After a combination of graduating high school, a few years of college, marriage, and a newborn, Charles found himself at a very low fitness level. He restarted his fitness journey in 2008 by losing over 70 lbs. Charles first tried CrossFit in 2011 at a small local gym in Greensburg, Kentucky and, after an "on again, off again" relationship, attended the CF-L1 in March 2019. Charles has competed in 5ks, 10ks, and obstacle races and has qualified nationally in strongman and powerlifting.
