Charlie joined the gym as a teenager, back when we were still operating as a Fitness 19 and he has been with us as an employee since 2014. He is an ACSM Certified Personal Trainer, a USA Powerlifting Coach and has a B.S in Psychology from the University at Buffalo. Throughout his time as a coach Charlie has worked with people of varying needs from youth athletes looking to improve their sport to elder clients looking to develop movement and pain management.
When Charlie first came to the gym he was focused on Physical Body Building, where he excelled by receiving his PRO card in 2017 and winning 1st place in the men’s NMA Physique Navis division. In recent years, Charlie has taken more interest in strength and has been competing in local Powerlifting meets.
Outside of the gym Charlie is working on his graduate degree at Canisius College where he will graduate with a certification to teach Physical Education, and enjoys golfing, snow sports, spending time with his friends, playing chess and playing guitar!
