Charlie Brown is a 9 year veteran of the fire service currently serving as a firefighter paramedic for the Glendale Fire Department in Glendale, CA. Charlie holds a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science and Sports Medicine with an emphasis in human performance and is a certified Level 1 CrossFit trainer. If you can’t find Charlie in the fire station or coaching a class at Autumo CrossFit, it’s probably because he is gone camping with his wife Lisa and their 3 children CJ, Reese, and Evelyn.
“My whole life has been based around sports and athletics so firefighting was a natural fit. Being a firefighter to me means being an occupational athlete, it encompasses so many aspects of fitness including agility, balance, cardiovascular endurance, coordination, flexibility, muscular endurance, strength, power, reflexes, and speed. I am passionate about fitness and the importance it plays in having a successful career in the fire service and I want to share that passion with others.”
