Sometimes the most important part about getting fit is changing your mindset. That’s what happened when Tom Adams stopped saying, “Maybe strength and fitness training isn’t for me,” and started saying, “Maybe it is.”
Ever since he made that subtle mental shift, Tom has been ripping it up in training. He’s been getting stronger and more mobile every week. And now, after killing Fight Gone Bad on Friday, he’s ready to join classes this week… he’s going to be a great addition to the 6AM crew!
Tom becomes the 4th member of the Adams clan to join the Strength and Fitness Zone…. so you’re forgiven if you thought he looked familiar. (Though Tom tells me he’s much more handsome than his brother Scott.)
Please join me in welcoming Tom to our community!
