Rodie is an excellent trainer! I first came to him a month and a half before my wedding and in that little bit of time he helped me get  stronger, leaner and fine-tune my eating habits. With his help, I was able to gain muscle for my wedding and look my best. Rodie would push me to my limits and by the time we would finish working out I was dripping in sweat. Rodie really knows his craft, and is an excellent motivator. He is very passionate about his work and it shows! Rodie is an amazing trainer for anyone looking to get fit, lose weight and live healthier.

There are not enough words I can say that will describe how incredible Rodie is. When I trained with him, my body was at its ultimate peak. He helped me grow a booty I didn’t even know was possible! He is also a perfectionist at helping the body recover with the best massages and stretches. After a hell workout, he knows how to get in your good books again! Thank you Rodie for being such a positive change in my life

I started working with Roddie because I wanted to lose those last stubborn 20 pounds. Working with Roddie not only helped me lose weight but sculpt my body and gain confidence. I thought I was in pretty good shape when I started working with roadie but he kicked my butt every single time and pushed me to my limits making results visible quick. My son also started training with Roddie and he did such an amazing job with my son. He has such a positive energy and a way of working with people that makes it fun by get things done at the same time. My son gained not only muscle and definition but confidence as well. Roddie also has magic hands anything hurting your body, he will fix it. You want results, you gotta work with the best, which is Roddie…

Working with Rodie has had a very positive impact on me, and I would highly recommend him for anyone looking to repair injuries, as well as for general training purposes. I immediately felt comfortable with Rodie as it was clear he was very experienced in his line of work. He possesses the rare ability to be personable, yet at the same time being able to push you, in whatever area you are looking to focus on. I came to Rodie in search of a way to repair an injured elbow that had been nagging me for months, as well as a chronically stiff and sometimes sore neck. Our sessions evolved into addressing a number of other problem areas through some really effective body work. Rodie not only fixed my elbow and neck, but he also took the time to educate me on ways to self-manage these areas as time goes on. He is also helping me to prepare for an endurance race taking place later this year. Anyone looking to get their butt kicked for this line of training, look no further!! It is extremely hard to find someone this experienced in “real world” healing, who can apply very practical, hands-on methods. Rodie you are the man, thank you!

– Pat Geary

From the moment I met Rodie, I knew he was the person to put my butt into shape, the trainer that could possibly achieve my goals. I began training with Rodie in June of 2012. Throughout the time I trained with him, I not only got stronger but learned more about the fitness industry and training.  I was challenged and pushed by Rodie, the different variations of exercises and his involvement in our training was just what I wanted in a trainer and made me push that much harder. He made working out fun and inspired me to reach new goals.

Rodie is very passionate in what he does, he is there to help, and make sure you reach your goals, he connects with his clients.  He is knowledgeable in just about every type of fitness you are interested in, just let’s say he is well versed in fitness. If it were not for him I think I would have given up in in trying to continue with my hobby of being a fitness instructor.

Rodie is very caring and attentive to what my needs were, what my limits were, and never once allowed me to give up. He encourages and motivated me to do better.  I did refer a couple people to Rodie, they too loved him and were inspired by him as well.  With Rodie not only do you meet an awesome Trainer, but make a friend for life!

My name is Sean Flanagan. I have had the pleasure of working with Rodie. I have always been a athlete and consistently pushing my barriers on all levels. I have had several teachers which were all amazing, before I came across RodieRodie has pushed me to levels I never knew I could reach while at the same time implementing proper recovery protocols. His knowledge and wisdom is priceless. He is one of the most motivating and inspiring people in my life! Highly recommended for anyone searching to be better on all levels!
Sean Flanagan

I’ve been training with Rodie for 10+ years now and he is one of the best trainers I’ve ever met.  I started with him as a young professional aspiring mixed martial artist trying to get into the UFC and after three years later I reach that goal.  he’s help me both physically and mentally  prepare for fights, and training sessions. I’ve watched him help so many other athletes like myself reach their goals. Rodie‘s not just a trainer he’s an amazing human being Who just loves to help people.

– Forever a student and friend Shannon Gugerty

First of all, I’m one of the biggest skeptics out there when it comes to things that sound “too good to be true.” I’ve had a bad knee since college (dealing with pain, swelling and popping for 10 years sucks). I’ve had 4 total surgeries on one knee, 2 major ACL/meniscus tears, a tibia plateau fracture, a knee scope and all of that resulted in Kaiser telling me that I was partial bone on bone, that I have an arthritic knee and that they couldn’t do anything else to help me. They basically said stop running, working out, and doing the things you love. I’d always tried to tough it out because if my knee was going to hurt I might as well have the rest of my body feel good after exercising.

