“I was 100% skeptical about this online program especially since I knew it all (or at least I thought I did.) I figured that I had been lifting on/off for 25+ years so what could some trainer do for me?

I could not have been more wrong.”

– Scott H.

About Rob

Rob recently received his Master’s Degree in Exercise Science from the University of Michigan, is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (National Strength and Conditioning Association), and a Certified Sport Nutritionist (International Society of Sports Nutrition).

Major street cred includes:

  • Advisory Board for Arnold Schwarzenegger
  • Co-Founder – Rumble Boxing
  • Trainer on the ABC show My Diet Is Better Than Yours (Premiered Jan. 2016)
  • Nike Trainer
  • Top 20 Fitness Experts Worth Following – Huffington Post
  • Top 50 Hottest Trainers in America – Shape Magazine
  • Top 100 Most Influential People in Health & Fitness – Greatist
  • Most Inspirational Fitness Accounts – BuzzFeed

“I think of Rob as the elite Delta Force of trainers. Highly skilled for any and all physical situations (including training feeble editor types) but smarter, cooler, and nimbler than your average gym warrior. He manages the rare trick of having enviable physical knowledge and expertise and being fiercely intelligent about the body, health, fitness, and nutrition.

He’s also intuitive, articulate, and incredibly positive, all of which I think are important and hard to find in one superhuman Delta Force individual. 

(Also, he’s funny, but that’s a bonus.)” 

– Jim Nelson, Previous Editor-In-Chief GQ Magazine

I’m new around these parts. How do I get started?

First of all, I’d suggest checking out the Strength Programs, Running and Race Prep Programs, or At-Home Training and reading a bit about your various options. Once you find a training program that aligns with your goals, save it to the home screen of your phone for easy access. When you go to the gym, one click and you’ve got your entire workout loaded and ready to conquer.

Do you have any options for At-Home Training?

Sure do! Quickie Circuits for those just getting started with exercise.
Classes for those who like to have a follow-along workout. 
Homebody by Bandana for those who want to incorporate progressive overload and get a bit more serious about their at-home weight training.

What’s the best In-Gym Training Program?

They’re all great although Project Recomp is 4 phases (24 weeks of training) which makes it a monster of a program and nice starting point.

If I’m an athlete or ex-athlete, what training program would you suggest?

Check out French Contrast Training. The program is based around improving your rate of force development which is at the foundation of athletic training.

Are there beginner, intermediate, and advanced programs?

The beginner programs are the At-Home training programs and classes. The intermediate and advanced programs are the In-Gym programs.

I want to level up my nutrition. Where should I start?

I’d suggest you start by reading The Performance Nutrition Handbook which is basically our Nutrition Fundamentals Course. Then I’d look over An Athlete’s Guides to Supplements to make sure your supplements are in order. From there, you can start to watch the Fueling Club presentations which go into much more detail on the various topics of interest.

I’m looking for private coaching. What are my options?

If you’re looking for world class nutrition coaching from a Registered Dietitian, check out Private Nutrition Counseling. If you’d like a Custom Training Program designed to your individual specs, then Custom Program Design: N of 1 is for you.
