Get Fit Academy brings a little bit of Miami to Boca with its upbeat, club-like atmosphere.
Members of Get Fit Academy are affectionately called the Get Fit Mafia, and owner and trainer Brandon Brennan is Mr. Get Fit. Brennan brings his passion for fitness and his boundless energy to the studio to get everyone who shows up excited to workout.
After finishing college and getting accepted to Physician Assistant School, Brennan soon realized he didn’t want to continue in that profession. He realized he wanted to change lives holistically through exercise, nutrition, and motivation, not medication. Brennan had gone through his own fitness journey after gaining weight in college and now uses his knowledge to mentor individuals as the owner of Get Fit Academy.
“The only way to do great work is to love what you do,” said Brennan. “My passion in life since I was young was to make people feel good.”
The dark room, fun lighting, smoke machines, and music combine to create an amazing ambiance for workouts at Get Fit Academy. Whether participants use this atmosphere to motivate themselves or to help take their mind off the high-intensity workout they are completing, they are experiencing a unique element of Get Fit Academy the minute they walk through the doors of the studio.
The goal of Get Fit Academy since opening in summer 2018 is to be a one-stop shop for fitness, offering cardio conditioning, resistance training, kickboxing, and yoga within one studio. Classes such as Gunz and Bunz offer interval training focused on either the upper body or the lower body. There is Booty Fit, a class solely for the glutes, and a boot camp that encompasses a little of everything.
The studio also offers different yoga and Pilates classes, both heated and non-heated. All the classes on the schedule are either 30 or 45 minutes, which means participants are putting in non-stop work to make the workout as efficient as possible.
After sweating it out, class ends with 10-15 minutes of meditation to continue the positive vibes into the rest of the day. Brennan calls this “getting the mind right,” and uses this time as an opportunity to continue to motivate and bring out the best in people.
“Good vibes only is what I live by and that’s exactly what the atmosphere is like at Get Fit Academy,” said Brennan.
“I am blessed that I can impact people’s lives for the better. I will do this for as long as I live.”
