Carmen's Biography

Carmen began her career as a personal trainer in Santa Cruz, Ca. 1973 while attending college pursuing a degree in Physical Education. Eventually her experience landed her the head trainer position and she was hired as training director for the chain of gyms known as Spa Fitness Centers in Northern California. Her duties included teaching all employees at 4 facilities throughout Northern California how to evaluate clients and design a customized personal workout program for each individual. She also created some of the first aerobic classes for groups choreographed to music in the late 1970's. While working for the gym she designed classes called "swimnastics" which were formed to provide a low impact water based workout for individuals.

Throughout the 1980's she continued to teach aerobic classes while pursuing her career as a competitive bodybuilder. She has studied under many professional coaches including world renown professional bodybuilder, trainer Charles Glass. Charles was her coach, trainer, and mentor for 15 years (1990-2005.) Here is what he had to say regarding Carmen: "Carmen Brady is one of the most well rounded trainers in the industry. She is a quick learner, open to new techniques and very reliable. With her, you will reach your potential quickly."

Carmen obtained her current certification through the Private Trainers Association March 1st, 2007. She currently holds a CPR certification through the Red Cross of America. While dabbling into the realm of cinema (aka "Starla" in Napoleon Dynamite), television, magazines and music videos, her true passion at the age of 52, is to help each individual achieve their personal best. After 35 years experience in the fitness industry, she offers years of knowledge at your disposal.
