Kirk Charles on Staying Healthy

Certified personal trainer Kirk Charles sat with Joanna Gagis on “A Life & Living Moment” to offer tips and tools to stay healthy.

“I believe we should all be eating predominantly plant food,” Charles says. The type of plant food best for you is determined by what part of the world you’re from.  “The best ratio for you,” Charles concludes, “would be 90-95% plant and maybe 5% meat products.”

Kirk Charles is a Master Trainer at the New York Sports Club. He is also the author of “Live in the Power Zone” and has written more than 50 nationally published articles. For more than ten years, he has given presentations on enhancing personal performance and business development.
