Millennials seem to have found a way to do what they truly love and earn money while enjoying it. And, the internet has provided a platform (social media) for them to let the world know them and what they represent irrespective of what the venture may be. Bradley Martyn, an American fitness guru and media personality is such a millennial. He has made a name for himself from building his body and empowering others to do the same.
Born on May 22, 1989, he has climbed through obstacles and trumped challenges to become who he is. He is without a doubt, a force to reckon with in the fitness industry. Meet Bradley Martyn, whose greatest satisfaction comes from inspiring others to be the best of themselves.
Bradley Martyn Bio
Starting out from a difficult childhood where his father took his own life at only his (Bradley) sixth year in life, he defied all odds to attain success and live out the life of his dreams.
Being strong-minded, he set his mind to what he wants out of his life giving little or no heed to the circumstances surrounding him. Not allowing any situation to break him, he became made through the seeming negatives in his life. He accords his greatest influences to his mother, his friend, Brandon Gerbes and fans.
At the age of 15, Bradley took to the gym and started training. It might have been leisure at that time but he continued nonetheless. Gaining more knowledge and interest in weight training and nutrition, the fitness guru launched his own training program, BFMit in January 2006; BM stands for the first letters of his names.
He got enrolled in college but dropped out one semester to graduation. Whatever his reasons may be, it sure must have been after some thoughtful consideration and weighing of decisions and choices as he has proved time and again to be a thoughtful and wise bloke.
Bradley described his training programs as successful but it wasn’t until 2014 that his prominence began to rise in the fitness arena. He founded and became the CEO of AlphaCre8tivedesigns in July of 2012 and started an eponymous YouTube channel in late 2014. He also co-founded the Zoo Culture Gym. The channel has a high subscription and features health and fitness training. Bradley also sells a wide range of gear and supplements on his website. An excellent combo of brain and brawn you would say.
He has become a force to reckon with when fitness is mentioned. Bradley has also helped not just others but celebrities alike which include model and Instagram star, Sommer Ray. He also posted videos where he was helping FouseyTUBE on a Weight Loss Journey.
His Training and Nutrition Outlook
Though he has said that he does not necessarily stick to what a piece of paper suggests or says about body fitness, but rather believes in listening to his body, he is dedicated to his training. He may not be following a set routine or rule to his training but what his body tells him, he is sure getting a good output from his dedicated inputs.
Bradley does not exercise for more than an hour and a half and sticks to 8-12 rep range for most of the exercises and usually does 3-5 sets of each exercise for larger muscle groups, as a general rule though.
For his nutrition, during the days of his competitions, he fasted intermittently for 16 hours and then have an 8-hour open window where he will have a large meal. Nevertheless, he has changed his feeding approach to be looser. His diet rule may be to reduce his carb intake while he increases his protein and fats portion. This gives him the best result in fat loss.
However, to build his muscles, he indulges in a slight increase in carb intake. According to him, it makes his muscles recover faster and give him a bit more energy. These foods are on the top 5 for his muscle goal: salmon, quinoa, bell peppers, greek yogurt, and almond butter.
Bradley Martyn’s Net Worth
This fitness maven cum entrepreneur is an influence to reckon with in the arena of bodybuilding. Not only has he built a jacked up body over the years, he also has found a way of showing others how to achieve the same result through his videos. Thus, he has garnered an impressive following across social media platforms where he also markets his gears and supplements: Twitter, over 150k followers, Instagram, 2.8 million followers, and more than 2.9 million followers on Facebook.
With more than 1.4 million subscribers on YouTube and over 220 million views, Bradley earns a good revenue of about $500 per day ($180,000 a year) from the ads that run on YouTube. His net worth is estimated at $750,000.
His earnings will increase in the future as his subscribers and client base does.
Body Transformation, Height and Weight
Bradley is tall, he has A-class muscles and is annoyingly handsome too with rugged features but his body size and build is not one that came by mere wishing and eating, he puts in a ton of work to get to his expected end and stills trains to maintain his status as a world-class fitness figure. His video uploads present him as an honest and inspiring person who is real enough to take others through his training and nutrition regimen.
He has also entered into bodybuilding competitions where he stands out. In 2011, he was placed first in the NPC Southern California Championships and second in the NPC USA Championships. Between 2012 and 2013, Bradley Martyn took part in the NPC USA Championships twice where he came 10th and 8th respectively and in the 2013 NPC Phil Heath Classic where he clinched the first position.
As is common with many fitness freaks, it is usually speculated that their changes over time may not be natural and could have been aided through some artificial processes, like ingestion of steroids. And the case of Bradley Martyn, with an impressive physique, is not different, after all, he is a renowned fitness guru and has had a remarkable transformation over a period of years.
It can be well assumed or even known that for one to gain a significant muscle mass, that one must start out very early in life mostly in the teens to start training. The reason may be because the body is still in its growth phase and genetics could play a huge role. Bradley as earlier stated started training when he was 15 and by 2011, he has started going for bodybuilding shows. But the sudden blowup looks somehow unnatural posing some questions like, is Bradley juicing?
Fast forward to the present, a lot of amazing transformation has happened which was not so back in 2011. Is his body build natural or steroid facilitated? It could be either but some factors such as thick muscles, red and flushed skin points towards his possible use of the substance.
Though he has a natural overall appearance with a lean body and a fat percentage of 9.7, 6′ 3″ tall and a matching weight of 245lb, he has not said anything about his use of steroid. That does not rule out the fact that he puts in enough work to get to where he is today and has efficiently carved out a niche for himself and his brand. At most, we can only assume until he proves the speculations either right or wrong.
Who Is His Girlfriend?
The aesthetic beast, with his influences and personality, is still single. He doesn’t have a girl attached to him as a date or even a girlfriend. He set out in late 2017 on Twitter to announce that he wants a girlfriend, but as funny as the post may seem to him, there came in a lot of funny and serious responses alike to meet him.
Bradley Martyn may be searching, but he does not even have his mind set on that for now or possibly have someone who he has not made known yet.
