The Brand X Method
MEET THE The Brand X Method FOUNDERS: Since late 2004, Jeff and Mikki Martin have been working with and training children in functional fitness and physical literacy. They have coached hundreds of kids and teens, including USA Powerlifting state record holders and national qualifiers as well as high school all-state and all-city kids. They have visited and helped dozens of schools and gyms to improve their kids programs. They launched The Brand X Method™ in late 2014, evolving their methodology not only to provide fitness and fun, but to develop and retain longevity in fitness through careful application of appropriate programming. Our Mission: to do what is best for kids and teens. We imagine a better future for our kids. We know you do too. Together we want what is best for kids and teens. We want them to have the freedom and fearlessness to engage wholeheartedly with the world throughout their entire lives. Today’s youth are caught between increasingly sedentary lifestyles and earlier and intensive single-sport specialization. This has reduced physical activity—decreasing free play, undermining motor skills development, heightening injury risk, and exacerbating childhood obesity. As the world leader in youth fitness, The Brand X Method™ confronts this public health threat head on with a strength-and-conditioning program specifically designed for kids and adaptable to any environment, from austere, low-gear settings such as elementary PE classes to well-equipped training facilities such as D1 prep schools and commercial gyms. Since 2004, we have been driven by a relentless pursuit of best practices in youth training. Our focus on motor pattern training and physical literacy enhancement optimizes kids’ fitness and elevates their athleticism. We help protect kids and teens against sports injury, boost their sports performance, and push back against the forces behind obesity. The mastery, confidence, and motivation that kids develop in our gyms are the ingredients of freedom and fearlessness. The Brand X Method™ instills the essence of adventure, passion, and joy in kids and teens when playing their favorite sports, trying new things, and tackling life’s challenges so they can step out of our gyms knowing they can do whatever they set out to do. We imagine better, and The Brand X Method™ is the way forward.
