About this pro

Fitness has to be a holistic approach, not just an exercise routine. Proper hydration, individualized nutrition(not only to achieve your goal, but that is also lifestyle adaptable), proper rest and recovery, and setting realistic goals, understanding that there are no quick fixes for achieving fitness goals.

I address each individual's own needs, taking into account: realistically how much time per week they have available, past exercise experience, injuries, structural limitations, current eating habits, rest habits, level of stress, etc.

I've trained people for general fitness, both weight loss and weight gain; for athletic endeavors; for bodybuilding, physique, figure and bikini competitions; for powerlifting; for modeling.

I've been able to train people at gyms, homes, rec centers, and outdoors.

I've actually mentored many well known fitness gurus, like Larry North.

First of all, I enjoy people! I enjoy discussing their goals, and helping them figure out how to achieve them, realistically. After 44 years of working with individuals and groups, I love hearing how I've been able to impact their lives in a positive way, both with regards to physical and emotional health. People who decide to make fitness a priority: have much more energy, have much more endurance, have a much more positive attitude, have much less stress, have much better posture, have much more restful sleep, have much less vulnerabilty to cravings for the wrong foods, and have a far better quality of life.

I love to get a chance to share my testimony about having been a morbidly obese child with no self esteem, and God taking all of that and turning it around completely to be used for His glory.

    Roland is a fantastic personal trainer. Roland takes all strengths and weakness into account. He works with you and looks at the total picture, both exercise and nutrition. I worked with Roland for over 15 years and only stopped because I moved 70 miles away and it became difficult to travel on a regular basis.

  • Dane Lacey

    His sincere interest in me and my needs as well as his keen attention to detail. Unlike other trainers, who are more interested in their cell phones and how they look in the mirror, Roland watches every move I make. He is a stickler on correct form and legitimate biomechanics! His clients, myself included think he’s the best. Besides having more experience than most of them, he’s actually trained many people, who later became trainers!

  • Alan Dorbritz

    He is very knowledgeable in all areas of physical training. He is not your everyday trainer who just counts reps. He gives you a program for success and helps you obtain your goals. Coupled with a winning personality he has a wonderful outlook on life and what it takes to succeed.

  • Chris Riegel

    I’ve weight trained most of my adult life. Mostly with trainers. As a physician, like surgical technique, correct form is everything with athletics. I quit using trainers who weren’t paying attention or forgot old injuries I told them to watch out for. I knew Roland from my church class 25-30 years ago. When I decided to get back into training, Roland was the only choice. We’ve been training together 2 1/2 years. I watch the other trainers at my gym. They are on their phones, not even watching the client paying them $100/hour. Horrible form that could injure them and no one watching! Roland is on time, every time. He is watching and checking my form all the time. Roland started out as a guy I knew years ago. He is not only a great trainer, but also a great guy and trusted friend.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I charge for packages of sessions, so that a client can learn their routine, and then have the independence and knowledge to do it on their own, but they will have sessions saved up for workout check ups and upgrades.

I also have pricing by the month for those who want the guidance and accountability for all of their workouts.

How did you get started teaching?

I began because of my interest in my own health, eventually becoming a top level competitive bodybuilder, finishing well in 3 Mr America competitions, many years back.

What types of students have you worked with?

Sudents wanting to lose weight and look and feel better up to top level competitors and athletes.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I've recently been working with a lady, who is a Secret Service agent. I helped her prepare for her entrance fitness test, which she scored higher on than any other female!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Make sure to get references and look at reviews. Experience and education are key. No two people are alike, so no two can be handled by a trainer in a similar fashion.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What your long and short term goals are?

Realistically,how much time you can put into fitness?

How important is correct eating?

How important is rest and recovery?

How important are stress levels in your life?

Can you submit to accountability?
