Roger – Gym Worker and Group Exercise Instructor (Circuits, Spinning and Kettlebells)
I attained my Diploma in Personal Training with Future Fit between 2012 and 2015 whilst transitioning from a full (22+ year) army career. It was during my time in the Army that I discovered my passion for fitness – in particular after having been sidelined with a back injury for a few years and having to ‘rebuild’ myself. This first-hand experience of injury recovery and how to safely lose weight and return to fitness has proven invaluable so far both during the study to qualify and whilst working with clients.
Having been a club swimmer as a child, I’m now more into running, representing local club the Dorset Doddlers, and I’ve dabbled a little in triathlons. I live in Sturminster Newton with my wife and son, where I’m also a retained firefighter.
My classes at Sturfit:
Tuesdays 6:45am – Circuit Training
Wednesdays 6:45am – Group Indoor Cycling (Spinning)
Thursdays 6:45am – Kettlebell
Classes are carefully planned to be suitable for ALL levels of exerciser.
