F45’s Impact on Your Community and the U.S. Military

  •  Season 1, Episode 16

Today on the podcast, get a vibe for the positive energy and wisdom of Chas Rodgers, the Operations and Performance Officer for F45 Training’s VIP45 program. Chas walks us through the F45 training model and describes what they’re doing to prepare our soldiers for combat readiness as well as prime them for a fitness career after their service is finished. As program lead, he and his teams mentor veterans and active duty personnel from all branches of service who have a passion for fitness and helping others. They help them to study the science and craft of fitness while training to become part of our global fit pro family. A US Navy veteran, Chas also describes his early service days and discusses how his career was launched by teaching group ex classes on military bases and on Navy ships.

The conversation also touches on why diversity, equity and inclusion are so important to the future of our industry, and moves into some serious discussion about Chas’ journey navigating prostate cancer. There are so many great takeaways, you won’t want to miss a moment of this episode.
