A personal trainer is looking to help more people suffering from medical conditions.
Former Army soldier Adam Foster has been performing extensive charity and outreach work with the Newcastle Fibromyalgia Support Group.
Over the last five years, the 26-year-old has been working with fibromyalgia, CFS, ME, hypermobility and associated syndromes relating to chronic pain and fatigue.
He began showing an interest after being injured while on a tour of duty with the Household Cavalry regiment, leaving him with extensive scar tissue on the back of his neck.
Adam, a keen bodybuilder in his spare time, found that working out in the gym and carrying out exercises helped to alleviate his symptoms.
And now he is looking to help those in the area suffering from the conditions.
Adam offers a free exercise class every Tuesday at 10.30am, a Spidercise gym and is supported by a specialist masseuse.
Adam, from Houghton-le-Spring, is currently in talks with the Fibromyalgia UK and the European Network of Fibromyalgia Associations regarding his project.
He is also looking to develop workshops throughout the UK to help sufferers understand their trigger points and develop their own pain management routines.
