4 Easy Steps to Quit Junk Food

May 13, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

 
If only junk food didn’t taste so good, then it would be easier to resist. The reason for its craveable flavor is a specialized balance of sugar, fat and salt.

But while it tastes phenomenal…it’s detrimental to your fat loss results.

Wondering what exactly classifies as junk food? You’re not alone, especially now that many junk foods are being cleverly marketed and packaged as healthy choices.

Here’s what classifies junk food:

  • Junk food has little to zero nutritional value
  • Junk food is processed and packaged
  • Junk food is high in sugar, fat and salt
  • Junk food is high in calories
  • Junk food is rarely eaten out of hunger
  • Soda pop, convenience foods, packaged snacks, frozen treats…

4 Easy Steps to Quit Junk Food

Imagine being 100% free of junk food for the next 30 days. How would your weight improve? How would you feel? How many empty calories would you save yourself from? Now let’s take some action!

Step #1: Get Rid of It

Step one is simple: get rid of all the junk food that currently resides in your home, office and car. Go through with a big garbage bag and toss anything that remotely resembles junk food. Remember, junk food is stuff that is high in empty calories.

Step #2: Stock Up on the Healthy Stuff

Don’t worry, you aren’t going to starve now that your junk food has been cleared out. Step two is where you go to the store and stock up on delicious, nutritious foods that will take the place of the junk food. Nuts, seeds, fruit, veggies, hard boiled eggs, meatballs, and hearty salads or burrito bowls (like the recipe below) are great items to have on hand. You’ll eat less of these healthy snacks, since these aren’t empty calories, but rather nutrient-filled calories that satiate.

Step #3: HALT!

When the next craving strikes you, tell yourself to HALT! This word is actually a handy acronym. Ask yourself, “Am I Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired?” If you’re hungry then reach for one of the healthy snacks from step two. If you’re angry, then explore the issue and seek resolution. If you are lonely, then reach out to a friend, instead of reaching for junk food. And if you are tired then make the time to grab a nap or get to bed early to catch up on sleep.

Step #4: Stick With It

The first day that you go without junk food will be the hardest day. The second day will be a smidge easier. The third day will be even easier than the second…and so on.

The fact is that your taste buds adjust to the foods that you exist on. When your diet is filled with junk foods then that is what your taste buds will crave, but as you shift to a diet that is filled with fresh, nutritious foods then your taste buds will forget all about that old junk food. Stick with it, one day at a time, and you will break free from the grip of junk food addiction.

Why Diets and Exercise Fail

April 19, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

When you fail to see results from diet and exercise

I saw an infomercial the other day for a weight loss solution targeting the frustrated people who, “fail to see results from diet and exercise.”Had to scratch my head on that one.

When does diet and exercise fail?

This, of course, is a trick question. Diet and exercise don’t fail.

The only way for diet and exercise not to work is if you fail to stick with it long enough for the results to show.

Plain and simple. End of story.

I’ve seen more clients than I can count transform their bodies through the power of diet and exercise. Without surgery. Without gadgets. Without pills.

The real question to ask, when you’re not making progress towards your fat loss goal, is not why diet and exercise has failed you, but rather why have you not stuck with it?

How to stick with a diet and exercise plan…

I will not downplay the hard work that goes into sticking with a diet and exercise plan, day-after-day, week-after-week, in order to achieve a stunning body transformation.

It takes dedication, focus, energy, determination and a stubborn refusal to quit.

Make no mistake about it: losing fat is hard work!

Which is precisely why so many give up before experiencing the body that they really want to have.

So, you wonder, why are some people able to stick with the process long enough to transform their bodies while others jump ship after a few weeks?

Here are the four steps to sticking with diet and exercise for the long haul…

1. Mentally and emotionally lock on to the idea of the new, sexier, you.

You can’t causally date the idea of transforming your body. This isn’t a noncommittal, no-strings-attached relationship – you’ve got to go all in, both mentally and emotionally.

