As a follow-up to the explosive revelations made by Adam last week during his weekly HooplaHa Joy Story LIVE STREAM (watch the full LIVE STREAM video here), this new Joy Story feature video digs deeper into Adam's troubled past. He shares the inspirational and motivational steps he took to leave the past in the past for good.

Adam Keller's story with HooplaHa began when he set out to propose to his boyfriend Jared Marinelli, in secret, flash-mob fashion. They both work as JoyRide cycling instructors, so it was only fitting that Adam planned this top-secret, flashmob proposal in the form of an expertly choreographed, cycling class with all their family and friends in attendance! Fast-forward to a year later and Adam & Jared are engaged and planning for their wedding day.

But Adam's life hasn't always been such a smooth ride. Adam reveals the full story of his dark past with alcohol and drugs and how he has overcome it. Adam hopes that in sharing his story, others will find the courage and perseverance to overcome their adversity too!

This HooplaHa original video was produced by Tracy Chevrier, shot by Yura Makarov, and edited by Varya Rookwood. To see more of Adam and Jared and the Joy Story series, check out our YouTube channel and our Facebook page!
