Brian Martinez is originally from New Jersey and is a veteran of the U.S. Army. He grew up playing different sports, mainly soccer and martial arts. Upon graduation from high school, Brian decided to enlist in the Army where he completed a tour in Afghanistan. It was during his time overseas where he found his passion for weight training. It helped Brian keep his mind focused goals instead of dwelling about missing home. After returning home to North Carolina, Brian continued to train and in 2009 competed in his first show at the Elite Muscle Class in Greensboro, NC. He had no idea of how to properly prepare for contests and couldn't afford a coach, which led him to reading every MD and Flex magazine possible. Brian ended up placing 2nd in the heavy weight class of Novice Bodybuilding. He felt that after his first competition he had found his true calling, thus leading him to not only want to better himself but to provide the tools and resources for others that want to be successful in the Fitness Industry.
Brian is also a sponsored athlete with Labrada Nutrition and recently obtained pro status with IFBB in 2017, after winning Class B at the NPC Jr Nationals Classic Physique.
