~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Tonight’s guest is Major General Michael Rochelle

Major General Michael Rochelle is the former G-1 of the United States Army; it’s Chief Human Capital Officer (CHCO). Perhaps more than any officer since LTG Timothy J. Maude, the G-1, and senior-most officer we lost in the attacks of September 11th, LTG Mike Rochelle was the most well qualified Army office to fill that vital post.
After serving as the Special Assistant to the late LTG Tim Maude in 2000, General Rochelle assumed the role of Commanding General of the US Army Soldier Support Institute at Fort Jackson, South Carolina. There he oversaw the development of human resource doctrine for the active, Guard and Army Reserve in support of the total Army.
Approximately 100 days after the attacks of September 11th, he assumed command of US Army Recruiting Command for an All-Volunteer Army soon to be engaged simultaneously in two wars (Afghanistan and Iraq).
In 2006, the senior leadership of the United States Army selected LTG Mike Rochelle as the G-1, Chief Human Capital Officer for the United States Army at war. He retired from that position in 2009.
Major General Rochelle now heads MDR Strategies, LLC (the strategic human capital consulting company he co-founded with his wife of over 40 years). In addition to offering strategic human capital consulting services to public and private clients, General Rochelle also operates a thriving executive coaching practice headquartered in Northern Virginia. Coincidentally, I happen to know that his executive coaching practice provides the spark that ignites the spark in my friend Mike Rochelle’s eye.
Yes! Since assuming command of USAREC, in January 2002, at Fort Knox, Kentucky, Mike Rochelle, his lovely wife Grace, my wife Patty and I have been the closest of friends!
Join me in welcoming Major General Michael Rochelle, as our guest this evening.

Q: Do these children pose a health risk?

When children come into the Department of Health and Human Services program, they are given a well-child exam and given all needed childhood vaccinations to protect against communicable diseases. They are also screened for tuberculosis, and receive a mental health exam. If children are determined to have any communicable disease or have been exposed to a communicable disease, they are placed in a program or facility that has the capacity to quarantine. If they have mental health problems, they are similarly placed in a specialized facility to meet their needs and not in a temporary shelter.

Tonight’s guest is Cindy Lane Ross

Websites:   www.bodiesbycindy.com,   www.fitpluswear.comwww.fattofitwithcindylaneross.com

Book:  Body Type Blueprint

Cindy motivates audiences from all age levels and genders by taking the discipline and determination she learned playing tennis at the Worlds’ most prestigious tennis academy and then on to turning pro, facing illness at an early age, gaining over 100 lbs, coping with death, and then regaining control of her life, all of this by self-MOTIVATION!

Questions (and answers!) for Radio Interview:

  • How did you get started into fitness?

My love of fitness came through years of playing tennis, moving to a tennis academy at a very young age, turning pro at 17 and then finished out my career in college.  I started having signs of what they thought was carpal tunnel syndrome and then 3 years later I was diagnosed as having Rheumatoid Arthritis.   After 22 surgeries over a 12 year span and a 110 pound weight gain in 2006, losing my mom to Scleroderma and my brother to Type 1 Diabetes,  I decided I wanted to help people change their life!

  • You are the owner of Bodies By Cindy, what is your clientele and what all programs do you offer?

My niche is training people with ailments- we have people with arthritis, diabetes, cancer, heart disease, paraplegics, amputees.  My passion is to help people get a good quality of life back.

  • How do you manage your Rheumatoid Arthritis?

I manage my arthritis with the right medication Humira (adalimumab), a clean eating diet, and exercise.  I’m in remission on medication if that makes sense.

  • What made you want to design a clothing line?

My quality of life wasn’t so good for many years because my joints hurt.  So I felt there was a need for compression clothing, warms the joints and gives stability.  My partner and I also created a sweat proof water proof pocket for your smart phone made inside of workout wear.

www.fitpluswear.com

  • Tell me about the two TV shows that you do weekly?

I have been on air for 3 years now.   I do a In The Kitchen with Bodies By Cindy show and a Get Fit with Cindy Lane Ross.  Living in the south, education and health and nutrition is key.. we are one of the heaviest states in the country. I want to help make the change through educating people.

  • Tell me about your most recent website you launched, www.cindylaneross.com, what services will you be offering worldwide?

So excited we actually just went live! I travel around the world and people are always saying they wish they lived near me so I can train them.  I have developed a program called FAT TO FIT and it’s a one stop shop for all your fitness needs including a detailed meal plan, a personal workout plan, unlimited guidance and lots of motivation. My online training program is for all fitness levels and can be done in the convenience of your home, the gym, the office, and even on VACATION.

  • What is one piece of advice you would offer to our listeners that are looking to get healthier?

One of my favorite quotes is “Live a Purpose Driven Life” You have to figure out what motivates you and be the best possible version of yourself! Go out and live each day to the fullest!

  • You just recently opened a new fitness facility- Bodies By Cindy Health & Fitness Center

Our mission is to inspire you to have a better quality of life and to help you achieve enough energy to enjoy the rest of the days of your life.

  • You just published a new book, Fat to Fit with Cindy Lane Ross

This book will become your kitchen bible. Has lots of cooking tips, nutrition information and lots of clean eating.

  • What keeps you motivated to live a healthy life?
  • Are you able to help all fitness levels?
We cater to all fitness levels.
  • Tell us about your national blog www.fattofitwithcindylaneross.com and the kind of information you throw out to the public each week- Motivational Mondays, Total Body Tuesday.
