Brandon Schrom- Sport Scientist For Team USA, Hemophiliac, And Aspiring Gym Owner — Real Chalk #75

Brandon contacted me a few weeks ago in regards to opening a gym. I figured instead of writing him a long message, I would just go down and see him at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista and record it. Not only was it an amazing experience to be around all these amazing athletes, but I got to hear a lot more of Brandon’s story and understand why he’s where he’s at and why he would want to open a gym in the first place. He’s overcome a ton adversity, he’s a brilliant guy, and literally everything we talk about has so much value to anyone looking to open their own business or even train athletes in general.
