Brandon Harding’s Biography
So, who is Brandon Harding, really? According to the biography on his website, he started his journey into the fitness world just 6 years ago. He claims that when he was young, he (and we quote), “I became obsessed with the idea of being able to fill out my school shirt that hung so loosely”.

Harding says that this obsession, coupled with the interest that he has always had about muscular development, are what urged him to start working out so that he could overcome his “insecurities” and start building his “dream physique”.
Also according to the biography posted on the website, Brandon says that he has always understood that changes to the physical body don’t appear suddenly – something that makes lots of people lose interest and give up on their bodybuilding goals; however, Harding says that his “love for the sport of bodybuilding is a constant source of motivation” to help keep on pushing himself so that he can realize his goals.
Clearly, his motivation and efforts have paid off! Just take a look at some of his videos and posts and there’s no denying that he has a picture-perfect physique.
Brandon claims that he is “fascinated” by seeing his dreams become realty via constancy, dedication, and strategy. He’s dedicated to his physical and mental growth, and is committed to inspiring others to achieve their own fitness goals.
With more than a half-million supporters and 38 million views on his YouTube channel, he is surely realizing his dreams. This can be verified by his recent purchasing of a brand new Audi R8 (so jealous) in which he outlines in a video the long journey from obscurity to successful professional bodybuilder, highlighting the highs and lows along the way in what is a truly motivating story.