Attach yourself to the idea of a brand new you; focus on how you will feel, what you will wear and how life will improve once you achieve your fat loss goal. The stronger your feelings and mental image become, the more likely you are to succeed.

2. Keep the game plan as simple as possible.

There is no need for fancy diet plans or complicated exercise movements when it comes to dropping pant sizes. Keep your game plan as simple and boring as possible, even eating the same meals everyday and exercising at the same time for the same length (with varying intensity), until your big fat loss goal has been met.

Until your big fat loss leap has been made just stick with an uncomplicated game plan that works.

3. Plan for the resistance.

It’s naïve to think that your body transformation journey will be all smooth sailing. Realistically you will run into resistance time and time again.

This resistance will come in the form of tempting cheat meals, tired muscles, lazy friends and waning motivation. But, most powerfully, the resistance will come from inside of you. It’s natural to resist change, and transforming the shape of your body is big change. Plan for the waves of resistance. See it coming before it crashes over you, and you’ll be able to stand strong long enough for it to recede without hampering your progress.

4. Build in accountability.

This is the most important step by far. It is essential to build accountability into your fail-proof fat loss plan. A friend, a coach, or a mentor who has a vested interest in seeing you succeed will save you from throwing in the towel when things get tough.

The role that I fill for my clients is the accountability to keep them on their path to health and fitness with my support, instruction and encouragement. I celebrate every inch lost and every ounce of new confidence gained.

If you’re not yet one of my amazing clients then today is the perfect day to begin!

Call me at 813-571-3700 or email me at Rob@RobZFitness.com now to get started on your true body transformation story – and let’s show the world how diet and exercise DO work!

Secret to Fitness Success

March 22, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

 
Can you remember how it felt the last time that you ate clean, exercised hard and got adequate sleep for a few consecutive days? A feeling of momentum came over you, didn’t it? There was a buzzing in your cells and a rhythm in your pace. You felt alive, you felt sexy, and you felt empowered. Never mind that you weren’t yet at your goal number, you were headed there!
 
Getting down to your goal weight, and fitting into your goal size, is the direct result of living in that state of momentum for an extended period of time. You see, the momentum can be felt immediately, once you start eating clean, exercising hard and taking care of your health, whereas that “goal number” simply can’t be felt until it is achieved, and so it’s not as powerful a motivator. 
 
My challenge and advice to you is to find the joy of living in the momentum, and keep that momentum going until your goal number is achieved. 
 
Focus only on the momentum, not on the number.
 
Fitness is a way of life. Being lean is a lifestyle. Neither of which can be had by going about it halfheartedly. 
 
You have to become the momentum. 
 
Don’t know where to start when it comes to exercise? Let us help you!
 
Call (813) 571-3700 or email me at Rob@RobZFitness.com today and we will get your momentum started on the exercise program that will reshape your body once and for all!

Why your aren’t working out

March 11, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

What’s your problem for not working out? (I’ll tell you…)

 

You want to be fit. You know how much you should weigh. You know your ideal size. You can even picture how great those skinny jeans will look.

So why aren’t you living life in your ideal body?

There are many complex reasons that make weight loss a challenge, reasons that go deeper than simply calories-in versus calories-out.

I’m talking about the life issues that get in the way of your success. I’m talking about you say that “You are crazy busy.”

Let’s face it, you work too much, commit yourself to too much and don’t even get enough sleep most of the time. The fast-paced way you live leaves you exhausted, stressed and hungry for comfort food. You even begin to feel too busy to take care of your health.

It’s time to reprioritize. Let go of your perfectionist standards and remove a few commitments from your schedule so that you are able to cook healthy meals, exercise and get a good night’s sleep. Remind yourself that taking care of your health is not a luxury—it’s a necessity

The Importance of Small Decisions

January 22, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

 
 
You become fit and lean by a culmination of small decisions. What you eat for breakfast, whether or not you will exercise today, what you eat for lunch, whether you take the elevator or the stairs, what you eat for dinner, and whether or not you’ll eat that dessert.
 
