BIO

For twenty years, Movement Specialist Charlene Sullivan has been quietly changing lives with her unconventional method of fitness coaching. Now she’s turned up the volume, branded her techniques, and is beginning to change the fitness industry itself!

Over the years, this Toronto born 5’3″ power house has racked up an impressive number of certifications. Her credentials include Medical Exercise Specialist, Yoga Specialist. BOSU Training, Personal Training, and TRX Training.

However, it’s her studies as a self-confessed “science geek”, that sparked Charlene’s awareness of missing elements in the standard definition of fitness.

The Struggle
Early in her career, Charlene was often surprised by how difficult it was for people to meet their fitness goals, despite their best efforts. For some people, the issues of weight, age, and pain, were barriers to getting fit and living an active life. Even people who appeared to be in great shape, would show up to her class with strains and injuries.

These issues caused Charlene to realize two important things. First, traditional approaches to exercise don’t work for everybody, and can restrict long-term vitality. Second, our standard definition of fitness is incomplete.

Watching so many different people struggle to get fit and stay healthy, Charlene kept wondering; “What are we missing, and what do we need to do differently?”

The Search
This is when Charlene’s mission to help others really took off. She began by submerging herself in all types of research on human biology and the science of movement. This included everything from ancient Eastern studies to Western clinical trials.

Over the next several years, Charlene’s perspective on fitness changed. She realized that embryology, evolution, and metabolic fluids are missing elements from our blueprint for fitness. With that in mind, she began to re-examine the widely accepted definitions of fitness, including strength, balance, and flexibility.

The Solution
Twenty years ago, Charlene founded Main Fitness studio. This is where she developed her own theories and movements, which she tested out with her clients. The result of this research and development is the Pendotion method of movement, and it’s revolutionary Muscle Reverb™ system.

Pendotion is a series of targeted movements that circulates your healing metabolic fluids, opens your joints to create new movement options, and challenges your body to increase strength, balance and flexibility. This method includes some very unusual, and deceptively simple movements, without the traditional focus on perfect form or statue-like stillness.

The results for Charlene’s clients have been astonishing, and even life changing. Pendotion has helped thousands of people prove that weight, age, injury, and fitness level are not barriers to easy movement and pain-free living. They never have been. We just didn’t have the right blueprint to fitness, until now!
