I grew up in Bridgeport, West Virginia where I graduated from Fairmont State University with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and Special Education. Throughout elementary, middle, and high school I played volleyball and softball and was always outside practicing my sport, shooting hoops, or working on the farm. In college, I would gather my friends a few days a week and we would work out in my apartment. Exercising has always been very important in my life and I believe it should be fun. After working out for years and teaching for 8, I decided to turn my love of fitness into a career. I am a vivid reader of Oxygen magazine and found an ad for ISSA (International Sports and Science Association). I figured if I am going to do it right, I will do it big. So I signed up for the Master Trainer Certification which includes, Personal Trainer Certification, Fitness Nutrition Certification, Fitness / Exercise Therapy Certification, Senior Fitness Certification, Youth Fitness Certification, and Strength and Conditioning Certification. After one more year of teaching, I resigned from teaching and now focus all my time to personal training and I love every moment of it! I enjoy each client as their are all unique to me. I tell everyone if you are going to exercise and eat right, it needs to be a lifestyle change, not a 6 month change. You must be in it to win it. What you give is what you get. No “body” is the same and I won’t train you the same. I work with each client on an individual basis. I will help take you to that next level. So let’s get to working on your fitness!

    When I first started with Robin, I'd never been with a trainer before. At our first session she took the time to not only find out what I could do, she also sat me down and talked to me about food. She's a trainer to get you fit and in a life style change. She plans for each of her clients and each workout is tailored to them. She will push you to push yourself. I've had a great experience with her (and great results). I would recommend Robin to anyone looking to get fit, get results and feel better about themselves.

    I agree with Donna. I'm 58 years young and worked out with trainers for more than 30 years. Robin has been one of the best I've worked with and I enjoy and look forward to our work outs. She is thorough, listens, assesses and understands exactly what I need. She does her research and is prepared and doesn't waste any time getting down to our workouts. When I first went to Robin, I had surgery on my left foot 6 months prior and had just graduated from a walker to a cane. I could barely stand up without losing my balance. My physical therapy sessions had gone from 3 days a week to 1 day a week and I was scared. Robin was my next step and took my fears away completely. Within a few weeks of training with Robin, I gave up my cane and started to regain my strength. After each session with Robin, I can see new definition in my muscles. She always takes me to the next level adn always comes up with something new. She gives me exercises that I never thought I could do. She says, 'oh yes you can' and we do it and move on to the next one. Thank you Robin for doing your homework.

    Over the last few years, I've trained with several different personal trainers. I've suffered muscle pulls, tears, and overuse injuries due to trainers that used a cookie cutter approach to training, and did not consider that they were dealing with a 50 year old couch potato. After two trainer-induced shoulder surgeries, I was pretty reluctant to try another trainer, but I also realized I needed some guidance to get back into an exercise routine.
    When Robin first consulted with me, I was amazed at how she actually listened to my concerns, and opened the door for ongoing two-way communication. She paces the exercises for my level of fitness, which has drastically improved over the last few months. When we first started, I was winded after 10 minutes on the treadmill, now it feels like I can go forever without stopping.
    I'm also significantly stronger, and have better balance. And I actually look forward to exercising! Robin has made a huge difference for me, and I recommend her whole-heartedly.
