“Working out with Charlie has been life-changing. He has helped me to make healthy eating and proper exercise a way of life– and as a result, the pounds have melted away. I’ve shed 25 pounds in 4 months and have never felt better. I have been so impressed with Charlie’s professionalism and vast knowledge. He has balanced pushing me with keeping me injury free during my workouts. Charlie is more than a personal trainer, he is a life coach. I feel like he is committed to my success and a partner in my personal journey to be the healthiest woman I can possibly be.”

“I have been going to CR Fitness for the last 8 1/2 years. It’s a terrific place to exercise. The owner, Charlie, is extremely knowledgeable in every aspect of fitness and nutrition. It’s a stress free environment and a great place to get in shape or lose a few pounds.”

– Ed, Franklin Lakes, NJ

“In late March of 2015 I found myself weighing in at 297 pounds, with little energy, no cardiovascular stamina, sore joints and generally feeling lousy about myself. I decided to seek out a personal trainer, something I had never believed in, to see if that route could help me get back into shape.


Charlie is exceptional at designing a program for the individual, tailored toward my needs and progressing at a pace that is safe for me but effective. I saw results very quickly and I started to get more lean and fit. The pounds came off quickly at first and we continued to set and adjust personal goals. I lost 20 pounds quickly, the next 10 were tougher and I hit a bit of a plateau after 30 pounds but Charlie was ready with some tweaks and adjustments to my workout and some very knowledgeable discussion about food and nutrition and I was able to work through the plateau and have now lost over 40 pounds in my first year of working out with Charlie.


More important than the number on the scale however, is the fact that I feel great, mentally and physically. With Charlie’s guidance I feel like I have developed and continue to develop life-long healthy habits with regard to weight training, cardio training and nutrition. Joints that used to be chronic problems for me: back, knees, hips, shoulders and elbows are no longer a problem and it has been a very long time since I’ve looked and felt as physically fit as I do right now. I have developed greater range of motion and flexibility as well as strength and I find myself able to do things physically and athletically that I haven’t been able to do for 15 to 20 years.

I actually feel so good and feel so strong that sometimes I do need to remind myself that I am not 20 years younger, but it’s a good reminder to have to give yourself.

CR Fitness helped me understand how to approach working out safely and slowly after a back injury. A thoughtful approach that will get you real results. They taught me how to build strength, increase mobility and manage diet to improve my fitness goals into my fifties and beyond.

Charlie is the best personal trainer I’ve worked with. He develops a personalized program to fit your need and age. Being older, my concern for strength and flexibility has started to become an issue. Charlie is extremely knowledgeable and individualized a program specifically for my needs. He continues to take CE courses to continue to develop his knowledge. I highly recommend CR Fitness for anyone, any age that is looking for a great personal trainer.

I have been a member at CR Fitness for over a year and have never felt better. I love training at CR Fitness, Charlie is very knowledgeable with nutrition and training.
Been going to CR Fitness for 6 years. Charles is great guy very friendly and very knowledgeable. One on one training no crowds I can do a circuit routine with no waiting between sets and I can bang out a one hr work out at my pace what ever that may be. I can’t do that in a traditional gym. I’m not there to socialize when I want to work out I want to work out

I have trained at CR Fitness since they first opened up 13 years ago. Charlie’s training has enabled me to pass all of my military fitness tests up until my recent retirement. He challenges you in a safe way while respecting your limits. His positive attitude has been a great influence on my life. I highly recommend CR Fitness to anyone who wants to get stronger and get in better shape.
