs or the big muscles. Those are a byproduct of doing things the right way.” Adam Bornstein
