We’re on a mission to recognize the fitness instructors who don’t just look great on Instagram—but actually inspire us to be better. So together with Reebok, we asked you to nominate trainers for the first-ever America’s Most Inspiring Trainer title. After nearly 5,000 entries, we’ve narrowed down the pool to 12 amazing finalists—and now it’s time for you to choose a winner! Learn more about Harry Rosedale below, and cast your vote by December 23. 

Harry Rosedale, Los Angeles, California

Founder of Rosedale Fitness, LLC and Instructor at Barry’s Bootcamp

His Mantra

“There’s no failure, as long as you keep trying.”

His Power Jams

“Pump Up the Jam” – Techtronic (Mark Stereo Remix)

His Story

“I was an overweight child. Growing up as a gay kid and knowing that I didn’t fit in, I looked to food to help ease the loneliness I felt,” Rosedale remembers. “When I was in junior high school, I made a conscious effort to exercise, eat better, and lose weight. My parents signed me up at a gym and so began a different, more self-loving journey.”

But there have been some bumps in the road, like the year-and-a-half period when Rosedale was a strict vegan and trained for two half marathons and a full marathon. Though he wanted to fully embrace his lifestyle choice, he also realized that his diet couldn’t fully sustain his rigorous training.

“My hair was falling out, I was exhausted. Eventually, I added more calories to my diet and realized the importance of eating sufficient protein, carbs, and fats. Food is fuel!”

His Inspiring Mission

“To inspire others to love themselves, and empower them to take control of their health goals,” Rosedale says. “I think it’s particularly important to reach out to overweight youth and adults struggling with this issue. When people learn to love themselves on the inside, they are more equipped to take control of themselves on the outside!”

The winner of America’s Most Inspiring Trainer will score an exclusive one-year contract with Reebok and major coverage on Well+Good. Cast your vote now!
