ROCKI MITCHELL

Lead Health & Wellness Facilitator

Rocki Mitchell headshot.jpg

My name is Rocki Mitchell, and I'd like to introduce myself. I own Bodyrokc Fitness and work as a personal trainer. I specialize in high-intensity interval training and strength training (HIIT). My passion is to assist people in manipulating their bodies through movement and achieving optimal wellness. I've always been active, with a background in dance, gymnastics, and a variety of sports. However, once I started college, I noticed that I was developing bad habits and that I was quickly running out of breath climbing those hills in Jefferson City; I wanted to change that. 

I was a Wellness major, so I started putting the disciplines and techniques I was learning to use, and the transformation was amazing.

After receiving my bachelor’s degree from Lincoln University, I began personal training in 2015. It began with training a couple of friends and progressed to me becoming NASM certified. Since then, I've been committed to understanding the most effective and efficient way to increase muscle mass and decrease body fat through training and nutrition. I can listen to your goals and develop customized programs based on them.

Many women have grown their glutes and gained confidence in their bodies by following my first fitness program, Bells & Buns. This program was created with the goal of strengthening the glute muscles and toning the lower body. We accomplish this through the use of bodyweight, free weights, and resistance bands.
