New addition played football for two seasons at Appalachian State
Charlie Woida was named the director of Montana's Athletic Performance Center in July 2012 after working two years as the assistant director.
Woida's appointment to director, which came at the age of 29, capped a meteoric rise in the field of collegiate athletic performance for the Eagle Bend, Minn., native.
Woida, who played football and baseball at Fergus Falls (Minn.) Community College and baseball at Division II Northern State in Aberdeen, S.D., began his career with an internship in the spring of 2006 at the National Institute for Fitness and Sport in Indianapolis, Ind.
That opportunity allowed him to work with the volleyball, soccer, basketball and softball teams at Indiana University-Purdue University of Indianapolis.
Woida's five-month internship started a hopscotch stretch of short-term positions in the strength and conditioning field: North Dakota State, the San Diego Padres, back to NDSU, back to the Padres, Minnesota, South Dakota State and Colorado State before a summer stint at Noonan Sports Specialists in Alexandria, Minn.
That's where Woida was working when he was hired by Montana in August 2010.
Woida received his bachelor's degree in fitness management from Northern State in 2006 and master's in exercise science from North Dakota State in 2008.