Each and every small decision that you make throughout your day adds up to the shape and fitness level that you have. If 80+ percent of these small decisions are made with fitness in mind, then your body will show it in the most attractive way.

Making a Protein Shake

Click above to view

Swap One Meal
 
If you’re like me and most of my clients you are constantly looking for healthy meals to stay on track to stay in shape.
 
Swapping out a couple of your daily meals for a 1-2 scoop protein shake you’ll save yourself a few hundred calories each day while providing your muscles with much needed protein.
 
Most of my clients choose to make this swap for breakfast and a late night snack. Since it’s so convenience to shake up some protein powder and water to drink on-the-go as you race out the door to start your day.
 
If you only choose to make one resolution this year make it this one – you’ll be astounded at the quick results this simple daily swap will deliver.
 
Need help staying motivated and kept accountable? Call me at (813) 571-3700 or email me at Rob@RobZFitness.com.
 
P.S. This was a short video I put together a few years ago about putting together a simple protein shake.

 Rob Zulkoski, B.S., CPT

Certified Personal Trainer and graduate from Wayne State College, Nebraska in 1991.  My educational background at Wayne State College was in the study of Exercise Science and Wellness emphasizing in fitness training and body conditioning. I have worked and dedicated my life in the field of athletics and fitness for the past 28 years.  I have worked in the Bay area since 1991 as the Corporate Fitness Director of Lifestyle Family Fitness Centers and as the Personal Training Coordinator/Fitness Director at the upscale Harbour Island Athletic Club in downtown Tampa.  I played collegiate baseball and have extensive athletic training for athletes in baseball, football, basketball and volleyball. 

I was born and raised in Columbus, Nebraska and I have been married to my wife Amy since 1993 and we attend Bell Shoals Baptist Church with our two girls.  My hobbies include softball/baseball, college football (Nebraska Cornhuskers), Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tampa Bay Rays, fitness, anything with the girls, (Disney) and graphology (study of hand writing) and photography.

Growing up I really looked up to my father, who was the oldest of six, as someone who wanted to be in the best shape than any other sibling.  He was always active in nature.  So I started to mess around with training at age 16.  While playing in the outfield and batting cleanup for Wayne State I used fitness to enhance my natural ability.  Fitness was always in the back of my mind to keep in shape playing baseball.  Fitness is such a big concern to me knowing that 67% of adults in America are either overweight or obese.  By 2019 those stats will rise to 75%.  Not only are American adults overweight but there is a huge rising trend in children.  My philosophy includes eating properly, weight training and challenging the cardiovascular system.  I apply wholesome and natural foods for optimal achievements.  Changing paradigms can be challenging but achievable!

RobZFitness Mindset

TRAIN WITH A HIGHER PURPOSE.  Just wanting to ‘look good’ will only motivate you so far.  Find a higher reason or purpose to train.  ALWAYS TRAIN TO GAIN, NEVER TO MAINTAIN.  Improve continually. Challenge yourself!  Strive to be your Personal Best!  For me, it’s many things: a way of life, an excellent form of self-expression and creativity, and something I do to maintain longevity of great health.  Take care of yourself today; prevent others from taking care of you in the future.

I love taking a person who doubts his/her genetics and make them into the new person who they want to be.  I love hearing the petty jealousy and anger that comes over other people that say “he/she must be loaded to the hilt” yet he/she is on the same things they are on.  I’m not pushing my methods on anyone.  But, I want you to decide for yourself with deductive reasoning.  So, if you have been working out for 4-5 years and people aren’t commenting, stating or asking questions about you being in great shape on a daily basis, I think that’s embarrassing and you might want to question if what you are doing training wise has merit to it. 

