Textual Conversation – Roger Frampton

Happy New Year ! Welcome to 2018 and here’s to this year being even bigger and better than the one we left behind. Thanks for sticking with us and we promise you, this will be our best year yet.

With this in mind, we are at a time for contemplating self improvement, self betterment, mindfulness, renewing one’s gym membership and throwing out all the uneaten Quality Street, After Eights, yes and even, the Terry’s Chocolate Orange. Everyone knows Health and Fitness is the new Rock and Roll, yeah that’s right, yeah ?

ROGER FRAMPTON has been an international model for over a decade, appearing in campaigns for the likes of JEAN PAUL GAULTIER, RALPH LAUREN, ORLEBAR BROWN and AQUASCUTUM plus walked in catwalk shows for international luxury brands including DOLCE & GABBANA, ALEXANDER MCQUEEN, YVES SAINT LAURENT, MISSONI, VIVIENNE WESTWOOD and EMPORIO ARMANI. On top of all this he has over the years featured in some of the world’s highly regarded style publications including ARENA HOMME +, FANTASTIC MAN, L’OFFICIEL HOMMES and GQ.

Now after over 15 seasons of catwalks in Milan, New York, Paris and London, Roger realised the importance of consciousness in movement and created THE FRAMPTON METHOD, a combination of bodyweight exercises mixing aspects of gymnastics and yoga, but with the utilisation of consciousness. His training technique has been featured all over the media in The Sunday Times, Grazia, Esquire, Men’s Health and Elle Magazine and he has many private clients as well as maintaining an international career in fashion.

Frampton recently stood on the TED stage for his talk, Why Sitting Down Destroys You in which he talks about his refreshing approach to movement and mobility. The video has clocked an impressive 1.8 million views to date.

His first book THE FLEXIBLE BODY was recently released by Pavillion, giving readers conscious movement solutions which they can do at home and is available to order on Amazon now.
