Adrian has been part of the Vigor Ground Team since March 2011. Though he’s been with the team just over a year, be brings over 20 years’ worth of health, fitness, nutrition experience under his belt. He’s a graduate of San Diego State University where he studied in the Department of Exercise & Nutritional Sciences and obtained his B.S. Degrees in Kinesiology with an emphasis in Fitness, Nutrition & Health and Athletic Training/Sports Medicine.
Having played football as a quarterback, Adrian realized the demands of training, nutrition and recovery and the vital role that these 3 components played in optimizing athletic performance as well as building speed, strength and power early on. If the goal was to constantly improve, the need to exceed the expectations of traditional training while feeding the body the proper nutrients to grow and be strong would have to take precedence. This approach still holds true to this day.
It wasn’t until after high school that Adrian’s passion for athletics and fitness found his way to his heart as he pursued a career as a fitness professional. He started taking classes in athletic training/sports medicine which gave him the foundation of assessing & treating injuries with the goal to take the athlete back on the playing field as soon as possible. Combined with the study of fitness, nutrition & health, this paved the way to merge both fields of study and embrace the best of both worlds – injury prevention and health & fitness.
Adrian’s goal is to bring out the “inner-athlete” in everyone he trains so that they can reap the benefits of living healthy while maintaining an excellent level of fitness. The simple reason for this is belief that there’s an athlete in all of us. Train the athlete within, no matter your talent or skill level, and you can & will achieve peak performance.
His training style integrates the most current, cutting-edge, real world results-oriented protocols that target the full body. “Train the body the way it’s designed to move” is his motto. He incorporates various training methods to his programming using a systematic approach of linear progression while using modalities such as: weights, sleds, ropes, sandbags, kettlebells, body weight vs. gravity, etc. Whether it’s fat loss, building lean mass, speed development or establishing great nutrition habits, Adrian can help you get to the next level while meeting all of your health, fitness and nutrition needs and goals.
Cody McBroom is an extremely driven and passionate coach dedicated to Vigor Ground’s clients and reputation as an exceptional training facility. He is a certified personal trainer through ISSA and also studied Personal Fitness at Highline Community College, a program rated top in the nation by Livestrong, under one of our nation’s most knowledgeable trainers Tim Vagen. Cody has an athletic history in the sport of soccer which he played at an elite level for multiple teams.
After a traumatic sports related injury to his left knee he was unable to be physically active. This led to him becoming out of shape, unhealthy, and eventually over weight. He did not like where his life was heading and decided he needed to make a drastic change. He decided to take matters into his own hands and learn about personal training, this led to a 40lb weight loss which changed his life. He then changed his entire attitude on life and the way his body should be treated and decided that he would spend his life helping others do the same.
This is how and why Cody enrolled in Tim Vagen’s training program at Highline and then soon met Luka Hocevar also through the program, who then became his most influential mentor. Now he is honored to be working under Luka as a trainer/strength coach at Vigor Ground Fitness and Performance.
