Charlie Chase
Charlie ChaseOwner/Lead Trainer
My athletic background is rooted in strength training and yoga. Over the past thirty-plus years it has been awesome to train a variety of people, from musicians to professional and nationally ranked athletes. Being an iPEC Certified Health and Wellness Coach, an Energy Leadership Coach, and a Life Coach has enabled me to help each individual with their personal growth. These skills have helped me develop a variety of yoga classes, co-found the Steamboat Movement Festival, direct and organize power lifting meets, develop and teach strength and fitness classes as well as yoga at Colorado Mountain College, and create a variety of sports specific strength training and yoga programs.

Spiritual growth and physical fitness best describe my continuing journey. Creating a place where people of all levels, beginner to expert, can come to help and support each other while meeting or going beyond their dreams is my passion! This atmosphere helps me connect with each person, guiding them to reach their goals and find a deep inner sense of joy and peace.
Genetic Synergy is a unique approach to your training by designing and integrating all aspects of your workout (Strength, Conditioning, Core, Cardio, Plyo, Yoga and Nutrition) into a balanced program for you. Whether you are training for a professional season or working out for yourself, Genetic Synergy works with the strengths and weaknesses of your individual DNA structure to create your optimal performance.

My passion is sharing the joy fitness can bring to all aspects of our lives. I believe in the value of sharing great experiences with others, and I believe through training we can enhance those experiences.

I have ten years of competitive swimming experience, as well as five years of competitive mountain bike experience. I’ve spent the last sixteen years in Steamboat honing my snowboarding, mountain biking, and river skills. I’m an ICP Certified mountain Bike coach, and ride guide.

With my skills and training I want to bring more awareness to the outdoor community of how a proper training program can vastly improve your overall ability. I see an opportunity for talented, and beginner athletes alike to improve their knowledge and skills through great experiences, and fun effective training!
