In this episode Brad shares his journey of overcoming addiction and finding wellness through fitness, nutrition, and personal development.

  • Brad shares his downward spiral into addiction and later recovery, which spanned six treatment centers between 2005 and 2012 and 17 bookings in the county jail (5:37)

Brad’s passion for the fitness industry has been ingrained into his life since he was 14 years old. The minute he picked up my first fitness and nutrition magazine, he knew that it was what he was born to do. Brad became NASM and ACE certified so he could understand all parts of fitness and nutrition. He wanted to absorb as much as he could to feel my best and share my passion with others. He has since gone on to acquire numerous certifications, including NCI, Oracle applied science, and the Well-Fit mentorship. This passion lifted Brad from hsi darkest times and helped him overcome a decade of addiction to drugs and alcohol, which resulted in his sobriety. Brad’s sobriety date is November 20th of 2012, and for that, he am eternally grateful.

Fitness, to him, isn’t just about physical appearance. Fitness is a lifestyle that is continuously evolving. He knew that he needed to build a place where we educate others on living healthy lives—no quick fixes or fad diets, just honest accountability, hard work, and real results that last. Brad opened the doors to Key Nutrition in March 2017 and has never looked back. He genuinely want his clients and my team to live healthy lives and understand how food and fitness can change your life for the better. We get one life, and he wants everyone to live their best. Brad now operates a course called The Next Level Experience, where he helps individuals level up in all areas of their life in an intimate, intense, and interactive course. He am not only a fitness addict; he is also a dad to his sweet baby boy Dominic Jensen and a dog dad to two fur babies, Champion and Chief.
