Virginia Beach/Virginia Beach (City), VA 23451

I'm a certified physical fitness specialist/personal trainer with over 10 1/2 years of training experience. I have trained clients of a very wide spectrum ranging from young to old, untrained to trained athletics, pre to post orthopedic/ respiratory/cardiac surgery, and etc... I enjoy the challenge it brings because it pushes me to strive to get better and more informed. I'm a student of the field of Health, Wellness and Fitness. I got my B.S. in Kinesiology from the University of Texas at Tyler and my physical fitness specialist certification from The Cooper Institute in Dallas, Texas. Through practicals, internships and achieving my own personal fitness goals...I decided this was what I wanted to do for a career. I love it and I can't say it enough.

I have worked in a Rehab hospital. Working under the surpervison of some of the best Orthopedic surgeons, Physical therapists, Occupational therapists, Speech therapists, Nutritionist, Dieticians and Atheletic trainers which really broadened up my mind as to the knowledge needed to provide the best service to my clients. I have trained clients both in big gym settings, studio settings, at home settings and outdoors.

If you are looking to get challenged physically inoreder to yield the results you need the contact me. I'm passionate about what I do which in itself is a win-win situation for my clients and me.

    I have been having Charles as my trainer for a number of years now and if it wasn't for him I don't believe I would be walking or moving around as I do. For a woman of 81 years of age I am doing pretty good due to Charles. If I have a bad time with my fussy back he is there to help me put it back in shape again. I've gone to other places and most of the trainers did not know a thing about how to work with a medical reason for using a trainer.

    My husband and I trained with Charles three times a week and found him to be an exceptional trainer. He was attentive, challenging and motivating to both of us. And he became our dear friend.
    We highly recommend him to anyone who wants to get in great shape by a highly trained positive personal trainer.
    You won't be disappointed!

    I have had 4 different personal trainers over the last 13 years and Charles was the best. Each client is special to him and he designs each work-out for that client. I was in the best shape of my life while working out with Charles. I am 75 years old and would not consider any other personal trainer. My time spent in the gym was a wonderful way to begin my day with my very special friend.
