Move More: Jeff Rogers’ New Workout Series Features Music From Bon Iver
‘If you can just move your body for 15 minutes everyday, you'll feel a lot better,’ the local personal trainer says
If your New Year’s resolution is to get more active, now you have no excuse, thanks to a new YouTube workout series “Move More” created by Chippewa Valley-based personal trainer Jeff Rogers.
This new series comprises 15-minute full-body workouts that you can do any time, anywhere: your office, home, garden, bathroom, your creepy crawl space – hey, we won’t judge! “The best thing about these workouts is you can do it at your own pace, you can modify the workouts,” said Rogers, owner of RogCity Fitness. “We just want everybody to feel comfortable working out. And if you can just move your body for 15 minutes every day, you’ll feel a lot better.”
When someone is feeling a little anxious or sad or maybe a little defeated, just seeing what one workout can do for them is the most amazing thing in the world. I have always loved health and wellness. I love that working out can make people feel good.
Rogers’ workout series, which launched Jan. 3, features new music by Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver), Francis Starlite, and BJ Burton, with new music from local musicians on the horizon. Leading virtual workouts is nothing new for this experienced trainer, as he has offered FaceTime-based workouts to local musicians for years. Though he misses his in-home and in-person training sessions, such as “Pack The Park” – an outdoor fitness program – this new (and free!) workout series offers a judgement-free way to start getting active during pandemic times.
“No matter what is going on in the world, it is so important to take care of our health,” Rogers said. “Without good health, it’s hard to enjoy anything.”
The goal of the workout series is to get everyone moving: you, your grandma, your kids – experienced athletes and beginners alike. Rogers encourages folks to pause videos and modify exercises as needed. “Working out is meant to be convenient,” he said.
Every 7-10 days, Rogers hopes to add a new video to the series, which will run indefinitely.
