Brad Sims, CPT
Brad Sims is a National Academy of Sports Medicine (www.NASM.org) Certified Personal Trainer, Corrective Exercise Specialist and Spartan Group X Coach. What is corrective exercise? Well, after an assessment of your movement, Brad is able to isolate and improve potential muscle weaknesses or imbalances that have been caused by abnormal movement patterns, past injuries or surgeries. He relies on an evidence based program developed by NASM, whose creator, Dr. Michael Clark, is a physical therapist and sports physician.
Brad has been physically active most of his life, trying various disciplines from competitive swimming to Muay Thai, from inline skating to kiteboarding. He is serious about mixing up interests to keep things fresh and believes this will benefit you, the client as well! He started weightlifting in 1994 and has never looked back since. He has learned quite a bit in his nearly 3 years in the fitness industry and keeps his passion for learning alive by taking new courses and refreshing his past knowledge as well. He even works part-time at The Moment Institute as a physical therapy aide to stay on the cutting edge. Brad has taken his skills and extensive education and has translated them into a unique training style that appeals to a wide variety of individuals seeking self-improvement. Brad works with everyone from professional athletes to weekend warriors to stay-at-home moms. With his adaptive training style he is able to create goal-specific programs tailored to the individual’s needs.
Brad’s latest specialty is his Spartan SGX (Spartan Group Exercise) certification, which introduces a variety of training methods to make workouts both challenging and fun, and to prepare his more adventurous students for running their first obstacle race; the ultimate challenge! Brad is only the 5th coach in New Jersey to achieve this certification.
