Hello! I’m Charleszetta Smith Ford. Thanks for visiting my Directory Page.
I am a high-energy licensed physical education teacher, certified personal trainer, and author with over eighteen years of experience in the health and fitness field. After working in public schools for six years, I realized that the only way I could create an environment where students could have fun while exercising in a structured manner was to design my own large-scale youth-fitness program. I took a leap of faith and launched Better Bodies 4 Us, full time, in 2011.
Each week, I visit a different elementary school to implement my Youth Fitness program. Seeing my students’ excitement to exercise with me brings such joy to my heart and confirms, daily, that I am doing exactly what God has called me to do—changing lives one day at a time, physically, mentally, and spiritually.
My love for encouraging children to move motivated me to write my first book, B3 Goes to the Playground, last year. It is my hope that many children and families, near and far, will be motivated to exercise and enrich their lives together.

Better Bodies 4 Children’s All-Run Soccer Baseball program is a fitness class which focuses on your students practicing, developing and applying soccer skills such as ball-handling, dribbling and passing in an organized game setting. The challenges will include each team beating their previous score at bat and making accurate passes to their teammates in the outfield. Our warm-up will give your students the chance to practice their ball-handling and dribbling skills so that they are better prepared for the organized game. This program begins and ends with a discussion of the muscles being stretched, nutrition and physical activity. At the end of this class, your students are encouraged to make better nutritional choices and to be more active at home.
Our Youth Fitness program is designed to help fight the childhood obesity epidemic that threatens to take the lives of so many children today. Each student will improve their locomotor and non-locomotor skills during this class. Also, we desire to encourage our youth to have a better outlook on what they can do in order to live a healthy life.
Your students will have the opportunity to have fun while exercising in a non-competitive environment. Because of the fun that your students will experience while exercising, it is our hope that they will share all that they learn and do with their family and friends. The overall goal of Better Bodies 4 Us is to encourage our community to start moving together.
