Founder/CEO, Gerald Hearns

Brick by Brick is a health & wealth business in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Since inception, we are dedicated to providing our BrickByBrick family with premier products of quality,  value and a story.

Since inception, Brick By Brick Academy of Health & Wealth is dedicated to providing our Brick By Brick family with premier services, inspiration, and quality products. We have a passion to serve others and have provided career based opportunities, brand ambassador opportunities, internships, scholarships and more.

Instant gratification has caused many individuals to not trust the process in whatever that it may be that they may want to accomplish in life. Whether it is fitness and health transformation to financial growth, we are committed to inspiring others to grind in every aspect of life.

Our program began with the vision of Gerald Hearns as he has exemplified such leadership, encouragement, work ethic, and consistency. Success does not happen overnight. Most times, individuals are not willing to give up certain things in their life because they look at it as a sacrifice.

Here at Brick By Brick Academy of Health & Wealth, we encourage individuals to shift their thinking by creating healthy habits by looking at their transformations as investments. Perspective is very important. 

“Grind” in every aspect of life

Brick by Brick is committed to inspiring every person to “GRIND” in every aspect of life. We have a passion to help today’s dream-chasers turn those dreams into goals,  brick by brick.

The Academy Academy Take Off

Gerald Hearns, CEO & Founder, had a vision  to become a business owner since the age of six.

With help from his mom, he began selling lemonade, then scrapping aluminum and copper that he would use to buy materials to build hand modeled cars out of solar power and battery circuits.

Beginning in Business

Throughout his middle school and high school years, he created a successful business model by selling food, snacks, and beverages.

Gerald’s cousin, Terryon Chapman approached him with a business opportunity to sell his F.H.G. (For His Glory) polka-dot socks which he offered at $7.00 a pair.

Gerald sold numerous socks before going off to college at Florida A&M University. Gerald was not offered an athletic scholarship so he had to depend on academic grants combined with the money he saved from selling snacks and socks to pay for college at Florida A&M University.

He envisioned producing his own brand of elite socks and launched his sock line called “Get Beefy,” with twenty-two different color combinations. The socks had great quality and were sold at an affordable price, benefiting inner-city youth from the Tamarind community in West Palm Beach, Florida, where he grew up.

Start of Brick by Brick Gear

Despite much adversity Gerald continues to hustle and grind, serving as a role model to pave the way for youth of our country.

He believes in serving and guiding others while mentoring and teaching our youth.

The dream of becoming a CEO has turned into reality as his elite sock business has grown into a sports apparel business, Brick by Brick Gear!

Why is Brick By Brick Academy Important?

Brick By Brick Academy of Health & Wealth is important because of the lives that we have been able to positively impact. We tailored our mission to inspire a person to increase their health. A person may go and pay hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars for a personal trainer. We ask our clients, what kind of health challenges are you facing? Some may respond and say, “I have been struggling from depression, I was ready to give up on life,” or even tell us that they feel embarrassed when they go to the gym to workout.

We realized that patience is very important when we work with our clients. We take our time by guiding our clients through fitness exercises, constant mentorship, and even provide our clients with a FREE body assessment analysis. Our Founder, Gerald Hearns, has 18 years of fitness experience and has met the personal training qualifications by getting certified through the International Sports Science Association. From playing Division 1 college football, being trained by top-tier strength & conditioning coaches from University of Alabama, while playing at Florida A&M University and Florida Atlantic University, to being trained by Top 10 NFL Pro day facilities amongst great trainers and players, the knowledge and experience that Gerald has gained is impeccable. With Gerald’s vision, he realized that life is about serving others. Each of us needs some type of support and goes through hard times.

Our academy has worked with over 30 clients that were either overweight, did not have a proper meal plan that fit their health goals, or the right level of patience from their instructor. Within thirty to ninety days of working with our clients, we have received testimonials of such tremendous growth and excitement to be a part of our family. When it comes to our youth, they look for father figures, mentors, someone that they can trust, or even programs that can help guide them towards their success. Brick By Brick Academy of Health & Wealth has played a role in the Palm Beach County, Florida community.

