Brainerd High School Hires New Athletic Trainer

Brainerd High School student-athletes have endured a new regimen for their respective training sessions, as there is a new athletic trainer/strength and conditioning coach working with all athletes in grades 9-12.

Hired through Essentia Health, Alex Brodjeski has served as a trainer at Concordia-St. Paul University, Elon University, College of William and Mary, as well as Carleton College. While working with kids has been an adjustment for Brodjeski, his love for training has not changed.

“One of the big things that drives me is helping passionate people, and if somebody is fired up, I want to help them get to where they want to go,” said Brodjeski. “So helping passionate people is my favorite part of it. You get somebody with fire in their eyes that wants to go get something and I want to help them go get that, whether it’s helping them with biochemistry homework like I used to back at the University of Iowa, or if it’s putting them underneath barbells.”

Brodjeski played college football for four years at Gustavus Adolphus College, and also earned his master’s degree in human physiology at the University of Iowa.