I first heard about Rodie through one of the awesome trainers, Raul Reyes, at the Boxing Club. He said Rodie was a “Witch Dr” who’s helped numerous athletes recover from devastating injuries. I blew off Raul’s advice for a while to meet Rodie until my knee got so bad that it was hurting just walking around the office and getting out of bed that week. I called Rodie, told him some of my symptoms and we set an appointment for a consultation.

It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made, hands down! Rodie had a unique way of repairing some of the clicking/popping issues I had going on in my knee (lots of pain at the moment he does it, followed by a “too good to be true” feeling of relief, lightness, and fluidity). He also tells you straight up about the areas you need to improve (my right leg was way weaker than my left from years of babying it) and how to go about doing it. Rodie really has a gift for healing and my knee feels WAY better than before I first started treatment with him. I really did feel a hopelessness with that knee and he blew my expectations out of the water. I wish I had reached out to him or been introduced to him sooner.

Also, as you get to know Rodie, he has a ton of wisdom outside the traditional health benefits of whatever’s bugging you (he does more than knees). He also has a lot of very practical and helpful life advice on life philosophy, diet, exercise, sales (my profession), etc. He has  a no-nonsense approach and it’s one that you have to work at, but literally results are up to you if you listen to what Rodie tells you and put in the work.

Rodie is an awesome guy and I can’t recommend him strongly enough!

Joe Anderson

Rodie’s skills are apparent to all. As a Team Usa Athlete and the 4 time Usa boxing National Champion, it is very important that my body is healthy and injury free. It is inevitable for high functioning/professional athletes who train 3-5 hours a day, to once in a while hit a bump in the road and get an injury. Some injuries can take 3-6 months if not taken care of, Rodie gets me up and running in no time! He gets me back on my feet in just a few sessions!

Rodie is highly motivated and interested in getting athletes and non-athletes back to their regular activities as soon as possible. Rodie is a kind and compassionate individual who is committed to helping people through their difficult times with injuries with his expertise. Physical therapy and active release therapy are just the tip of the iceberg of what Rodie is knowledgable in and capable of doing with his injured clients.  I have the highest admiration for his knowledge and how passionate he is about what he does. Rodie IS the injury wizard!

Sincerely,

Danyelle Wolf

My name is Cassie, and at 24 years old I was kicked by a horse while pinned on a truck.  The horse struck my face, head, and body multiple times causing my teeth to be kicked through my nose, my skull to be cracked open, brain hemorrhages, and numerous body contusions.  This accident left me with severely limited mobility in my neck and debilitating headaches.

These headaches lasted anywhere from one to three days and every week without fail.  No medication could ease the pain.  I went to every specialist available, evaluated by neurosurgeons, did physical therapy, chiropractic, acupuncture, and massage.  All with little to no results.  Each specialist simply told me I was lucky to be alive.  My good friend John recommended I talk to Rodie about my problems.  I went in expecting to be promised the world and given nothing yet again.  Rodie ran me through a quick evaluation then told me he could cure me in two weeks.  I resisted laughing in his face since no one had ever made such a bold claim.

I signed up because I had nothing to lose.  First week I had one small headache lasting three hours.  I stuck with the training program, diet, and exercises and the second week I didn’t have a headache.  Now it is six months later and I’m headache free, I have full mobility in my neck, and thirty-two pounds lighter.  Rodie gave me in two weeks what every other person failed to do in six years.  He gave me the greatest gift I could ever ask for, my life back.

Cassie Hagey

I came to Rodie a month after I quit smoking, I had gained about 20 pounds, and felt depressed. I couldn’t even do one push up when I first started training with him. Rodie never gave up on me, and encouraged me along the way. He pushed me hard, and believed in me. I have been training with him for almost 2 years now, and I have dropped those 20 pounds, along with 10% body fat, and the other day I did a set of 75 non stop push ups. All of my friends know who Rodie is even though they have never met him. This is because I talk about him all the time. He truly helped changed my life, and I never knew the extent of what the human body can handle! I get anticipatory high on the way to go train with him. I know it will be hard and he will push me hard, but without his belief in me I would not have achieve the level that I am at today. I have trained with many trainers and I will say without a shadow of a doubt that Rodie is the best at what he does! He is the trainer’s trainer!

– Amber Nicole Irwin

Highly recommended.
Rodie was very professional and knowledgeable. I had some scar tissues that needed to be broken down properly to aid my post surgery recovering progress. He was very enthusiastic with my needs while advising what was best for me, understanding that each client is different and unique.

