Brad Cox has always been an active person throughout life and has what he calls a “hidden competitive side” (we all know it’s not so hidden lol). He loves a good challenge and rarely passes up the opportunity to try a new adventure.
Originally from San Diego, California, Brad now calls Yuma home with his wife Dustine and their two kids. Having joined the United States Marine Corps at the age of 17, Brad contributes his development into a responsible, independent young man to the Marine Corps. His responses to life’s daily challenges are answered with the USMC traits of Honor, Courage, and Commitment as a driving force.
It was is Brad's love for our military that led him to the Yuma Proving Ground in 2001 as a Test Vehicle Operator, before broadening his career and becoming an Engineer in 2006 for the Combat and Automotive Division.
Weight was never much of a problem for Brad growing up, but once kids came along, the pounds slowly began adding up. Fast food became a convenience and staying active was no longer a priority.
Reaching an all-time high of 215 pounds and wearing a size 40 pants, Brad knew it was time to change life’s priorities and his habits.
He joined the World’s Best Boot Camp – Yuma with Troop 006 in August 2014. After giving exercise a solid 6 week commitment and loving it, plus the benefit of seeing undeniable results, working out in a CrossFit gym became a way of life.
Brad’s new mission became to help people succeed in finding true happiness through physical fitness. He became a CrossFit Level 1 trainer in 2016 and brings a smile and positive attitude that is contagious to those working out around him. As he always says, nothing is impossible, it may just take time and determination to succeed, but nothing worth having ever came easy. Keep your head up and look forward to your goals in life.
Brad also loves motorcycles, off roading and spending time with his family.
