Bradbury Fitness LLC was born out of passion and love for overall fitness and our mission is two-fold: to work and compete to be the best we can be, and to transfer our passion, knowledge, and experience to others who work with us. We have had the privilege to work with hundreds of triathlon newcomers; people who are not only new to the sport, but many who are new to athletics in general. Beyond teaching them what a tri-bike is, what a wetsuit is, and what a race-belt is, we have taught them how rewarding and gratifying it can be to challenge yourself and push beyond what you thought was possible. You, that is our focus, whether it’s to finish a 5k for the first time or to podium at a World Championships. We keep our cliente base small in order to maintain this focus
