Adrienne Halasz-Szabo - Fitness & Pilates Instructor, Junior Instructor

Adrienne is a proud member of the NRG Team since November 2015. Born in Budapest Hungary, Adrienne started her sporty life very early with artistic gymnastics; two years later she got scouted by the Hungarian Dance Academy and was selected to part of Hungary’s best ballet school. I literally grew up within the walls of the Hungarian Opera House. Adrienne finished school at the State Ballet Institute and got a Dance Theatre Artist Diploma. Injuries changed my life and I have been working in dance studios as well as fitness clubs ever since.

My profession is my passion and I love to help people find their way to a better health, as a qualified Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer I do believe in continuous education, reading and constantly updating my knowledge to give the best I can to all NRG members. I teach a range of classes including 20/20/20, X-fit, Barre N' Tone and pilates, I also offer fitness assessments for gym members and am a trainer for the “Fit and Fierce” weight loss program. As a proud mother of three I love to work with children too, parents can meet me weekday afternoons at NRG JUNIOR when I teach Gymnastics for kids.
