Are you 10, 20, 50, 75, 100lbs or more overweight? Has every diet you've tried failed you?

If so, I can show you how to change your body, and change your life so that you can lose that weight for good.

This is me, in March of 2008.

I was over 410lbs, morbidly obese. Prediabetic. I was always hungry, never satisfied. Addicted to video games. Depressed. Buying clothes was embarrassing, even at the local “Big and Tall” store. I didn't fit in plane seats. I could barely walk without being in pain. I was balding. I was scared. I thought I had tried everything, and that I was a failure. I was a college dropout. I felt like I was going to die, and I was only 28. AND I was about to become a father.

And in learning that, I made a decision right then and there that the person I had become is not the father that my daughter deserved.

This is me, today

I've lost 210lbs and I've kept it off. I am a father of two. I graduated college in 2014 as a 4.0 student, while working full time. I am happy. I feel alive. I have never been stronger, never been faster, and never been leaner. I know that if I want to accomplish something, I simply must reach out and take it. I am afraid of nothing. And I’m only 34.


The first step is the hardest. That first step is wanting to change. I know, because I've been there, and that moment still resonates with me today. I’m different than other coaches because I know. I've felt the the utter terror of failure, and fear of change. I've felt every fiber of my being resist what I desired in my heart. You may be feeling that now. It is a feeling of despair, it is feeling like you are alone. Maybe you've taken a step, but it was in the wrong direction, something not sustainable, like trying a fad diet, or a cleanse or detox. They never worked, and you just gained everything back, and maybe more. You've wanted to take that first step in the right direction so many times. I've been in that dark place, feeling like you are suffocating, wanting to change, and not knowing what to do. Wanting to give up. I didn't give up. You shouldn't give up. What’s different this time? I am here for you. There is a team of other people going through what you are going through right now. They are here for you and are ready to share your journey. You are not alone in this.

When you join the Extreme Fat Loss team, you will be surrounded by others on the same journey. A community, there to pick us up when we fall, is what made my own weight loss possible. A community will make your weight loss possible as well! When we are weak, we borrow strength from each other to get us through. When we achieve victories, we share them to motivate and inspire others. You don't have to do this alone.

I’d like for you to meet some of the Extreme Fat Loss community members, and see what they have to say!

"Chuck was amazing! He was always very prompt with his responses, very encouraging, and would go out of his way to help me. This helped me do the best I ever have with this endeavor. I am looking forward to continuing my training with him! When I started with Chuck, I was the biggest I ever was. Since the start, I lost 50 lbs, and feel considerably better and more confident! " - joe_swordsman

"The nutrition guidelines were spot-on - when I hit the calorie and protein recommendations, I lost weight. Chuck was very responsive to anything posted, and he did an awesome job with giving complete answers in the weekly hangouts." - averymd

"When I message Chuck about problems/concerns, his response is almost immediate. I've never been into fitness before, but that didn't matter. Every question or concern was handled with care. Chuck never made me feel stupid or left a question unanswered. When I needed more clarification, he didn't seem agitated or annoyed. Chuck genuinely wanted to make sure we knew how to get the results we wanted. If Chuck is teaching a class in the future, and it applies to me, I’m signing up!"- danisaunders

"With little time to spare for exercise, I had to find a way to lose weight as well as learn a way to keep it off. Extreme Fat Loss with Chuck was that way. With his guidance, and the support of a great group, I was able to drop 7.5lbs in 8 weeks, through simple changes to how I eat. Chuck has me on a solid path to getting there. I would gladly send anyone I know his way, as he is honest and easy to work with, as well as able to get results!"- Arasoi

"Chuck was understanding, thoughtful, patient and full of great ideas. I felt comfortable sharing my struggles with weight loss in the group. Chuck always had great insights, as well as gentle guidance to help me stay on track when I felt like I was falling off. I have struggled with weight loss for a long time. But now I've lost 7 pounds, and I'm getting into the habit of tracking my food regularly and making better food choices."- TeacherJess

"Before I started I was gradually getting bigger and bigger. I managed to lose 14lbs in 7 weeks and was delighted with the visible weight loss in my face and waistline. Chuck has been a great support over the course of the program, always on hand to offer advice and support. He gave me a great exercise and nutrition routine to follow, which he tailored to make it easy for me. I can really recommend this program to anyone!"- suicunex

