Our History

On September 3, 2019, Ann Bodger took on the roll of Roser Robics instructor! Ann has been coming to Anna Maria Island and Roser Church since the 70s. She is originally from Bloomington, MN. Ann lives with her mother, Laura Bodger, who has been a homeowner on the Island since 1980. In Ann’s words…

“I started doing aerobics in the 80s and got back into it when I saw Roser Robics in the Church bulletin. Melissa, who initiated Roser Robics, said I’d be a great instructor. So I took her advice and started my online schooling. When the position opened up at Roser, I finished my schooling and passed my certification right away. I am BLESSED to live on AMI and to be given this opportunity at Roser Church! FAITH, FITNESS, FUN!”

At Roser Community Church, “we are ministering to the whole person”. In January 2016 Roser began offering Roser-Robics (Get Fit While You Sit) taught by Coach Melissa Merkle. Melissa’s inspiration came from a verse in the Bible, 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 that says: “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been purchased at a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body.” Our heartfelt thanks go to Melissa for pioneering this great program
