BarBend Presents: Adams Strong, Episode 1

In Episode 1 of our new profile series, BarBend goes in-depth with Liz and Jay Adams as they prepare for the upcoming CrossFit Regionals (and potentially CrossFit Games) season. Check out the video below for insight into their sibling rivalry, why fitness can be a family affair, and whether Liz’s career as an aspiring rapper has yet to attract any haters.

Born and raised in Rye, New York, Jay and Liz Adams are fitness professionals currently living in NYC. Liz is the Head Coach at ICE NYC, a new CrossFit gym in Southern Manhattan. Jay is the Regional Manager of RhinoCo Fitness and a coach at Reebok CrossFit 5th Ave and CrossFit Union Square. They’ve been training and competing together in CrossFit and other fitness style competitions for nearly five years.
