Be the Coach You Wish You’d Had

  •  Season 2, Episode 12

In this episode, IDEA’s Sandy Webster interviews Brian Nguyen, ATC, CSCS, whose storied career in fitness has included coaching stints with top U.S. athletes and sports teams such as Derek Fisher, Hardy Nickerson, Chase Utley, the LA Avengers and the Jacksonville Jaguars. He also has become the go-to trainer for some of Hollywood’s leading actors and actresses, including Mark Wahlberg, Will Farrell, and Natalie Martinez. Mark Wahlberg found him so indispensable, that he asked Brian to be a part of his now-legendary “entourage,” and Brian now serves as Wahlberg’s personal Director of Human Performance and Health, accompanying him to every movie set.

With over 20 years of experience in the fitness industry, his true path as a coach is about inspiring people to do things they thought were never possible. Brian is also passionate about inspiring, motivating and sharing his knowledge with other fitness coaches. He shares his expertise in physiological science and biomechanics with fit pros around the world, and he has been an NASM master instructor for more than 7 years.
