The concept for The Fit Shop® percolated in the head of Adriane Abraham for nearly a decade as she learned the fitness business by apprenticing, training and teaching at other gyms, franchises and exercise studios across the country.
Her idea was spawned ten years ago when Abraham had an epiphany—about her life, her health, her very future – courtesy of a caring trainer at Gold’s Gym in LA who bluntly stated that her lifestyle as it was then would kill her.
His honesty put her squarely at her personal fork in the road, forcing her to make a decision: coast straight off a cliff or finally become the powerhouse she knew she was. A competitive star athlete and marketing genius in Ohio before moving to glitzy Hollywood to become a television producer, Adriane realized she had lost her way. This seminal moment changed her life and became the philosophy and framework for what is now The FitShop.
Thanks to that angel trainer – who became her first mentor – Adriane learned that outer gorgeous often masks a corroded and unhappy interior. Sure, a shiny, sleek Maserati looks great flying down the road (who doesn’t look great at 22?) but when it ends up in the shop because nobody bothered to take care of the engine, who is responsible?
And there it was. Her engine was burned out.
Adriane left show biz, took responsibility for the condition of her body, her soul, her spirit, and it became her core driving force. She chose to make fitness once again not just part of her life, but her living. She got healthy, shadowed her mentor and others and learned the gym business from pail and mop up. Adriane ran the front desk, made the shakes, sold memberships, ran her own boot-camp business in West Hollywood, taught and competed in CrossFit and many more. She created her own training programs, opened her first small training business and became an in-demand star trainer herself.
Adriane then moved around the US, working in different markets to see for herself what others were doing, ultimately landing in Miami. Her new dream – her driving passion – was to create and own a significant fitness business, and everything she did was with that goal in mind. She was hell-bent on developing her skills, assembling all the parts a business needs and creating the right tools to earn the right to help others like her mentor helped her.
The result is TheFitShop, conceived to change and shape healthy, happy lives from the inside out.
It’s no accident that TheFitShop is designed around an auto body shop theme. For Adriane, this made sense. Bodies are like cars— humans are all about mechanics, moving parts, fuel and restoration, both inside and out. Nobody was approaching training in this fashion, and this excited her! She saw a market that was not being served and now had a decade of knowledge and experience to fill this void.
Currently, Adriane is the co-owner of one of the best boutique fitness studios in North Miami and the developer of Fit Shop’s HIIT program. The program includes three signature classes, The Tune-Up, The Burn-out and Supercharge. Her signature class is Tune- Up where, she starts her client’s intense hour with a positive quote, which she calls the Align and Balance of the Hour. The class then powers through Jacked (strength), Shocks (short/fast stations focused on agility and speed) and Rev’s (conditioning circuits with a blend of functional movements).
No where else in the world would Adriane rather be, she feels every footstep she has taken in her life has led her to this very moment and she can’t wait to see what unfolds next. To simply state it, she is beyond blessed and grateful for every experience and opportunity.
