Brad Cooley Growing up, Brad played just about every sport out there, but soccer was the sport he chose to play for 15 years. With all of these sports comes the daily regimen of intense conditioning; cardio, strength, speed and agility, and the beginnings of a proper diet (or so we thought as kids/teens). This training and education became a passion and a daily routine for him, which led to joining the Navy as a Medic. While in the Navy, he completed his BSBA and his personal training certifications. After serving his six honorable years, he pursued an orthopedic medical supply position and continued training on the side. Training and the fitness industry took precedence soon after and he joined an international fitness marketing company to begin traveling the world helping independent gym owners become successful. Two years later, the national sales position for a new product to the fitness industry became available. Helping develop MYZONE from its inception, it has since been installed in hundreds of fitness centers worldwide as an incredible training and motivation tool. Brad is also a Krankcycle Master Trainer and often travels the world with Johnny G to present and train on the Krankcycle. Ned Matheson A personal trainer for the previous 11 years, Ned began this career with 24 Hour Fitness leaving there in 2011 to create a personal trainer business all his own. He is certified through the “National Academy of Sports Medicine” as a personal trainer and “Performance Enhancement Specialist.” He has also attained credentials through “National Council of Strength Fitness,” “National Federation of Professional Trainers” and he is TRX certified. His wide range of knowledge and experience has enabled him to build a clientele ranging from children, to NFL players, to senior citizens. Ned attended and graduated from Colorado State University in 2003 with a Bachelor’s in Anthropology. Realizing shortly thereafter he thrived when challenged both mentally and physically, he determined to become a wild land firefighter with Larimer County Sheriff’s Department for the next 4 years. It was here that Ned began running the physical training program for the rest of his crew which eventually led him into a career as a personal trainer. Outdoor activities, sports and fitness have always been a priority and avenue to happiness for him. He played lacrosse all through high school and college, has been challenging himself with various forms of resistance training for two decades, is often camping, hiking, and whitewater rafting and now plays competitive and recreational volleyball year-round. Bringing others this same sense of joy he has found in staying physical active is a passion he will hold throughout his life.
