Charles Staley


"One of the signs of a great teacher is the ability to make the subject matter seem simple. Charles Staley is one of these rare teachers. After listening and talking to him, you suddenly achieve a new awareness of training. You go to the gym and, suddenly, everything makes sense, and you wonder why you haven't been doing it his way since day one." —Muscle Media 2000 Magazine, August 1999

Charles Staley's primary interest is providing inspiration and education for older guys looking to reclaim their physicality and vitality. At age 58, Charles is leaner than ever, injury-free, and in the best shape of his life: a few of his recent bests include a 400-pound squat, a 510-pound deadlift, and a set of 17 chin-ups.

Charles is recognized as an innovative coach and a thought leader in the field of human performance. His experience, reputation, and self-effacing persona have led to appearances on "The Today Show" and "The CBS Early Show," along with numerous radio and podcast appearances. He has penned more than a thousand articles for major publications and online websites in the industry.

Charles is not only a thinker, but also a doer: Currently, he competes at the national and world level in weightlifting and powerlifting on the master’s circuit and holds three World Championship titles in the sport of raw powerlifting.