90% of people in gyms around the world are doing some form of volume training, but why does everyone stay the same size year after year?  (With volume training you see a lot of overtraining, joint injuries and people who are burning up all their energy stores incorrectly).  Personally, I like the shortest route at the shortest time possible to get results.  I want clients to know that their fitness trainer thinks their routines out for them.

Open for Motivation

If you’re struggling to find motivation to get to exercise, allow these seven reasons to inspire you to get moving…

Exercise Because —Your Body Works

It may seem like an odd reason to work out, but the fact that you can work out ought to inspire you to do so. After all there are plenty of folks who have been affected by disease or congenital conditions that make working out impossible. If you are able to exercise, do it! Every movement you make, be grateful and work to learn your body’s limits. In essence when you do this you’re giving your body a high five!

Exercise Because —Disease Can’t Handle It

True, there are diseases that will attack you regardless of your fitness level. However, exercising regularly (starting today) is one of the best ways to build yourself up against all sorts of ailments and illnesses. From the common cold to heart disease, exercise helps you avoid health issues and live a healthier, longer life.

Exercise Because —You Family Loves You

Because you want to be around for years in the future, you need to exercise. As seen above, exercise is a great way to fend off all sorts of health issues, many of them life-threatening. So if you want to show love to you family members who love you, you’ll need to work out regularly. Afraid your workouts will take away family time? Get up earlier or take your loved ones with you.

Exercise Because —You Beat Goals

Some people meet goals. When you commit to getting in the gym today, you set yourself up to beat goals. Because once you reach your new bench-press or weight-loss goal, you move on to the next. Do this in the gym enough and it will start to happen in the rest of your life. Deadline at work coming up soon? No problem. Wish you could read more books? Consider it done. Ready to quit smoking? You can do it. All because you worked out today.

Exercise Because —Life Will Be Easier

Ever struggled to get out of bed and get on with your day? Exercising today can help that. Wonder why you always feel stressed out? Once you get in the gym this afternoon you’ll be able to shed the stress. Wish you had the sex drive that you seemingly lost a few years ago? Today’s workout will get you on the right track there as well. See a heavy couch that needs lifting? After spending time in the gym today, that couch will be light as a feather tomorrow. In other words, exercise makes everything in life better, easier, and more bearable!

Exercise Because —Your Body Will Surprise You

When you started on your exercise journey, you wanted to change your body. But somewhere along the way you forgot about that swimsuit-ready body you desired so much early on. Well, guess what? It can still be yours! All you’ve got to do is get in the gym today and get back on the road to it. In six months, you’ll be amazed at how much better your body looks and how much more you enjoy being you.

Exercise Because —Your Friends Will Join You

It can be hard to keep working out in the gym every day if your loved ones aren’t into it. However, if you stick with it and trust your trainer, your loved ones may eventually want to join you in your exercise. Once they realize you’re seeing positive results, they won’t want to miss out. So by going to the gym today, you’re helping others be healthy!

Call me at (813) 571-3700 or email Rob@RobZFitness.com today to get started on my very best exercise program – together we will get you to your goals once and for all! Don’t wait – act now!

Avoid Holiday Pounds

December 13, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

For most of us, the holidays are a time of mixed emotions. You’re excited and anxious to spend time with family, and you’re dreading the extra weight that you know you’re bound to gain. Are these holiday pounds inevitable?

Lean in close to catch these seven secret ways to help you fend off extra weight through the holidays. And once you’re done, don’t keep it a secret. Go tell somebody!

Holiday Secret #1: Listen to Your Body

It may not speak quickly enough all the time, but you know your body is constantly telling you things. Sometimes it tells you to stop a certain activity before you get hurt. During the holiday season, it tells you to put the brakes on your eating before you go beyond the point of no return. When your body tells you it’s full, listen up! A single bite after you’re full will lead to extra calories and eventually, extra pounds.

