Brandon is a tough trainer, he will kick your butt and make it burn, but he will also make sure that you have the proper form. He will also teach you ways to modify the exercise and will spend as much time needed to teach you proper mechanics and provide you the tools and education necessary for you to achieve your training goals.

After 3 weeks of training with brandon I have went from 200 pounds to 185. I’m happy with the exercise and diet he has put me on. He listened to my goals and created a plan to help me achieve them. I could not be any happier with the results so far.


I’ve worked with Brandon throughout the summer and I’m already seeing a lot of growth in hockey and also my lifting and body composition. I gained 10 pounds while maintaining a 9% body fat. Brandon’s taught me a lot about ways to properly lift and helped understand how it all works.


I was trained by Brandon while we were deployed to Afghanistan together, at the very beginning of his career. He was fantastic to work with because he knew so much about the human body and how each part connected to the next one, but he never seemed like he was a “know it all”. His attitude makes you feel like you can achieve the goals you’ve set, and learn a lot along the way. Because of the knowledge, and confidence I developed through his help, I have held a high level of physical fitness and overall strength, and a love of growing physically for years. Highly recommend!!

Brandon is a well rounded leader with the ability to inspire those around him. I worked with Brandon in the Marine Corps in Okinawa, Japan. Outside of work Brandon took it up on himself to help me reach my fitness goals. We would be meet at least 5 days a week at the gym. Brandon would arrive with a pre-planned workout regiment that was challenging and effective. I was grateful to have a mentor like Brandon who truly cared about my fitness goals!

Brandon is one of the best. I trained with him when I was at my most obese, he was knowledgeable, kind but firm, and very supportive every step of the process. He knew what I could and could not handle so he made the workouts exactly where they needed to be at my fitness level. A few short months later I was down 40lbs and had gotten my life back. I honestly couldn’t recommend anyone more. I am very thankful for this man!
