As a cocktail waitress hanging ten in Hawaii, she never thought she would be in this field, let alone that fitness would be her life. But when she started she never had a doubt that this was her purpose. She flew to California to take her certification exams, attended IDEA conventions, and became one of the first Hawaii certified instructors as well as a representative of the IDEA state. Today she is a Senior Fitness Specialist and works with baby boomers and their families in fitness centers. Now she wears yoga pants and sports bras.
Charli loves helping seniors realize how wonderful it is to move around easily and better enjoy life well into the 90s and beyond by educating them about their bodies, training them to build muscle and guide them through meditation.
This is their ACE evolution.
