In this weeks episode of “Origins”, coach Andrea Valdez digs into the past, present and future life of Coach Brad Loomis. Starting from the beginning, the two discuss Brad’s hometown, his early childhood, then continue to journey their way through the many stages of Brad’s life as a stock car driver, bodybuilder, CAT scan tech, family man and more.
The beginning of Brad’s bodybuilding career didn’t begin in the same fashion as many other bodybuilders, who most often find their way into this sport through the development of a love for lifting while preparing for a team sport. Instead, at age 16, Brad Loomis began his journey as a stock car driver.
In his late 20’s, after the crazy lifestyle as a stock car driver was coming to a close, Brad began to shift his focus towards what would become his ultimate passion, weight lifting.
Andrea and Brad discuss what led him to the iron game, and how almost immediately he found himself owning his own gym, training clients, and preparing for bodybuilding competitions with the help of the world renowned pro, Skip La Core.
This episode comes to an interesting close as Brad answer’s a most thought provoking question, if he had better genetics, would he still have switched to power-lifting or would he have remained with his first athletic love, bodybuilding?
