Charles Smith

Strength and Conditioning Coach

Charles joins Fortius Sport & Health with over six years of strength and conditioning experience, working with a variety of populations including professional, youth and recreational athletes, general population and those recovering from injuries or just looking to feel better. Prior to working in the performance sector, Charles worked as a physiotherapy technician; he worked closely with physiotherapists and occupational therapists in order to develop smart, creative, integrated training programs aimed at developing general fitness while accommodating limitations due to injury. Charles moved to Vancouver in 2015 after graduating from Arizona State University with a B.S. in Kinesiology. While in school, Charles participated in cross-country running (high school), and intramural football and softball (university). Since moving, he has embraced the rugged outdoors of BC and has fully immersed himself in the world-class mountains, trails and ocean that Vancouver has to offer. When not in the gym, Charles enjoys all things outdoors including trail running, snowshoeing and kayaking.
