Brennan Morgan
Certifications: 
•NETA Certified Personal Trainer
•Red Cross CPR Certified
•Year in College: Junior
What I love about Personal Training/Why I became a Trainer: When I was young I was very obese, I used to be out of breath from just walking around. I reached my heaviest of 270 pounds when I was in middle school, after that point I decided to lose the weight. Eventually I was able to lose over one hundred pounds, seeing that difference in how I felt and looked sparked my interest in fitness. I hope to be able to help all of my clients feel that sense of empowerment and success in all of their goals.
