This Dallas Musicians Workout Plan
Being in the gym is part of my lifestyle. It’s my home away from home. I’m fortunate enough to be a trainer at the Frisco Family YMCA (one of the best gyms in North Dallas in my opinion). The gym is my playground where I build and explore my abilities and help others improve upon themselves through training. I help them get fit, be active, reach their goals, and have fun doing so. I find my flow within the gym experience. It’s challenging and engaging, but because I’m passionate about it, I embrace the challenge and grow as a person.
Lately, I’ve been doing full-body workouts for myself to experiment with how my body reacts and responds to it. I’ve been doing typical upper and lower body splits for years now, and I thought it’d be a nice change of pace to do something different. Of course, it’s not the same routine every day, I mix up the exercises throughout the week to ensure I hit all the targeted muscle groups. Earlier in the year, I was doing full-body workouts 5 days a week. As of now, the number of days I spend doing legitimate full-body workouts is about 4, but really, my main goal is to just get in the gym daily and experiment with a lot of techniques and variations. Plus, I incorporate plenty of full body workouts with my clients because it’s efficient for those that don’t come to the gym more than 3 days a week. For the most part, I tailor my workouts and training sessions to my client’s needs, and I program routines to help them see the results they desire. Having clients see immediate results is so important, especially for gym newcomers, because it helps them stay motivated to continue on their fitness journey.
On a personal level, I’m working on building myself up and maximizing my potential to reach my optimal level of fitness. I love working at the Y, because the community and the members at the YMCA are awesome and I’ve grown a lot as a person working here. From high fives to quality convos and fitness tips, the Y is a great environment for growth. In addition to being a trainer, I go to UNT and I’m currently working on getting my masters in counseling. I want to pair mental health with physical health for whole-body wellness health. On top of my job at the YMCA, I also work at Neighborhood Market. Specifically, I help with promoting Any Body Supplements, which I personally take for myself. My favorite and go-to supplements from Any Body are their whey protein isolate (dymatize), Summit pre-work, and creatine (Kre-Alkalyn) occasionally. I also like to cook my own food in order to stay on top of my diet and ensure I’m getting proper nutrition. My favorite dish to cook is this special chicken stir fry rice combo which is super tasty and gives me plenty of protein. I also make music that’s oriented around whole-body health. My project is called “Processing” and you can find it on Spotify, Apple Music, and Soundcloud – just look up “Charlie CB Processing”. I have tracks named Meditate, Mindfulness, Training Day, Downward Dog, and Range. My goal was to make songs people could jam to, but also had some thoughtfulness behind them. Perfect for getting you hyped during your training sessions. If you ever want to work out or just chat, come visit me at the YMCA.
