I am one of Rob’s biggest fans! There are so many things that make Rob a great coach. Just to name a few he is incredibly knowledgeable (about A LOT of stuff), his attention to detail and observation, his incredible patience when he is reviewing each movement, his persistent cheerleading. But the thing that makes Rob such a remarkable coach is that no matter how much you think you can’t do something, Rob knows you can.
I’m not into gyms. I like to be active, but hate “working out.” That said, Rob’s creativity and energy made it fun! And I loved the results, I feel healthier and much stronger, and the most important part for me…it was actually fun!
After being inspired by several life changing experiences, I began searching for a training option to lose weight. At the age of 56, and having physically worked for 38 years I had been struggling with shoulder pain and lower back problems. I spent a few months researching gyms in the area, even visiting them to speak with the owners and trainers. I still maintain a very physical work schedule, and made sure to express my concern with getting hurt or being unable to work. Rob was the only trainer to take the time to understand my concern, educate me in the process, and give me an idea of what to expect. He reviewed my past history (daily activity rate, past injuries, and overall general health) to help me set a realistic goal for my weight loss. Rob crafted a program for me, and he coached me at my own pace. Rob’s knowledge, passion, and commitment to making sure that form and execution of the movements is more important than the amount of weight used, has enabled me to work hard without the fear of injury. In just 5 months under Rob’s supervision, I have lost 30 pounds, regained total movement in my shoulder and I no longer suffer from lower back pain. My story is not unique, as I have seen the results he has had with other people. However, without Rob and his gym, I would not be where I am today. I believe in Rob’s passion and commitment, and am grateful for the knowledge he has bestowed upon me.