Rodie will definitely be my go to person from this point forward. I’ve already recommended him to my family and good friends. One other thing I know is that he will never make you feel like you’re just an account to his business.

– Maria S.

I have to say your training sessions are absolutely insane.  I’ve always been an extremely active person, from playing football to wrestling but nothing has kicked my but like the training session with you.  The thing I don’t get is despite how challenging our workout sessions are I am always so excited and pumped on the days we train.  To be honest there were times that I thought you had it out for me and you were trying to kill me but in hindsight I know you were just pushing me past the limits I set for myself.  And that’s why the results speak for themselves, since we started training again my clothes fit better, I can play three hours of basketball before I get tired and most importantly I lost 6% body fat less then 8 weeks.  I feel better, look better and have energy for days.

Thanks again for changing my life for the better!!

– Khash Faily

I’ve been training with Rodie for many years now, and believe me he is one of the most experienced & committed trainers around. I started training twice a week, really enjoyed the variety & challenge he put into each session and also took on personal one-on-one sessions as well!

There were times I thought it was too hard and I wanted to give up; however all the hard work Rodie had put in with me kept me motivated to keep going. I’ve been through 60 trainers or so and could not find the right trainer? Trust me, this will be the last place you will look hands down. This is your one stop shop!

“He is the outstanding master of craft; incredibly bright with a treasure trove of health and fitness knowledge; expert in running, weight training, martial arts; and a warm, spontaneous personality. Rodie is brimming with the brains to help anyone achieve the brawn. He’s the real deal in an industry full of wannabees and is the standard by which any trainer should be measured.”

“Rodie is a truly top notch trainer. He is the perfect combination of tough and works with your whole being — mentally, emotionally and physically.

Thank you Rodie, you are the best!!!

Rodie is the best trainer I’ve ever worked with.  If you are looking for a trainer so you can just go through the motion, than Rodie isn’t the trainer for you.  IF you want result than you’ve found the best place.

Rodie’s a masterful trainer, will get you in the best shape of your life.

Rodie is one amazing trainer! When I worked with him he kicked my butt in all the right ways and I got great results in a short amount of time! He knows just how to push you without pushing you away.  He has a really big heart and a caring approach with this clients. But he is no pushover he clearly knows how to get you to do what you need to do, even when you don’t want to do it, now that’s a true art!

Thanks Rodie for the amazing experience and look forward to working more with you in the future!

– Steve Rodgers

Rodie is the best!  He  provided quality time,   excellent workout facility and equipments!  Including extensive knowledge,  experience, motivator and great personality! Received positive results in training and rehab services!!! Its a pleasure working with him!

– Arnida Mosure

If you literally want to die workout with Rodie! Haha! J/k..but he really does kick your butt! Awesome work-out!

– Geena The Latina

For a butt-kicking workout, Rodie is definitely your man. He makes working out challenging and fun, and you will definitely get the results you are looking for. He’s encouraging and a great motivator, but tough!

– Christy Corpuz

Without question, my prize workouts are always with Rodie. They are also my hardest workouts. He is an elite trainer who always brings out my best. Rodie will work you to your limit and you will transcend your goals. He will turn you into a powerhouse!

As a professional mixed martial artist UFC veteran of over 22 fights with the organization since 2007 I’ve put my body through the max and pushed myself beyond my limits. When I started my pro career since 2005 I’ve always trained hard and put my body through extreme pain and one thing I’ve found out most important in this game is health! Health is number one because if your not healthy your not able to do what you want or what you love. Through injuries I’ve discovered Rodie. Let me tell ya that I’ve used Rodie and his rehab witch doctor abilities for several UFC fights and all throughout camp. There is no one like him of his knowledge and hands on physical rehab. In this game you need someone like Rodie to keep you healthy and just in life’s pains in general. Rather you sit at a desk or lifting and moving around a lot or travel for business; we all know life can bring stress, injuries, aches and pains. Rodie has been a key element in keeping me stress and pain free throughout my career for over 2 years now. I recommended Rodie to several day to day people and some of my top training partners. All have came out with Amazing results and now are apart of a weekly routine in maintaining good rehab from the best out there. Rodie is key part of physical rehab, inflammation, nutrition, and so much more and on top of all that he truly cares to help. He doesn’t half ass like massage therapist. He believes in making sure he releases whatever pains or aches you may be having or he will keep working or have you back immediately to keep up with fixing the problem. Rodie is a true friend of mine and someone I’ve learned to grow and trust in. I believe he truly helps people and he can help you as well. My career still goes on in the UFC and top training thanks to this guy and keeping me healthy! Thanks Rodie

1. I have been actively working out for most my adult life and as a result have had over ten personal trainers that have come from a variety of different backgrounds. I have never meet one trainer until being introduced to Rodie that has the training knowledge with the ability to motivate you AND repair you body in the way he can!

