Brad Baker

Brad is a physical therapist, orthopedic specialist, and strength & conditioning specialist in Minnesota. He owns the Minnesota branch of Better Faster Stronger Science - a national amateur athletic testing organization that uses sport science technology to assess player’s limitations and specific needs to unlock their athletic potential. Brad co-founded Bold Base with Tom because through his time working with hundreds of clients, he became increasingly passionate about other aspects of sport performance including nutrition, sleep, stress management, recovery and breathing. These have been coined the “Pillars of Performance” as they combine to build the entire foundation for athletic success. Brad’s goal is to create revolutionary change for athletes by providing the resources he wishes he had growing up that would have changed not only his performance, but his overall health.

Tom Broback

Tom is a physical therapist and strength & conditioning specialist in Minnesota. A lifelong athlete, Tom continues to develop his passion and knowledge of sports performance through a dedicated effort of research, commitment and experimentation. Tom co-founded Bold Base Performance with Brad to create a platform to share their knowledge and experience in rehab, fitness, exercise and sports performance. He wants parents, coaches, athletes and trainers to feel empowered in their decision making and confident that they are doing the most efficient and effective things. Tom is passionate about optimizing the pillars of performance so athletes can reach untapped levels of athleticism and be successful in sport and in life. His ultimate goal is to provide the next generation of athletes the resources on how to exercise, think, eat and sleep in order to maximize their potential.
