I met Brad Nachtigal in 1984 when we both worked at the 24 Hour Nautilus club in Downey, CA. My former wife saw how stressed I was working mega hours at the high pressure job and told me I needed a hobby, so she got me a camera to replace the one that had been stolen years before. So I asked Brad if he wanted to trade his time modeling for some prints he could use and he said yes. The photo shoot went so well that he was able to use some of the prints to help him get a Kodak commercial produced by the prestigious J. Walter Thompson agency, an MTV music video, etc. - all of which helped support his training for the Olympics.
Fast forward to 2018, and Brad was kind enough to invite me to visit him and his wonderful family in Hutchinson, KS. There I met his lovely, gracious wife of 25 years, Angie, and see the incredible log home they had built on their farm land. During the course of our visit, I learned that Brad - who STILL has chiseled abs at 59 - had authored a comprehensive guide to getting and staying in shape, Physical Results: The Most Direct Route.
Naturally, I talked this good looking, loving Mom and Dad into doing a photo shoot - hey, it's something Brad and I have to do every 34 years or so :-) - with their gorgeous daughter, Haylee. It was a blast! Not present for the shoot, but ever present in our conversations were siblings Caden, Abby and Ashley.
