Why Fitness Pro Adam Rosante Is All About Smoothies (and Cocktails)


It’s hard to imagine how Adam Rosante gets any sleep at night, given his many endeavors as a wellness pro.

Rosante is a personal trainer to celebrities, the creator of The People’s Bootcamp, the author of The 30-Second Body, an ambassador for Target’s C9 fitness apparel and Pure Protein, and much more.

It takes a lot to fuel that kind of fit life, which is why Rosante is all about making simple, fast, nutrient-packed smoothies, which he shares in his newest free E-book, Super Smoothie Revolution.

Of course, as a proponent of balance above all, you’re also likely to find him sipping a cocktail or glass of wine with friends to unwind in the evening. We asked him about those smoothie-to-sidecar sipping habits and the many other ways he lives a nutritious life, here.

How Does Adam Rosante Live a Nutritious Life?

If you had to name your healthy diet, what would you call it? Balance. Or…The-Italian-American-Kid-from-Long-Island-Who-Loves-to-Eat’s-Guide-to-Eating-Well.

What’s your go-to breakfast? One of my smoothies or scrambled eggs with a side of avocado, kimchi, and roasted broccoli.

Your go-to workday dinner? Grilled grass-fed steak or grilled fish and whatever green veggie looks freshest. When you cook simply, it doesn’t take long. Half the meals I post on Instagram take me about 15 minutes to make.

The snack you always have with you when traveling? Pure Protein vanilla whey and powdered organic greens in a shaker bottle. I just add water and I’m good to go. Super clean protein and key micronutrients to keep me strong, mentally sharp and firing on all cylinders.

What do you eat before and after a workout? I work out first thing in the morning and will either have an apple or some branched chain amino acids. After, I’ll have either a smoothie with some oats thrown in or the breakfast I described above.

Other than water, what do you sip regularly? Green tea. And I love a glass of wine or a nice cold beer. Plus, my wife makes the most incredible cocktails you’ve ever tasted. Like I said, balance.

How often do you exercise, and what’s your workout of choice? 5 times per week. Strength training with weights and sprints.

How do you stay active outside the gym? Surfing, rock climbing, kayaking, swimming in the ocean and bay. And chasing around my two little nieces.

What does it mean to you to “live consciously”? To be mindful of the effect your actions have on others and the world in general. To be fully present in every moment of your life and always leave people happier and more resourceful than when you met them.

What’s your weirdest healthy habit? If I have any, I don’t realize it. Uh-oh! You may want to ask my wife.

Which healthy habit do you wish you had more time for? Volunteering.

Meditation or massage? Meditation.
A hot shower or a soothing bath? Hot shower.
Almond butter or peanut butter? Peanut butter.
Coffee or tea? Cold brew iced coffee.
A long run outside or a dark spin class? Short, fast sprint.
