Meet Rod Middleton...

Rod Middleton’s background and experience comes from 25 years of playing basketball, coupled with five years of Strength Training Development and Conditioning as a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine(NASM)

As a Basketball Player, Rod earned a four year scholarship to the University at Buffalo under head coach Reggie Witherspoon.  It was through this experience where he was able to fine-tune his skills, ultimately affording him the opportunity to play professionally overseas for four years.  Rod was fortunate to play one year in France, Germany and two years in England for the Worcester Wolves.

After his freshman and sophomore years at the University at Buffalo, Rod underwent two back surgeries.  These injuries forever shaped his life and taught him the importance of taking care of his body.  Rod was able to recognize the value in his injury which guided him toward his chosen career.  Once his basketball career came to an end, Rod knew exactly what it was he wanted to do.  He decided to enroll in the National Academy of Sports Medicine training program where he would later become a Certified Personal Trainer.  This was his opportunity to offer support to many athletes in order to excel in an area that is often overlooked, Strength Training Development and Conditioning.

Rod knew that having experienced the injuries he did along with gaining the knowledge that came along with rehabilitation of his  injuries, he could safely help support athletes and individuals in reaching their full potential not only as an athlete but also preparing them for life as well.
