Growing up a swimmer with some running background, Adam began racing triathlon in high school and has been competing for over 10 years. As a four-year collegiate rower for the Drexel University Men's Varsity Crew program, Adam expanded his endurance sports background before returning to more frequent and competitive multisport racing after college. He now competes as an elite amateur in all multisport distances, with a focus on long course triathlon and open marathon races. In recent years, Adam has placed well enough in top races throughout the United States to qualify for the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii, as well as the Boston Marathon, posting sub-10 hour and sub-3 hour times in each.
As an assistant coach with Mid-Atlantic Multisport, Adam is also the president of the Philadelphia Triathlon Club, but in his free time, he likes to maintain his full time job as a product development / R&D engineer for Endless Pools, Inc., the fitness equipment industry's leading manufacturer of swimming machines. As a result of that job position, as well as from having spent years teaching and coaching swimming to people of all ages and backgrounds, from infants to adults, Adam has developed a great sense of the various swim stroke habits and techniques, both good and bad, for athletes of all types and abilities. Those experiences have given him a keen ability to initially help an athlete break down, analyze, and understand the swim stroke, before helping that athlete work on the proper mechanics that will ultimately improve both his or her swim stroke and overall fitness level.
