Rob, you have achieved some amazing results with your body building. What is your driving force behind this?
From a young age I have always competed at a high level. I was a national level sprinter and played football at professional clubs all through my youth.
Bodybuilding was the next step for me and now 20 years into it I wanted to reach the highest accolades possible for natural bodybuilding.
I continue to want to do better because the more I learn in bodybuilding the more I find out there is to know.
Who are your biggest inspirations and why?
My biggest inspiration was the legend himself Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Not only from his achievements in bodybuilding but from his drive for business and other aspects with career and self-development.
What advice would you give a PT/coach on how they can motivate their clients and help them achieve their results?
Helping your clients to stay motivated - You have to lead from the front. I would never ask a client to do something exercise or nutrition based that I wouldn’t be prepared to do myself.
It’s important that you adhere to your own fitness goals and nutrition so that you are always an example of how to achieve your goals.
Helping your clients achieve their results - You always have to give constructive criticism and always find the positives on your clients own personal fitness journey.
