The only way to do great work is to love what you do. My name is Brandon Brennan. I was born in the suburbs of New York. I graduated from Pennsylvania State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Kinesiology Movement Science. Since I was young, my passion in life has been to make people feel good and to fuel peoples’ souls with positive energy. Being a business owner has been my calling in life. I have always been a leader; whether it was watching out for my two sisters growing up, being captain of the football team throughout high school, or protecting kids from being bullied. After college, I got accepted into Physician Assistant school. After one semester, I realized this profession was not for me—I wanted changes peoples’ lives through exercise, nutrition, and motivation. I did not want to heal people through medication. I wanted to help people live a holistic lifestyle.

I became passionate about fitness after I went through my own journey. In college, I gained 30lbs. It was a low point in my life. It effected my energy, confidence, and health. I eventually said enough was enough and I started getting my mind right through listening to motivational speakers and meditation. After making this change, I never turned back—I trained 5 days a week, completely revamped my diet, and only gave myself one cheat meal a week. By doing so, I lost those 30lbs. My life completely changed after that transformation. This experience reaffirmed my belief that any goal was achievable in life if you want it bad enough and if you make it a priority. I, then, realized that I wanted to start my own small group personal training business. In the past 10 years, I have changed hundreds of peoples’ lives for the better. I am now the proud owner of Get Fit Academy in Boca Raton, Florida. Get Fit Academy is a one-stop fitness shop offering classes and private personal training. We offer Strength/Conditioning, Hot Yoga/Pilates, Kickboxing, and more.

My goal is to expand Get Fit Academy across the country to change the lives of people nation-wide — to get peoples’ minds right. I also aspire to publish my own personal journey book and host motivational talks across the country. I am blessed that I can impact peoples’ lives for the better and will continue to do this for as long as I live. LESGO!
