Health and Wellness Manager
Commonly referred to as “Acadiana’s Fitness Coach,” Coach Brian has provided numerous lifestyle transformations to members of Acadiana’s community for over thirteen years. Brian Broussard started his fitness career in 2001 as a fitness manager and trainer in New Orleans, LA. After moving to Lafayette in 2006, Brian started training at City Club and River Ranch. After realizing his passion to connect with groups of people as more than a trainer, Brian took on the “Coach” title and also started Coach Brian’s Boot Camps which grew rapidly with groups in Opelousas, Lafayette, and Youngsville. In 2010, he founded Fit Life, LLC with the mission to Educate and Empower companies in Acadiana to live the “Fit Life” by helping employees gain confidence and strength, while reducing chronic conditions like diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease. During this time, Coach Brian has consulted with and provided on-site fitness programs for numerous companies in Acadiana, with much success. In March 2014, Coach Brian opened Fit Life Fitness Studio, with the goal of expanding the Fit Life mission in providing a positive group environment that was effective but not extreme. Coach Brian has a passion for coaching and believes in setting personal challenges, not solely focusing on the extremity of the workout. He believes that everyone can be challenged and live the “Fit Life” in their way - every age, every weight.
Coach Brian has been an integral part in helping grow Healing House’s presence in Acadiana, since 2011. As a board member, Coach Brian has brought his engaging personality and leadership to help raise awareness for childhood grief. Fully funded by donations, sponsorships and fundraisers such as Family Adventure Day and Absolute Best Martini Contest, the Healing House serves as a support system to over 100 children in Acadiana and best of all, at no charge. Healing House is an organization that is near and dear to his heart.
With a bachelor’s in Physiology and a Master is Human Performance and Health Promotion, Health and Fitness has been his passion from the beginning.
Although he runs fitness boot camps, he is in no way a drill sergeant. He is ALWAYS wearing a smile and has never met a stranger. He gets very excited when clients’ reach their personal goals and has been known to break out in dance when they announce they’ve lost weight, have gotten stronger or healthier!
He credits his loving wife Berryl and his two handsome sons, Brian (12) and Brennan (9) for their constant support.
