    I don't really exercising. Like I really, really hate it. But somehow Brad has convinced me to show up biweekly for the last two months. Part of it is that I have a pretty large incentive to show up financially. I pay for the month at the beginning and would be out a fair chunk of change if I skipped a session. He is really nice and doesn't take issue with the fact that I loathe every single exercise we do. And I make sure to voice my displeasure as I am going. He is really patient and never makes me feel bad if I can't do something, altho he is always pushing me to try harder. I like that the gym is private. I am semi-convinced that people only go to large gyms to laugh at the people who suck at working out. I realize this isn't true but I still dislike working out around other people. And I find the sheer scope of regular gyms intimidating. I know very little of working out, but Brad is always making sure I have the correct form and posture. Sometimes that means holding down a shoulder or modifying an exercise. He keeps count of the repetitions so I can't cheat and count by 2's or anything :p

    OC Personal Training has exceeded my expectations of personal training. I came to OC Personal Training over a year ago through a group on. I was in a car accident 3 years ago, and since then it has been very challenging for me to be as active as I once was. I tried physical therapy, chiropractor, acupuncture, yoga, meditation, massage therapy, and sports medicine doctors. It seemed like these methods were not good enough to help me with my injuries. I felt so far away from resuming the sports that I used to be able to do, it was debilitating. I came here to try a new method, and to my surprise this method has been the most successful at producing results by far! Brad uses techniques of physical and massage therapy to not only treat but help prevent injuries from happening again. I was able to release most of the scar tissue that has been holding me back. Now I'm so close to having my full range of motion again!! It's been great, and I've even been able to resume my sport and my body is starting to feel normal :). Brad concentrates on getting to the root of the problem. Once that is deciphered, we do specific exercises and stretches to prevent injuries from happening again. I'm so glad I found these guys. Brad's knowledge of the body and body movement is far more detailed and personalized over any other physical therapist I've worked with. This is personal training at its best. I can't wait to keep on improving and getting stronger at my sport again. I'm enjoying this process. Thank you!!!

    Brad is a true expert in his field and has an impeccable eye for form and alignment. I started working out with him a couple years ago to get in better shape for my wedding. Although I've always enjoyed running and boot camps, I've never had a personal trainer. Total game changer as Brad helped me understand my imbalances and got me doing proper strength training. Coupled with cardio on my own time and staying on track with my nutrition, I saw results quickly and effectively. Brad is also a great resource for trigger point therapy (you will cry but feel great after getting those knots released!). Brad always challenges me with every workout he throws my way. He continues to push me and assess my goals with the understanding that life happens and I won't always stay on track. There are two other trainers, who I'm sure also do a great job.

    OC Personal Training offers personal training, corrective exercises, and massage therapy. In the first 6 months of training there, I lost 40 pounds, went from a 36" to a 32" waist, reduced my body fat from 27% to 16%, and dramatically improved my cholesterol numbers. I've seen their other clients get results from weight loss to increased mobility and they seem to do a great job of retaining them which speaks volumes about the quality of their training. If you are looking for a packed gym with meat heads making steroid induced animal noises, look somewhere else. But if you want a holistic approach that focuses on diet, proper form, stretching, and massage, OC Personal Training is for you. Their prices are reasonable and they offer free fitness assessments. I highly recommend them.

How did you get started teaching?

Amateur Bodybuilder who loves to teach. So I decided to teach people how to get in shape without hurting themselves. Which naturally turned into rehabbing post injuries for countless clients. From knee pain, back pain, foot pain, neck pain, shoulder pain etc. While getting clients to their weight management goals.

I am certified in physical therapy rehabbing joints and also getting people the maximal amount of sports performance as possible. So I have seen many clients and can help anyone. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Listening to my clients tell me how many compliments they get from their co-workers. For example my client Veronique said "People can't believe I'm a psychologist, they keep asking if I'm a fitness model."


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure your trainer is certified with multiple certifications and has 5+ years of experience in training clients.. I used to be a fitness manager and part of my responsibility was to train trainers. Most of this industry are filled with trainers who train as a part-time job while studying another field. They charge much less per session due to that. The serious trainers have a degree or multiple certifications and have multiple years in experience. Also trainers who own their own fitness facility shows you how dedicated and successful they are getting their clients in shape. Their prices tend to be much higher, but you get what you pay for. Many train at public spaces which is fine, but not having a brick and mortar business isn't professional. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What their motivation is to reach their goal. You may have the tools and knowledge to get there, but make sure you know how will you stay motivated. Fitness is a journey not a destination. Treat it that way and fitness will always be apart of your life.
