Charles was born and raised in Morristown, TN. He played football throughout high school, earning him a football scholarship. After a life-threatening car accident during his first year, followed by multiple surgeries, he had to sideline his football career – which drew him to health and wellness.

He has also been published in over 8 different fitness magazines. In 2018 Charles was accepted to compete in the Arnold Classic as he was in preparation and preparing to complete 5 weeks out from the show he was faced with another challenge. He passes out on a plane ride coming back from the LA expo with his team. When he was taken into the ER they told him that he had an infection that had got into his blood stream and they will have to do emergency surgery within 2 hours. After spending 7 days in the hospital recuperating after surgery Charles decided to still work towards competing in the Arnold. 5 weeks of training non stop Charles was able to not only compete, but to place in the finals, top 10 out of the 40 plus competitors. Charles is on his journey now to become a great entrepreneur. So he will be able to give back to his community, and continues to share his story of overcoming tragedies, inspire and help the next generation.

Ashley Gomez
Ashley Gomez
Bikini Competitor

I started my fitness journey in the summer of 2016. After living overseas for 3 years and indulging in all of the delicious European food, I gained the heaviest I’ve ever been, 155lbs, which for my BMI, was considered overweight. I did not like the person I saw in the mirror. My clothes started to fit differently and I became very insecure about myself. I promised myself that once I moved back to the States, I would jump start my fitness journey and seriously devote myself to this journey. I was inspired by so many women on social media and the local fitness community. I wanted to have the drive all of these women had. I knew it would be tough and I knew it would be my biggest challenge yet. I was tired of running out of energy and feeling drained after every work day. I wanted to feel healthy again, mentally and physically. Weight lifting changed my life! I am happy with where my fitness journey has taken me. I achieved a major goal in my life and saw results I thought I could never achieve! I decided to compete to prove to myself and to others that results come with hard work and dedication. You can do anything you set your mind to! Trust the process and never give up. When you’re feeling down, that’s when you push harder! Fitness not only became a lifestyle but one of my greatest passions, and I look forward to growing further into my fitness journey and inspiring others to reach their fitness goals, as I did!

Nutrition Faktory is a store I can get behind. They have great advice, great products, and great prices.

Being active has always been prevalent in my life. I started Ballet at the age of 3 and continued on as a dancer for 17 years. After college and upon moving from Charlotte to Nashville, I found it to be quite a struggle to find balance in my life. I finally found a gym close by and grew a new found love for weight lifting. Going to the gym sets my tone for the day while giving me more energy and feeling happier with life in general. I want others to see that it's possible to live a balanced and healthy lifestyle between work, family, friends and everything else life throws your way!

Todd Patterson
Todd Patterson
Competitive Bodybuilder

Worked out in high school, and a little bit in college. Never stepped foot in a gym or even remotely tried to eat clean, from the time I was 22, till I was 45. Went through a bad divorce. Someone told me the best relief for stress, depression and anxiety, was strenuous strength training. The best advice I ever received! Been training ever since! And yes, it is the best relief!

In 2016, it was suggested, I should try competing. 6 shows later, with 5, 1st place wins, I don’t see the end, no where in sight!

Beretty Bravo
Beretty Bravo
Personal Trainer & Coach

I have always admired people who put in the work to have the best abs, the best booty, the best body. After wishing for years to have the perfect body, I decided to go for it. My nutrition and my workouts were off. Depression and anxiety were my excuses. I hired an online coach, and she taught me about diet, something that I always struggled with. I was determined to make the changes, after eight weeks, I decided to find a local coach, someone who could take me to the NPC stage, and now I am on my way to nationals and get that IFBB pro card. My mindset changed. Commitment, discipline, and goals took over , and I was for the first time in years in control of my life, my happiness, and my future. Most importantly I found a passion, to inspire, motivate and push people to the next level. I noticed in me something that I have always wanted to do, to help people make the change, not just physically but emotionally. I want to leave a legacy that makes me proud. I don't want to be an average person surrounded by ordinary people... I want to be amazing! I am a NASM- Certified Personal Trainer I am an IIN Health Coach (Institute of Integrated Nutrition)

Hi, I'm Natalie! :) I am 20 years old and currently training to compete in my first NPC Bikini Competition. Throughout high school, I was always involved in sports but was very sporadic with my training in the gym. Once I got to college I began going to the gym every day, finally started seeing the results I had been wanting, and I haven't looked back since! Now, a little under 2 years into being serious about my health and fitness I thought it was time to try something new to really challenge myself so here I am prepping to compete!

