Adam Kessler’s Bio

I have been a sport performance coach for nearly 20 years now. I started my own business in 1998, Fitness Planning Consultants, and was full time with it in 2000. Our business has worked with all types of clientele – athletes, wellness, diabetics, arthritics – but, now we specialize in athletic development (speed and strength training).


In 1997, I got certified as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) by the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). This is one of the best certifications that a personal trainer can acquire.

This helped me secure several jobs in the field including the following:

  • Bally Total Fitness
  • Ron Golden’s Baseball School – Strength Coordinator
  • Assistant Strength Coach at Columbus State Community College
  • Head Strength Coach at Columbus Academy High School

I received my next certification in February 2003 through the United States Weightlifting Association as a Sport Performance Coach.

My latest certification I received in February 2013. I am currently a USATF (USA Track & Field) Level 1 Coach. This certification has helped with our sprint knowledge and in performance training not only in track, but for combines as well.

I have worked with too many athletes to count from all different sports. I’ve worked with professional athletes, collegiate athletes, all-state athletes, young athletes, amateur athletes, older than 50 athletes, athletes overseas, and the list goes on.

Our facility has helped many athletes accomplish a lot of their personal goals. Whether they are looking to make a team, start for their team, or really see a lot of success, we are there to help them out. Nothing pleases me more than reading about the athletes we worked with in the off-season in the local paper. We are equally as happy about your successes as you are.
