“The wheel doesn’t roll if you’re missing a spoke.” — Charles Staley
Seems obvious, right? But when it comes to the context of your life — where spokes are represented by the physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, financial, and sexual realms and are satisfied through things like family, work, friends, hobbies, personal time, relationships, and health and fitness — chances are your wheel isn’t rolling the way it could be.
This is Charles Staley’s specialty: working with people as their guide, mentor, and coach to help them reclaim missing spokes, or simply true what is already there. Charles is recognized globally as an innovative coach and thought leader in the world of health and fitness, having authored thousands of articles and made appearances on both CBS’s This Morning and NBC’s Today Show. At 56-years old, “skinny” and lean with a 400lb squat, 510lb deadlift, and a max rep chin-up record of 17, he considers himself to be in the best shape of his entire life.
Now, his focus is on the over-fifty population, coaching them both in person and virtually — and helping them build muscle, gain strength, and increase their confidence so they will have the strength, endurance, stamina, and flexibility to move well into the later stages of their lives.
Join us in the podcast where Charles gets into specifics about how he coaches, what he works on with his clients, what his pre-workout warm-up is (something I’ve never heard of or tried before), how he prescribes food macros, and the fundamental human movements upon which he bases all his exercise and workout prescriptions.
