Founded in 2008, ROCKSOLID Programs came about as a response to a need for innovative, exciting fitness programs that would be honorable in all regards. That is to say,
•From the Music Perspective: The Lyrics couldn't’ just be the “clean” lyrics of an otherwise “explicit” song. But, The Song choice needed to be uplifting and, dare we say, God-honoring.
We understand these types are tracks are hard to come by in this day and age but with God all things are possible and, to date, He has blessed us with over 500 appropriate tracks!
•From the Fitness Perspective: The programs had to be results-focused offering options for all fitness levels. The programs had to take out the “churchy” and put in the athletic. The programs had to be "Take & Teach". Something that could be taught in a weekend. Completely repeatable, biomechanically sound, results-driven and fun. •From the business perspective: The implementation process had to be strategic and deliver results. We serve an organized God of perfect intention. He doesn’t guess and neither do we. We offer a step-by-step system that, when implemented correctly, will grow your ministry or business. This system has been tried and proven time and time again.
Backed by the degrees, certifications and over 50 years of combined experience; we bring you quality-controlled fitness products that take you and your team from ordinary to exceptional!
But there is more to ROCKSOLID Programs than that. This isn't just a fitness training program, and we aren't just here to bring you new moves and music a few times a year. This is a ministry. We have seen lives changed dramatically through this ministry. The stories we could tell would bring you to your knees in adoration of a King who chooses to use people - even "fitness people" - to do His perfect work. We are humbled to be chosen to do this work. We are looking for brave people who will stand with us at this critical hour to call our brothers and sisters in Christ out of complacency and onto the battlefield. Will you join us. Will you be empowered, be renewed, and choose, for such a time as this, to make a difference! Join the team!
Our mission is to partner with Fitness professionals, Church Sports & Recreation Departments and Fitness Participants in delivering biomechanically sound and results-driven fitness programs. Our goal is to glorify the Lord in all that we do so that He might draw all people unto Himself.
