Working out with the world champion Boston Celtics

Bryan Doo, a 1995 sports and exercise science graduate, has made it to the big leagues…literally.

 As the strength and conditioning coach for the 2007-2008 World Champion Boston Celtics basketball team, Doo—pictured here with the “Big 3” Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, and Ray Allen—helps players drop pounds, add muscle, and sometimes alleviate a little attitude.

Doo believes his body strengthening techniques help athletes to improve self-discipline, boost self-esteem, and expand their outlook on life. “I believe that God has shown me that I can help change and shape young athletes into better athletes, and also to be good citizens,” he said.

Seeing more than muscle in the athletes he works with enables Doo to influence players both on and off the court, freely imparting his love for God as a means to provide balance for both himself and the players, especially while on the road. “I try to be an example of God’s love to the people that I interact with,” he said. “I’ve also helped out with Bible studies while on-the-road with athletes and participated in a Bible study in the Boston area with athletes from the Celtics, Red Sox professional baseball team, and Patriots professional football team, many of whom have served as strong witnesses.”

Those intrinsic rewards are what sustain Doo, now entering his sixth season with the Celtics. “One thing I am never asked to do is deny my faith,” he said. “This is something I take pride in and love about my job.”
