My Story

Hey there, thanks for stopping by. My name is Rob, and a few years ago I realized losing weight and building lean-muscle wasn’t as easy as I remember it being when I was in my 20’s.

Like many of you, I grew up as an athlete. I can’t remember a time I wasn’t fit as kid. I played soccer, baseball, volleyball, wrestled and swam up until college. I would lifeguard during the summer and play sports all year. It was awesome!

Then real life started.

Rob's Before & After

After getting married in 2008 and struggling to carve out a career for myself as an actor/waiter/personal trainer, I started to notice that I wasn’t feeling or looking as good I used to. The real eye opening moment was when my wife snapped this picture of me while on our honeymoon in Hawaii. Despite all efforts to delete this picture, it somehow survived over the years. I keep it around now to remind me how far I’ve come.

In the picture on the left, I weighed 194 pounds. I was 31 years old and I hadn’t worked out consistently in who knows how long. I was depressed, over worked, and lacked any motivation. Sound familiar?

Over the last 7 years I’ve hacked my fitness by setting short term goals that would keep me active. I signed up for marathons, half-marathons, 5k & 10k races, Mud Runs, spartan races, triathlons, body building and men’s physique competitions. I figured out that if I set goals, my mind remembers what it was like when I was a younger athlete. My body had no choice but to come along for the ride.

Without going into too much detail, I dropped that extra 30 pounds of fat, learned how to eat to maintain a body fat percentage below 10 percent and I’m feeling better than I’ve felt since I was in my early twenties. In fact, I could honestly say, I don’t think I’ve ever felt better.

I would like to help you do what I’ve done by providing you with all the tools you’ll need to succeed.

The best way to get to jump in with both feet and get to know what I do is to subscribe to the Open Sky Fitness Podcast. On the show, I interview health and wellness experts from all over the world. We discuss weight lifting, endurance training, martial arts, cooking, low fat vs. low carb diets, paleo vs. vegan diets, and so much more. Our mission is to provide you with the information you need to help you drop that extra 20 or 30 pounds and start feeling the way you did 15 or 20 years ago. You might not think it’s possible, but I’m here to tell you, it is possible! You just have to believe in yourself and trust the process.


Along the way I will provide you with workout programs and templates, online coaching, nutritional guides, cookbooks and online group training.

I know you’re busy. I’m right there with you. However, unless you’re willing to start making your health a priority, you’ll never have the body you know you deserve.
