I’m Charles Glass”

Before taking on the big champions, Chris used to refuse them all, because of Charles Glass and as well he admitted that he was afraid to take on such a big responsibility.

After refusing all these top stars such as Dexter Jackson, Shawn Rhoden and countless others, Charles Glass still confronted Chris and told him “No one can take my clients,
I’m Charles Glass”.

When Chris heard those word, he said that that was the push he needed to train whoever he likes.

The moment it was known Chris ‘Psycho’ Lewis was available, a number of high profile athletes left Charles Glass to train with Chris.

Chris took over Shawn Rhoden’s training for just over two years. From the time he had a broken jaw to winning the Mr. Olympia.
