American Fitness Model - Brandon Bass

Brandon's fitness journey began the day he picked up his first fitness magazine. Even though he was on a championship baseball team he gave it up to follow his real dream of being the best natural bodybuilder/fitness model. At age 16, Brandon started reading every piece of literature he could get his hands on in regards to weight training, nutrition and supplementation. Staying up till 1, 2, even 3 in the morning was normal for him as he gradually built his knowledge base of the fitness industry. Brandon increased his knowledge base by consulting with other professionals in the fitness industry. After gaining substantial knowledge, Brandon was ready to apply it to his own regimen and step on the bodybuilding stage at age 18.
Brandon didn't win the show, but learned the valuable lesson of perseverance, steady persistence in the pursuit of fitness. After his first show, Brandon decided he wanted to do this full time. He fell in love with the sport instantly. After countless bodybuilding shows, sponsorships, signing with the Wilhelmina modeling agency, overseas trips, magazine covers, and national certifications, Brandon still remember his journey as the bright eyed kid with a dream, working out in his bedroom without a sense of direction, yet knowing this is what he was meant to do. And he announces, the best is yet to come.
