Darcie Adams-Owner/Operator of Total Ryder In Motion, The Fitness Body Shop (Group Training’s/Personal one on one Training’, BeachBody Coach/FitClub Trainer - resides the Capital Region with her very supportive husband and wonderful children. I have been in the fitness industry professionally since 1998. At first I started out as an instructor of numerous different formats and clubs. For the past 11+ years I’ve held the position as a Health & Fitness Director of a non-for-profit community center while still engaging in instructing various class formats and many Personal Training sessions. I have a passion for one’s well being, health and fitness that has driven me to pursue spreading my horizon to reach more people. In doing so I joined the AFAA Team as an Examiner (grading practical examinations on those wanting to become instructors) as well as joining the FiTour Team as a Presenter (teaching new would be instructors form/craft that they wish to perform in their classes). I have an explosive energy in my classes that is contagious. Not only do you receive a safe and effective workout, but every client leaves feeling that they have accomplished one more step towards their fitness goals. This is what keeps them coming back for more each week.