"I joined the Extreme Fat Loss class because it was clear that the coach, who has lost 200-odd pounds and kept it off, knew something I needed to know. I've lost weight many times, and a lot of weight a couple times, but it keeps coming back. I wanted to learn how to solve my weight problem permanently. So far the class has worked well for me, and I've recommended it to my nephew as well."- dana95125

"Chuck got me out of fact-finding mode and gave me a specific, yet flexible, nutrition plan for long-term weight loss. During his class, I learned to set macro targets and track to them. I also learned the lifestyle skills to make long-term weight loss a realistic process. And my waist is 3 inches smaller!"- hzrwfw

"I actually look forward to going to the gym every other day - NEVER thought I’d say that. Coupled with eating better and tracking calories, I've already lost 6lbs this month. I know I've got a long way to go, but thanks for helping get my mind focused on the right things. I used to think I had to kill myself at the gym, but that’s not the case at all. And with the new recipes I’m starting to incorporate, I’m feeling a lot more positive about losing weight with these new life habits."- BattleShark

"You sometimes deal with 'coaches' who are so caught up in the fitness craze that they forget they are dealing with people who are just starting out or are having a hard time. Charles understands what it's like to struggle with weight and eating habits. He teaches us to not beat ourselves up when we slip up, to not deprive ourselves from the food we love, and above all, to take each day, one by one."- leviosaaa


When I finally found a scale that would go over 400lbs, I put it down on my bathroom floor, and I was terrified. Paralyzed with fear. My body refused to move forward, refused to step onto that scale. But my heart’s desire suddenly overwhelmed me, and I made that first step on to the scale. It was the hardest step I have ever taken. It was harder than anything else that I’ve ever had to do, to this very day. You are standing on the precipice, deciding whether or not to take that step. I’m going to ask you to take a leap of faith. If I could do this, if I could lose 200lbs, and keep it off for 7 years, so can you. I believe in you. And I’m here to help.

I want to help you lose weight, and keep it off, FOR GOOD. I know that I can help you because I've been where you are. I've felt what you feel. I've struggled; I've failed at times. But I've made it, I've helped others make it, and I want you to make it as well. It’s time to take that first step, and I’m ready to take it right beside you.


The Extreme Fat Loss Program is centered on FIVE key components:

  1. Seven key habits needed for permanent fat loss, and assignments with the goal of helping you relate these habits to your own specific situation.
  2. Custom nutrition goals tailored to your unique goals. For most people, this will likely be a higher protein diet, with built in flexibility so that you do NOT have to eliminate any foods, unless they are a binge trigger for you.
  3. Tracking those custom nutrition goals on MyFitnessPal. This is done in order to reinforce the concept of portion sizes, and how they relate to being able to meet those goals, and lose weight without feeling hungry.
  4. Moving away from an all-or-nothing mentality toward food. Pizza is food. Beer is food. You can have both in some amounts, still meet your goals, and eliminate guilt over food from your life forever.
  5. Two types of exercise: 1.) Exercise that you love, and can do without it feeling like a chore, and 2.) Exercise gives the most return in health, and assistance in fat loss, for the least amount of time. Once you've gotten used to the other habits, if you are ready to exercise, our goal will be to find the proper mix of the above two types of exercises that fit into your life WITHOUT feeling like you need to be in the gym all day, every day. Once I started exercising regularly seven years ago, I've rarely exercised more than three to four hours PER WEEK!

After the 12 weeks end, there is a continuation course available for graduates, to continue to guide you on the rest of your journey!



Do you provide a custom meal plan?
No, but that's something we can build together as a team. You'll be given calorie and protein targets as well as guidance in meeting those goals. Meal plans do not allow the needed flexibility in order for these habits to become permanent.
How much weight can I lose?
Most people lose 5+ lbs in their first two weeks! The goal is not fast fat loss however, but losing that fat permanently.
Will this program work for Vegans or Vegetarians?
Yes! The primary nutritional guidelines are calories and protein. There are quite a few vegans and vegetarians in the class that are able to hit their protein goals with some smart choices for protein sources!
What about exercise?
I'm happy to give you some basic guidance, but exercise isn't required to lose weight!
