Charles Williams, Co-Owner, B.S., CF-L1

I am Charles Williams, co-owner with my Wife Heather Williams and trainer of Muddy Water CrossFit. I have been a member of the Army National Guard for 10 years and currently hold the rank of E-7/SFC. I am CrossFit Level 1 certified and have a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science. I was deployed to Iraq in 2009-10 where I was first introduced to CrossFit. In Iraq you never know what is going to happen from day to day, CrossFit was perfect in that it gets you in shape for the unknown and unknowable. I am also a Registered Radiologic Technologist which has helped me greatly with understanding the anatomy and physiology of the human body.

Physical fitness has been a big part of my life and when I became a non commissioned officer part of my duties included the physical fitness of my troops. While performing this duty I found a surprising passion with improving the health of others. I was chosen by the Army to attend a Unit Fitness Coordinator Course to become an Army Master Physical Fitness Instructor. This course was created because the Army is converting all their physical fitness training programs to mirror CrossFit. Since February 2011 I have been personally training Soldiers to do CrossFit with most of the training done in my free time. I am very passionate about improving the health of my fellow Soldiers and I want to carry this passion to my community.
