In 2020, Brandi’s gym was leveled by a tornado. She rebuilt her business and reached certified millionaire status just three years later.

A tornado completed destroyed CrossFit Hermitage in 2020.

Undaunted, Brandi Forbes kept her community together and rebuilt her business. By 2023, she had hit her net owner benefit for several years in a row, and she achieved certified millionaire status in June of that year.

Brandi, originally a computer instructor, worked all the way to director of corporate communications for Gaylord Entertainment—the largest non-gaming hospitality company in the United States. In 2010, she managed the reopening of the Grand Ole Opry House, the Gaylord Opryland hotel and other properties after catastrophic flooding.

When Brandi fell in love with entrepreneurship in 2012, she left that position and opened her gym in Nashville, Tennessee.

Brandi was one of the people to attend Chris Cooper’s first presentation to gym owners before Two-Brain Business existed. She followed his blogs, read his books and eventually joined Two-Brain in 2017 “after wasting time and money with a consulting group whose values did not align with mine.”

With mentorship, Brandi has built—and rebuilt—a strong business that was voted “best gym” four years in a row by readers of The Tennessean. In 2023, the gym won the Best of Hermitage Award. As of September 2023, Brandi is in the process of expanding from 4,000 to 6,000 square feet, and her client length of engagement (LEG) is an incredible 38 months.

With a great business in place, Brandi is living her Perfect Day. She joined the Two-Brain team in 2023 to help other entrepreneurs “build the life they love.”

“I want to give back and help gym owners reach their goals faster than I did—and in a more supported way. I want to help level up the entire industry and show gym owners that it’s possible to build a true career for themselves and for others without being tied to their gyms 24/7 or working on the floor from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m.”

As a mentor who’s been through many crises, Brandi is especially good at seeing the main goal and then focusing on the exact steps to accomplish it fast.

“I love simplifying strategy into tactics and connecting the dots for people to get them out of the daily grind and into quick wins that magically propel their life and business forward,” she said.

Brandi has a host of fitness and nutrition credentials, a public-speaking certificate from Dale Carnegie Training, a bachelor’s degree in marketing, and a master’s degree in business administration from Vanderbilt University.

In the spare time she’s earned by building a thriving business, Brandi and her husband enjoy riding their motorcycles, hiking with their two dogs, and spending time at their beach condo.

“As a mentor, I get to combine my 30-plus years of coaching, teaching and building trust with my corporate experience to help entrepreneurs get unstuck and build freedom of choice.”
