Roger

Roger not only trains individuals to achieve their maximum fitness/physical potential but strives for individuals to meet their mental potential as well. While you are working hard, Roger is right there with you every step of the way going above and beyond what one expects from their personal trainer.

I firmly believe that you control you. You are responsible for what you see in the mirror each and every day.

That being said, I am a realist. Not everyone knows how to initiate physical change. Not everyone has a firm grasp on the building blocks of exercise and nutrition. Not everyone has an easy time staying motivated and setting positive goals for growth. There are obstacles that stand in the way of the ideal you.

Who are you, Roger?

Professionally I am a Personal Fitness Trainer and Lifestyle and Weight Management Consultant. My daily passion is running Relentless Fitness, my Philadelphia based personal training studio.

My fitness background is not exactly what you'd call traditional, with a career that began in finance as a bond trader. What can I say? I didn't like the desk or the lifestyle. A major career move later, I was training friends, moving up the ranks at a local gym, branding Relentless Fitness, and moving it to its current studio home.

The unorthodox background gives me several advantages. I am here because I want to be; this is my passion. I can better relate to anyone out there dealing with the stresses of everyday life and desiring change. My analytical side assures that I will never stop learning, growing, and getting better — for myself and naturally for you as well.

Personally I am aggressive by nature; I love a challenge. Tell me I can't, and I will say I can, I will, I must. The more pressure the better.

I am also known as Relentless Roger.

A session with Roger is more than just a workout; it's a life lesson. I come away from every session with more tools to live healthfully and make good choices.

Roger understands how hard the journey is, but he is supremely good at breaking down barriers, eliminating excuses, and making the path clear and open so that making those healthy choices is just a little bit easier.

While many people indeed have personal trainers to guide and assist them in reaching their fitness goals, I must say with conviction that Roger represents more than a trainer; he is my personal fountain of youth.

-Joan Pileggi

I have been to many trainers who seem to use the same circuit (that I can probably do on my own) on all their clients. With Roger I found he listens to my individual needs and incorporates them into my workout.

-Ann Marie Borys

As a 74 year old man who, just over a year ago, suffered a severe heart attack I consider myself lucky to be exercising every day—I am very lucky to work out with Roger. My physical health amazes my doctors and my mental health makes every day a pleasure for me. I look forward to our sessions together and the continuing good health results.

-Bernard Spain

Roger's refreshing enthusiasm and extensive knowledge of personal fitness and training is clearly evident from day one of training with him. He has a great way of consistently maintaining that enthusiasm over time by keeping training routines fresh, challenging and fun. Best of all, Roger makes you feel great about your progress and positive results – getting stronger and healthier everyday!

-Claire DiNardo

Simply put, Roger understood what I wanted and implemented a way for me to get there. He has stayed motivated and kept me focused throughout a fitness journey that has had tangible and visible rewards. I now understand the complexities of my workouts and my diet, and how adhering to or straying from either will positively or adversely impact me. That clarity has been priceless. I still have a long way to go, but I now look forward to building on the foundation that I sought in vain for so long. There is no ceiling. Thanks, Roger.

Training with Roger not only got me in shape for my first triathlon but boosted my daily energy and stamina. Roger develops a goal-oriented program that matches your personal objectives and enhances overall strength; plus, his workouts are fun!

Roger and I started working together about 3 months before my wedding. With such a short window I didn’t know what kind of results I would get. We talked about my goals and what was most important for the wedding then he created workouts specifically for what I needed. He constantly encouraged me telling me that I could get where I wanted to be. By the time my wedding came I looked and felt better than I have since high school! My wedding pictures looked awesome thanks to Roger!
