Who would have guessed that Rob’s initial quest for abs would land him on the web as a Men’s Fitness.com personality! Not him! He started his fitness journey in 2010 just trying to get that “fitness model” body, not actually become a fitness model. But, ya know what they say… when you make plans…God laughs!
How It Happened….
This past June, myself and my daughter were preparing for the Fit Sciences Championships. It was her first competition so I decided to do it with her. When I arrived at registration, I found out that I had actually signed Rob up too! Well- needless to say, 24 hours isn’t a whole lot of notice to give a guy who’s going to be stepping on stage in not much more than a square-cut speedo-ish swimsuit! But, he’s a trooper and agreed to do the show for fun. Now that he’s uncovered the secrets to staying fit year-round, it’s not much of a stretch for him to get “stage ready”.
So, less than 24 hours after agreeing to step on stage, he was tanned and his name was called by the announcer. After he got off the stage, he was approached by Men’s Fitness Magazine to do a “test shoot” the next day.
Well, apparently they loved his over the top, fun and outgoing personality as they decided to give him a “video assignment”. Two-weeks later we were shooting his first workout video in South Beach!
So- there it is. You just NEVER know what’s going to happen when you do something outstanding!
