Our Story

One of his strongest inspirations came from his younger sister, Emily, who was born with Spina Bifida...
Sometimes inspiration comes from a single ray of sunshine...

From the Beginning….

Adam has always been fascinated with the human body and its exponential power. Since he was a young boy, Adam has looked for ways to push his body’s strengths along with trying to discover his limitations. One of his strongest inspirations came from his younger sister, Emily, who was born with Spina Bifida, a paralyzing disability that never allowed her to walk. Adam observed therapists working with his sister trying to help her to gain strength and mobility in her upper body so that she could keep herself strong. Adam’s observations of these therapists instilled in him a dedication to helping others who have disabilities, who are living in pain and those who are trying to get out of daily survival mode and into thriving mode.

Service to Others…

After completing a massage therapy program in Oregon and then spending several months fine tuning his massage skills at the world renowned Esalen Institute in Big Sur, California, Adam made his way back to his hometown of San Diego. Adam spent several years working at health and wellness facilities such as chiropractor offices, day spas and privately owned gyms where he was able to further develop his personal training and massage skills. Adam gained a loyal clientele that followed him to his first business location, a small rental house in Ocean Beach. Adam converted the living room into a small gym and massage room. From here in 2009 Adam Winter Lifestyle, a health, and wellness business was formed. His name and reputation continued to grow within the community, including with health and wellness experts and with doctors. Referrals flowed in which gave Adam the motivation to open up AWL in a commercial location centrally located in the San Diego area. Adam also completed his BS in Kinesiology and delved into nutrition studies with the Price Pottenger Foundation.

Continued Growth…

In 2012, AWL opened a gym, massage studio and nutrition counseling center in Hillcrest. It took all of Adam’s savings and strength along with the support and help from his family and his girlfriend (now wife) to get this new and exciting facility up and running. Adam recruited a team of trainers and massage therapists to join him on his mission. Having a team of like-minded individuals with the same philosophies allowed AWL to reach larger populations. At the same time, Adam spent quality time deeply studying to ensure the best healing practices where known and implemented for each individual client. Adam added additional nutritional studies to his practice to fully encompass a total health and wellness environment for clients. AWL was successful at this location for 5 years.

A Forever Home…

In 2017, AWL purchased a commercial building located in Mission Hills. Our new location is a boutique style gym located in a wonderful neighborhood. Our state of the art facility is located on the ground floor and allows AWL clients the use of indoor and outdoor exercise spaces. AWL looks forward to continued success, growth, and expansion. Adam continues to pursue continuing education that allows him to separate himself from other trainers and therapists in the industry. His knowledge is then passed along to his team, who are always excited to progress forward in new ways to facilitate healing and help clients achieve their goals!
