Dedan Rodriquez aka “Rod” has not only been a brand ambassador of SICFIT Round Rock as our 1st sponsored athlete who competes on an international level in the sport of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but he has literally watched our dream become the reality it is today. From the days that he and I shared an office testing equipment that supported our warfighters on the ground in various deployed environments and sharing with him my vision of owning a gym to fulfill a long-time dream to assisting him to be a more effective fighter in BJJ. Rod has the tremendous ability of being a fast learner with anything outside of his comfort zone. His BJJ career started as a fun way to improve his physical fitness and evolved into him becoming obsessed with improving and competing. He’s now a ranked athlete on the international scale and continues to show no signs of slowing down. Since he started implementing our programs into his training schedule, his fight team has noticed significant strength gains, improved flexibility, stamina and cardio endurance and has become even more of a leader amongst his team. Rod still serves in the Army National Guard as a Warrant Officer in the intelligence community and is preparing for another deployment later this year. This time as a civilian contractor supporting our war efforts on a strategic level.
Rod, thank you for all you do, both in and out of the gym. You have worked very hard to achieve so much. Can’t stop, won’t stop!
