Providing you with over 20 years of experience!
The owners and Personal Trainers of Reach, Don Larkin (photographed on right) and Charlene Hinish (photographed on left), are both fitness, wellness, and athletic coaching veterans. With over 20 years of combined experience, Don and Charlene believe in making your training a fun experience, rather than a monotonous chore.
About Don Larkin:
Despite a lifelong history of strength training and active involvement in various sports including alpine skiing and volleyball, Don did not race his first triathlon until the age of 37. He was instantly hooked and completed five races in that first year. During the years that followed, Don volunteered as a mentor for the LLS Team in Training’s Central PA Triathlon Team and completed dozens of additional triathlons. Don holds a USA Triathlon Level 1 Coaching certification, is a National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA) Certified Personal Trainer, and is TRX Suspension Training Qualified. He is also a senior at California University of PA, pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science with a concentration in Wellness and Fitness.
About Charlene Hinish:
With a lifelong desire to help people be well, Charlene Hinish found the perfect fit for her second career in the health and wellness industry and chose to pursue her certifications in personal training and health and wellness coaching after her own personal journey towards better fitness and wellbeing. Wanting others to feel good on the inside as well as the outside, Charlene ventured into the fitness industry in 2003 as a Les Mills Body Combat instructor and received her ACE Personal Training Certification in 2005. Later in 2005, for her 40th birthday, she participated in her first of many sprint triathlons. Charlene holds certifications through the American Council on Exercise (ACE), the Functional Aging Institute (FAI), WellCoaches and TRX. She is also a Narrative Coach Enhanced Practitioner and has extensive continuing education in nutrition. Charlene acquired her Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Juniata College.

"I love Reach Personal Training because they create a tailored workout specific to what I need to improve my quality of life. When I started, I was dealing with lower back and hip pain on a daily basis and was avoiding activities that I knew would aggravate my issues. Six months later, I am feeling about 90% better, I am able to golf and garden with occasional stiffness, but no pain. I have not felt this good in years! Thanks, Reach!"
