My favorite client story

I work with a client who is a two time cancer survivor and Who is HIV positive. My client was severely overweight, sedentary and had so little balance that he couldn't get up stairs without walking sideways wile holding a rail. He also had a frozen shoulder from a fall. He couldn't raise his arm above 90 degrees from his waist.

Less than 6 months after beginning training with me, he has full range of motion in his arm and shoulder. Has begun a daily walking program, runs the stairs at the local park, just completed his first 3k run and is a healthy weight.

I have been going to Brady for about 2 yrs. He knows his stuff! He does training full time and has a great passion to help his client's achieve their goals. Its not machines and weights with him, he has you work alot with using your own body weight and can easily do at home as well . He has experience with nutrition and can help answer some questions regarding reaching your goals. Brady keeps it interesting even if its a day you are dreading. When you finish you feel good about yourself.

Brady is an excellent trainer. He pushed me but only to where I needed to go. He is very knowledgeable and always a pleasure to work out with.

Kim W.

Brady is a fantastic trainer! I highly recommend him!

Simone D.

Great trainer. Have trained with him for years and at several locations. Keeps sessions intense, but within non injury limits.

Steve R.

I've trained with Brady for six months. He is knowledgeable and keeps himself informed on all health/physical related literature and trends; he is innovative, yet consistent and ensures that training sessions remain challenging; he is professional, friendly and above all, passionate about his career.

Daniel M.

Brady started working with me two years ago. I am 64 and had broken my arm. He helped me rehab my arm, but also helped me change my diet and taught me the correct way to exercise. Since I began working with Brady I have lost 52 pounds, my waist was 38 and it is now 32. I am walking 5 to 7 miles a day and look forward to going to the gym each week. I am glad I found Brady. I recommend him highly to any one wanting a professional trainer.

David M.

Brady is the best trainer I have worked with. He is fun, energetic, and truly cares about his clients. His personalized workouts create lasting results. I am 6 months pregnant and his workouts have kept me lean and toned. I feel great after a workout session with Brady and know that my body is the in the best shape it can be- thanks to Brady!

Lydia S.

I've been training with Brady for 7+ years. I appreciate that he challenges me, learned how to motivate me (I am not the "scream in my face and I'll do more" kind of person), and has always been understanding of challenges that have come my way. He keeps workouts interesting, new, and safe. I've found him to be very knowledgeable and has always been willing to answer any questions I have and offer recommendations.

Mindy G.

Brady is a ROCK STAR! He is extremely knowledgeable and wicked smart about your body and how to help you obtain your goals! He is sweet, pleasant, kind, flexible and he cares! I recommend Brady to all my friends!

Angel S.

Exceptional and Vigorous. Brady, has been a great trainer for many years not only has he trained me but my sister as well and we have been nothing but satisfied. Thank you for all that you have done. and one last thing Brady isn't only board certified he went to school for this, unlike all the "certified" trainers that indeed only hurt you more than help you. Keep it up!

Cindy M.

Brady Roberts is a great personal trainer. I have a chronic heart condition. Brady designed a fitness program that adressed my health issues. The sessions were never repeats, that kept my interest level up. He is always on time and very reliable. Highly recommended.

John S.

Very knowledgeable and serious. Has helped me with recovery.


When I lived in Houston, I trained with Brady and he helped to get me on the right path both in and out of the gym. He gave me a great diet and workout plans and I achieved my goal. I would recommend him to anyone--anytime!!!

Rick I.

I hired Brady because I had become completely unable to motivate myself to workout. I needed to workout effectively and efficiently. I hate wasting time! Brady is personable, professional, reliable and experienced. Brady prepares workouts that are creative, and challenging and sometimes very difficult. He is attentive to the client and tailors the workout to the individual client. Each of my daughters have trained with him and each of our workouts are different and perfect for each of us. Because Brady focuses on his client, he can make corrections in form that most effectively work the targeted muscle group. I have worked out with trainers in the past. Brady is by far the best!

Phylliss M. C., M.D.

Brady is fantastic. I've been working with him for 2 months and the results are exactly what I wanted. He is attentive, and works with my crazy schedule. He is teaching me proper form, and keeps our workouts fresh and interesting.

Chris Casey

Highly recommend, have used a few trainers through the years and Brady is by far one of the best in the industry!

Jennifer S.

