A California native, Roger was raised in the sleepy little town of Simi Valley. Home to the Reagan Presidential Library and virtually endless outdoor spaces, it’s not hard to see how this young man found a career in fitness.
Baumann’s first brush with fitness came in his junior year of High School. He enrolled in the schools weight lifting class and before long he knew this was a path that would carry him into adulthood.
Roger attended Moorpark Community College with a focus in Exercise Science. During his time at Moorpark he was afforded the opportunity to take on an internship at EPIC Fitness, with owners Adam and Kaitlin Berezowsky. He recalls that in the first weeks of his internship he experienced both his worst and best days of his life! It was then that Adam Berezowsky told him, “I need to be uncomfortable to be comfortable.”
Fast forward and Roger earned his Associates Degree from Moorpark College in Exercise Science. Not content with just one degree or certification he has gone onto become a Certified Spartan Obstacle Specialist and Spartan SGX Level 1 Trainer. But wait there’s more. Baumann continues to garner greater education and is working toward earning multiple certifications from the prestigious NASM (National Academy of Sports Medicine) and ACE (American Council on Exercise). This young man has set his sights high and has EPIC Fitness to thank for his start.
Be sure to check the Class Schedule and mark your calendars so you can get into one of Roger’s classes. Whether it’s body composition changes or Spartan Training you are looking for, you won’t be disappointed with his workouts!
