Dr. Adam Locker

Royal Palm Beach CrossFit Coach Adam LockerAdam, a native New Yorker who moved to Boca Raton in 1988, is a retired audiologist who has a strong passion for CrossFit.  He and his family reside in Wellington, Florida.  He attended and graduated from the University of Florida and L.S.U. Medical Center.  Adam’s involvement in competitive athletics gave him a background for fitness that he carried well past his college career.  After years of being in the gym he became bored with the same routine of the globo-gyms and eventually lost his motivation for fitness.  In 2009 a friend introduced him to CrossFit and he’s never been the same since.  Adam thrives on helping people achieve their fitness goals through proper nutrition and the strong CrossFit Liger community.  He founded the CrossFit Liger location in May of 2012.  His greatest passion is watching people transform over time into the athletes they never expected they could become or thought they would be again.  Adam stresses the need for proper form and technique before the wants of weight and speed.  To this day, his most gratifying accomplishments is the growing album of people whom he has helped transform from average to extraordinary.
