We are excited to welcome Adam Hollier to the Michigan Fitness Foundation team as the Director of Government Affairs and Community Relations. After graduating from Cornell University, Adam earned a master’s degree in Urban Planning from the University of Michigan. He has served as chief of staff for Michigan State Senator Bert Johnson, worked as a liaison to the City Council for former Mayor Dave Bing, and was Vice President for Hantz Woodlands. He currently serves as a Transportation Officer in the United States Army Reserve.
Adam’s professional background and personal passions are what attracted him to the Michigan Fitness Foundation.
“I wanted to work at a place that shared my values. Fitness is vital to who I am as a person and how I’ve developed. As an advocate, it’s critical for me to believe in the cause. I love being active and encouraging others to do the same.”
To stay active and fit throughout his life, Adam practiced Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Mui Thai, boxing, running, cycling, and played football and ran track at Cornell University. He continues to compete in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and recently took 3rd place at the 2015 International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation Master Senior World Championships.
Adam has been recently featured in the U of M alumni newsletter.
