  • Charles Bridges, Personal Trainer

    Years of Experience

    Credentials

    • Brookebush Certified Personal Trainer
    • Certified Human Movement Specialist

    Charles has 32 years of experience in the fitness industry. He holds certifications from the Brookebush Institute as a Human Movement Specialist and Certified Personal Trainer. His passion for fitness and helping people was ignited at the age of 18 when a former power lifter took him under his wing after Charles dropped 135 # the first time he attempted to bench press. Charles excelled in football, basketball, and power lifting. Charles believes that what’s missing in today’s image-obsessed fitness climate is an emphasis on the simple joys of movement. To this end, his methods seek to improve key fitness indicators like strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular endurance while also reacquainting clients with natural skills and patterns of movement that tend to deteriorate as a result of the modern world’s demands.