I'm a 27 year old male and have been pretty athletic/in shape most of my life. I trained with Brady for 4 months with the goal to be competition ready at the end of that 4 months. I lost over 20 lbs/8% bf, and gained muscles I have never seen before. It's been years since I've seen my abs that developed and now I never want to wear clothes. Went from a 34" waist down to a 28-29". Even on days I didn't feel like training, he pushed me through some intense workouts. Helped me get my diet on track, coached me through workouts when I was out of town travelling, and was always very responsive whenever I had a question outside of the gym. Brady helped transform my life and my mindset. If I could, I would train with Brady forever.


I’m 63 and have been working with Brady for about two months. When I started I could barely move, much less get up and down off the floor. I had suffered a fall a few months before, and I was dependent on pain medication to sleep or even sit up during the day. Now I am not only able to get up and down, but my energy and enthusiasm for life has returned. I am in no pain. I haven’t taken a pain pill in over six weeks. It’s all because of the stretching, some core training, and a gradual return to the mobility of my pre-accident days. He has really loosened up my joints, and I can move again. My goal is not to regain my 20-year-old body. I just wanted to feel healthy again, and Brady has shown me how to get there. He is not judgmental, and he is very professional. I highly recommend him.

I contacted Brady as a total newbie: I was far from athletic in High School and have not entered a gym or exercised in the intervening 35 years. Brady made me feel comfortable and got me started on a program that has had results I can see and (more importantly) feel. It's not an exaggeration to say that our workouts have had a hugely positive impact on my well-being. I honestly look forward to my sessions with him. He pushes me -- but never too far. He's pragmatic, practical, & full of good advice (though I haven't managed to follow all of it yet). I've seen him working with other folks and have noticed that we're doing totally different things. He appears to design his sessions around each person's abilities (limits?) & needs. He takes his responsibility to his clients seriously. Do yourself a favor and give Brady a call. I'm sure glad I did.

I am a senior, obese man with extreme mobility issues (balance, etc). I knew I wanted to commit myself to getting my mobility back to whattever degree possible, but knew I would need the help from a trainer who was experienced with these types of issues. I did intensive research and found Brady. Brady provided me with a number of references that I contacted -- all of them gave Brady glowing recommendations and how much he had helped them to achieve their goals. After hearing these reviews and knowing that my road to achieve my goals would take some time, I began my work with Brady. immediately. In 4 months I have seen a dramatic improvement in some of my functional abilities like being able to get out of a lower level chair, or being able to bend over to pick something up I dropped... these may seem like small changes, but for me they are monumental. I am impressed with Brady's knowledge and trust his guidance to help me get where I want to be. I highly recommend him if you are considering working with a trainer.

Maurice H.

I would highly recommend Brady to anyone looking for a trainer, he is professional, approachable and encouraging. I look forward to every workout I have with him!

Brady Roberts is outstanding because he has superior knowledge of the body and how it works. He is able to diagnose problems and help you solve them. In addition to experience, he has a college degree in kinesiology. He is talented with all ages from teenagers to seniors. After he knows your fitness goals, he will devise a plan to help you achieve them. He creates individual plans for each of his clients - "one size does not fit all." He is kind, caring, patient and always willing to repeat instructions. I'm one of Brady's senior clients (76). My goals are stability, balance, strength, and building bone density. My improvement has been remarkable


After trying diet after diet and looking into laser lipo I decided to seek out a personal trainer. That's when i decided to hire Brady. He was quick to respond and thorough in addressing my questions and concerns. I'm 62 and was recovering from minor injuries. Brady has been a great fit for me. I don't like routine and I get bored with my workouts, but Brady always makes it interesting and pushes me further... after 3 months I'm seeing great results... and I will continue to use him as a Trainer for a while. Thanks Brady


Brady is a phenomenal trainer. After the first session I could tell he had worked with many people and at the same time looked at me as an individual client with my own goals and concerns. Needless I say I was impressed and that was only on the first day. Each session he continued to demonstrate his knowledge and expertise that sets him apart from so many of the trainers that plain and simply don’t know what they’re doing. He helped me strengthen my knee and het back to squatting. My workouts haven’t been the same after working out with Brady. I used to go in the gym and wonder if I was doing enough. That level of intensity was missing and Brady helped me find it.


