Barrett is a health and fitness enthusiast, dedicated to helping others reach their goals, whether it be building muscle, increasing strength, losing weight, toning, becoming more functional, advancing in sports and athletics, or eliminating any mental/physical barriers. He strives to motivate, encourage, and lead his clients towards success during every session with fun, challenging, and science-based workouts, personalized to the client’s specific goal. He believes that everyone has to start somewhere, and is determined to help his clients reach the next level, no matter where they are in their fitness journey. Through his academics and research at Texas State University, and his time with Can You Barrett Boot Camp, Train 4 the Games, and Pure Austin Fitness, he has gained experience in training those new to fitness all the way to collegiate and professional athletes.
Barrett constantly strives to help his clients the best of his ability by continually advancing his education in the field. Since receiving his Bachelors of Exercise and Sports Science in 2014, he has earned five different certifications related to health, training, and strength and conditioning. Currently, he studies the influence of the nervous system on movement, mobility, and functionality of the human body, through Z-Health Performance. By becoming a Z-Health Movement Reeducation and Integration Specialist, Barrett is able to help his clients rehabilitate injuries, relieve aches and pains related to movement, and promote healthier and more effective ways of functioning, in turn producing optimal results both in mind and body.
In addition to designing fun yet challenging workouts for his clients, as well as using Z-Health to help with any physical obstacles and to promote effective movement, Barrett believes in teaching his clients the science and form behind each exercise along the way. By doing so, he hopes to provide his clients with the tools necessary to create their own workouts and fitness routines outside of his sessions. When Barrett isn’t with clients, he enjoys spending time with his wife, Breanna, working towards his personal goal of competing in a powerlifting meet, riding his motorcycle, and hanging out with his family and friends throughout Texas.

“I have been training with Barrett for the past three months and I have had a very positive experience. Barrett is very knowledgeable and has a variety of tricks in his training bag. Being a below the knee amputee Barrett accepted the challenge of training me head on and was able to adjust exercises adapting them for me on the fly. Over time he was able to develop a customized workout program that fit my needs. Barrett was the first trainer that I encountered who was not afraid of working with someone different and did not back down from the challenge. He will push you to work harder and do more but also understands limits, a perfect balance in my opinion. I not only lost weight and inches but also gained over all strength in my body and improved my balance on my affected leg. After three months I felt stronger and healthier than I have felt in years.”

“Barrett is one of the most positive and motivated trainers I have ever had the privilege of training with. For over a year Barrett has made the time and the results worth it. He believes in you, keeps you motivated and continuously pushes you to be your best. Also, he educates you while exercising with facts about what you are doing and why. He takes pride and cares about each individual he trains with personally. Barrett takes your goals serious and wants to see your performance excel while still having fun. He loves training and his positive attitude is contagious.”
