TIFFANY COOLIDGE
TIFFANY COOLIDGEOWNER, PERSONAL TRAINER, AND SMALL GROUP TRAINING

She was named 5280 Magazine’s 2013 Top of the Town Best Personal Trainers. She’s consistently ranked as one of Denver’s top 10 trainers by Denver’s A-List awards. She won her first boxing match by TKO.

To say Tiffany is a big deal is an understatement. She left her career in politics and her position as a board member for the Women’s Campaign School at Yale University to focus on fitness and her clients. And she hasn’t looked back. After training at a big box gym for a few years, Tiffany decided it was time to become her own force of fitness. Her vision was to create a no-frills gym that emphasized training and conditioning, not flexing in front of the mirror or prancing around in tight clothing. No matter your age or fitness ability, at Blunt Force, everyone is equal. It’s not uncommon to see clients, trainers, and fighters sweating side-by-side. But what Tiffany really loves is the camaraderie that happens organically outside the gym. It’s not uncommon to see Blunt Forcers running races together, cheering for the fight team at MMA events, and proudly sporting their Blunt Force gear all over town. Blunt Force is more than just another Denver gym. It’s a fitness lifestyle with an army of loyal followers. Tiffany is the mastermind behind it all. When Tiff isn’t making clients sweat, she’s boxing, running races and traveling the globe searching for the best food trucks.

CHARLIE CHARBONNEAU
CHARLIE CHARBONNEAUGYM MANAGER, PERSONAL TRAINER, AND SMALL GROUP TRAINING

In the fitness world, some might look at Charlie as an underdog. And that’s perfectly fine for this comeback, come-from-behind-kid.

Charlie had been struggling with his weight since childhood. At the start of his freshman year of college, Charlie weighed 375 pounds. After he graduated, he knew it was time for a change. He started running and working out; by his 25th birthday, Charlie had lost 190 pounds. He left his desk job and began working out at Blunt Force. Since then he’s lost over 7% body fat and put on 40 pounds of muscle. But transforming his physical physique was only part of Charlie’s goal. The other was pursuing a career in personal training. It’s no surprise that Charlie found a way to muscle through his training and come out on top. Charlie brings a real passion to Blunt Force every day, whether it’s through his own workouts or the classes he teaches. He recently became an NASM Certified Personal Trainer and is pumped to be a part of the Blunt Force family. If you have a personal obstacle, like losing weight or getting in shape for a race, Charlie is just the man to have by your side. When he’s not at the gym, which is rare, Charlie loves spending time outdoors. But even then he’s usually hiking, climbing 14ers, or conquering the latest obstacle course race to come through Colorado.
