About Me

I hold a B.S. degree in Exercise Science from the University of Delaware, Certifications from the National Strength Conditioning Association as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and the National Academy of Sports Medicine as a Certified Personal Trainer (NASM-CPT).  My career began 26 years ago at Cardio-Fitness Corporation and The American Express Corporate Fitness Program training high-level executives.  I have since developed a private fitness practice with a strong and longstanding clientele training people across all age categories and industries, helping them achieve their health and fitness goals.

Along the way, I achieved personal successes as a competitive body builder (Mr. Delaware) and an endurance athlete (2 time Ironman Triathlete finisher, 10 time Marathon finisher, Category 3 Competitive Cyclist).  Currently, my fitness goals are to stay healthy for my two sons and to teach them the importance of exercise and wellness.

I view myself as a progressive trainer, someone not satisfied with the status quo. Rather, I am committed to on-going training in the newest approaches to health and fitness with some of the industry’s leading edge people including: Paul Chek, Juan Carlos Santana, and Phil Maffetone to name a few.

“The first question Rob asked was what I wanted from this. I didn’t have the vocabulary then to answer, but he took a quick measurement of what I needed and wanted and-even if I couldn’t describe it- proceeded to design a program that was good for me and did the things he thought I needed. It’s still like that. It’s a combination of him giving you a little of what you say you want and a lot of what he thinks you need. He makes it easy for you. He functions a little bit like a body shrink.”
Adam Moss, Editor New York magazine
“I began working out with Rob about 12 years ago….I was doing the workouts and the diet thing but Rob introduced me to something I had never before considered, he asked me about my commitment. Up until this point I had weight goals, but, what was my commitment? With Rob’s support I came up with something that excited me more than any weight goal ever did – I made health and wellness my commitment. This was something I could see beyond next week or next month … this was something I could see as a lifelong commitment. This decision changed my attitude and inspires me to make it to the gym and be fully engaged in my workouts.”
Donna Marie, President, DMF Communications
“Rob listens. He looks. He has an aesthetic eye for where one’s body should be ideally. He also pays attention to how you live and who you are. I have a crazy travel schedule and he’s really good about creating a workout that suits my lifestyle. If I’m coming off a 14 hour time change, he’ll have me more warm-up and fewer sets. I’m one of those people who think that anything worth doing is worth overdoing. Rob watches out for that. He keeps an eye on the stress and, because he’s really, really patient, he ends up inspiring you.”
