Hi, I’m Roc Shabazz, IFBB Pro Champion, and 2x Mr. Olympia Bodybuilding competitor.

I know a thing or two about commitment and finishing. Throughout my career, I’ve never finished outside of the top 5 more than 5 times.

Bodybuilding is more than big muscles; it’s about patience, consistency, dedication, and hard work.

Roc Starzz Training was created to bring out the STARZZ within you so you can shine even brighter. We all have STARZZ, but we often don’t feel or see them because life starts the rollercoaster, and we jump on for fear of missing out.

It’s okay, you're not alone. My awesome team and I will be here to get you off the rollercoaster and set up a fail-safe workout that will align your mind with your body, keep you safe and uninjured, teach you how to navigate what you eat and drink, and allow you to take control of your LIFE.

You might ask HOW? Well, with my 32 years of experience in the fitness industry, I’ve had the pleasure of training some of the top NFL & NBA Athletes, CEOs, Entrepreneurs, and regular folks doing extraordinary things. Here are a few you may or may not know, but the point is they come from every walk of life and share one thing in common:

Roc Starzz Training got them the RESULTS they desired.

SHAQUILLE O'NEAL, NBA HALL OF FAME LEGEND, 4x NBA CHAMPION, 3x FINALS MVP, and one of the busiest and most successful BUSINESSMEN in the world.






THE WORK: My workouts begin by conditioning your body biomechanically to perform the desired movements, making your ligaments and muscles stronger, so you can burn fat while retaining muscle and even gaining some along the way. In our 6-day-a-week plan, you train your entire body twice a week, gradually increasing weight, reps, and intensity. Each time you train a body part with the same exercise and weight, we increase your repetitions for the next time.

- Week 1 Workout 1: 10 reps for 5 sets
- Week 1 Workout 2: 12 reps for 5 sets
- Week 2 Workout 1: 15 reps for 5 sets
- Week 2 Workout 2: 20 reps for 5 sets
- Week 3 Workout 1: 25 reps for 5 sets
- Week 3 Workout 2: 10 reps for 10 sets
- Week 4 Workout 1: 12 reps for 10 sets
- Week 4 Workout 2: 15 reps for 10 sets

Patience will reveal your increased strength, mastery of movements, and readiness to tackle anything you need to do.

It also helps you adjust to your new way of eating.

Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to offer you the greatest gift of life HEALTH and The Body you Desire.

"SEE YOU ON THE OTHER SIDE" To form a habit, you must first stick to a routine.

You don't achieve results by focusing on the results themselves.

You get results by focusing on the actions that lead to those results.

If you're on your fitness journey, those actions need to align with your desired outcome.

There's only ONE way to get what you want, and that is to get started.

I have the blueprint, and all you need to do is follow me. Let's execute TOGETHER.
