Like many other things, Bandana Training has continued to grow and evolve over the past couple years.
While I remain proud of the work I’ve done as a young, smart-assy trainer living and writing in New York City, I’ve developed as a coach and so too has this tiny little brand that I started in 2012. Perhaps it was filming a TV show. Perhaps it was founding and developing a group fitness gym called Rumble Boxing. Most definitely it was falling in love and getting married. And truthfully, it was all of it. Life changes us and that’s a beautiful thing.
And so things around here are different.
👩🏽🔬🥦 The most notable difference is that I get to work hand-in-hand with my wife Mel – who happens to be an incredibly kind and patient Dietitian and handles all of the nutrition info and education.
🤨 Together we are collectively more interested in discussing the nuances of training and nutrition and less interested in defending a singular point of view.
🏘 We’re more interested in building a community of like-minded fitness enthusiast and less interested trying to become “influencers” (uck.)
🔍 We’re more interested in being transparent about our evolving relationship with health, fitness, and nutrition and less interested in trying to portray a glossy highlight reel.
📹 We’re offering a lot more video content and an opportunity for you to support us so the website can remain viable.
❤️ We still have major problems with diet culture and find all the online bickering tiresome. We’re here to have a good time. We’re here to share our world, our love, and our joy with anyone interested in partaking and we invite you to do the same.
We do ask you to be thoughtful and kind to each other. We ask that you join us with an open mind so together we might challenge anything that isn’t working for us.
We’re here to grow. We’re here to share. And we’d like to invite you into our lives.
Which is our long-winded way of saying…welcome to the Bandana Training Club.
Love & muscles,
Rob & Mel
