Roger is a type 1 diabetic. Yet, he’s probably one of the healthiest people in America.
Just because you’ve heard things like — “you don’t have the genetics to be fit; this disease will be with you for a lifetime; you’re always going to be overweight; you’re too old to get fit” — doesn’t mean you can’t become your fittest self.
If you’ve ever been overweight, unhealthy and didn’t know what to do about it, Roger can relate. Because in 2010, he was that person. He knows what it’s like to step into a gym 80 pounds heavier than he is today. Roger has a unique insight that few fitness coaches have.
“I just want to help people progress. Help them to improve a little each day. And one day, after putting in the work, they’re going to wake up and realize they’re finally a healthy, fit person.”
Roger not only made a 180 degree turn with his fitness, in 2012, he became a fitness coach. He’s one of the most motivating coaches you’ll find. He’s loved by both newbies to fitness and those at a high level of fitness.
When he’s not coaching, you can find Roger with his wife, Karla, and three kids. He enjoys cooking healthy food that taste really good and fishing. Word on the street is that he can cook a mean salmon fillet!
