About Bee The Wellness
Bee The Wellness is an innovative personal coaching company created by Adam and Vanessa Lambert and based in California. This couple has been living and working in the Paleo world for nearly 10 years, helping to educate and empower clients on their personal journeys to optimal health.
A Battalion Chief for the third largest fire department in the United States, Adam Lambert has made it the focus of his career to identify and address the specific physical, cognitive, and emotional demands placed on fire personnel and shift workers.
Lambert’s breadth of experience in the fire service has provided him with a unique vantage point from which he has built a progressive approach to address those needs. Author of the popular firefighter fitness blog www.fitforduty.org, his groundbreaking review on nutrition and heat related illness was recently published in the State of California annual Focus on Safety. Heralded as a thought leader in the field, Adam was recruited as a contributing editor by The First Twenty, a web based wellness program designed for the fire service.
In addition, Lambert is recognized as one of the leading strength and conditioning coaches in the fire service. Certified under the National Strength and Conditioning Association, Lambert spent 6 years training and coaching under the tutelage of Robb Wolf, author of The Paleo Solution and owner of Norcal Strength and Conditioning. As a Firefighter Olympics and Crossfit Games competitor, Adam is no stranger to performance athletics.
Adam believes that achieving optimal health and performance must include a foundation of fundamental nutrition and fitness principles but is by no means a one size fits all approach. To that end, he is committed to helping people find a nutrition and fitness strategy that meets their individual needs.
A health and fitness enthusiast since childhood, Vanessa came into coaching quite accidentally. As a promising young gymnast, her coach asked if she would instruct the introductory classes at her gym. Her natural love of the movement was only deepened by sharing it with others. There began her basis of learning to coach and her understanding of the unique importance of the teacher student relationship.
No stranger to competitive sport, Vanessa played soccer, basketball, swam competitively, and was also co-captain of her cheerleading squad. In her early 20’s she moved to Maui to improve her surfing practice and became one of the first female surf instructors in the Hawaiian islands and a true force in the water. She and Adam were also an integral part of the CrossFit NorCal team that took third place in the affiliate games in 2009.
Throughout her life she continued to evolve her diet in order to better fuel her performance and her busy schedule. In fact, Vanessa had already embraced the Paleo diet when she began training with Robb Wolf as a client. She had seen the dramatic benefits of doing so and was delighted to find out that not only did her coach agree, but he was one of the thought leaders on the subject. It would be her years at Norcal Strength and Conditioning training under the tutelage of Robb and his wife Nicki, that her ancestral wellness practice would deepen.
After relocating to Los Angeles to pursue her music career, Vanessa was introduced to Mark Sisson. Working closely with Mark at the Primal Blueprint headquarters over four years, Vanessa developed the personal coaching program, Primal’s luxury retreat vacations, and has become a staple at the PrimalCon events where she and Adam coach the fundamentals of weightlifting and gymnastics.
Vanessa feels truly blessed for having worked with the best and the brightest in the ancestral health world. This experience is what motivated her to co-create the Bee The Wellness program with her husband Adam. These days, her focus is to help as many people as possible become the very best version of themselves.
