Exercise, fitness, health, wellness or however you choose to refer to it wasn’t something that I was raised with or really grew up understanding. Athletics and more so my time in the U.S. Navy is when I began to understand if you exercise and eat in a certain fashion the body begins to respond. While being drawn to this concept very quickly it isn’t something that wasn’t without pitfalls and is certainly something that has continually grown with me over the past 20 years. It is in fact something that not only grows but helps, inspires, teaches, and motivates me daily in both my personal and professional life.

As a Certified Personal Trainer, Group Fitness Instructor, Strength and Conditioning Specialist, Nutritionist and Sports Nutritionist I have found both exercise and nutrition to be the true model for success. Sound nutritional principles with the consistent practice of exercise and cardiovascular work are truly the building blocks for a healthier lifestyle. I have never been a fan of fad diets or gimmick style exercise programs and products. The foundation for fitness is actually simple in concept yet in today’s slick marketing world and more results less work mindset we easily fall victim to programs that fall short of what we need time and time again. I will never make the comment that changing your life is an easy process or happens in 10min a day. I don’t promote miracle diets or losing X number of pounds in X number of days. Each person is a unique individual and their needs AND results will be equally unique. Boastful claims are designed simply to prey on the desperation of others. I sincerely believe a change and an ultimate goal can be reached in everyone but a large part of this depends not only in me but you as well. I can help you, motivate you, teach you and provide you with the tools and environment in which to succeed but ultimately that success will be found in our work together and not unrealistic boastful claims.

At Fitness 4U we have created one of Springfield’s most unique fitness experiences. We do not attach ourselves to any specific method or modality but embrace concepts of traditional and new age fitness. We focus on distraction free PRIVATE 1 on 1 Personal Training as well as our most popular experience which is our Small Group Fitness. This has many of the benefits of private personal training but in an environment with a trainer and other clients helping one other move in the same direction to ultimate success without being forced to keep up or be held back by anyone else’s abilities. Along with these we have our Youth/Teen Sports conditioning training and classes with a dedicated trainer focused on that Athlete or class the entire time working on the core principles of Sports Specific Conditioning

We encourage everyone to contact us for a tour and free week to see if this ultimately is the best fit for you.

Caleb Brammer Certified Personal Trainer/ Group Trainer

Former collegiate football player for Missouri State University. Graduated from Missouri State University with a B.S in Kinesiology/Exercise Science with an emphasis on Nutrition and ACSM certified Exercise Physiologist. Transitioning from a high school defensive end to a college linebacker/fullback is what inspired me to get into the fitness world. With my background of being a part of a division 1 football program as well as my credentials, I have made it my passion to use that to help people achieve their fitness goals.

My philosophies and approach to fitness is to incorporate full body Strength and conditioning training used in top tier collegiate programs to implement power and explosion as well as stability and flexibility to achieve overall fitness. My focuses are using the big three multi-joint lifts (Squat, Deadlift, and Bench Press) along with aerobic/bodyweight type movements to supplement strength & explosion as well as aid in faster recovery. I also specialize in promoting weight loss, weight gain, cardiovascular fitness (endurance training), and customized meal programs to supplement fitness goals.

Betsy Brown CPT/Group Trainer, CSN, BS Sports Medicine/Athletic Training

Growing up I always loved swimming and diving and eventually began coaching them. I first discovered the weight room in high school and fell in love immediately. I felt like for the first time I found something that I truly had passion for and my only competition was myself. In college I got a BS from MSU in Sports Medicine and Athletic training and worked as a personal trainer over the summer. Due to my connection with training I later also became a Certified Personal Trainer and Sports Nutritionist.

The thing I love most about training is seeing my clients improve themselves physically but also becoming happier healthier people. Once they get started and develop their own passion for improving themselves it gives me a great sense of accomplishment. Fitness 4U stands out in the crowd to me because unlike most gyms here at F4U the sole emphasis is on the client and helping them attain their goals and not about the amount of memberships they can sell.
