Charissa James – Stronger, Capable, and Loving It!

Charissa James is our Spotlight Member this week!!!  Charissa has been working out at OSi for a little over a year, she usually comes to the 9:30am classes with her husband Stephen.  During her time at OSI she has grown in confidence, strength, physical ability, and learned to enjoy exercising!  We love having her in class and also love drinking her coffee (and other things;) at The Mill which she and her husband are part owners of.  Bonus it’s right down the street from us!  Congratulations Charissa, we’ve loved supporting you on your journey!  Rock on!

When you hear “OSi” what is the first thing that comes to mind?

Family and support

What did you initially think about our form of movement and what reset felt the strangest?

I thought it was interesting but it made sense. Definitely the rocking felt strangest.

Have you noticed anything in everyday life that is easier to do or you are able to do better?

Just working and carrying all the glasses, especially from the Mezzanine area.


What is your favorite thing to do at OSi and Why? Working out together and anything that I do that I can tell I’m getting and have gotten stronger.

What has been one of your biggest obstacles when it comes to sticking to your game plan in the past?

Just making time. Being a small business owner it makes it hard to find the time sometimes so just making a conscious effort to keep at it.

How has OSi helped/is helping you presently to overcome that obstacle?

By keeping me accountable and messaging or asking where I’ve been.

What is your proudest achievement/next big goal at OSI?

Doing strict pull ups probably. But really anything that I realize how much stronger I’m getting. My next big goal would be to do two consecutive pull ups.

When you’re not at OSI what do you do for fun (hobbies, etc)?

Spend time with family and friends, and watch my boys play baseball.

What is something you would say to your first week of OSi self to encourage/help them?

Keep it up. You’re stronger and more capable then you think. You can do more then you ever thought.
