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. And he doesn’t just talk; he listens — to the variables of your body, to you, responding smartly to varying goals and circumstances, and knowing exactly how to direct and inspire you.
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.)
