The People’s Champ: New Canaan Trainer Bridges Boxing & Fitness
Adam Colberg doesn’t like being hit in the face — an odd trait for a man who has made a living in the boxing ring. “Everyone has a plan until they get hit in the face. That’s not me, that’s Mike Tyson who said that,” said Colberg, seated in the cafe of New Canaan’s Oxygen Fitness, where he works. “I dabble with fighting, but I would never consider myself a fighter. Even though I can move better than a lot of pros, I don’t like getting hit. So I realized at one point I shouldn’t fight, I should train people.” Colberg, who was born in Pennsylvania and grew up in Westport, is one of the country’s premier boxing and fitness trainers and has been featured in Men’s Fitness and Healthy Life Magazine and on HBO, MTV and the History Channel.
