About this pro

How does your service stand out?

As a former professional baseball player, I have spent years learning from the best in the world as a client. Having such extensive experience on the other side of the coin helps me as a coach be more attentive to my clients needs, understand how my clients need to be coached, and directly understand my clients concerns

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

My favorite part of what I do is not necessarily when someone hits a new PR or achieves a goal; don't get me wrong, those things are awesome, but my favorite part of my job is seeing how people carry themselves differently when they are training and improving. I love seeing the self-confidence in their stride and posture, hearing assertiveness and command in their voice. I have an opportunity to change someone's life, that's what I love about my job.

    The best in STL
    If you are looking for a place to workout, then I highly suggest Stone Strength Systems. Brad is very knowledgeable and can help you perform better whether you are a beginner or experienced lifter.

    Highly recommended
    Brad with Stone Strength Systems provides strength training for all levels of fitness in an organized, systematic fashion. He really focuses on proper technique and injury prevention, which unfortunately is not always the norm with other training programs I have encountered. He is personable and already within a month I have seen great improvements!

    Great Trainer!
    Brad is a wonderful trainer, even though I'm a terrible client. He puts up w/ me 3 days a week & keeps me on my toes. I'd recommend Brad to anyone.

    Wouldn't train anywhere else
    Brad is a very kind and knowledgeable trainer and he is always looking out for his customers. Brad is always explaining the exercises, answering questions, observing and correcting your form. The programs are challenging and I feel like I'm getting a good workout after every class. The gym is great, it has everything we need to train and it's always improving.

    Want to hit your goals?!
    An amazing place with great people! I reach my goals that we plan out together. I've lost over 80lbs and am the strongest I've ever been while looking great!

    Love training at Stone Strength!
    7 months ago when I started I was out of shape – I had gotten so bored with the typical routines at the gym that I just stopped going. Between that and past leg injury, I could hardly execute many ‘normal’ movements/ exercises. Brad has a wonderful understanding of the human body and was able to pinpoint exactly why and where I was getting held up. He worked with me to provide additional stretches and exercises to improve my mobility. Now it’s pretty incredible how far I’ve come. I am constantly blown away at what I’m able to do and how my body is continually transforming. I see the same progress in others too. The atmosphere is wonderful! I honestly have a great time every time I go to train. I haven’t met anyone I didn’t like at Stone Strength. I am constantly meeting new people from all backgrounds and age groups. One of the best things is the team atmosphere. I grew up an athlete, always part of a team. After college it was a pretty odd feeling no longer being part of a team or competing. I really missed that. At Stone Strength I finally have that back! I highly recommend anyone and everyone to Stone Strength. No one is too old, young or broken. Brad us by far one of the best trainers I have ever had the pleasure to work with (and I have worked with my fair share of personal trainers, sports therapy rehab specialists, etc.). His expertise, great personality and positive attitude will not disappoint!

    Brad Stone believes In your potential!
    I have nothing but positive comments about Brad Stone. He is extremely passionate about his work and training the right way. His approach caters to each person's individual needs, such as injuries requiring customization, etc. Even in a group environment. Brad believes in your potential even when you don't. He pushes you to be better then says see I knew you could do it. Mantra being don't underestimate yourself! I highly recommend Brad and Stone Strength Systems to anyone serious about achieving their fitness goals. A+++++++++

    Stinger everyday!
    I've been working with Brad for a couple of years now and I have accomplished so much more than I ever thought that I could. I actually enjoy going to the gym and rather than feeling like it is something that I have to do, it is something that I want to do. All around a great trainer to work with!

    Great Experience
    I've been working with Brad at Stone Strength Systems for 8 months now and I am very happy with the results I am seeing. I am much leaner and much stronger than when I started, but don't let the fact that it's strength training scare you away. Brad is great about tailoring all exercises to all strength and skill levels, and the gym community is very supportive and friendly. All work outs are planned for you in advance and you can view your upcoming workout, sign in to your class and track your results on his app, it's very convenient. If you're looking to change some things up in your workout routine and work with an instructor that truly cares about your health, I'd definitely consider Brad's place.

Q&A

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
First thing we have to do is go through a movement screen to determine your starting point. It doesn't matter wether you are a collegiate or professional athlete or a stay at home mom, we need to assess your capabilities to ensure you are doing the right things, the right way. This assessment makes sure we don't attempt anything that is unsafe and we can determine the correct starting point for each movement pattern.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have bachelor's degree from UMSL as well as several training and nutrition coaching certifications including: -NASM Certified Personal Trainer -IYCA High School CSCS -IYCA Youth Nutrition Specialist -Precision Nutrition Level 1 Coach -Eat to Perform Level 1 and 2 Nutrition Coach In addition to my formal education and certification, I have been in the industry both as a client/trainee and coach for over 20 years, and I have had the opportunity to learn from some of the best minds in strength and conditioning during my time as a professional baseball player with the Florida/Miami Marlins.
