Building a USANA Body with Brad: The Secret Inspiration

The general population commonly simplifies health and exercise into basic terms and conditions that rarely solve the individual health puzzle.

For example, a guy who thinks he’ll simply work out at the gym and that will give him the ripped physique he has always desired … but continues to eat food not fit for consumption (fast food).

Or a lady who doesn’t want to “bulk” up so she simply eats less food, neglecting her lean muscle mass which really is what gives her the toned look she’s always wanted.

Many of us employ these common missteps over and over again. There are many pieces to the puzzle that must be employed in order to achieve success, including: exercise, healthy eating, healthy nutrition and emotional support.

Fortunately our USANA family knows these pieces exist and we are blessed enough to come to work every day in support of those who are out in the field changing people’s lives for the better by providing healthy nutrition/eating options.

It’s so easy to eat healthy when USANA is there providing the answers for you. It would be incredible if this was all that USANA provided us with, but it provides so much more.

I have to admit that I am a nerd. I love coming into this building and working every day to support this cause. USANA blesses my family with healthy nutrition and it also blesses my family with adopted family members that are really there for you. I mean really there for you.

In one week a bunch of co-workers are coming over to help me re-roof my house after a horrid windstorm ripped shingles off my roof. Absolutely amazing. I have forgotten that I have a boss; it’s that cool working here. They’re part of my family.

The ‘Secret Weapon’

So what does this have to do with anything?

Well, allow me to introduce to you my secret weapon: Daniel Perez. He is arguably the best emotionally supportive employee we have working at USANA.

I know what to eat, what to take nutritionally, how to exercise … but I need more. I need emotional support and I have it in Daniel, because he is part of my adopted family here at USANA.

He makes everyone’s day better and he’s there for me each and every day. I have never seen him frown. He is my exercise inspiration and I know he is many other USANA employees’ inspiration as well.

Daniel has been doing the same routine as I have been doing for the length of this blog series and has achieved amazing results.

His beginning bench press was right around 200 pounds for a 1 rep max. That’s OK for a fit guy, but nothing amazing. His legs used to be strong but now they are Superman-like.

I know he has desires to become a personal trainer one day so he can put his personality and skill to use in changing people’s lives for the better.

Allow me to present some of his amazing results on video… Daniel, you are a stud.

    Nice post, Brad! Love the part in the video where you say the USANA gym cannot handle Dan’s legs anymore. Haha.

    You’re right, Dan is always positive, always has a smile on his face, and is always willing to help out. Congratulations on your success.
