BRAD STONE

A graduate of CBC HS in 2003 Brad was a multi-sport athlete playing
baseball and basketball. Upon graduation, he went on a baseball scholarship to Quincy University in Illinois where he received all-conference honors all three years and was First Team all-Region and an All American as a Junior.

Drafted twice, in 2005 by the Houston Astros in the 31st round and again in 2006 by the Florida Marlins in the 12th round. He played for 6 years including two at AAA New Orleans before retiring after an arm injury.

For almost two decades Brad has been a private pitching instructor in the St. Louis area and a strength coach since 2012, owning his own business since 2015. He has worked with hundreds of athletes from the high school, college, and professional ranks. He has also helped coach with Bishop DuBourg High School during their state championship season as well as Webster University and St. Mary’s High School.

In the weight room, Brad has over 20 years experience on both sides of the equation, as a coach and a client. Having been an athlete for most of his life he has had access to some world class coaching. These opportunities to learn from the best in the business have helped him formulate his personal
philosophies and create the foundation for his career as a strength coach.

“My unique perspective, having been a client and a coach, allows me to see all sides of the equation. I know what works to be motivated and pushed as an athlete as well as what needs to be done as your coach. Having been a client allows me to understand the day to day struggles real people go through and how to help push through the tougher days!”

sarah langston

After graduating from Pattonville High School in 2012 as a Tri – Varsity athlete, I went on to study at Lindenwood University for the next five years. While working towards my degree in film and communication, I stayed active as a lifeguard, swim coach, and aqua aerobics instructor at the St. Peters Rec Plex. The skill sets learned and opportunities that presented themselves while working there pushed me onto a completely different path than anticipated, and I ended up taking my first full time gig in Columbia Maryland in the world of fitness and aquatics. 

Over the next five years, I would take chances and travel often, learning new things at each location. So far, I have lived in: Maryland, Pennsylvania, Utah, and Missouri, and have traveled through and visited: New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Indiana, Georgia, Kentucky, Illinois, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, Iowa, Colorado, Nebraska, Kansas, and Hawai’i. 

Through my travels, I’ve experienced several different avenues of fitness training, completed my certifications through NLCA, ACE, and  an in depth study of nutrition and fitness training through OFNC Fitness and Nutrition Specialization. I’ve started my own online personal training company, competed in Swing Dance Aerial competitions, and started bodybuilding. I am SO excited to be training in person again as I put traveling adventures on a backburner for now. 

My current goals are to learn and grow in this environment, settle down with my dog Korra, and husband-to-be Tyler, and compete in the Bodybuilding Physique division before 2024!

“Those that dedicate their minds to a goal will always find a way to accomplish it.”

spenser stokes

My name is Spenser Stokes, and I have been working as a Health and Fitness Coach for close to 6 years now, and I have been a dedicated fitness enthusiast for well over a decade. In that time I have dabbled in nearly every circle of the fitness community ranging from: Barbell training, free weights, calisthenics, sport performance. You name it, I have probably tried it, however my passion and speciality lies withing the Body-weight fitness realm. It is the backbone of my training philosophy.

 

When the lock-down first started back in March of 2020 I, like many others, was pushed out of my comfort zone, and was challenged to adapt my style. During that time I fell back onto my roots in body-weight fitness with a shift in mentality to focus more on how to take care of the body for the sake of longevity both in the gym, and in the real world. Since then I have been moving pain and injury free. In addition to dedicated resistance training I have developed a movement system based around ‘natural-movement’ to help strengthen and support our mobility,  joint health, and core strength.

 

I am very passionate about biomechanics, posture re-balancing, and driving adaption in the human body. I pride myself on being able to meet my clients at their current fitness level (wherever on the spectrum that may be) and build from there.  My personal goal for every session I have it is: To have my clients leave my session moving and feeling better than when they first walked into the session.
