Robs Approach to Training
“I like to make sessions fun using game type situations to train in or set challenges during the session these things always make things interesting. I like to vary each work out so no 2 workouts are the same? This will help keep your body guessing what it’s going to do and it helps make each work out interesting so you don’t get into that boredom stage of training. I also like to make training sessions that will help people in their day to day lives using big motions or motions we most commonly use in the day to help us get fitter not only in a gym environment but as a whole.”
