Aga Adamczyk-Witcher - Fitness Trainer in Evanston Illinois
early childhood, Aga has been physically active. She participated
in a variety of sports in high school and elementary school, where
she was on a long distance running team. During second year of high
school, Aga suffered from a minor head injury that kept her out
of gym classes for a year. It was devastating to her and she felt
like she needed to find a new passion in her life, other than sports
and physical activities. However, that turned out to be a mistake.
During Aga's 4 years of soul searching after high school, she mostly
tried to replace physical activity with something cerebral and safe
from potential physical harm; thus she finished a Bachelor's degree
in Political Science and Mass Media. However, the last year of college
Aga realized that she has no greater passion than sports and health.
After many years of missing the enjoyment and health benefits of
sports and fitness, in February of 2005, she became a Fitness Trainer
certified by International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA). In
November of that same year, Aga became a Specialist in Performance
Nutrition also provided by the ISSA.
In March of 2006, Aga worked as a fitness trainer in Calypso Health
Club in Warsaw, Poland. There she advised clients mainly in her
areas of expertise, weight loss and/or muscle building. While at
Calypso, Aga also assessed new clients and created fitness plans
to target the client's specific goals.
5 months of working at Calypso mostly with fitness, Aga moved on
to expand her knowledge in the area of health and research, what
she was studying at that time. She accepted and internship with
National Institute of Hygiene and Epidemiology in Warsaw, Poland.
After, her internship, Aga moved back to the US where she gained
some experience in training patients with diabetes type II, one
of the fastest growing diseases.
Aga recently completed her MS in nutrition from University of Bridgeport.
She currently works as a personal trainer and sports nutrition consultant.
Aga's passion for fitness and nutrition is very strong and she
encourages everyone around her to make important health changes
and become fit for life. Her knowledge and drive to keep abreast
of the latest health and fitness, through reading lots of scientific
literature, gives others security and comfort that they will be
informed as well.
believes that training and nutrition as tools to maintain good health
and well being are inseparable. Preventative medicine approach is
the key to avoidance of several major chronic diseases. There are
too many US cases of heart attacks, obesity, diabetes type II, and
hypertension, almost all of which could be prevented by diet and
Aga believes that basic changes can provide huge benefits. She
strongly encourages people not to buy any "junk food"
because what they bring into their homes is what they end up consuming.
Arming her friends, family, and clients with some basic facts about
healthy food and making small adjustments in grocery shopping sounds
simple, but people are often surprised at how affective the basics
can be. They are also amazed at how they overlook the "out
of site - out of mind" concept. Another important issue is
the elimination of bad eating habits in step-by-step manner as one
is slowing learning about new and better healthy food choices. This,
plus physical activity, is the safest and most promising approach
in achieving a healthy life.
