Ann Arbor Michigan, March 5, 2002

Roger Inc., an Ann Arbor based provider of software to fitness professionals and enthusiasts, announces two new partnerships with UM Department of Recreational Sports and Ypsilanti High School Athletic Department. 

PushXL, Roger Inc.’s flagship product is now installed at Ypsilanti High School.  The software will allow Ypsilanti High School football coaches to plan and monitor the strength and conditioning workouts of their student athletes. 

Roger Inc. has also signed a Letter Of Intent with the University of Michigan’s Department of Recreational Sports. Recreational Sports personal trainers will use PushXL to perform fitness assessments as well as plan and monitor the progress of their clients.

“Both of these installations take advantage of our ability to custom tailor PushXL”, says John Gary, President of Roger Inc. 

“We’re building an administrative module based on Ypsilanti High’s requirements, to allow the coaches to more easily manage all of their athletes.  We’re adding fitness assessment modules to PushXL based on Recreational Sports’ requirements, to support the PAR-Q and Health History questionnaires as well as several fitness assessment and body composition modules,” Gary adds.