I have worked with Brady over several months via Skype. Excellent in setting up goals, and routines and offering direction on all topics including nutrition.

Steve B.

Know Brady for 30 years. Second time I have engaged him because I had rotator cuff surgery and hernia surgery over the last 18 months. Asked him to re strengthen my core and we met two days a week for 3 months, month off and now three days a week for 2 months. We work two to four muscle groups at a time and I couldn’t be more pleased. I walk six miles in the park after each section. Highly recommend.


I have been going to Brady since October of 2020. He is always on time and ready for my appointments. I appreciate that he values my time. The workout is always different and challenging. I've improved my form and increased the weight I'm able to lift without really realizing it. He keeps it interesting and it makes me accountable. I recommend him anytime my friends talk about wanting to get fit. I'm very happy with my results and feel like my time and money is well spent. If you want to get in shape, feel better about your health and need some help getting there, he is your guy!

Amanda E.

I have been seeing Brady about 4 months now. In just the course of this short time he has reshaped my workout posture allowing certain muscles in my body to release. In turn it has positively impacted my workouts but more importantly my recovery and mobility. He had given me back the opportunity to do more of what I like to do and be active. Without Brady I would still be to afraid to do certain workouts, but his guidance and advice he transformed those fears into wins.

Mike C.

Brady is such a great trainer! My friend and I come to his sessions once a week, and he comes up with the perfect workouts for our goals, and I have seen huge results since going to him. Highly recommend!

Brittani W.

I’m not one to leave reviews, but feel I should as Brady truly deserves 5 stars! Brady’s workouts are perfect for what I’m trying to accomplish. Brady took the time to find out what I was trying to accomplish and developed a plan for me to meet my goals. He’s very knowledgeable and makes sure you understand and complete the exercises in correct form. Each workout is different and you leave with a full body workout. I highly recommend Brady Roberts!


I'm in my late 30's, so I'm getting to the stage of my life where I'm busiest with personal and professional obligations, leaving less time to work out, which doesn't help when your metabolism is slowing down and you're not recovering from injuries as quickly. Enter training with Brady. The sessions are more than sufficient. He monitors and advises constantly to ensure my technique is perfect and won't result in injuries. Great for accountability and nutrition advice. Outside of sessions, he's a great communicator, so scheduling or rescheduling the next session is a breeze. Highly recommend.

Tim S.

Brady is a skilled and knowledgable trainer, as well as a wonderful and supportive person. I find myself looking forward to our next workout-- which, in my experience, is truly a first. Since our first meeting, Brady has been both engaging and discerning, allowing me to set the pace and goals for our training, while still giving me the additional push I need to improve. Each individual workout is clearly bespoke and carefully tailored to my level of fitness (which seems to increase week by week!). I would highly recommend Brady to anyone who is looking for a trainer in Houston; whatever state you're in, Brady will meet you there and help you improve.


I have been working with Brady for two months. I’ve made really good progress. I am an 80 years old lady with a tendon problem in my left foot and arthritis in my right knee. I have balance problems. I was walking with a foot brace and sometimes a walking stick when I started. I am now doing a 30 minute walk in in my neighborhood unassisted. Brady works around my schedule and is always on time and has giving me a very useful home program.

Was looking for a trainer to work off the COVID 19 (lbs) that I had gained. Started working out with Brady in the fall of 2023. Since then (~4 months) I have lost 25 lbs and labs that my primary care MD all showed significant improvement. Brady provides a fun and challenging workout, is always on time, flexible and very easy to schedule with. He's also a very nice guy. The gym we train at is conveniently located and has a complete set of weights/machines/etc. that you would need if you wanted to get extra workouts in. I think that we'll be meeting the first set of fitness goals that we set pretty soon, so I'm looking forward to setting new ones in a couple of months. Highly recommend.

Paolo M.

Before I was diagnosed with cancer I was very active. Once I completed chemo, surgery and radiation, I wanted to get back to the gym, but I knew I'd need support. I work in corporate fitness and well-being, so I thought finding the right person to help me would be a challenge. Thankfully I found Brady. As a cancer survivor, he understood my health state, limitations and goals better than anyone else could. He knew I'd have high expectations for myself, but found the right balance of challenging me without pushing me past my limits. In a short time working together, I already see improvements in my balance, strength and confidence. He's been a great partner in my recovery.
