He grew up with a love of sports and fitness, and played baseball for 4 years while in college. After graduating, Charlie became certified as a personal trainer through the National Council on Strength and Fitness. He has also obtained a Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certification in Exercise Nutrition to help educate clients on the importance of healthy behaviors and habits when it comes to their eating.

Charlie enjoys giving support and encouragement to all clients who come to FT looking for a private atmosphere to help them improve their well-being, especially for those who are uncomfortable with the typical gym setting and want a more personal experience. The main focus for Charlie and the training staff is to provide the accountability and motivation that is necessary for clients who want to make significant lifestyle changes. Charlie hopes that everyone's experience at FT-RB is fun, challenging, encouraging, educational, and most of all... rewarding!
