From a young age, Josh Rogers enjoyed the competition and rewards of athletics while growing up in the South. He credits his mother for teaching him the benefits of determination and hard work, which he would learn to apply in his studies and career. After high school, Rogers attended Western Kentucky University and graduated cum laude with a Bachelor of Science degree in Exercise Science with an emphasis in education. Rogers also earned personal training and group fitness certifications from the National Academy of Sports Medicine, as well as a Performance Enhancement Certification.
After a short tenure teaching and coaching in Kentucky, Rogers headed to Nashville, Tennessee as a fitness trainer where his cliental in Music City USA included country music artists, business executives and entertainment influencers. In 2006, Rogers created ENERGY FITNESS by josh, a ’boutique style” fitness company that provides people with the knowledge, guidance, and motivation to live a healthy lifestyle while enjoying their journey. “I love knowing that my job can truly change someone’s life and make them feel better about themselves,” says Rogers.
Rogers’ fitness techniques and client results have benefited a wide array of clients from entertainers to pageant contestants. “Fitness is a major factor in helping these beautiful women capture the crown, and I have had the opportunity to help many of the girls meet their fitness goals while pursuing state, national and international pageant titles,” says Rogers. Rogers is the official trainer for many pageant contestants that have competed in Miss Universe, Miss USA, Miss Teen USA, Miss America, Mrs. America, and many other state and national pageants. In fact, he trained the 2007 Miss USA, Rachel Smith, and the 2009 Miss Teen USA, Stormi Henley. Josh served as the Fitness Expert for the Miss Teen USA Fantasy Camp at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas.
Behind all the spotlight and attention of training celebrities, Josh’s true passion comes from helping individuals lose weight and make a healthy lifestyle change. One of the most rewarding compliments he has ever received came from a middle-age, overweight female client who stated, “You saved my life and helped me gain a new sense of self confidence. But most importantly, you pushed me to be a better person, not only physically but mentally. You made me feel like I was special!” It is people like that who put things in perspective and make him feel like he is truly making a difference in the lives of others. Rogers has been featured and contributed to many national publications and is a regular personality on Nashville’s NBC Affiliate Channel 4 “More at Midday,” and ABC Affiliate Channel 5 “Talk of the Town.” His resume also includes print modeling, and acting in television commercials and music videos. Rogers released his self titled DVD, “NO EXCUSES!!!”–a workout DVD geared towards all fitness levels in 2009, which is available online.
In early 2012, one of Josh’s life long dreams became a reality as he joined forces with long time Nashville trainer, Leann Fray, and they opened Nashville’s first boutique personal training/group fitness studio “RESULTS fitness.”
The renovated historic English tutor in the heart of Music Row includes a state of the art personal training facility, spin studio, group fitness studio, onsite massage therapy facility, BarreAmped Studio, and personal consultation area. For more information, visit www.resultsfitness.me.
