Persevera is pleased to welcome Roger Summerville as a Guest Trainer.
Roger began his personal training career in 1989. He previously served as Head Trainer at the Personal Training Institute in Huntington and as Facility Manager at the Institute’s Syosset location. Roger currently trains his clientele at Evolve Exercise in Bellmore along with running his own on-site personal training practice. Roger’s Guest Trainer position at Persevera is his first opportunity to work with clients in New York City.
Personal training naturally prioritizes physical progress. Through his 28 years of experience, Roger has witnessed how exercise intensity must be adequate to stimulate lean muscle growth, and that recovery must be adequate to foster it—findings with which we at Persevera strongly agree! But Roger also takes a broader, more holistic approach to health and wellness. He believes that protocols that exclude the body/mind/spirit relationship are grossly incomplete, and endeavors to impart a sense of optimism, excitement and energy during training sessions with his clients.
Roger earned a bachelor's degree in business and economics from the State University of New York, where he also took numerous courses in nutrition and science.
Roger loves the kitchen, and not just for eating. He is an accomplished chef and baker, and strives to prepare meals that are not only nutritious, but also delicious. Feel free to ask him for his favorite healthy recipes at your next training session!
