Our team



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.
