(4 customer reviews)


Categories: ,


No matter if you want to build a lean athletic body, increase your athleticism for a sport, bodybuild, or just increase your everyday functional fitness level Josiah Brannon a NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) certified personal trainer is here to help you accomplish your fitness goals! He uses the scientifically proven OPT model to systematically and safely progress each client to help them accomplish their own unique goals. 


Why Do My Clients Get Results?

Each of my clients are required to fill out a questionnaire before we get started.  This allows me to understand the needs of each client. As a NASM certified personal trainer I will then use this information to set up a custom program based on the OPT model which will enable you to get the best results towards your goals. I like to using the OPT model because it is a safe and efficient way to help you progress towards your goals while staying injury free. Goals cannot be accomplished if your injured, so it is my number one priority to help you stay injury free by helping you fix muscle imbalances and helping you learn proper exercise form. No matter if your goal is to lose fat or to gain muscle I will use NASM scientifically proven techniques and adjust the acute variables to help you get there.
It is important to understand that putting on muscle and losing fat can happen, but is very difficult. For this reason it is often better to focus on one or the other.
I will also help you set SMART goals. These are goals that are Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound. By setting SMART goals we will be able to see consistent progress over time. Which will then lead to being able to set up greater and more difficult goals.
Finally I will help educate you on safe and effective diet, weight loss, and nutritional methods. Weight loss will result if you burn more calories than you eat and weight gain will result if you eat more calories than you burn. Knowing this I will educate you on calorie intake and macronutrient split.  At the end of the day it is up to YOU to choose how often you want to work out. I will then set up a program to work around that. However, I would recommend training at least 3-5 times a week for the best results.

Why Should I get into Fitness?

“Fitness is more than just working out. It is an investment into your future.” First, it is scientifically proven that exercise makes you happier. It decreases the feelings of anxiety, depression, and stress by  increasing the brains sensitivity to serotonin and norepinephrine. These are hormones that relieve the feelings of depression. Exercise also increases endorphins and mental awareness. Second, it helps with weight loss. Being overweight (BMI between 25-29.9) or obese (BMI 30 or greater) is associated with many health risks. It increases the chances of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis, pregnancy complications, and some types of cancer. All of this leads to a shortened life expectancy and a decreased quality of life. Third, it increases your confidence. No matter if you are thin or overweight, exercise and weight lifting will increase your self-esteem as you see your body transform. This increase in self-esteem will allow you to have more confidence to interact with the people around you which will then lead to greater success in your relationships and career. Fourth, it is great for your bones and muscle. Working out will help to strengthen your muscles, which will then make every day task easier. Another added benefit of working out is that it will increase bone density. It is important to have dense bones especially as you age, to help prevent broken bones and osteoporosis. So working out now can help you have a healthier future as you get older. Fifth, and finally working out correctly will help prevent injuries and help you sleep better.  When muscles are weak it leads to unstable joints and improper movement patterns, which then leads to injury. By using NASM’s strength training techniques and fitness assessments I can help you recognize your weak points. This will allow us to strengthen your weak points so that we can get proper movement patterns back, which will then limit your chance of injury. Finally, it has been shown in a study that working out only 150 minutes a week can cause a 65% increase in sleep quality.

What to Expect from In-Person Coaching

After you pay for the In-Person Coaching I will send you  an email confirming payment and which also includes the instructions on how to fill out the new client liability form, client health questionnaire, and history questionnaire. I will need you fill these out.

Once I have reviewed the information I will either contact you by email or schedule a time to meet up with you at the gym. During this meeting I will discuss the goals you have for a workout program with you. Also during this meeting we will do a Fitness Assessment. This Fitness assessment will include checking for muscle imbalances, determine your strength level, and your body stats (height, weight, body fat % or circumference measurements). Each month we will update these stats and see the progress you are making. If you don’t have any more questions, I will then move on to the next step which is creating your custom workout program.

Based on your skill level and the information you have provided me I will use that to build your customized program:

  • I will build it using NASM’s OPT Model so that I can help you systematically and safely progress
  • It will be built around your schedule
  • I will also focus it on the type of exercises you like, which will make it easier to reach your goals

  • I will adjust the variables to help you maximize your time and effort in the gym
    • The number workouts per week
    • Length of time working out
    • The number of rest days between workouts
    • Total number of rest days per week
    • The total Volume which is the number of exercises, sets, and reps
    • Rest intervals (how long you rest between sets/exercise)
    • Type of progressions (which variable changes over time)
    • Rate of progression (the pace at which intensity increases)

Once the custom workout program is created I will then contact you to set up a time to do a training session where I will help you go through your newly designed workout program. I will teach you how to perform the exercises correctly so that you do not get injured. I will also show you how to use the free “Bodyspace App” to track your workouts. You will then start your workout program and begin tracking your workouts. (It will be up to you to  decide how many training sessions you want or need each week or month.) Feel free to contact me anytime during the week with any questions you may have.

At the end of each month of training, I will contact you to set up a training session so that we can take a closer look at your progress. During this training session we will review your the goals and how to adjust the program so that you can keep progressing.

  1. Sara

    Had a great time working with Josiah. He created a custom workout fit just for me. I loved all the combinations he planned and really loved the results! I had been doing multiple workouts prior to our sessions and found more results in 6 weeks than I did in a whole year doing it myself. Josiah was professional and knowledgeable.

  2. Shanna Leech

    When I first started working out with Josiah I was looking for someone to help me with my form and to motivate and push me. I had been working out for a year and instead of getting stronger I felt like I kept injuring myself. Josiah really took the time to help me correct my form and find alternate exercises for me when I had knee pain. He really knows his stuff and I was able to start seeing results after just a couple months that I hadn’t seen in a year working out on my own. I look forward to training with Josiah again. He is awesome I would totally recommend him to anyone looking for a personal trainer

  3. Tim (verified owner)

    I’ve never had a personal trainer and never really thought I needed one. Always gone to the gym, and always done just fine. However, seeing the results that Josiah himself obtained through discipline, knowledge, research, diet, and employing an intelligent workout regime got my attention. Witnessing results like that made me take notice and understand that Josiah knows what he’s doing. Wanting to take my fitness goals to the next level he was hired. He cared about my goals as much as his and took pride in his work. And I can say I was happy with results. Bench improved. Squat improved. Deadlifts improved. Big lifts that I wanted to get bigger. You want to hit your goals? Look no further.

  4. Rob

    Josiah has the skills and character to help you “slay the giants” that continually stand between you and your fitness and weight-loss goals. He helped me lose 16 pounds and increase my muscle mass! I HIGHLY recommend Mile High Muscle for both your fitness and weight-loss goals!
