Charleszetta Smith Ford

Founder

Charleszetta is a high-energy, licensed, physical education teacher, certified personal trainer, team lead and author with over nineteen years of experience in the health and wellness field. After working in public schools for six years, she realized that the only way she could create an environment where children and adults could have fun while exercising in a structured manner was to design her own large-scalefitness program. She took a leap of faith and launched Better Bodies 4 Us, L.L.C. in 2007.

Each week, she visits a different elementary school to implement her Youth Fitness and Physical Education program. Seeing her students’ excitement to exercise with her brings such joy to her heart and confirms, daily, that she is doing exactly what God has called her to do—change lives one day at a time, physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Her love for encouraging children to move motivated her to write her first book, B3 Goes to the Playground in 2018. Her love of helping others utilize their gift of teaching group fitness classes, motivated her to expand her company of one to a team of many. It is her hope that many lives, near and far, will be motivated to exercise and enrich their lives together.
