    I have always had the best experience when being in Brad's gym! He is so nice and goes out of his way to make everyone feel comfortable, even if you've never stepped foot in a gym. He also changed up the routine every week so you never know what's coming next! You leave truly knowing that you've acomplishd something while being there. Plus, his is accommodating. to those with children. (ME)πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸΌ Love my gym!!!πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼

    I needed a push to get back in the gym after having my daughter. Brad's 12 week program was exactly what I needed to get my motivation going and not want to just go home and sit on the couch. I now want to go to the gym.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I take each new client under my wing...and spend a lot of time with them. I help them customize the perfect meal plan according to their Height, Frame Size, & Lean Weight. We also start Results Tracking of Bodyfat..BMI..Weight...and Inches lost. 

I then start what I call Shaping U 101 with them. This is where I patiently teach them the correct form and way to do several exercises that most NEW clients have the most trouble with at the start. These are exercises like Squats, Bent Over Rows, Lunges, and several Ab type exercises.

I make sure they feel comfortable and that they get the best training possible. And of course the best Results possible. Whatever it takes! :)

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I take a new continued education test every year to Re-New my National Accredited Certification through NFPT (National Federation Of Professional Trainers) -A Top 10 Nationally Accredited Certification.....I am 14  Years Certified as of March 2017. 

i also have over 15 years experience helping clients with nutrition coaching quite successfully!

Now I also like to add my 35 years of self education....I am 48 years old now...but since the age of 13, I was obsessed with finding answers on the best way to train and the best way to use Nutrition for Total Body Transformation and for best health! I honestly feel or can say...I learned more through my own 35 years of intense research than I have with any certification....maybe that is why I easily passed my Certification test with a 1st class Certification making a 92 on the test! 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Depends on what package is chosen....Semi- Private Rates (1-3) in each session) run as low as $16-$25 per session

1 on 1 Private PT rates run $50 to $60 per session. 

Paid in full packages are rewarded crazy we sell alot of Purchase 6 Months get 6 Months FREE....ask me about these deals...we sell many..many..many of these DEALS! 

How did you get started teaching?

 What or who inspired me to start my own business?

Back in the day, I read about an interview with a businessman who turned 102 years old and was still happily working on his business to that day. He was asked for his advice on how to live a good life and he answered, Ask yourself this question, what do you love to do most? What is the favorite thing you like to do? He was saying that if you are doing something you loved, even if you had to work at it for 12 hours or more everyday, it would not seem like work to you.

He ended telling the interviewer to take that favorite thing you love and figure out a way to make it your own business. That resonated well with me, so I took his advice and never looked back! It was the best decision I ever made - I have loved every minute of it!
