Meet Adam Gallo, Personal Trainer at BKBQB

Get to know Adam Gallo, one of our Personal Trainers at BKBQB, who holds many black belts and is possibly more obsessed with climbing than most.

Favorite Workout: Bouldering, Yoga, Plyometrics, calisthenics, Martial Arts training, and mobility complexes.
Favorite PT Story:  Having the opportunity to train clients for a trek to Machu Picchu, The Mongol Rally, and an Antarctic kayaking Excursion.

Training Philosophy:

Training must be fun, focused, and with purposeful intent. In order to eliminate something from your life that prevents you, you must replace it with something that fulfills you. True fitness is not measured by weight, height, age, fat percentage or BMI. It is measured by our mobility, strength, stability, resiliency, and awareness. A good coach is one who can play the role of facilitator, advocate, and educator, be of service to his/ her peers, and greater community.
