Des Moines, IA – December 7, 2016 – A feature story about Joe Brammer was recently seen in Yahoo! Finance as well as other major online publications such as Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal, Chicago Business Journal, ADVFN.com, MarketWatch, and major network affiliates across the country among many other outlets.
Long before Joe Brammer emerged as a professional MMA fighter known by his peers and fans as “The Southside Strangler,” he knew the pain of being an overweight kid in need of a personal and physical transformation. In addition to dieting, the self-discipline it took for him to drop 60-70 lbs. around eighth grade involved extensive workouts, and this training soon sparked a passion for martial arts.
Brammer launched the two careers that have defined his professional life in quick succession. He had his first pro fight on his 21st birthday and became a Certified Personal Trainer (from the American Council on Exercise) at 22 before later adding to his designations Certified Group Fitness Instructor and Certified Sports Nutritionist. His eventful MMA career included a 7-3-1 record (with five of his wins coming by submission), being signed to the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and making his UFC debut at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale. He was also the MCC (Midwest Cage Championship) 155 lb. MMA champion, as well as the Glory 155 lb. MMA champion.
When he first took over another gym’s lease to open his first location, Brammer’s goal was simply to build enough of a clientele to pay his bills and get his new full time venture off the ground. Now with the help of an industry mentor who has 37 fitness facility locations, he has developed a powerful, expansive vision that includes opening from 20-25 gyms throughout the Midwest.
Brammer believes that his brand is successful and clients get powerful results because he’s in a relationship business, not a transactional business. “If you train with us,” he says, “you know me, we know you, and you’re part of a community that’s dedicated to your success.”
