Adam Lee is a certified personal trainer and blogger. He has a passion for helping others improve their health and fitness, and strives to raise funds for cancer research along the way.
Inspired by his stepfather Jeff’s unwavering resolve as he faced a bleak mesothelioma diagnosis, Adam created Never Give Up, a blog dedicated to improving personal fitness and raising funds to help beat cancer.
Jeff Wahl, an Army veteran, musician and master artisan, embraced a ‘Never Give Up’ mantra during his seven-month battle with mesothelioma. He wrote these words on an index card and taped it to his bathroom mirror, where they served as a daily reminder to keep fighting against all odds.
In remembrance of Jeff, Adam shares the Never Give Up story to motivate people with his stepfather’s positive attitude and determination. He offers fitness classes on the beach in Jacksonville, Fla., and sells Never Give Up T-shirts, donating proceeds toward cancer research.

He has earned several certifications, including International Sports Sciences Association Certified Fitness Trainer (ISSA CFT), National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer (NASM CPT) and cardiopulmonary resuscitation/automated external defibrillator (CPR/AED).
