Is Bradley Martyn Natural?
Bradley Martyn’s physique is the subject of much discussion on online bodybuilding forums. Many fitness experts question whether his ripped physique results from performance-enhancing drugs like steroids or the result of hard work and dedication.
On MuscleAndBrawn.com, Ernst Peibst speculates that Bradley is indeed doing or has done steroids. He chronicled Martyn’s journey from a skinny teenager to a ripped adult and conjectured that his growth was unnatural. Ernst also pointed to his “extreme muscle thickness” and “flushed/red skin” and came to the conclusion that he was probably on anabolic steroids. Additionally, Ernst also commented on how Martyn has never denied steroid allegations, which confirmed his theory as far as he is concerned.
Furthermore, Isaac Haynes, writing for FitnessDonkey.com, echoed similar sentiments. He further went on to name Deca and Dianabol as possible anabolic steroids that Martyn might be using.
Nevertheless, despite multiple claims pointing in the affirmative, whether or not Bradley Martyn uses steroids is still unsure.
In 2017, Bradley Martyn founded a gym in Woodland Hills, California, called the Zoo Culture gym. The gym membership costs $120 a month, or $1400 a year.
On Yelp.com, the gym is rated 4 out of 5 stars based on 89 reviews. One reviewer called it the “Best gym ever” and spoke highly of the gym equipment.
His Mother Is His Source of Inspiration
A native of San Mateo, California, Bradley Martyn’s childhood was marked with despair. His father committed suicide when Martyn was only six. His mother raised him and his brother all by herself.
My father taking his life. At 6 years old. But it took me damn near 23 years to figure this out https://t.co/za8yuBRkSJ

He considers his mother his biggest inspiration. On Mother’s Day 2018, Martyn posted a picture of himself with his mother. In the accompanying text, Martyn highlighted his family’s struggles after his father’s death and how his mother had to pick up the slack for the entire family.
Among other things, Martyn said:
“To say the least… without you mom none of what I have today would be possible… not only because u birthed me…but because you raised me. Even when I was a little sh*t head and did sh*t head things, u always cared for me and did whatever you could possibly do for me to help me grow.”
Besides running a successful practice and managing several successful social media accounts, Bradley is also an actor with several on-screen credits to his name. He served as an extra in the 2016 horror-comedy Boo! A Madea Halloween. Consequently, he landed the part of Byron in the 2017 sequel, Boo 2! A Madea Halloween.
Additionally, he had cameo appearances in the web series Caught: The Series.
His Workout Plan
Rather than following a strict workout plan, Bradley listens to the needs of his body and works out accordingly. He does not have an all-encompassing routine that he follows every day; some weeks, he works out every day and some weeks is for rest and recovery.
Despite not having a set routine, Bradley still favors some workouts over others. A typical week’s worth of exercise for Bradley looks something like this:
Monday – Chest Workout (Barbell bench press, incline dumbbell press, machine chest press, weighted dips, weighted push-ups)
Tuesday – Back Workout (Wide grip lat pull-down, dumbbell row, bent-over barbell row, strict pull-ups)
Wednesday – Shoulders Workout (Dumbbell press sitting, straight bar front raise, dumbbell lateral raise, cable face pulls, barbell shrugs)
Thursday – Legs/Calves Workout (Barbell Squats, leg extensions, dumbbell lunges, front rack lunges)
Saturday/Sunday – Rest
His Diet Plan
Like his workout routine, Bradley follows a lax meal and diet plan. When he was competing in bodybuilding competitions, Bradley was conscientious about his diet. At the peak of his pro days, Bradley practiced intermittent fasting. A practice popular among bodybuilders, Martyn would not eat anything for 16 hours straight and consume large meals during an eight-hour period.
Now that he has stepped back from the spotlight and into a more coaching role, he is free to be lenient with what he eats. Nonetheless, Bradley never consumes processed food, sugar, alcohol, or caffeine.
A typical day’s meal for Bradley consists of three courses: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. For breakfast, Martyn mostly has salmon, eggs, and whole-wheat toast. Next, he has a healthy burger and steak for lunch. Finally, his dinner typically includes fish, Quinoa, and green salad.
Furthermore, during his YouTube virtual house tour, Martyn offered fans a glimpse into his refrigerator and his diet. Inside the fridge, Martyn had stocked several packets of Trifecta Nutrition. The organic food delivery service offers a wide variety of nutritious food on a weekly rotation cycle.
The food includes vegan and keto recipes as well as other healthy organic food, specially crafted for people trying to lose weight. Martyn has a sponsorship deal with Trifecta Nutrition.
Like most bodybuilders, Martyn consumes a slew of nutrition supplements. He favors whey protein, amino acids, multivitamins, etc.
Besides being an avid consumer of diet supplements, Martyn owns a supplement company called Origin Supplements. Several fitness buffs have favorably reviewed his all-in-one pre-workout supplement and (Branch Chain Amino Acids) BCAA’s + Hydration supplements.
Merch & Clothing
Bradley Martyn is the creator and owner of RawGear, a fitness, and casual clothing and accessories brand. Martyn launched the collection in 2015 and currently has a wide array of men’s and women’s clothing and accessories. The price ranges from $10 to $150.
In addition to tops, shorts, T-shirts, etc., his collection also includes hoodies, jackets, hats, beanies, flip-flops, exercise equipment, and accessories, etc.
Bradley Talks About His Anxiety
Looking at Bradley, no one would imagine that he is anything but confident and outgoing. A social media icon with millions of followers and the face of a fashion brand, Bradley oozes confidence. Nonetheless, despite his physical statures, Bradley suffers from an anxiety disorder.
He revealed via his Instagram in 2017 about struggling with the condition. In the post, he mentioned how he had been ashamed of his affliction for fear of being judged, especially working in the hyper-masculine fitness industry.
He went on to say,
“ANXIETY is no joke …. to the outside world everything might appear fine… normal, like nothing’s wrong… but sometimes inside we can be going through a storm of emotions, fears, pains… everyone deals with their problems internally different from the next person.”
He ended the post by saying,
“… no matter how big or how small your battles are… ONE thing always remains the same… YOU, if YOU are willing to continue to learn and grow to fully understand yourself you will continue to progress and GET BETTER.”
He Rescued Two Dogs Bam and Haze
If not for his fitness videos or social media, Bradley Martyn is most known for fostering two red-nosed Pitbulls, Bam and Haze.
The playful dogs feature in several of Bradley’s workout videos and have become internet celebrities themselves. The Pitbulls are so famous that Bam, one of the pit bulls, has his own Instagram account. The account currently has over 42.2k followers.
In May earlier this year, Bradley adopted another dog. During his house tour, Bradley showed how cared for his dogs really were. Each had their separate dog house as luxurious as his mansion.
He Was Charged for Opening His Gym During the Lockdown
In recent times, Bradley Martyn landed in some hot wars after refusing to shut down his gym even while the COVID-mandated lockdowns were in effect.
The state of California implemented a mandatory lockdown after a spike in COVID cases. Only essential businesses could operate. Despite the restrictions, Martyn continued running his gym and was consequently served court documents on counts of a misdemeanor in October 2020.
“People of the state of California VS Zoo Culture welcome to 2020, where gyms being open is criminal in California. Where mental and physical health is deemed non-essential”,
Martyn wrote on Twitter.
The case is awaiting a verdict.