He also worked for two music festivals, and had had several adventures over the years. During this period in his life, his did not concentrate on his fitness. A former college football player, he let his weight baloon up to 284 lbs. "I knew I had to change, I knew I had to find the athlete that I knew I had inside of me" says Buchanan. "So I joined Gold's in Hendersonville. One I started going back, I just never stopped going. It became a priority to me it became my lifestyle." Over time, he chisled away at himself, and has made great strides with his fitness, but never allows himself to become satisfied. "In fitness, and in life, there is no finish line", he says. He now personal trains out of a private studio in Hermitage called Next Level Strength and Conditioning. "I love showing people the potential that they have inside of them as well", he says. Buchanan now works with notable musicians in Nashville, including Nic Roulette (The Hillbilly Casino), Philip Shouse (Thee Rock & Roll Residency, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley), and Jamie White (The Pink Spiders), amongst others. "I enjoy working with people in showbiz because they are already driven to succeed. It often translates well in the gym." A character away from the gym, Buchanan is also a business owner, with his unique tour guide service "King Of The Road". As his comic alter ego $2 Elvis - The Cheapest Elvis Imposter in America - he takes tourists for rides in his 1957 Cadillac Sedan Deville showing them the sights of The Music City. He also does weddings, airport shuttles, conventions, corporate events, even roasts. He has been hired by Randy Travis (twice), Sprint Cellular Services, Lagunitas Brewing Company, Tivity Health, ASE Technology. $2 Elvis even has a song written about him by garage blues duo Left Lane Cruiser from Ft. Wayne, IN. "A huge compliment to me and something I will never forget" states Buchanan, adding "I love that band". Buchanan is also a humanitarian, having started a toy drive in his late mother'a honor. "Toys for Kathy's Little Girls and Boys" which is now in it's 10th year. "I wanted to do something to both honor my mother and keep her memory alive" he says. "I am very proud of it, as it has grown into one of the largest toy drives in Middle Tennessee. "It takes a lot of help from a lot of people and I am very appreciative of them all." All toys collected are donated between Vanderbilt Children's Hospital and Project NENA. "Fitness is the cornerstone of my life. As long as I stay active, I feel it is good for my body but better for my mind. I try to be sure I practice what I preach and I really do enjoy helping others realize their potential" states Buchanan.

I am a Sheriff’s Deputy in Sumner County. I was a student athlete at Cumberland University. I graduated in 2014 with a degree in Criminal Justice and was a Academic All Mid-South Conference athlete for the football program. My passion for fitness has opened more doors than I could have ever imagined and I want to help others pursue the same passion. Fitness has translated over to my career in Law Enforcement and has provided me with the confidence to do my job at a high level.

I have competed in several NPC Shows and have always done really well. Now I am at a point that I am trying to surround myself with the right people and organizations so my name and presence will continue to grow with the industry. WHY is accomplishing this goal important to you? I have always had a standard for myself that has pushed me to accomplish great things. Instead of partying, and living day by day, I have always taken a more mature approach to things. I was a store manager of a multi million dollar business, bought a home, moved out of state, and traveled all around the country before I was 23.

Now I am 27 and have not slowed down a bit. My goal with everything above has always been to get the most out of life. I never have been ok with settling for just getting by. I look at everyday as a stepping stone to becoming better and be more successful as time goes on. I am a very approachable person that will set an awesome tone for your company. Between my image, networking skills, and experience with marketing, I feel that I will be able to bring a lot of great things to the table with our partnership!

