Charli maintains that goal setting is crucial if you want to transform your body. "I've been so reluctant to post anything about my journey with the fears of being judged, rude comments, or still not accomplishing my entire goals in time. But my friends convinced me I should start being more vulnerable & myself on the internet ( advice I get told allll the time lol) Here we go!" she wrote in a 2021 Instagram post, explaining how at the start of 2020 she "lost everything… my career, my independence, and myself. I fell into a deep depression eating & drinking every single day. I was at rock bottom. Then I got surgery which helped my foot but hurt me mentally & physically. I gained over 45+ pounds and was unsure if I would ever feel like 'Charli' again," she continued. However, she made some major changes, set goals and got into the best shape of her life, even winning a medal at a bodybuilding competition.

The Mayo Clinic maintains that Pilates offers a lot of benefits, as it "strengthens the body's inner core while increasing its flexibility resulting in improved overall health. It can also promote longer, leaner muscles, injury prevention, relief from stress and back pain, enhanced athletic performance, and heightened mind-body awareness.



You can always find Charli with a bottle of water in hand. According to the Mayo Clinic, hydration is important for a variety of reasons.