2. I have had numerous personal trainers with a variety of different backgrounds ranging from Recon Marines to formally educated Physical therapist and I have never meet any one trainer who had the training expertise with phsical therapy expertise that rodie does.

3. Iv’e been working out with rodie for sometime now and in order to get out of sprints I challenged him to a push up contest, but he had to do one handed push ups while I did two handed push ups. Since, I can do well over 60 push ups I thought this was an easy way to get out of sprints. The man easily did over 100 one handed push ups while talking trash as I crumbled after 80. Enough said, Hire Rodie.

I have been working with Rodie for 3 years. It has been an amazing experience- I’m in better shape than I have ever been. He keeps it interesting and really helps not with just exercise but muscle work- getting rid of knots. He has helped my family too.  I would recommend him wholeheartedly. My daughter is one of his interns. He helped her realize that she wants to study kinesiology in college.

Rodie is an excellent trainer! I first came to him a month and a half before my wedding and in that little bit of time he helped me get stronger, leaner and fine-tune my eating habits. With his help, I was able to gain muscle for my wedding and look my best. Rodie would push me to my limits and by the time we would finish working out I was dripping in sweat. Rodie really knows his craft, and is an excellent motivator. He is very passionate about his work and it shows!

Rodie is everything you need in a trainer…he’s got a wealth of experience in fitness and nutrition…he motivates you…and he KICKS YOUR BUTT!! It’s pointless to go into the gym and ride an elliptical machine for an hour. You’re just wasting your time. A half hour with Rodie will have you crippled for a couple days but if you stick with it you’ll be a BEAST in a couple weeks. You can’t achieve your goals without a lot of hard work and Rodie will be there with you pushing you to reach them whether you want to or not. So stop reading this, get in touch with Rodie, and GET AFTER IT.

Rodie is incredible! He has fixed me up so many times and saved me when I was in a lot of pain. I’ve called him with excruciating back problems, unable to move at times, and he has made house calls to come and relieve my pain. He also is so much fun to train with. When my back is healthy enough I love to work out with him. I am a beginner and he’s given me confidence and helped me learn some cool moves and worked out my core. He is extremely knowledgable about how to treat and keep the entire body healthy in every way. And he’s a bad ass ninja!!

– Kristen Sitz

As a professional fighter, it is normal to acquire injuries due to overtraining or accidents. I recently suffered a shoulder injury that made it very difficult to raise my arm up past a certain point. I went and saw Rodie the day after the accident occurred, and within a quick 15 minute session he was able to help me get my range of motion back in my shoulder. The most significant thing that Rodie was able to do for me, was treat a pulled quadricep muscle in my leg. My leg was so painful at one point, that I was unable to walk without limping. Rodie was able to treat my leg, and within 30 minutes, I was able to run and take a wrestling shot without any pain in my leg. I highly recommend his services! He is an absolute miracle worker!

– Christine Stanley

Working as Rodie’s intern has been such an experience! I feel stronger and more confident about myself. He is a very wise and motivational person, through his leadership skills I was able to kick-start the body I want while learning a ton about boxing. I started out not being able to finish his work out’s because they really do kick your ass and now I’m progressing and doing much better! He’s the best you can get!

– Nienah

Brody is top-notch! He’s one of the most humble, helpful, genuine, and intelligent people I know at my gym. Brody helped me during difficult times I had with my elbow. I suffer from tendonitis and for a long time, I had a weak and delicate left elbow. Brody approached me while I was massaging my elbow, he asked me a few questions and volunteered to perform some exercises and stretches for it. After a few weeks, my pain went away. He’s constantly asking how I am doing and checks my elbow without my asking! He’s definitely one of the best I know in San Diego.

– Danielle Ocampo

I met Rodie thru a coworker, who had been training him for awhile. I thought I was ready for my first workout. Since I had worked out with personal trainers at the gym before. But I had no idea what was waiting for me! The workouts are literally a killer! And after my first workout I was seeing little stars…. But I survived my first workout and that motivated to go again.

The workouts are different. Rodie customizes them for your own individual goals. He also changes the number of repetitions and amount of weights according to you as an individual. Don’t complain or he will add more repetitions! He understands your weaknesses and strengths, so when he asks you do 50 reps even though your mind tells you “OMG…. I’ll DIE!!” If Rodie says you can do it, you can and you will! He motivates you to reach beyond what you thought you could accomplish.

