Adam is a certified Personal Trainer who believes that the most important role that fitness can play is empowerment. Living pain free, having proper posture, and being fit enough to live your life the way you want to is what he believes fitness is all about! He wants to share his message and inspire others to challenge themselves and accomplish goals with confidence. With his specialty in Older Adult fitness, Adam can ensure that anyone he shares the gym with feels like they had a safe and effective workout.  When he’s not talking about exercise, Adam loves exploring the corners of Haida Gwaii and is usually experimenting with his newest batch of jerky or kombucha.



  • Participants can show up to class at least 15 minutes before start (6:45pm). Please give enough time for the instructor to complete daily verbal screening, attendance, and to complete any required forms.
  • Participants must complete a waiver, Assumption of Risk Form, and Declaration of Compliance form on the first day of class. Failure to do so means participants will not be permitted entry.
  • Participants must also complete active daily screening upon entry.
  • Interval training does not necessarily mean high-intensity interval training. Going forward, activities in this class will be calibrated for low-intensity interval training.
  • Participants are expected to distance (minimun 3m) prior to class and during. We encourage participants to wear a non-medical mask until they are in situated in their designated workout area, to remove during activity, and to replace if going to the washroom or leaving the program.
  • We ask that participants avoid aggregating in entryways. If you’d like to catch-up before or after class, outside is safest, while maintaining distance.
  • Participants must use the hand sanitizing station at the front entrance but are also encouraged to wash their hands before and after the activity.
  • Hand hygiene and physical distancing will be encouraged.
  • Hand-shaking & hugging is discouraged.
  • Participants are encouraged to bring their own mat to the class. Other equipment (i.e. bands, mats) will be assigned to each participant for the duration of the program and stored on-site in labelled bags, distributed by the instructor before start of class.
  • Equipment that may be used (e.g. bosu balls) will be cleaned & sterilized between use.
  • Instructor will clean high-touch surfaces before and after the start of class (e.g. door handles, chairs).
  • Instructor will manage complete record-keeping and report daily attendance and any incidents to the Recreation Coordinator.
  • Participants must stay home if they show any symptoms (e.g. cough, fever, fatigue).
  • Class may be cancelled by instructors if they show symptoms.
  • In the event of a participant or instructor showing symptoms during the program, the participant will be asked to remove themselves from the program and seek medical advice. Beyond daily screening, is not up to our staff to do temperature checks, testing or contact tracing. This is the role of the health authority.

Staying safe is a shared responsibility. These procedures and our combined efforts help to lower the risk of spreading COVID-19, but there is still a risk.

Please do your best to abide by these new procedures to ensure we can recreate safely and respectfully together on Haida Gwaii.
