Hi, I’m Coach Rodger!  I co-founded SWEAT Fitness – Stockton in 2010 with my spouse and best friend, Lakiesha but, you already know that about me, lol

Leaving out religion and politics; I’m a Christian who loves Jesus & Andrew Yang  2021 (NYC Mayor) and 2024/2028 (POTUS), here are the Top-10 things you may not know about me…




  1. I’m a unicycle rider

  3. I enjoy driving long distances
  4. I’m the middle son and eldest of my mom’s second set of children

  10. There are a minimum of 1,000 other exciting things you don’t know about me; but, I’m an open book and I love to share, lol



My wife Lakiesha and I celebrated our 25th anniversary in 2017.  The photos were taken in 1992 at our wedding and 2017 at our vow renewals.  It might sound like a cliché but our love for one another is stronger than it was when we first fell in love!  By the way, it was love at first sight; alright for me it was, lol.  See, I tried to warn you she was absolutely gorgeous!



We know true strength comes from building a strong core. We've chosen a unique mix of equipment that maximizes the use of your core in every functional way. We start with the RealRyder® ABF8 "unstationary" bikes that twist, turn and lean and have revolutionized indoor cycling from what was essentially a cardio workout, into a full body fitness program.

Our group Kangoo Jumps®, POUND® and Kettlebell classes also provide heart pounding, fat burning, and core centric workouts. Round it out with individual or small group personal training. Are you ready to try something new? Our body weight resistance workouts feature the TRX® Suspension Trainer and TRX® Rip Trainer. We also design challenging full-body, traditional weight training programs.

The owners and staff of SWEAT Cycling Studio and Personal Training are energetic and passionate about fitness. Each are required to be certified as indoor cycling, group exercise instructors and personal trainers. Many are also competitive athletes having competed or participated in century and metric-century rides, triathlons, open water swims, mud-runs, marathons, half-marathons, 5 & 10k's, and amateur figure & bodybuilding competitions. 

We walk-the-walk!

So, whether you are a seasoned runner, cyclist, triathlete or just enjoy a good indoor cycling workout, we have a program for you at SWEAT!