Within the first two years of launching, Brick By Brick Academy has sponsored 8 young men with brand new football cleats to help them begin their sports journey. We have made efforts to support our local homeless community with great support from our Brick By Brick Academy team, community supporters, and even family as we have provided over 720 meals within six weeks during the covid-19 pandemic. Brick By Brick Academy of Health & Wealth has been fortunate enough to serve single-family and low-income homes, by providing clothing resources and more. We have also partnered with various business owners and organizations such as Student ACES to expand our impact on others in various communities. Through our partnership with Student ACES for Leadership non-profit, Gerald Hearns has been able to speak on our company’s behalf alongside the Student ACES team to impact over 24,000 young men and women at various high schools throughout the state of Florida after being the first Student ACE in 2014.

Brick By Brick Academy is also important because we have trained athletes and mentored them to serve as a guide for their transitions into high school, college, and post college journey. Parents have reached out to us, seeking for personal training, help with financial growth, and even support with learning how to invest their money into the financial services that we offer. It has been a tremendous honor for us to be featured by our local new stations such as CBS12 News, ESPN 106.3, CW34 News, and other major platforms. We have been fortunate to have our Founder, Gerald Hearns and our company featured in the Boca Raton Observer Magazine, Palm Beach Connects Magazine, Palm Beach County Voice Magazine, Voyage Magazine of Miami and more. We will continue to serve others and inspire others to build with one brick at a time.

What are Our Current Goals?

Our primary focus for Brick By Brick Academy of Health & Wealth is fitness. We would love to continue thriving throughout the United States, helping others build their health ‘BRICK BY BRICK.’ By doing so, we launched a all-in-one virtual program that entails custom fitness videos, custom weekly workouts, multiple categories of meal recipes and smoothies, and more. When you invest into our virtual platform, you gain unlimited and free access to our additional features we have included. We would love to increase the number of households that invest into our program. We believe that families can build a great comradery by doing family workouts together from home or any suitable environment. Parents will be able to watch financial videos with their children, learning about how money works, how to build their credit, how to launch a business and more.

We like to put into perspective by asking our potential clients, how much do you think it costs for a personal trainer per session or for a weekly fee? We typically get responses such as, “$60 – $100 plus per session.” Our next step is helping others identify on average how much a custom meal plan may cost to use as a form of guidance while on their fitness journey. Statistics state that on average, personal trainers charge $60 – $80 per week for custom meal plans. When it comes to learning about financial literacy, ways to build tax-free income, debt and credit management, learning ways to grow their money compounded interest and more could cost hundreds and sometimes thousands when having a financial consultant. There are “new entrepreneurs” that seek to start a business no matter what age they may consider to start their journey. Education is very important to us and we have served young men and women to consult them and launch their own businesses. Combining the necessary resources to help you build your health and wealth, is valued at over $3000 per month.

Our current goal is to be a resource for you to accomplish your health goals, personal life goals, and financial goals for as little as $3.00 – $4.00 a day when you invest into our mobile Brick By Brick Academy platform. We want to embrace those who support our vision and inspire others that no matter where you are at in life to keep pushing. Our goal is to continue impacting young men and women by providing them in depth stories such as Gerald Hearns, for them to feel empowered and increase their hunger for success.

Brick By Brick Academy has set goals to increase our number of Brand Ambassadors to reach more parents, youths, businesses, and organizations to continue making an impact in others lives. We encourage you to invite others to join our fitness program and engage on our social media platforms in our private and/or public page to see testimonials and giveaways. We want to honor those that meet their different fitness goals. Our goal is to do monthly prizes and weekly recognitions. We love bringing people together from all over to share ideas, network, and become a greater version of themselves. We love you and hope that you consider to enroll into our academy. Visit our enroll page and view our enrollment packages. Please spread the word about our academy and consider making a contribution towards our Brick By Brick Academy Scholarship.
