Coach Charlie grew up in Mount Vernon, New York and still calls it home. He has a passion for rugby, having been a huge fan since he was a child. Out of this passion, he built himself as a rugby coach and was selected to play for the United States rugby team before he found CrossFit. One day, while he was going for a jog in his neighborhood he ran into Coach Mike, who encouraged him to be a part of the CrossFit community. Since then, he has taken his nutrition and his training very seriously. He has been an important part of CrossFit Gotham since 2013 and is loving every second of it.
