Client Testimonials

" I started working with Charlie help to increase mobility in my shoulders, so I could do overhead press type exercises and to increase mobility in my hips to improve my kick mobility for Muay Thai. I am an older adult, and was uncertain of how much I could progress in these areas. There are a couple of things I really appreciate about Charlie. The first is that he is very encouraging and has a positive approach to helping me work on these areas. The second is that he is thorough. He took as much time as I needed to understand the goals, to understand the exercises I was doing to improve and why I was doing them. He also has been very supportive between sessions to address any issues or questions I have regarding the work I'm doing. It's been a great experience and I have had really great results."

"I feel like a lot of women (and men) my age walk into the gym with a small sense of dread because we often feel we're getting silently judged in a variety of ways. I think it's a major reason most women shy away from the weight room. For what it's worth, I don't feel like I need to shy away from it anymore, and I attribute a lot of that to you and your help. Keep up the passion and drive you have for health and fitness--it definitely comes through in your training."

" Charlie is a great coach. He helped me to realize areas in which I was weak and made an individual plan that he altered appropriately as we went along. His responsiveness, empathy and flexibility were excellent. Working with Charlie was a great experience and I've seen progress in flexibility - which I'd all but given up on - and situational strength/performance in my tennis game."
