"Fitness is a journey, not a destination."
I am a Master Certified Personal Trainer and owner of OC Personal Training. I train from a private personal training studio, OC Personal Training here in Irvine, Orange County. I have five nationally accredited personal trainer certifications:
NASM, CES, PES, NCSF, PFIT, & CPR, providing unparalleled training knowledge and expertise.
I started from one of the largest Personal Training fitness chains in the country. Through my passion and dedication, I quickly rose through the personal trainer ranks and became the Master Trainer that trained all personal trainers in the chain. At the age of 20, I became Fitness Manager at one of the company's busiest personal trainer locations. I became dissatisfied with this position after seeing first hand that the primary goal of the company was financial gain rather than helping people meet their fitness goals.
In 2008, I left my position to start up my own Personal Training facility that would reflect my values. That same year I founded OC Personal Training to provide quality care to each client in order to help them reach their fitness goals.
"My clients success is my success. I love helping people reach their fitness goals. They feel empowered and confident - and I love being able to give that back to them." - Brad Glaser

Programs Specializing In Correcting Posture Balance While Personal Training : Our personal Trainer programs creates balanced posture while you achieve your fitness and health goals. Imagine a personal Trainer program where you can get physical therapy, proper exercise, and a private 1 on 1 personal trainer in one session. Our Personal Trainers in Orange County specialize in Correcting and improving your posture while you burn fat and build muscle. Imagine the foundation of a building is the same as your joints, if the foundation is weak, and you add weight or push the building to the side, then the building will sway and fall. Just like the building's foundations if your joints structural integrity is weak due to a muscle imbalance, then you should not apply any pressure or workout, or you will feel joint pains or get injured.
Burning fat is very simple with a personal trainer. Its so easy when you have a structured personal training program proven to work. Here is how fat loss works. Say for example your body burns 2,000 calories a day and you consume 2,500 calories in that day, your body will store 500 calories as something. That something is fat. Now, if you burn 2,000 calories in a day, and eat 1,500 calories, you will lose 500 calories worth of something. That something is fat. So all you have to do is know your RMR, understand your activity level, understand how many calories on average you burn per day, and understand how many calories you should eat per day. Making sure your personal training is on a weekly basis to retain your muscle, when you are in a calorie deficit. If you feel like you are not losing any weight, move more and eat less. It's that simple.
A customized nutrition program is ideal for anyone who wants to see immediate results. 70% of all weight loss management results is due to a good nutrition program. So it doesn't matter how much you workout, you can never out-burn the calories you eat. Our nutrition program targets your lifestyle and ensures you will be able to maintain it long term. We don't suggest a diet for you to be on, we emphasize a lifestyle change so you will have longer lasting results. Depending on your activity level, work, and lifestyle, we will fine tune a perfect nutrition program that will be easy for you to stick to.
Brad Glaser specializes in exercises that correct muscle imbalances. Muscle Imbalances lead to bad posture, decreased workout efficiency, sport performance, and ultimately injury. If the body is currently doing personal training while under stress with a muscle imbalance, it will break down. Its not a matter of if, but when. There are many benefits to having muscle balance. Increased Range of Motion, Increased Muscle Strength, Increased Tendon and Ligament Tensile Strength, decreased chance of injury and joint pain, Improved Posture, Increased exercise efficiency, Increased Joint Health, and Increased Neuromuscular control of muscles. Being able to provide muscle balancing while you reach your personal training weight loss goal is everything you need to have the best healthy, fit, functioning body.
FLEXIBILITY & MASSAGE
Our customized flexibility program targets all the tight muscles of the body through releasing specific tight muscles through massage and stretching. Releasing adhesions before stretching helps lengthen muscles and prevent injury. It also helps the opposite muscles (antogonists) fire more easier. If you stretch weak or overly-stretched muscles it can result to further joint dysfunction or injury. Having a customized stretch and massage program with a personal trainer ensures safe and efficient workouts.
