Meet Adam, Resident Athletic Therapist at Pure Fitness Gyms, and owner of Wicklow Sports Medicine. An expert in sports and active related injuries, this man is adamant to not only fix these injuries, but help educate people on how to prevent them from re-occurring.
Adam holds a Bachelor of Science in Sports Therapy with Rehabilitation, and has over a year’s experience working with sports teams in top US universities such as Michigan State and Ohio University. Now, he’s brought those skills and expertise back to Wicklow, where he aims to get the local active population in top shape.
“Everything I’ve studied is geared towards sports, which is what sets my clinic apart from others. Not only do I treat a client’s injuries, most importantly I give them the knowledge of how to prevent the injury from reoccurring.”
Since coming back to Wicklow, Adam’s joined Pure Fitness Gym as their Resident Athletic therapist, and has worked with many local sports teams including St. Patrick’s GAA and Wicklow Rugby Club.
His clinic operates in both of Pure Fitness Gym’s locations — Rathnew and Arklow —where he offers consultations and treatment. He also actively educates people on how to properly utilise your body, and prevent exercise related injuries, with a concept he calls “physical literacy”.
“I see so many people that are what I call physically illiterate. It’s only natural that you lose form and shape from wear and tear throughout life even in the simple things; walking, running, or even breathing.”
Adam says many people also neglect the maintenance side of being active: “If you’re a sports athlete or even a casual gym goer, it’s not just about diet and nutrition. Staying injury free requires the right knowledge and care.”
These are some of the many topics he covers in his educational seminars that he runs in Pure Fitness; some of his future planned seminars include mobility workshops, physical literacy for children and adolescents, and the signs and symptoms of exercise related medical illnesses.
General Manager of Pure Fitness Gyms, Will Clarke said he’s delighted to have Adam on board: “Adam is a fantastic addition to our team. He’s a very approachable and experienced guy with a set of skills that will greatly benefit our members here at Pure Fitness in Rathnew and Arklow.”
