Male fashion model Roger Frampton discusses how our current ways of measuring progress in fitness (weight, sets, reps, speed, distance) are flawed, and suggests an alternative measure.
Roger Frampton has been modelling for over a decade appearing in ad campaigns for Jean Paul Gaultier, Ralph Lauren & Aquascutum. With over 15 seasons of catwalks in Milan, New York, Paris & London Roger realised the importance of posture in exercise and created ‘The Frampton Method’. ‘The Frampton Method’ is a combination of bodyweight exercises based upon gymnastics, yoga and calisthenics with a pure focus on posture and technique. Roger has an education in Anatomy and Physiology, Functional Movement, Functional Performance and Functional Therapy. He also works alongside Ashtanga Yoga teachers and British Gymnastic coaches. Roger’s work has been published in The Sunday Times, Fashionisto, Attitude, Grazia and Esquire
