The influx of trainers when I first started it was maybe 10 training facilities in long beach now it has to be over 200 as well as people training in the park and the beach that are not qualified to be trainers. It has made it more of a competitive market with the unexperience trainers low balling the prices.

How is Better Bodies Fitness Long Beach involved with the community?
My non profit is Kid’s Fitness: Say Yes to Life, a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization founded in 2010 as a direct result of the increase in unfit children in the school system coupled with a decline in school funding for sports, athletic and nutrition education programs. Children come to school lethargic, uninterested and unable to focus for the school day. We inspire kids to live a life filled with good health, success, success, fitness and abundance.
We have developed a program to interface with the child’s home, school and community to counteract the negative environment they face on a daily basis.
Say Yes to Life provides children of all ages, all fitness levels and all backgrounds the opportunity to develop healthy habits. We offer:
- Fitness and Athletic Programs
- Nutrition Education
- Mentoring for Success – Life Strategies
- Parent Education
- Sports Camps
- Goal Setting
Our goal is to meet every child right where they are now and help them grow into what they dream to become. We teach them to Drem Big and inspire their confidence to reach their highest ambitions. They learn the progressive nature of accepting where they are, set short term and long term goals, develop and action plan, work the paln, track their progress and teach them to be resourceful to reach heights they once thought were unattainable!
In addition to fitness, Chuckie is dedicated to supporting the community through his Say “Yes” to Life foundation and is actively involved in numerous charities.
Do you have any future plans for Better Bodies Fitness Long Beach?
To expand to more of sports training move to a 5k plus facilities. Keep Building the brand educated future trainers on what it really is to be in charge of someones fitness results.
What is the best advice that you received and who did it come from?
“In order to be successful in live you must first believe you can.”
