My favorite exercise
Every exercise relies on one having a strong core. This is very important if one doesn't want to learn things wrong or compromise with many normal moves. Exercises that train the core are my favorite and I have many.
My favorite quote
Believing that change is possible is the first step!

His knowledge in the field is quite impressive and he knows how to train properly without getting anyone injured. He finds new ways to motivate and push you to your New limits! Highly recommend this awesome guy, you won't be disappointed.
I was lucky to meet Charles, as a trainer he is truly dedicated and motivated. He is very encouraging and has a vast knowledge of his profession. Charles will keep you going, as he strives to challenge you with custom workouts geared towards achieving your fitness goals. I am thankful to have trained with him, I’m more confident in my workouts and have a better understanding of fitness and overall wellness.
When passion meets purpose it becomes contagious. Charles motivates me like none other and his passion is amazing. As a bodybuilding competitor it’s hard to find someone who can help me lose fat and keep my muscle- Charles does it every time. And his knowledge about nutrition and the body makes him a trainer on another level. Charles is a world changer with a huge heart!
This is hands down the best trainer I had! His workouts are challenging but the energy is so great that it made the workouts fun too. My progress working with Charles is unbelievable. I told everyone I know about his classes.
