Charlene Resnick 

  • Co-Owner and Business Partner at Get Movin’ Fitness and Nutrition Solutions 

  • Certified group fitness instructor and leads classes in Zumba®, Zumba® Gold,  Balletone®, Country Beat, AMPD Build, Yoga and Personal Training.  

  • Certified nutrition mentor with the 2B Mindset and the Ultimate Portion Fix Nutrition Program

Charlene's path into fitness started out purely as a means to lose weight! After weighing 300 lbs and having trouble with everyday tasks, she knew she needed to make changes.  She was too tired to play with her daughter and had several medical issues that included high blood pressure, she was pre-diabetic and had PCOS. Charlene started making small dietary changes moving towards a clean eating plan and added 15 minutes of walking daily. Her walks increased and she progressed to participating in group fitness classes.

Charlene quickly found her way up to the front of the class and fell in love with energy and the fun she was having!  As she continued with her new healthy lifestyle she lost a total of 150 pounds and her health is no longer at risk!!

Charlene dedicates her successes to the community of support she has received from attending group fitness classes and from participating in Get Movin’s online accountability group! 

As someone who has always wanted to help others Charlene knew that there were many women just like her and she wanted to help them improve their health and to give them hope!   

Charlene is looking forward to getting to know you and to sharing her love of health and fitness to motivate and inspire you!!
