About Bryant

I spent several years working with the Georgia Southern Athletics Strength and Conditioning staff as well as the physical therapy clinic at Riverstone Medical in Blue Ridge Ga. I also have experience in youth/elderly training, sport, and exercise psychology counseling, as well as some addiction/substance abuse counseling. I spent the last year or so sporadically traveling the country and living in California for a short time. Along with my passion for helping people, I am passionate about developing personal and social relationships with people. Whitewater sports, outdoor activities, live music and actively learning new things are also great passions of mine among many others.


 


 


 


Originally from Blue Ridge Georgia, I went to Fannin County High where I was a two-time all-state selection in football. I signed a full scholarship to play football at Georgia Southern University where I was a part of 2 Southern Conference Championships and 1 Sun-Belt Championship, although I was sidelined the last 3 years of my career due to injury. I spent the next couple of years earning my Bachelors in Exercise Science with an emphasis in coaching, nutrition, and psychology, as well as my CSCS (Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist).


 


 


 


During my undergrad I made Deans List multiple times and Athletic Honor Roll.  I also work as a whitewater raft guide on the Ocoee River in Polk County Tennessee where the '96 Olympic kayaking trials were held.

Bryant does an excellent job pushing clients to work harder to meet their goals while being mindful of any physical restraints. He is knowledgeable about how the muscles and nerves interrelate and has provided guidance outside the gym on stretches to relieve back and neck strain.

Dawn A.

Bryant is knowledgeable about the human body. As an instructor, he pushes me to be stronger and to work harder for better fitness. Soft spoken, nice guy.

Catherine M.

I have worked out with Bryant a handful of times. No session has been the same. He incorporates numerous exercises and stretches. Bryant is highly knowledgeable and easy to work with, while providing a challenge. I already see results. I highly recommend Bryant.

Michael D.

Bryant has the potential to be a great personal trainer because he is extremely knowledgeable about the physical body and receives feedback well. He listens to the client and responds accordingly while still encouraging you to finish a set and keep good form. Bryant gives me confidence that he can train me effectively without incurring injury due to his education and understanding of how the body performs.

Bryant has been working with me for the past eighteen months. I have fibromyalgia and osteo-arthritis and therefore I have some severe limitations on what I am allowed to do. Bryant is very good in adapting my workouts to my limitations and making them as "different" as they can be also; this way they do not get boring and repetitive. We have to be careful because of the fibromyalgia since it does not take very much to overtax the muscles and it requires a lengthy time for me to get over an injury or sprain. But Bryant has a very good knowledge of anatomy since he possesses NCAA Certification. I have complete faith in him as a personal trainer.
