About

Hi, my name is Rob.

Weighted pullups

I’m a husband and a dad to three beautiful young kids.

For the last 6 years I’ve been helping other dads to:

  • Lose fat.
  • Gain muscle.
  • Transform their bodies.
  • Extend their lives and improve their life quality.
  • Avoid disease associated with poor health.
  • Gain the strength and energy to keep up with their kids.
  • Set a healthy example for their whole family to aspire to.

These are pretty much exactly my own goals.

I want to stay lean and strong as I get older, be around until my grandkids are adults, and teach my kids to do pull-ups…

(instead of them attaching themselves to me for added weight as in the picture above!).

“Who Is Rob and Why Should I Listen to Him?”

I’ve been in your position.

I worked a corporate job for 10+ years (digital advertising & media) juggling fitness with my busy dad lifestyle and responsibilities.

Getting or staying in shape is HARD when you’ve got a busy job, you run your own business, you have kids, a wife and a social life.

Health and fitness all too often get sacrificed when guys get to this stage in life…

Fast forward 5-10 years and they regret it, big time.

Here’s a bit about my story:

In 2018, I became a dad

Best thing ever.

But I also had to figure out how to at least maintain the fitness results I had gotten over the previous 5 years, whilst navigating the challenges that came with my responsibilities:

  • Working full time.
  • Getting awful sleep.
  • Wanting to see my wife and kids.
  • Feeling guilty about taking time out for myself.

I really struggled at first.

I thought I was going to have to give up on fitness.

My old routine just didn’t work with my new life.

But I was determined to find a way.

So I got to reading through some books & studies.

The goal?

Figure out how to design a routine that would maintain all of my muscle and strength with the lowest possible demand on my time.

I ended up having to make some hard decisions and sacrifices, but I slashed my gym time by 75% and crossed my fingers.

After 6 months running with my new routine I realised I’d never go back to my old routine that saw me in the gym for 5 hours per week.

I had done it.

I could confidently say I was getting the same or better results than before whilst spending a maximum of 90 minutes per week in the gym.

I got leaner than I’d ever managed before, whilst maintaining all of my strength…

…with a 6 month old baby at home who slept really badly.

I was starting to build an online presence and I needed some professional pictures, so I got into photoshoot condition.

This picture was taken when my son was 6 months old and I had been getting 4-5 hours of broken sleep per night since he was born:

After that, I wanted to gain some more muscle and have been consistently adding strength ever since (whilst still only spending about 60-90 minutes per week working out).

In the meantime, I’ve been blessed with two more kids, started a successful business, left the 9-5 world and gotten into photoshoot shape several times (despite “not having time”):

And I’ve spent the past several years helping hundreds of men to do the same.

So many men give up on fitness when they become dads.

I want to show you that you don’t have to.

There’s a list as long as your arm for why you NEED to train and eat right, now more than ever:

  • You need to set a healthy example for your kids to give them the best start possible and set them up for a life of good health.
  • You need to reduce your risk of serious health complications and diseases so you can be around for as long as possible for your kids and future grandkids.
  • You need to maintain muscle as you age to keep your life quality high and reduce your risk of early death.
  • You need to fight against age related muscle loss.
  • You need to keep up with your kids as they grow and continue to show them a thing or two!
