Hi, I’m Charlie,
I'm one of the fitness advisors here at Southdown’s leisure and your newest YourPersonalTrainer here at Southwick!

I have always been massively into health and fitness and have a background as a competitive tumble gymnast turned coach. After a bad ankle injury stopped me from competing, my interest turned to coaching and helping the next generation of children become the gymnasts I wanted to be. I continue to teach gymnastics to this day where I now teach a wider range of abilities and ages including adults. During covid, I discovered my passion for working out and using strength training as a way to make myself stronger, both physically and mentally, whilst also trying to burn off the belly from the naughty stocked snacks.

Once covid was over, I was hooked and I had made great personal progress and I decided I wanted to share that passion with the world, so I took my Level 2 Fitness Advisor Qualification and got myself straight into the gym to share my knowledge and skills. A little over a year later I took my Level 3 Personal training qualification and I am now happy to announce that I can offer you 1-1 personally tailored training sessions and programs so you can get the best results out of your body.

Got a fitness goal you want to achieve? With me as your personal trainer we can discuss and plan the best strategies for getting you to where you want to be through a mixture of resistance and circuit based training. I aim to offer a fun and friendly environment so that you can feel totally comfortable within the gym and its surroundings and we can get the very most out of our sessions together. Each program will be individually tailored to your specific goals with an emphasis on progressive overload with perfect technique and programming so we can steadily push ourselves towards achieving amazing results and being the best person we can be.

I cannot recommend Charlie enough to other people. If you are looking for a Personal Trainer in the Shoreham/Hove area you can't go wrong with him. He has helped me get back into fitness after a challenging year away from working out, listening to my goals, then creating a training plan to meet these. I am 3 months in, and have surprised myself with what I can achieve. Overall great person to train with, even if he does sneakily increase the weight!

Charlie is absolutely fantastic at what he does! His profound knowledge is truly impressive, and he's always willing to provide guidance and suggest alternative approaches. He not only listened to my fitness goals but also played a pivotal role in improving my form, enabling me to achieve better muscle activation during weight training. Whenever I encountered challenges or felt stuck, he was quick to make necessary adjustments. Charlie has been an invaluable mentor on my fitness journey, and I'm immensely grateful for his support!

A well deserved five star rating. Charlie takes a person centred approach to his sessions and plans workouts to meet your requirements. The programs are designed to keep you motivated and engaged, encouraging you to reach your goals! I would highly recommend Charlie as a Personal Trainer, whether you are just starting out or needing a change up from your usual routine, he's dynamic and a good motivator and listener. Granted, you will feel the burn, after a program.
