After graduating from Thiel College with a B.S in Biology, Rocklend has spent over 10 years working as a dual-credentialed Physical Therapist Assistant and strength and conditioning specialist to help others lead a healthier lifestyle.
Rocklend has gained unique specializations regarding the topics of health promotion, strength and conditioning, corrective exercise, and recovery-based programming.
Rocklend's first introduction to research and writing came from an opportunity to co-author an anatomic study of the shoulder blade in 2017. This later led to his pursuit for higher level education of a Ph. D. in Health and Human Performance to further develop his skills as a researcher.
Prior to completing his Ph.D, Rocklend obtained his Masters in Exercise Science that focused on health promotion and rehabilitation science programming. Rocklend works to blend his unique background and knowledge obtained to share his passion of health.
