Trainer Spotlight: Brady Weeks
Posted by Megan Armstrong on July 27, 2016
Meet SculptHouse trainer, Brady Weeks! Brady’s love of music, people and fitness shines in every class she teaches and Brady can thank her mom for exposing her to the fitness circuit early on. Growing up in Illinois, Brady’s mom used to take Brady to all of her favorite group fitness classes. Later in life, Brady solidified this love by studying exercise science at Ole Miss then furthering her qualifications by becoming a certified NASM trainer and group fitness instructor.
You have taught other types of group fitness classes here in Atlanta. What makes SculptHouse’s workout so different and effective?
SculptHouse’s signature workout, CardioSculpt, is so damn effective because it works both your slow twitch and fast twitch muscle fibers in just 50 minutes! There is no other studio within ATL that has challenged my body in that way. I also love that it is a HIGH intensity workout that is also LOW IMPACT!!! This workout really is for ANYONE!
What is your favorite type of music to play during your classes at The House?
I love to keep my clients guessing when it comes to music. I have tons of workout playlists and I also have a reservoir of songs that I’m really lovin’ at the moment. I dig all sorts of genres and enjoy reading the vibe in my classes to know what to play next. I love to throw people off with a good throw back jam to lighten the mood during those ALL OUT intervals! I completely understand and believe in the POWER of a FAB playlist!
What is your favorite Megaformer move and why?
Hmm….this is a hard question because there are so many awesome moves out there! I LOVE LOVE LOVE working my glutes, so if I can only pick one move I would pick Spider Kicks. You can feel that move working deep into your booty! It is just so different than any move I have ever done in previous workouts. I also love how it challenges my flexibility!
What is your favorite block to do on the Curve?
As CRAZY as it sounds, I LOVE 45’s. They are so hard and such a pain in the ass but that is exactly what I enjoy about them. 45’s always challenge both my mind and body.
At the House, each instructor has a bin to keep whatever they need to teach. What’s in your bin? What’s in your gym bag when you work out?
Inside my bin…LOL!!! I have a print out of almost every single workout I have ever taught at SculptHouse (and at this point it is pretty outrageous, but I just cleaned it out last week)! I also have a stick of Carmex cherry flavored chapstick and always gum. In my gym bag, you will find hairspray, headbands, BLONDE bobby pins (I’m really neurotic about my bobby pins being blonde), Acure Organics clarifying glycolic and zinc face towelettes, and last but not least SoapWalla’s balancing facial toning mist found inside the amazing SH boutique! I am literally obsessed with the toning mist. It cools you off and is super refreshing after a sweaty class!
Where can we find you when you’re not at The House?
When I am not a The House, I am sure to be found somewhere outside with my pup Waffles. I love taking small excursions with him to find the coolest new trails that turn into lakes, rivers, or streams for him to play in and for me to get some zen time in. I LOVE WATER!!!!
Best part about being part of the SculptSquad??
The coolest/my most favorite part of being on TheSquad is the ability to deliver an extremely unique, badass, and effective workout to ATL. I completely believed in Katherine’s vision from the first meeting I had with her. To give clients a high intensity AND low impact workout really is just so rad!! I was also super excited about the opportunity to work under our lead trainer Megan. Knowing what a badass she was made me realize that she would help push me way outside of my comfort zone and challenge me in more ways than one as a trainer. And finally, I really love the team of women our leaders have put together and developed. Each trainer is so very different, but the glue that holds us all together is that every member of TheSquad is constantly pushing themselves to the next level in all aspects of life inside and outside of the studio. We are all very courageous and understand that the most fulfilled lives are created when stepping outside of your comfort zone!
Thanks, B! Your hard work and dedication to SculptHouse has been prominent since months before we even opened. Thank you for being such an integral part of SH and for bringing positive energy each time you step through the front doors! You are so loved by us all.
You can Sculpt with Brady on Wednesdays at 6am and 7:15am, Thursdays at 8:30am and 5:45pm plus Saturdays at 9:15am. Rest up beforehand because her high energy and spirit will keep your heart rate up the whole time!