When I first started with Rodie I was at my highest weight. Every week I see the process I have made, which is more motivating. Between the gym and working out with Rodie there is no comparison. One workout with Rodie is like going to the gym everyday for a whole week.
Diet wise, Rodie advises you individually. And if you cheat, somehow he will know! :/ be prepared to pay for it.

Both my sister and I have been coming to workout with Rodie and the results we have gotten we couldn’t have gotten by going to the gym. We always recommend Rodie to our friends because he’s the BEST!

– Suzy

Rodie is a miracle worker. I had surgery on my wrist for a ligament tear and went through months of rehabilitation and physical therapy, but my wrist constantly had pain, lack of motion, and weakness. After a year of dealing with those symptoms and thinking that was simply how my wrist was going to be for the rest of my life, I met Rodie. Within three weeks, my wrist was back to normal. No pain, no weakness, no lack of motion. He managed to do in three weeks what months of therapy could not. He is the man!

– Derek B

I am 57 years old and I needed a total knee replacement. I started working with Rodie 6 months before the operation. My recovery was amazing, I was able to straighten my knee completely and have 120 degree motion, which amazed even the surgeon. Without the help of Rodie, none of this would have been possible. He is truly the Dalai Lama of physical therapy.

  • David Baum

I had complete knee replacement 10 years ago. Was never back 100%. Knee was achy on a daily basis could not run or do weighed squats. After just 1 session with Rodie my knee had never felt better. I can run, I can jump even weighted squats and presses. I wish i knew Rodie 10 yrs ago. I thought the pain was the way it was going to be the rest of my life. I can honestly say I’m more energetic and healthy now knowing my knees are not my excuse anymore. Rodie is truly a life saver. Comfort and mobility are priceless.

Thank You Rodie

– Nikolas Hull

After suffering from headaches all of my adult life, I must admit that I was quite the skeptic when told that I could be free from them. But, free from headaches is exactly what I am!!!

The first session I had with Rodie at Done Gym, in addition to a kick ass workout, he gave me a few exercises and stretches to do at home that would help release the tension in my neck and head. The next day he asked if I had a headache yet. Still skeptical that it would last, I told him no.

The next day and the next and the next, he asked the same question and still the answer was no. After a week of him asking and the answer still being no, this skeptic became a believer!! I had gone a whole week without being plagued by a headache in over 10 years!!! And I am still headache free! When something works, STICK WITH IT! I am absolutely amazed that I have not had a headache in over a month.

-Cynthia Thomas

Rodie the coolest guy i have every had the pleasure of working out with. Every work out is a work out to remember and there is never a dull moment. Everybody that i have ever brought has thrown up at least once but they always come back for more.

Rodon =10/10
(Ask about the tazer.)

On Friday evening I visited Mr. Witch Doctor for the first time, I’ve always been involved in sports and have injuries that date back 15 years ago, in less than an hour Rodie was able to release all of the pain and tension I was feeling in all of my joints.

When I left I felt like I was walking on air I felt so fluid. Some of my past injured include: arthritis in the knee, a dislocated shoulder, torn rib muscles, a pinched nerve, and a dislocated tendon.

All of my previous injuries have built up scar tissue that Rodie was about to help me with, thank you so much for helping me I’m truly grateful for your magic hands!

Paula Santos – atleta de Crossfit
Lesão de Joelho esquerdo Ligamento Cruzado Anterior  e Menisco Lateral. Meu depoimento aqui é de agradecimento por tudo que o Rodie já fez por mim, sou muita grata de te-lo conhecido. Quando sofri o rompimento do meu tendão no joelho fiquei muito triste é desencorajada, sei que muito atletas passam por lesões similares e que conseguem voltar ao seu esporte, mas ver meu joelho naquela situação me assustou muito.
Eu precisava de um profissional que fosse especialista em atletas com lesões de joelho e Rodie havia trazido Dominic Cruz de volta ao Octógono e para retomar seu Cinturão, o que ninguém acreditava que seria possível, pois Dominic já vinha de várias outras cirurgias naquele mesmo joelho.
Sem duvida o primeiro profissional que veio na minha cabeça para ser meu fisioterapeuta foi o Rodie, eu estou evoluindo muito e a cada dia me sinto meu joelho melhorar e sei que muito em breve estarei realizando meu esporte em 100% da minha capacidade.
Obrigada Rodie por me tratar e ser meu amigo, você é excelente.
