Six-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady is one of the most accomplished athletes of the past two decades. With 17 Division Titles and nine Super Bowl appearances, Brady’s accolades both on and off the field have inspired a generation of young athletes to pursue their greatest potential.
Born and raised in San Mateo, California, Brady has always been an athlete, playing baseball, basketball, and of course football from a young age. After graduating high school, Brady attended the University of Michigan from 1995-1999, where he fought hard to become the first-string quarterback. His persistent work, intensive training and inherent athletic ability resulted in Brady finishing his college career ranked as the third best quarterback in Michigan history.
Drafted by the New England Patriots in the second-to-last round of the 2000 NFL draft as the 199th pick, Brady has won six Super Bowl titles with the team, including one at the age of 41 – more than any other quarterback in NFL history. Throughout his unprecedented football career, he has shattered numerous NFL records. Brady is the first player in NFL history to accumulate 80,000 total yards, holds the most game wins of any quarterback, the most consecutive division titles – eleven – and has the second-most career touchdown passes of any player in history.
Family is the foundation of all of Brady’s endeavors. In 2009, he married environmental champion, global activist, best-selling author and supermodel Gisele Bündchen. He is the proud and supportive father of three children – John, 12, Benjamin, 10, and Vivian, 7.
Throughout his enduring career, Brady and his team have integrated a holistic and natural approach to health and wellness through preparation, performance and recovery. In 2014, Brady founded TB12, his performance lifestyle brand, to share his approach and wellness movement with a global audience. Brady’s TB12 brand delivers personalized, comprehensive programming to a worldwide audience and integrates revolutionary concepts in deep-force muscle pliability work, hydration, nutrition, functional strength & conditioning, and cognitive health. TB12 supports athletes through an omni-channel approach that incorporates physical locations and an expansive growth plan, immersive digital experiences, and innovative functional products.
In 2019, Brady and TB12 celebrated the opening of their flagship location in Boston on Boylston Street, where clients can participate in small group fitness classes, wellness events and one-on-one training to promote athletic longevity, regardless of skill level. They plan to open sites in New York, Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London and Toronto. In 2015, Brady published his motivational book, The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance, a #1 New York Times Bestseller.
Throughout his career, Brady has always prioritized the importance of philanthropy. With his TB12 Foundation, Brady helps young athletes maximize their potential by providing opportunities for holistic wellness education and elite training. He also maintains long-standing relationships with a number of nonprofit organizations, including Make-A-Wish, which creates life-changing wishes for children diagnosed with a critical illness.
Brady’s achievements throughout his successful career include being honored as ESPY ‘NFL Best Player,’ Associated Press’ ‘Male Athlete of The Year,’ Sports Illustrated’s ‘Sportsman of the Year,’ Sporting News’ ‘Athlete of the Decade,’ and was named to the NFL 100th Anniversary ‘All-Time Team,’ among others.
