Bao Tran
Personal Trainer
NASM-CPT, ACE-CPT, TacFit, CST, WKC Kettlebell, FMS

Bao Tran is an advocate for those who believe they can overcome their fragility through physical training. This ideal was instilled in him from his years of martial arts training as a child.

Bao Tran has studied with many martial arts masters and they have all given him a philosophy (blueprint) for strength, self-mastery, and life.

Bao’s philosophy is simple – assume you are weaker, slower, and less athletic than your opponent. Instead of fighting strength with strength develop your technique (technology) and cunningness (strategy) to overcome your adversity. This was how the biblical David was able to overcome Goliath.

Bao Tran has impeded this philosophy since 1998 as a personal trainer. Over the past decades he has studied with talented strength and conditioning coaches and trained countless of clients to overcome their Goliath. He hopes to share the same philosophy and training to Momentum Fitness.

Currently Bao Tran is a passionate student of Brazilian JiuJitsu at the Renzo Gracie Academy. He enjoys reading and studying philosophy, history, politics, and psychology.
