About Us

Brick By Brick Academy is an amazing platform that guides and educates students on how to become successful in life and become a greater version of themselves. Our program consists of fitness resources to increase your health and achieve your fitness goals. We also provide education on the skills necessary for personal development, business development, and financial literacy. You may not have any experience or know what next steps to take to better yourself. The curriculum is a road map geared for success. Follow the blueprint to see the results you have envisioned to be successful. To be successful, sometimes you have to disconnect to reconnect. Let’s reconnect and build with one brick at a time.

FOUNDER

Gerald Hearns – Executive

Gerald Hearns was intrigued by the fitness and business possibilities to impact his community. While using social media, he turned his Instagram page into his personal laboratory. He began to document his journey from his personal life, athletic career, business life, and more. Realizing that many people want better for themselves, but do not have the guidance, the extra push, or financial capabilities at times, motivated Gerald to strategically build Brick By Brick Academy of Health & Wealth from the ground up. Gerald and his academy has now been able to impact over 10,000 people. We look forward to making a positive impact on you once you enroll into the Brick By Brick Academy.
