Starting out as a scrawny 125lb kid at 6’2,” Brad took up weight training at the tender age of fourteen and ended up a 220lb competitive, drug-free, natural bodybuilder several years later. Now, armed with both knowledge and muscle, he has helped countless individuals domestically and abroad.
Brad is also a University Lecturer with a Master’s degree in Kinesiology and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) with the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
Brad is a veteran of the Air National Guard and proudly served on several deployments including Afghanistan in 2003. He served a total of 21 years. However, upon coming home from Afghanistan, Brad was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma (2004), an immune system cancer which both his brother and father were survivors of prior. He went through nine months of chemotherapy before a full recovery and eventually found his way back to the bodybuilding stage.
Brad writes for several sites on the subjects of training, nutrition, supplementation, motivation, and everything cool. He also runs a personal blog, Rebuilt. With a “keep it simple” mindset, drug-free approach, and ability to help people go from scrawny to brawny, Brad’s experience, education, and know-how have influenced people from all walks of life.
Brad has a son with his wife Courtney.
