Hey Everyone! Brad here.

I create video courses to help people get into shape and become the best version of themselves. I also share my fitness and travel adventures through my vlog on YouTube and Amazon Prime.

My online courses on fitness and video editing are featured on Udemy and Skillshare.

This website is dedicated to helping you become the healthiest and fittest version of yourself. Take your time to read through these articles to begin the process of transforming your life.

 

My Fitness Story

For all of my 20s, I was unhappy with my body and tried almost every diet, workout regimen, and supplement you could imagine. I’d spend hours in the gym toiling away at the “workout of the week” and jump on the next fad, thinking it would “unlock my genetics” and turn me into an Adonis!

I was wrong and left extremely disappointed.

To be honest, I simply wasn’t happy with my soft-looking body and I didn’t know who to ask or what to read to set me straight. I was sick and tired of spinning my wheels and not getting anywhere with my fitness ambitions.

In October 2014, after finishing all of my flying exams, I decided to put my flying career on the back-burner and spend 100% of my time learning the physiology of building muscle and getting shredded.

I started reading strength training books, scientific research literature, and committed myself to a 5-day per week push-pull-legs training program. In addition, I figured out my calorie and macronutrient targets (which is not difficult to do, in hindsight), and over the period of 8-12 months or so, I began to witness my body transform before my eyes.

In 2016, I started producing online fitness courses on Udemy and Skillshare to share the strategies and tools I used to get into shape.

In 2017, I decided to take my new results to the stage and compete in my first amateur bodybuilding competition. To my surprise, I achieved 1st place in two divisions!

Since my personal transformation, my ambition has been to use my website, fitness courses, and vlog, to help empower people to take control of their bodies and become the best version of themselves.

My Amateur Bodybuilding Competitions

I never in a million years thought I’d stand on stage, half naked with three layers of tan, competing against other guys for the chance to win a vanity contest.

In the beginning, I just wanted to get into shape. But after achieving the transformation of my dreams, I thought to myself: “I wonder what it would be like to get on stage”

In 2017, that curiosity led to competing in four amateur bodybuilding competitions, including the World Titles.

Here is a summary of my stage appearances.
