Adam Goldstein has been leading sold out cycling and yoga classes on both coasts since the early 2000’s. Adam’s passion is to motivate and inspire people to bring out the strongest version of themselves. He wants everyone to leave his class feeling happier, healthier, and stronger than they were before they walked in. An expert cycling and yoga instructor, he began his fitness career at Equinox, later combining both of his passions to co-found West Hollywood’s Up Dog Yoga and Cycling in 2009. Up Dog had a three year run and was taken over by Flywheel Sports where Adam was a founding instructor. With endless amounts of energy and enthusiasm, Adam has gained an extensive following and has been featured on E!, the Los Angeles Times, KTLA, and Angeleno Magazine. He taught the first class at Rise Nation and could not be happier to be a part of the climbing movement.
