After nearly 20 years as a personal trainer, and with a nod to his graduate degree in clinical psychology from Pepperdine University, every workout with Charles Walz begins with a simple question, “How do you feel today?” It’s a personal approach designed to not only discover how his clients’ feel physically, but mentally, as well. As Charles explains, “Each workout should not only help strengthen the bodies, but also the minds and spirits of my clients. Discovering, first and foremost, how my clients are feeling helps to set the tone for our time together. We all feel differently each day and I want to ensure that the workouts are tailored for maximum benefit—whether my clients feel great and have their A-Games, or maybe need a bit of a pick-me-up.” Upon this check-in, Charles incorporates flexibility, cardio and muscle strength/endurance to craft a multi-faceted, custom workout that targets each client’s individual goals and objectives. Bringing best practices expertise to his work, Charles is certified as a Personal Trainer from the prestigious American College of Sports Medicine with enhanced certification in Advanced Personal Training and Exercise and the Older Adult. He has also been certified as a Group Instructor for Spinning and TRX and as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT-I).
Out of the gym, Charles can be found feeding his passion for the backcountry—backpacking, climbing, snowshoeing and/or cross-country skiing. He’s also never one to miss a long motorcycle tour or good live music.
Charles teaches our TRXtra (TRX and a little more!) classes on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 5:30 pm.
