Oc­cu­pa­tion: Chi­ro­prac­tor, Thiensville

Age: 64

Be­gin­ning with dance classes at age four, Cate Charl­ton has en­joyed mul­ti­ple trends in fit­ness: aer­o­bic dance (“Cheesy moves, but I was hooked”), step and Jane Fonda videos. Ex­er­cis­ing helped her man­age two de­mand­ing ca­reers, first in ad­ver­tis­ing, then as a chi­ro­prac­tor. “There is noth­ing like be­ing in a class with great mu­sic, fun moves and all these peo­ple around you do­ing the same thing,” she says. Since 1983, Charl­ton has led classes at Elite Sports Clubs – River Glen, in­clud­ing kick­box­ing, Pi­lates and yoga. She re­cently got cer­ti­fied to teach POUND®, which uses weighted flu­o­res­cent green drum­sticks. When Charl­ton’s hus­band died last Oc­to­ber, teach­ing al­lowed her to get away from the sad­ness for at least a few hours. “When you’re teach­ing a fit­ness class, you’re def­i­nitely in the mo­ment, in the en­ergy field,” she says.
