Josef Brandenburg

Charlotte, NC 28277

Josef first got interested in health, fitness and nutrition when his physician told him he was “too fat for your own good” at age 9. That, and being made fun of at summer camp sparked a drive to learn everything he possibly could about looking better without his shirt off, so that he could go to the beach without feeling ashamed of his body.

Eventually someone asked Josef for help with their workouts, and that first request has turned into a calling, a 15 year career, and the opening of The Body You Want Fitness Solutions, the premier personal training and weight loss destination in DC (right in the heart of Georgetown).

Josef is the author of The Body you Want, The Client Success Manual, and several other books including the forthcoming book Results Fitness (look for that in late summer 2012). Josef was also the fitness expert for the PCOS challenge reality TV series, and has been featured in The Washington Post, on ABC, WUSA 9, and in newspapers coast to coast. He’s also received certifications through ACE, NASM, FMS, CHECK, and the NCEP.
