My name is Adam Riccio and I have been involved in the Health in Fitness Industry for over 20 years now. My journey in Health and Fitness began at school where I regularly became involved in sprinting, running for both school and County at 100m and 200m. Reaping the benefits training had on my body, I slowly began to understand the ways exercise can aid individuals in so many ways. I decided from that time on, I was keen to maintain this positive lifestyle and was adamant to, in some way, share and guide others into the positive benefits of exercise on lifestyle and wellbeing. Following attaining a Degree in Human Physiology whilst studying in London, I joined the Private Health and Fitness Club Holmes Place in 1996. There, I worked and engaged with many clients from all areas of work. I gained my accreditation with the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) whilst working at Holmes Place before deciding to take a path on my own after two years working at Holmes Place.
AMR Personal Training was formed in 1998. In that time, I have seen a lot of developments in both the evolvement of training techniques and the emphasis this has, once applied, on an individual's overall health. The positive effects of exercise on both physical and mental wellbeing has been the new shift. Gone are the days where it was once thought of as a luxury to indulge in one-on-one Personal Training: Getting the most out your training sessions and developing the best body you can has become the norm. Individuals want to strive to be the best that they can be and they need the best body to accomplish that. We at AMR Personal Training understand that concept and guide all clients to strive towards gaining the best body they can, and more!

Adam is a great trainer. His friendly approach beats going to the gym and he achieves fantastic results in general fitness and flexibility. He also makes it easy to fit training around my busy schedule. Ted Kravitz, Pit Lane Reporter
I have trained with Adam regularly for over fifteen years. I love the fact we can be outdoors in nearly all weathers and he adapts the hour so that it is varied all the time.
He provides enough challenges to help build and extend your fitness levels and the overall regime is an excellent mix of core workout, cardio and specialist area exercises. We run, skip, use benches, elasticated bands and many other components from his rucksack or the world around us! I also love the boxing – an excellent stress buster!!
As time has marched on Adam has cleverly adapted the program to accommodate what I have needed -- pre and post natal exercise, post-injury recovery (back and hamstring), and has also encouraged me to train and accomplish other fitness goals including recently achieving my first ever 10K.
Adam is encouraging to firm rather than military to bossy in his approach and has a sound and wise manner. He is someone it is always a pleasure to spend an hour or two a week! Adam is always punctual and accommodating on the calendar when he can be. I cannot recommend Adam more highly if you are looking for a regular trainer to help you with your overall fitness and health regime.

I am not sure how best to describe the equivalent of a great doctor’s “bedside manner” for a personal trainer, but Adam has this to a tee. In my weekly training sessions with him since 2007, he seems to sense the best variations and combination of drills to suit each moment. It has always been clear to me that underlying Adam’s easy-going style is a wealth of formal “physio” knowledge. Adam delivers his programme of “fitness, body strength and well-being” effectively and enjoyably. I have to thank him for anchoring a decade of well-being and am counting on many more years to come.
