Our Fitness Team

Jo Ann Goodie-Charles

Owner & Founder

My name is Jo Ann Goodie-Charles. I am a Registered Nurse with 44 years of experience in women’s health care and 23 years of experience in fitness. At the age of 25, I was diagnosed with hypertension. Young and in good physical shape the diagnosis was a complete surprise but unfortunately hypertension was a frequent recurring medical condition in my family. Based on my nursing knowledge, I immediately changed my diet and used my love for exercise to improve my blood pressure. My physician, who had placed me on a low dose blood pressure medication within a year of my initial diagnosis, changed my treatment plan to diet, exercise, and periodic blood pressure monitoring. Motivated by my improved health and appearance, I, as a nurse, quickly noticed that the healthy nutritional and exercise plan that worked for me was often the first physician recommendation to patients in treating or minimizing chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension. Fitness became more than just a personal lifestyle choice but a way to make a difference in the lives of others.

Now at 70+ years of age, that which started as a fun interest has over the years translated into one of my life’s passions and a second career path. I became a Certified Personal Trainer in 1999 and, as time moved forward, became certified as an Aerobics Instructor. After retirement as a nurse, I was blessed to open Fit Just4U in 2015, providing personal training and related services to the community with a particular interest in the Baby Boomer and senior population.

We opened the doors of Fit Just4U standing on the scripture, 3 John 1:2 “Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul. ESV. I believe it is God’s desire for each of us regardless of age to be in good health and be active participants in the process. Fit Just4U founded in grace and anointed with the mission to help the community’s aging population to age well, through a holistic fitness program designed to energize and revitalize the health and well-being of adults 50 years of age and older. “Fit Just4U – Fitness Designed with the 50+ and Older in Mind.”
