Roger Bowman Jr.

Toledo, OH 43606

Greetings - as of February 2023 from West Toledo, Ohio! I Specialize in helping middle aged (30+) men and women with goals of improving body composition (fat to muscle ratio) and health in their quest to look & feel their best!

My approach is taking a modified body building approach or in other words, we are "building your body" to strong and healthy standards with very methodical and safe approaches doing so, especially with aging bodies. This all with implementing education on correlated areas such as understanding foods/nutrition, hormones/endocrinology and more as it pertains to each individual's goals.

I have worked with hundreds of clients as a certified personal trainer with American Counsel on Exercise (ACE) since 2003. I'm also a certified Health Coach and Weight Management Specialist with ACE. I work as wellness consultant, personal trainer, and among all other things fitness and lifestyle relate, I earned my IFBB pro card in men’s physique in 2013.

You can also learn and investigate me further, see more up to date/recent client reviews and more with Google search "Roger Bowman's Fitness and Wellness Coaching".

On top of my training business I managed a health food store for 9 years (long ago at this point). And currently, I run a consulting business working with clients nationwide and as a liaison with a wellness and hormone optimizing medical group (Youth-Rx dot com). I help clients to understand as well as guide them with their doctor supervised HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy), wellness, training and supplement programs they are on. This is a big part of my day to day work.

I am a former part owner of the nutritional supplement company called Size Slim, in which I was heavily involved with product development and educational content.

I believe smart training AND nutrition/body balance need to go together correctly and consistently to look and feel your best. I firmly believe the client/trainer relationship needs to be more than the hour together spent at the gym. A "road map" needs to be put together to achieve your health and fitness goals. I like to be the coach that educates and guides you through that if your willing to travel the path it takes to get from point A to point B.

I work with a select number of local clients at my private gym off Executive Parkway in Toledo, Ohio. The facility is extremely clean and has top notch equipment. I look forward to helping you look and feel your best!

    I have always struggled with my weight. Roger set up a nutrition program that was basically fool proof, as long as my willpower was strong. He didn't just tell me what to eat and what not to eat, but he taught me the science of WHY and WHEN to eat it. Which has empowered me to change my habits and lead a much more healthy and fulfilling life. He is a professional, he always has time to answer my questions, and I have never felt like I was wasting his time or bothering him.

    I've been working out with Roger for 8 weeks around my busy work schedule. Roger has been very motivation but even more important for me; he has been educational! There is so much I didn't know from nutrition, to how to get the most out of a work out, and even how to get a good workout with minimal tools(such as in a hotel gym). Roger keeps me accountable but is in no way over bearing and I still look forward to working with him at least twice a week.

    My biggest area of struggle is definitely diet, carbs specifically. Roger has done a lot of additional coaching that he didn't have to because he really wants me to make the best choice for me. I definitely think twice before grabbing that table bread that is so addicting when dining.

    I would recommend working with Roger to anyone who is looking to make that positive change. Most of us need a little help and coaching and Roger is the best.

    I trained with Roger for only 6 weeks, 2x per week in preparation for a vacation but I learned so much from our time together. He was a great resource, not only for strength training but also for proper nutrition. He's very knowledgeable, and has a complete understanding how the body works and how different types of foods affect it. During EVERY session I learned something new, and now I can carry those lessons with me when I go to the gym and/or diet on my own.

    I use to be an active exerciser but fell off the wagon for a year, losing a lot of my definition and strength. In our time together, Roger really helped bring me back to feeling strong again, and being more toned. I could especially see and feel a difference with my arms and lower body. It felt great to be back at heavy weights again and Roger really helped push me to my limit! That's exactly what you need to progress and not plateau. He was patient if I wasn’t performing an exercise right, always corrected my form (that’s a good thing!), and encouraged me when I performed well. I definitely saw my body change from training with Roger.

    Diet wise, I love food and have never controlled or limited my food intake. I also have no idea what is truly "healthy" or what nutrition is needed to help transform my body. Working with Roger was a tremendous step forward in eating right. He would recommend specific brands, show me how to pack/portion my foods, and even outlined an eating plan for me to accelerate my goals. He even provided supplement samples which is great cause I hate committing to large purchases before testing the product first. Roger was very accessible outside of our sessions and would respond to any questions I had about diet or exercise.

    Ultimately our time together was short but beneficial. If I hadn't moved so far away, Roger would be my go-to trainer!

    I’ve been training with Roger for the past 3 months. I feel that he has been extremely supportive of my fitness goals. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in making improvements in how they look and feel. Your overall fitness will definitely improve when you work with him.

    Roger is an extremely supportive, patient, and professional individual. His knowledge and enthusiasm is unmistakable during every training session. His constant mentoring has helped me to improve my form especially when dealing with free weights. This is something I had previously struggled with. Through his teaching and encouragement, I feel much more confident when training on my own. That, to me, is priceless. In addition, Roger is extraordinarily knowledgeable about proper nutrition and supplementation. He has helped me tremendously to get my diet on track and has helped me learn a lot about how the food I eat affects my body.

    I can honestly say that I look forward to every training session. I plan to continue working with Roger to reach my health and fitness goals. He is truly an outstanding trainer. Thanks Roger!

    I've been working with Roger for just about a year now, and if you had told me that a guy in his mid-50's with a largely sedentary job (I'm a Presbyterian pastor) could achieve the level of strength, endurance and overall fitness that I now enjoy, I would have laughed out loud! Thanks to Roger's dedication, patience, and at times toughness, I'm in better shape than I've ever been (including my years in the military). Roger's expertise goes beyond training; he's also extremely well-versed in nutrition and vitamin supplements, and perhaps most important he's not just a talented gym guy - he truly cares about the total person he's working with, regularly checking in between training sessions with tips and encouragement. If youi're in the market for a personal trainer, you can't do any better than to get in touch with Roger Bowman!
