This respects your anatomy, entire lifestyle priorities and the fact that we are not professional athletes but Modern Humans.


We meet you where you are.

\We tell it straight and true.

We make YOU in CHARGE




"Each session focuses on something specific whether flexibility, core strengthening or lower body.  


I am continually impressed with the range of exercises we use and consistently feel like I am accomplishing something when I finish each session. "


"Though I would sign up for a gym membership here and there, I never took getting into shape as seriously as I have since starting at CHARGE.
 I got into a solid routine and made a point of it to push myself to get into shape."


"Prior to CHARGE, I tried every fad diet to lose weight and a few different workout programs,  without success.
Since I started at CHARGE almost 2 months ago, I feel more energized, I sleep better and I look forward to working out!"

Jamie Pinto

Jamie began his fitness journey at 21 while learning basic lifts and building muscle in his uncle's basement. After moving on to various commercial gyms and experiencing a wider variety of training options, he began researching books and online sources for more inspiration and knowledge. At 30, he delved into yoga to supplement to weight training and made fitness the focal point of his daily life.


In his mid 30’s, Jamie became certified by The National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and shortly thereafter began a mentorship with a  former NBA Strength Coach. He had gained a clear vision on how, what, and when to train and recover and then went on to earn a certification in Functional Range Conditioning (FRC), which is becoming the Gold Standard mobility protocol in professional sports.


From there, Jamie moved on to pursue his peak passion; the Steel Mace. Using this as his choice of conditioning modality he practices daily and is certified by ONNIT, Rik “Mr. Maceman” Brown, and Leo Savage the creator of Steel Mace Flow. 


All in all Jamie is a one stop shop for total body fitness.
