Carly Chertos - Personal Trainer & Boot Camp Coach


What defines my training philosophy is my belief of mental toughness and balance from within. Life is filled with ups and downs, transformations, and moments of redefining yourself. You may not always be able to control what is being thrown at you, but you can always take control of how you respond to life’s hurdles. Fitness is my outlet to show individuals how powerful they really are.

 “It’s not whether you fall down, it’s whether you get back up.”

I take pride in designing personal training sessions that are not only mentally challenging but also personalized to the client and their specific fitness goals. Together we challenge the mind, strengthen the body, and find balance in nutrition.

I  focus on dynamic, functional, body moments that cover all planes of motion; with an emphasis in power, control, balance, and stability. I have found this exercise philosophy has been the most well-rounded approach for results. In addition, I offer support in nutritional counseling and educating the client’s mind into understanding how to fuel their body.


I am an athlete and coach at heart. It is my passion and purpose in life to enhance the lives of others through physical exercise.  As a college soccer player at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee I learned that their is power in perseverance, dedication, determination, and hard work. Every day is an opportunity to re-create yourself and the habits that define you. The most powerful thing you can do is have the courage to re-create yourself.
