I HAVE A PASSION FOR GETTING YOU RESULTS!
I have always had a keen interest in my own health and fitness and that of others, and I am proud to have pursued this interest and built my career around it working as a personal trainer across the Wetherby, Harrogate and York area.
At a young age, I started to study the science behind fitness training in order to keep myself in shape, I found it fascinating and something I was really passionate about so I later went on to study a degree in Sport and Exercise Science at Sheffield Hallam University. This experience enabled me to gain a vast amount of up to date scientific knowledge that I am now able to use on a day to day basis to maximise results from personal training sessions for my clients.
I work across the Wetherby area
Today, I continue to work as a Personal Trainer across the area working with individuals, couples & groups of friends, and in September 2014 I launched Principal Fitness at Boston Spa School, a new fitness facility providing 15 exercise classes & 11 Group PT Studio Sessions every week.

WHAT CLIENT'S SAY
“I have been training with Charlie Hobson for the past 4 years. I was originally introduced to Charlie by a friend of mine after being diagnosed with border line type 2 diabetes.
I know that I would never have achieved the level of fitness and wellness I have at my age, (currently forty-nine) if not for the personal attention, motivation, given in my training sessions. Charlie is always very encouraging and has a vast knowledge of his profession. I have not looked back since I started training with Charlie and was out of the diabetes type 2 danger zone within 3 months.
I would recommend Charlie Hobson in a heartbeat. I aim to continue to train and maintain a good level of fitness with Charlie help for a long time to come.”
“Training with Charlie has changed my life! Would I ever have dared to do this before?? NO WAY!! Charlie gets the balance right, not too soft, not too shouty.
I am seeing better results than ever now I have upped my sessions to two per week and am sticking to his program at home. Charlie’s style of HIIT training was definitely a good move.
My fitness has reached a new level and I now look forward to training instead of dreading it”
“I have been seeing Charlie twice a week since the beginning of November. The results are noticeable and my re-measure (MOT) this week confirmed this. Going to the sessions and having the continued nutrition advice has generally made me much more pro active and has put more structure back into my routine. The secession are varied and tailored. I would definitely recommend Charlie.”
Georgiana Barton, Collingham
“I was very apprehensive in getting back into training again after having a c section in February and not really having done much exercise over the last few years! Charlie listened to what I wanted to achieve and really motivated me into getting back into shape. Every session is well thought out and actually great fun once you get going. He also has given great nutritional advice as well throughout. I can’t believe I have nearly lost all my baby weight and feel so much younger and fitter in just 3 months. Charlie is always punctual, very polite and full of energy to get the best out of you each session and I would strongly recommend Charlie to anyone for personal training sessions.”
Mark James, Wetherby
“I’ve always found Charlie very approachable and flexible in terms of working towards my own personal goals. He’ll create a programme that suits you and push you gently along the way to keep you focussed. I would highly recommend him, a good guy.”
Kath / North Yorkshire
“Just to say thank you for all your support & help to date with my training; I find your practical approach & friendly nature a real asset & it benefits me greatly in achieving my personal goals.”
Cath Winter / Boston Spa
“I have been going to Charlie’s Jump Start class since the Summer and have to say was not fit at all and slightly reluctant if I am totally honest. Charlie is so enthusiastic and has amazing knowledge of what he does and always puts a great plan together each week which is varied and gives us a great body workout.
Ian Philpott / Clifford
“I have been working with Charlie Hobson since February 2013, once a week, training outside. During that time I have lost 3.5KG (8lbs), not a lot you may think, however what this hides is that I have lost 10cm (3 inches) off my waist and my body fat I have reduced by a massive 19.6%, my resting heartbeat is down from 71 to 51.
