I’ve been training with Coach Brando for 4 years. I came to him with almost no understanding about how to properly train my body to get the results I wanted. I was doing all cardio and no weight training. Since working with Brian I’ve lost 5% body fat, and because of the muscles I’ve gained I’ve been able to increase my caloric intake by over 400 calories a day. As my physical goals change Brian works with me to craft a program to achieve the results I am looking for. He constantly pushes me out of my comfort zone and I still surprise myself with how strong I have become!

Kerianne K.

The close personal attention that coaches give us during group classes (is the best part about B-Fit Lifestyle). The strong emphasis on proper form has allowed me to gain strength and increase my lifts in a pretty short amount of time. I’m definitely more energized throughout the day, especially since I do my workouts in the morning. Unwind has been a pretty big change in my routine which has been huge for muscle recovery. It’s something that I had been neglecting for the most part before B-Fit, because I didn’t have any sort of knowledge base about it. But it’s been really helpful so far and an awesome addition to my fitness routine.

Jake G.

Brian takes the time to focus on everyone’s skills individually, no matter how big the class size. He doesn’t pressure you to do more than you can handle, but he helps you discover how strong you actually are. I’ve become more confident with kettlebell training and increasing weight, and I’ve learned how to push my body to do more. The B-Fit crew has become a family that motivates and cheers each other on, and that’s all because of Brian! He rocks!
