Brandon Schram

Celebrity Trainer, Fitness Model, Motivational Speaker

Brandon Schram is a Los Angeles born and raised celebrity coach, fitness model, and motivational speaker. He began his fitness journey at the age of 21, after years of making poor lifestyle choices, such as binge drinking alcohol, and eating unhealthy foods. Brandon’s initial goal was to become healthier, as well as to sculpt a strong and fit physique.

As his physique progresses, Brandon realized fitness didn’t just impact the way he looked, it also improved other areas of his life, such as confidence and relationships with people. Because of this, he became inspired to share his knowledge with others to help them achieve their own fitness transformation.

What started as a simple interest in helping others, eventually turned into a ‘full-blown’ career for Brandon. He’s since gone on to become one of the best coaches, motivational speakers, and fitness influencers from Los Angeles.

This is his story:

“Your odds of becoming a human being were 400 trillion to 1… and you’re here. If nobody has told you today, let me remind you that you matter. You were meant to be here. Appreciate and enjoy it! Let’s live our best lives.”

Turning His Life Around

As the years went by, Brandon became fed up with his lifestyle. He decided to take control of his situation, entering the gym for the first time at 21 years of age.

As Brandon said; “I started my fitness journey at 21 years old, 127lbs of skin and bone. I made a choice to make a change; a choice to be stronger, a choice to live healthier, a choice to be happier.”

Ever since Brandon made the choice to enter the gym, he completely turned his life around. He’s gone on to build a phenomenal physique through years of weight training and healthy diet choices, becoming a renowned celebrity trainer in the process.

The Importance of Fruit

Brandon tries to eat at least two servings of fruit every day. His favorite fruit is cantaloupe or apples. Brandon says, cantaloupe contains a low amount of carbs and is rich in protein and Vitamin A.

Overall, Brandon believes fruit should be a staple of anyone’s diet. According to him, the two main benefits of eating fruits are;

  1. Natural Energy Boost – Brandon says, sugars in fruit combined with the natural fiber help stabilize blood sugar levels. This ensures slow and steady energy supply throughout the day.
  2. Speed up Protein Synthesis – Brandon eats his cantaloupe in the morning with his breakfast as soon as he wakes up. He then eats it again with his lunch or protein shake. Eating cantaloupe two times per day helps speed up the protein distribution to Brandon’s muscles, helping him stay lean, strong, and muscular.

What we can learn from Brandon Schram

Making the First Step

Here’s Brandon’s motivational message for everyone who wants to improve their life; “Quick reminder that you’re never too old, or late to make dreams come true. Some people make it younger. Some people make it older. The only thing that matters is they both made it.

The worst thing you can do is compare your progress to anyone else other than yourself. They’re in their lane, you’re in yours. Focus on you. Make sure you keep progressing and moving forward. If you haven’t started, start taking action! Ideas are a great starting point but they’re worthless without action.” – Brandon Schram
