Shaun Chambers is the Founder and CEO of BodyRoc. Named America’s Most Inspiring Trainer Sponsored by Well + Good and Reebok and the 2015 recipient of the 100 Men of Color award, Shaun’s passion for sports and music during his collegiate football career at Southern Connecticut State University lead him towards a career in the music industry. In 2006, he moved to New York City and was signed as a songwriter to Primary Wave Music Publishing under Sony BMG, working with artists such as Jennifer Hudson, P. Diddy, 50 Cent, Nicole Scherzinger, Jordan Knight and many others. Fully immersed in the entertainment world, Shaun never let go of the athletic mindset that gave him the drive and indomitable spirit it took to make it in the big apple. Since many of the artists he shared the studio with inquired about diet and fitness due to his own dedication to the lifestyle, he obtained his certification in personal training to inspire many others to achieve their health and fitness goals.
After over 10 years as a certified personal trainer and published songwriter, Shaun moved back to his hometown of Harford, CT to establish his own fitness brand – An intense circuit-style interval workout with the atmosphere of a dance club; BodyRoc FitLab. Established in 2015, BodyRoc FitLab has improved the lives of hundreds through its innovative group personal training program. Since opening its doors, the young company has won “Best Place to Workout” and “Best Gym” by Hartford Magazine 3 years in a row.
Throughout his career, Shaun has demonstrated a deep passion for the communities he serves and is always looking for opportunities to give back. Most recently, Shaun worked in partnership with the Hartford Yard Goats to pilot a Youth Fitness Program working with inner city children. Shaun received his Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from Eastern Connecticut State University and his Master of Business Administration from the University of Phoenix.
