About Derik Brady
My name is Derik Brady, I am a National Academy of Sports Medicine Certified Personal Trainer with over 10 years of gym experience and 5 years of Diet/Nutrition consulting. At The University of Connecticut, I received my Bachelor's Degree in Health, Agriculture, and Natural Resources. My studies included Anatomy, Physiology, and Kinesiology along with numerous nutritional science courses.
Understanding the human body allows me to work with all walks of life, from pediatric (15+) to geriatric clients. I will always be sure to cover all age levels in my topics so everyone can enjoy and use my website. Feel free to contact me with any questions because I am here to help you achieve your goals!
What are Derik's Specialties?
As a Personal Trainer and Physical Therapist Assistant, I work with people at all different starting points ranging from patients right out of surgery (knee, hip, shoulder etc.) to clients trying to increase their strength, stability and power in the gym. My specialties include proper stretching, foam rolling, and resistant bands, as well as body weight exercises, weight training, and how to use all gym machines. Being able to understand the starting point of my clients and proper biomechanics of the human body, I am able to communicate exactly what will help and supply a training program that is challenging, doable and beneficial.
The human body is the most complex machine ever built. The nutritional science classes at The University of Connecticut have given me the knowledge of understanding how the body functions, how it accepts and uses the food you eat, and how to maximize this process. My specialties include assessing an individuals current diet, helping them construct a S.M.A.R.T goal, and creating a new diet plan tailored to their goal. From there, I will monitor your progress and make changes when necessary.
I also offer At Home Training in the Litchfield/Fairfield County area. Prices vary, so please contact me for more information.
