Meet Coach Robin
Retired Military (US Army). I became a Master Fitness Trainer while serving in the military and followed suit with a personal training certification through American Council on Exercise (ACE). Having experienced military fitness training I realized the training was good. However, it only provided the necessary tools to pass the fitness tests and sustain the forces. There was not much information provided to help people with overall fitness and nutrition sustainment. Over 17 years experience between military and civilian fitness training. I truly believe people want to live healthier lives but do not know how to get started or lack a good support system to help them maintain it.
Approach to Training
My approach to fitness and health is one of a partnership with clients. I focus on cardio, strength training, core strength, flexibility, functional fitness, corrective exercise and nutrition as well as positive thinking and attitude. There are no quick fixes, only hard work, determination, and consistency. Fitness and healthy living is a lifestyle. I am a results oriented trainer and believe in the SMART principle when it comes to fitness and goal setting. “Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic, Timely.” I like all things fitness and enjoy working with clients of all levels. I have trained student athletes to Senior Fitness clients. It would be my pleasure to work with you.
