Doug just relocated to NH from South Florida where he was the Fitness Director for Broken Sound Club, one of the top Country Clubs in the nation and headed up their fitness department with over 80 employees. He was the direct liaison between the Fitness Department and their on site Physical Therapy Department under Boca Regional Hospital. Doug’s willingness to succeed and create a direct medical fitness program to members helped earn Broken Sound “Fitness Facility of the Year” for the entire state of FL for the 2012 calendar year.
Doug graduated from the prestigious Fitness Institute International in 2010 with concentrations on Post Rehab and Kinesiology. The Fitness Institute is considered the premiere Exercise Science Trade School and deemed the most legally defensible certification in the country. Doug also obtained the NSCA-CPT certification as well as the Titleist Performance Institute’s (TPI) Level 1 & Level 2 Golf Fitness Certifications under Gray Cook and Tom House. He also has certifications in TRX, a Post Rehab Specialist, a Functional Training Specialist, a Strength & Conditioning Specialist, a Nutritional Specialist and a Fitness Testing Specialist. He is currently pursuing the FMS certification and creating a National certification for Tennis Biomechanics.
Doug also worked for HSS Spine and Sport in Jupiter, FL under spine specialist Dr. Michael Reed, DPT for 3 years as their head Exercise Specialist. He worked in conjunction with therapists and patients during discharge and created medically based programs for continued care and at home programs. Doug also created “D.R. Performance Group” in 2015, a medically based Fitness Business to bridge the gap between Physical Therapy, Chiropractic, Orthopedic and Sport Medicine care.

"I highly recommend Doug Rotondi as a trainer (if you can manage to obtain a slot on his nearly 95% filled schedule). I have worked out with him since the beginning of 2017 on a 3 times per week basis. He is amazingly effective, personable, considerate and honest which are all rare in unison among the trainers that I have hired around the nation. I have witnessed amazing progress in terms of strength, endurance and physical body dimensions. Mentally I feel great and look forward to my next workout. And the best part about the workout is that every day is totally different. I bore easily but never with Doug. Finally, he has also been instrumental in helping me ease some muscular issues. If you are seeking a mature, amazingly effective, kind and considerate, smart, highly experienced and trained physical trainer who knows the body like a physical therapist, then choose Doug Rotondi. You will not find a better trainer at his value in our corner of New England." - Marco Protano - August 2017
"Doug is fantastic--he knows his stuff, he supports me fully in my development, and his demeanor is great. I have been seeing Doug once a week for the past 2 months, and I am so pleased with the results! I am the strongest I have ever been in my life. (I have always been active: hiking, yoga, jogging, OTF, and biking are all activities in which I have partaken, but I have mostly been a thin, but not overly muscular, person.) Now, at 35, I have an athletic physique equal to that of a twenty-something-year-old. :)
I think what delights me most about Doug is his personality. We share a similar sense of humor, so he has me laughing pretty hard during our sessions. He is a WYSIWYG: what you see is what you get. Doug explicitly states that he is nonjudgmental, and he truly is. This is incredibly important to me, as I have deep insecurities about my body. I feel comfortable and safe in the space we share.
Thanks, Doug!" - Nicole Souza - August 2017
"Doug is amazing! I asked my physical therapist to recommend a trainer that could help train me to improve my osteoporosis and that could work with my family as a whole, my husband, 4 kids (ages 14, 12, 10 and 8) and myself, to weight train and get my kids interested in self improvement instead of video games. Doug teaches, guides and encourages my children appropriately for their ages and developmental stages. He listens to them and motivates them individually with a smile and positive attitude always. My husband and I feel so healthy and get an amazing workout followed with advice and suggestions to eat healthy too! Doug never pushes or forces, just always helps us believe in ourselves and set achievable goals!" - The Guttman Family (Steve, Helena, Niel, Faith, Seth & Lexi) - August 2017
"Working with Doug is a great privilege. His knowledge and experience are readily apparent, and are matched by his compassion and good humor. Doug creates a challenging program while keeping your health and safety a top priority. Never will you be thrown past your limits for the sake of ego - Doug is not one for that foolery. He creates an interactive environment, is easily approachable with questions, and is consistent and communicative. I feel that choosing Doug as a personal trainer is choosing a partner in your fitness journey. His expertise and kindness make him an exceptional trainer - one who is sincerely invested in your success."

Doug is an exceptional personal trainer. I have used many trainers and Doug has been the best. He was in charge of our Country Club's gym in Boca Raton and everyone wanted to use Doug as their trainer. His knowledge of how to exercise and not injure yourself is above and beyond. Florida will miss him.

Doug Rotondi was the Director of Fitness at Broken Sound Club in Boca Raton Florida. Broken Sound is a member owned community with over 1500 households. Doug was the best thing that ever happened to fitness at Broken Sound, through his personal approach, the number of members who used the facility increased more than 5 fold. Doug was always on the floor greeting members. He was always watchful to insure members used the equipment correctly. I personally used Doug as my trainer. He is totally qualified and motivational as a trainer, he pushed me to do more than I thought I could do. I was disappointed to see Doug leave but I wish him the best. He deserves it.
Charlie H. on October 26, 2015
I worked with Doug for about a year and I can honestly say he not only is an unbelievable trainer, but one of the nicest and most genuine people I have ever met. It is an honor to be trained by Doug and to have him in your life. Great guy!
