Expert Bio

Hello, my name is Coach Brian and I am a seasoned professional in the field of health and wellness. I specialize in helping entrepreneurs overcome poor health challenges through science-backed nutrition and lifestyle transformations, enabling them to excel in both their family and business lives. From a young age, I have been actively involved in sports, starting with Track & Field in high school and continuing into my college years. Running has taken me on countless adventures, including participating in multiple marathons such as Boston and Marine Corps, as well as racing Olympic distance triathlons. In 2005, I graduated with a degree in Exercise Science and Nutrition, a field that I am truly passionate about. I have always enjoyed working with people and helping them transform their bodies and ultimately their lives. I firmly believe that a combination of exercise and nutrition, along with improving lifestyle habits and behaviors, is the most effective approach to achieving lasting change. My career began in a traditional gym, where I spent six years as a personal trainer and group exercise instructor. During this time, I had the privilege of working with hundreds of individuals who were juggling busy schedules, families, and careers. Through this experience, I gained a deep understanding of how to support and guide people in balancing exercise, nutrition, and overall well-being. Motivated to make a greater impact, I decided to open my own gym. Over five years, I owned and operated two CrossFit gyms, working with thousands of clients. During this time, I honed my coaching skills and achieved a significant milestone by taking Betsy Finley to the CrossFit Games, where she became a CrossFit World Champion. After selling my gyms, I decided to focus my coaching abilities on helping others understand nutrition, fitness, and overall health to design their ideal lifestyles. Through my work with clients, I have continuously sharpened my skill sets and capacities to help individuals meet their health and weight loss goals. As a seasoned professional, I am dedicated to providing high value and impact in my clients' lives. I am passionate about serving driven professionals who have excelled in their business endeavors but have neglected their health along the way. I understand the demands of a busy lifestyle, as I have been married for almost 20 years and have four children. In my free time, my family and I love to travel, and we are on a mission to visit all 50 states (we have already checked off 42) as well as explore international destinations such as the UK, Costa Rica, and Finland. If you are ready to prioritize your health and achieve your goals, I am here to serve you. Let me help you transform your life and reach the level of success you have always desired.
