Brett is a professional in every sense of the word. His knowledge is unmatched and his enthusiasm is addicting. He will train you for any level of fitness challenge you may confront. You can trust that he has your best interest in mind, and you can guarantee he will bring you beyond the limits you thought you had. Without question, training with Brett not only changed my body and increased my performance- he brought out some incredible mental toughness within me. During my time with Brett, I’ve seen him successfully lead elite athletes and the general fitness population. Whether your goal is to compete in a high level athletic competition, run your first 5K, complete an Obstacle Race, or simply improve your nutrition and health- Brett’s programs will get you there!

Pushed Beyond Limits
Mike B.

After searching for a trainer or group leader to help me improve my fitness and health, I found Brett. I am a runner but didn’t really work out more than that. Brett challenged me each week, helping me gain a new fitness level, encouraged me to push through and showed me I could hold my own alongside the others in my group (most were military fit-level). I am happy to say I have been following his guidance for almost 3 years now and am a 7-time Spartan Race finisher (Trifecta in 2015!!). The way he was able to break down different ways to exercise, and fit my lifestyle made me feel as if I accomplished something each week, and could see a change over time. My daughter joined alongside me in the workout sessions, and I saw her confidence grow, along with her health and fitness lifestyle.
