Rod Cortizo – Founder/ Owner
After venturing into the world of physical therapy as a young student, Rod found that many common injuries and health problems could be prevented with proper muscular strength training. That’s where his passion for fitness began.
By popular demand, he created Rodsquad in 2005, when many of his clients were having massive success with his body transformation challenges. Many of those clients experienced life-changing results and still participate in Rodsquad today.
A graduate of Fitness Institute International, he received his CPT-S (Certified Personal Trainer Specialist), and went on to get certified by NSCA(National Strength and Conditioning Association), ACSM(American College of Sports Medicine) and ACE(American Council on Exercise).
