Adam Gutierrez, 25, is trainer for Jada Blitz training currently living in Buffalo, NY. I interviewed Adam to talk about his love for fitness and his future goals.
What sparked your involvement with fitness?
AG: After my father passed away I became a heavy drinker to ease the pain. I became severely overweight. I was out of control with what I ate and how I acted when I was drunk. Eating the most unhealthy foods all the time and consuming up to a bottle to myself a night or a 30 pack of beer. Halloween of 2010 I drove my car after I had been drinking all night. I popped a tire and swerved off the road multiple. times. I was very fortunate I didn’t kill anyone or myself. The next day I had just decided to quit, it was too much and I just stopped cold turkey. I needed to pick up a new hobby and I became infatuated with fitness. I started going to the gym then I met a trainer there who I started training with a really looking up to. I started to learn the proper ways to lift and eat and I soon became very addicted to the results I was seeing. Justin Draper was and still is my trainer and now my boss. He is the one who really showed me everything I know and hooked me in.
Describe a typical day for you at Jada Blitz Training.
AG: My typical day at Jada Blitz starts at about 9, I train two clients from 9 to 10 then Justin, Russ (another trainer) and myself all workout together. We usually finish our workout around 1130. We sit down and eat after that. Then I go on with my training from then on, clients start back up at 12 noon then i go all the way to 8 pm depending on the day.
