I am passionate about helping others to achieve their fitness/lifestyle goals. I work with all age groups, and have worked with ages 6-82. Throughout your fitness journey I am available not only in our sessions but also via text/phone/or email. I will work with you one-on-one, couples, family or group training up to five people. I do travel from Palm Beach to Miami train my clients. Training can be done at a location of your choice. Whether you choose to workout at your home, office, community gym, a park or the beach, I can make it happen! If you prefer to travel to me I do have a private gym that we can train at.
During your training with me I do focus on proper form, alignment and breathing in order to optimize every session and make sure you get the best workout. If I see you are not doing something correct I will stop you and we will focus on proper technique. Each training session will be different based on each individuals personal goals. Sessions are 1 hour or 40 minutes and the amount of days per week will depend on each individuals goals. The more sessions per week determine the effectiveness of the results.

My favorite client story
"I am an 82 year old male. Prior to training with Brandon Mercado I was physically restricted by difficulty walking, spinal stenosis, arthritis in my back and knees.
I started training with Brandon Mercado three months ago and the results have been outstanding. His knowledge and expertise in the proper exercises are outstanding.
My back pain and knee pain are gone and my overall strength has noticeably increased.
I walk normally and have not difficulty stepping off a curb which I had a problem with before training with Brandon Mercado.
I look forward to continuing to work with Brandon as he embarks on his new venture.
He has the highest recommendation that I could possibly offer."

Brandon has been my personal trainer for several months now and I have been very pleased with Brandon’s style of training along with my outstanding results. Brandon’s style is very straightforward yet can be tailored to suit the needs for persons of any age. Brandon demonstrates each exercise and he consistently provides feedback as to how I am doing each exercise and what to be aware of so that I can concentrate on maximizing my growth and not injure myself during the process. What I have really appreciated about Brandon is his ability to take the time to understand my physical capabilities, to understand prior injuries that I have had, where I might have muscle soreness after a workout, etc. I would strongly recommend Brandon as a personal trainer. I am confident in his ability to help a client reach/exceed their personal goals. He also has a very friendly, non-intimidating style that has made the training sessions enjoyable, while challenging!

Brandon is highly knowledgeable, all sessions were designed to meet my personal goal! I would recommend him to anyone looking to make a positive lifestyle change.
Brandon is professional, enthusiastic and wonderful at what he does. He trained me in my living room with no equipment. He meets you where you are physically and modifies exercises to your needs and wants, like any professional should. I would (and have) recommended Brandon to anyone looking for someone who loves what they do and are looking for a healthy lifestyle change.
One session is all it takes to be totally hooked on Brandon's super-positive, ready-to-work attitude! Brandon has impressed me with his professionalism and great sense of customer intuition since he first sent me a message. Unlike other trainers who messaged, he didn't send an aggressive, overly-salesy message. He sent me a very informative and reassuring message where he outlined exactly how things would work if I wanted them to. I continue to be so impressed with Brandon. He shows up twice a week armed with all sorts of equipment and I find his energy and positivity wonderfully contagious. He's kind, courteous, friendly, professional, a great communicator, he's a hero when I need help pushing through an exercise, and he always takes a moment to explain exactly what we're doing and what it's going to effect. Highly recommend!
I started working with Brandon in the summer to train for my military service starting in late fall. He is everything I could ever ask for in a trainer! He is very personable and delivers professional instruction without any “gym-timidation”. He has tailored every work out to meet my fitness goals and easily modifies the intensity to meet or challenge my capabilities. As his company name suggests, Health is Wealth, Brandon not only focuses on the workout at hand but also provides helpful coaching on how to best improve your overall health which will improve your fitness performance capability. With his help I am miles ahead of where I would be on my own. Thank you Brandon!
Brandon is extremely patient and knowledgeable. I went in not knowing much about transforming my body at the gym and now I feel stronger and confident to develop my own routine. He will teach what to do and why you're doing it. By the time you're done you will have a better understanding of your own body. He's also a great support system and will get the done with amazing results!
Great trainer, great communication and fun workouts!
We only meet now and it’s been great! I’m happy with my selection.
I’ve met many trainers in the past, but Brandon is the one that made a difference on me. He is very consistent, and loves his job which is very important when working with a trainer. He is very goal oriented when training you, and at the same time works with my style of work out with his added expertise. For example, I want cardio in my training, so he adjust to request and always applies knowledge into my training. Hoping to get closer to my goal, and can’t thank Brandon enough for getting me closer.
Brandon is a really great trainer and motivator. He has shown me I do not need to be in a gym or studio to get a great workout. He pushes me in a,great way. He is very knowledgeable. I know he will help me to reach my goals. I highly recommend!
We Are from the Netherlands and spent 10 weeks per year in lighthouse point. We met Brandon and he did a great job to prepare my son for his field hockey season. He improved big time due to het relax and professional training he got from Brandon.
Brandon is fantastic! I knew I needed a trainer to get me motivated and now I finally feel like I can achieve my goals. The workout was hard but fun and Brandon made me feel really great about what I was accomplishing even when I felt like I was an out of shape slug. On top of that, Brandon is an exceptionally genuine and good human being. I'm really looking forward to my next session!
I highly recommend Brandon. He has been working with me for a few weeks now and I definitely feel a difference. Brandon makes sure I am doing the exercises correctly and he will stop and show me in slow motion. I can feel the difference once I do the set correctly. He constantly reminds me to breathe and do it properly. He is very professional and will contact me after our session to see how I am feeling and make other recommendations for the week. Hi price point is affordable and does allow me to train more than once a week.
Very professional and dependable.
One session is all it takes to be totally hooked on Brandon's super-positive, ready-to-work attitude! Brandon has impressed me with his professionalism and great sense of customer intuition since he first sent me a quote. Unlike other trainers who quoted, he didn't send an aggressive, overly-salesy message. He sent me a very informative and reassuring message where he outlined exactly how things would work if I wanted them to. He offers a massively discounted first session, so it was a no-brainer for me to at least try things out with him. I continue to be so impressed with Brandon. He shows up twice a week armed with all sorts of equipment and I find his energy and positivity wonderfully contagious. He's kind, courteous, friendly, professional, a great communicator, he's a hero when I need help pushing through an exercise, and he always takes a moment to explain exactly what we're doing and what it's going to effect.

Always a great workout that is targeted at certain body parts or whole body. Results can be seen and felt!
I have been working with Brandon for a couple of months now and I definitely have seen results. He comes to my house twice a week and the workouts are always different and great. He does push me but that is a good thing. He is always texting me to see how I am doing and to remind me to get my cardio in and to keep up on my nutrition. He also does not wait for me to call or text him about scheduling an appointment, once a week he always texts me to ask what days and time I want so I don't miss out. He is very motivated to see me succeed and it shows in his enthusiasm.
Brandon is such a professional and expert in his field. Nothing fancy required he can teach you with just your body, or with whatever equipment and machines you have or want to use. It is such a pleasure to work with someone so passionate about his career and to finally SEE RESULTS! I would love to recommend Brandon to anyone looking for change!
Brandon traveled to my area and we trained in a local park. The workout was excellent. Brandon takes his time with you and really focuses on your goals. I highly recommend him.