Over the last few years, my main goal has been to become a successful business man that is set in a career path that will provide an awesome lifestyle. I have been working with Zaxby's for 13 years.

For the first 2-3 years it was just a job that I enjoyed while going to school. Once I graduated everything changed, and I started to really view the opportunity as a successful career path. I travel all around as an owner/operator, am a part of the Zaxby's Committee Team for 900 stores, and get to network and meet new people and build new relationships every day. I plan to continue to grow with the company, while also making a name for myself in the fitness industry. With that said, my current goal is to continue to build off of the foundation with work, while becoming an IFBB Mens Physique Pro in the near future.

My name is Sean Edward Donaldson. I have been married to my beautiful wife Nicole for 23 years and we have 4 incredible children. Fitness has always been a part of our lives and our children's lives. It is not something that we have pushed on them as they see it in our lives daily and they are aware of the benefits that come with it. Not only the physical but also the mental aspect of fitness. I am originally from Memphis, TN but moved to Nashville in 1993 to pursue my degree from Tennessee State University in Criminal Justice. After receiving a wrist injury my career landed me into the Banking Industry for over a decade. That in itself can be a very stressful job and staying in shape helps tremendously with the mental aspect of the job. Working out stimulates the mind and helps me to be a better me not only in the gym but also in business.

Brian Aten
Brian Aten
Fitness Enthusiast

My name is Brian Aten, and I am 38 years old. I have been married since 2006 to my wife Brooke. Originally I am from Fort Myers, Florida, and moved to Tennessee 6 years ago. In January 2018, I weighed 352lbs, wore 46 pants and 4xl shirts. I had high blood pressure, and could barely run 30 seconds without running out of breath. On 1/17/18, I decided that enough was enough, and I began the Keto diet. I also set a goal of losing 33% of my total body weight, and coined my adventure “Mission33”. In addition to the keto diet, I began running. First a few minutes, eventually a 5k, then a 10K, and now I am working my way toward a half marathon. Through 1 year, I lost 70lbs; but decided I needed to increase my efforts, so I joined a gym. One of the first things I learned was that I needed to provide my body the necessary tools to help me attain my goals, at which time I found the Nutrition Faktory. In building that relationship, I’ve learned a ton about supplements and fueling my body. As of 6/10/19, I’ve lost 108lbs, down to 244. Mission 33 is so close to completion I can taste it! 2% more to go! Aside from running and working out at the gym, I am a Michigan football fanatic, and I enjoy playing with my 3 dogs as well as have a hobby doing woodworking.

I used to be someone who didn’t care how he looked, didn’t care what he ate or drank without thinking of the long term impact. I finally made a choice to make a change to start eating better and working out and paying more attention to my health. I’m not where I want to be but I’m still working on it, and trying to be the best version of myself mentally and physically. When I started I was 285 pounds, and currently sit at 235 pounds. My body composition is made up of more muscle, and i focus my training on traditional bodybuilding programs.

Getting into the gym, going on a hike, or stepping onto my yoga mat allows me to take time for myself. I live a hectic life, so taking 30 minutes to an hour for myself is necessary. It allows me to be apart of a community that understands the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle. I am able to detox, destress, and build a deeper understanding of my body and its needs.

In 2016 I graduated high school and went straight to have open heart surgery to replace a leaking pulmonary valve. I left the hospital weighing 145lbs soaking wet, not in the best shape... I wanted to change my life for the better, so I could live better. I started taking my health more seriously and gained 30 lbs of lean mass in the span of 2 years. Fitness has become a huge part of my life and I love encouraging others to never give up and reach their goals, no matter what.

I began working out about nine years ago. I stopped working out & began gaining weight. That is when I decided to start working out again & eating for long term results. I joined Gold's Gym & got a personal trainer Cory Adams. He has helped me lose about 50lbs,& has got me on track with eating right,& training to meet goals. I am enjoying this lifestyle, the result I receive from putting in the hard work,& eating to meet long term goals,not short term satisfaction.
