Brandon LaRue of Well Built Humans is a man of passion and integrity. He is passionate about health and fitness but his interests have spilled over into many other areas including coaching, mentorship of young athletes and most recently an author.
Well Built Humans is Brandon’s outlet for his passions where they can be blended and used to help others reach their full potential. He aims to help others be ‘well built’ in their faith, as a person, partner, leader, community member.
Keeping Above the Noise
“I really control what I allow into my mind,” Brandon says. “I keep my mind set on the things that matter in life by reading my Bible and devotional first thing in the morning helps set my attitude for the day. I open the day with good input. I close the day with good input too.”
Working out is also a way Brandon keeps his mindset strong each day. Regardless how you feel about working out but doing it anyways helps practice discipline but also fuels your energy for others throughout the rest of the day.
Living An Inspired Life
Obstacles are inevitable for each one of us. Instead of falling victim to our circumstances how can we be inspired and rise above the difficulties? “Be fascinated, not frustrated,” Brandon encourages.
Instead of asking “why me?” in a negative context, what if we asked ourself “wow, why me?!” in an inspired tone? How can I rise up to this challenge to met it? How can you flip the perspective to live an inspired life?
Brandon and his wife Jenny have 3 children: Brooks, Livia and Bradie. Their second child, Livia, was born with a mutated gene that disrupts the potassium distribution in her body leaving her with low muscle tone and delayed cognitive development.
Ever since Livia was born, Brandon noticed her ways of communicating were special and the lessons she wanted to share were plentiful and profound so he started writing about them. As he shared Livia’s lessons with others, people were moved and kept promoting Brandon to write a book…and he did.
Special Strength: Lessons from Livia is a collection of 20 different lessons that will challenge you, soften you and stir something in you to look at the world in a new way.
Livia has taught Brandon, and soon many others, the power of surrendering the outcome and living in the moment. When you release control you are free to take the moments as they come and excuse yourself from the anticipate of anxious moments and unknown obstacles.
Through Livia’s life and a grounding faith that covers all circumstances, hope continues to fuel Brandon & Jenny’s family and perspective. Hope continues to move and inspire their gaze towards eternity.
