    Wisconsin-based band Bon Iver will appear in a fitness DVD. Like modern-day Jane Fondas.

    According to The Associated Press, personal trainer Jeff Rogers met singer, songwriter and frontman Justin Vernon several years ago while playing basketball at an Eau Claire YMCA.

    Rogers approached the singer since something didn't appear quite right. He then discovered Vernon was suffering from sciatica.

    Rogers offered to show Vernon workouts to strengthen his lower back and eventually the entire band joined in, taking Rogers' workouts on tour! Touring is rough on the body, so this was beneficial for everyone in the band, thanks to a chance meeting.

    Rogers, who trains clients in Chippewa Valley, will put out the On the Road DVD, which features the band and one of their songs.

    Would you check out this DVD?
