Adriano Melikardi

Fitness and Sports have always been my passion. From my early teenage years, I started working out. I loved how it made me look and feel. I came to the realization that ultimately what I truly wanted was to turn my fitness lifestyle from a hobby into a career. As a Fitness Professional, my mission is to help people who suffer from chronic pain caused by musculoskeletal imbalance and struggle with weight loss.

    Adriano is a fantastic trainer. I have been training with Adriano at my home for a little over months now, and have had a very positive experience. I am losing clothing sizes faster than I can buy replacement clothing! Everyone in my office is noticing, even people I don't see that often are complimenting my continuing results! He has helped me with my nutrition and gave me the blueprints to my success. I can’t thank him enough and recommend him to everyone I know!

    Adriano is an amazing motivator! Whether it's cardio or strength training, he motivates you to keep going and work the hardest for you. He is incredibly knowledgeable about both fitness nutrition and exercise, and he truly understands how to tailor his advice and instruction in both areas to meet the specific needs of everyone in the room. I highly recommend him - you'll be hooked!!!

    I have been training with Adriano for awhile now. His knowledge, care & concern for your fitness & nutrition is outstanding. He has always been willing to help & if he is not sure of an answer to your question, he will research it & get back to you with a thorough answer. I would highly recommend him to anyone who has concern for their fitness & nutrition.

    I have been working with Adriano for over five months.
    He is very knowledgeable and very professional.
    He varies my workouts and pushes me to my limits, all the while forcing me to maintain my form and posture.
    At the age of 50, I am in the best shape of my life.
    He is an inspiration and a delight to work with.
    I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a trainer.
