WICHITA — Pete Rohleder has been working out at Fit Physique Fitness Center since he was 12 and working there since he was 16. After spending half his life there, he says he was ready to have his own place.
This week, he's having a soft opening for his Pure Fitness Rx at 3460 N. Ridge Road.
"Fit Physique is a wonderful place ... but I needed to grow professionally," Rohleder says.
He got his master's degree in exercise science last year and says, "I wanted to be able to offer more services."
Rohleder calls himself an exercise physiologist.
"It allows me to be a little bit more in-depth and a little more comprehensive with my approach to health and fitness."
He says he can incorporate more physiological tools for better results.
"I can help develop programs that are much more efficient."