Holiday Secret #2: Confine the Holidays

For some, holidays become weeks and even months of poor eating. Be careful to avoid this pitfall by digging into your holiday foods only on the actual holiday. Treat the other days like normal days—even if you’re off of work. And when the holiday is over, let someone else take the leftovers home and go to your own house without any pudding or gravy in tow.

Holiday Secret #3: Eat First, Party Second

You read right—it’s good to eat before heading out the door. Have a healthy, well-rounded meal at home with fruits, vegetables, and your protein source of choice. And drink a tall glass of water. Why? So when you get to that holiday party that is overflowing with cookies, cakes, candies, and calories, you’re not hungry for it. Your stomach is full of healthy goodness and has no room for the fattening stuff.

Holiday Secret #4: Plan Your Escape

Getting away from food isn’t easy. If you expect to be able to walk away from delicious thigh- and gut-growing foods without any forethought, think again. Before walking into a potentially fattening situation, plan out what you’re going to eat and take your own dish to share if necessary. Any time there is a particularly difficult eating situation, make plans an hour or so after the dangerous-to-your-diet event begins and excuse yourself.

Holiday Secret #5: Exercise Everywhere

One of the best excuses to gain weight is that you have to travel to visit family and don’t have access to your personal trainer. Well, guess what? Just because your trainer isn’t staying in the hotel with you doesn’t mean you aren’t accountable! Scope out the area where you’ll be traveling and take advantage of whatever exercise opportunities are available. There may be a gym or pool at your hotel, a pay-as-you-go gym, or a nice park nearby where you can walk or run with or without family members.

Holiday Secret #6: Pay Attention to People

Holidays are about family and friends…right? Then stop focusing on food! When you go to a party, there is no need to hang out by the food table when there are people all around you! Ignore the grub and go for the meaningful stuff that you’ll remember and cherish. Besides, it’s much easier to talk without munching and you even listen better when you’re not stuck thinking about how good the next bite is going to be.

Holiday Secret #7: Drink Instead

No, this isn’t a license to drink as much alcohol as you can find. Doing that will add lots of useless calories to your waistline. Instead, do your best to make friends with a glass of water everywhere you go. As you mingle with your water glass, you’ll find it challenging to grab more than a couple of finger foods here and there, and the fact that it is water will help you remember to watch what else goes in your mouth!

Wouldn’t you love to make 2019 the year that you transform your body?

Wouldn’t it feel great to look forward to bathing suit season? To be given a clean bill of health from your doctor? And to be showered with compliments by family, friends and that special someone?

It’s all more possible than you think.

But you’ll need to take massive action.

My programs are designed to quickly and efficiently get you into the best shape of your life.

Call (813) 571-3700 or email Rob@RobZFitness.com now to schedule your first body transforming workout.

Go on, do it now and secure your spot before the New Year’s rush.

Scale Not Budging?

December 4, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Why your weight won’t budge

 

Wanting to drop a few pounds but not able to?

There are few things more frustrating than wanting to be slimmer and to tone your body, without any success.

Read the following 7 Reasons Your Weight Won’t Budge to discover what is standing in your way and how to quickly and easily begin your fat loss journey.

Reason #1: Your Mind

Your mind is your number one ally when it comes to achieving your goals. However, until your mind has been programmed for success, it will do more to derail your efforts than to help you.

  • Take a few moments each day to visualize yourself at your ideal weight. Imagine how it feels to look the way you’ve always wanted.
  • Protect your mind from any negative self talk. If a negative thought comes to mind, immediately reject it.
  • You want to be thin and fit, and yet you think of yourself as out-of-shape and fat. Re-program your mind to think of yourself as fit and attractive, and you will be well on your way toward achieving your goal.
  • Give up the belief that you can’t achieve the body you’ve always dreamed of. See it first in your mind, and then in the mirror.

Reason #2: Your Fear

Change makes most of us nervous – even if it is a change in the right direction. You may not be consciously aware of the fear you have of getting into shape. Until you conquer this fear, your weight loss efforts will be blocked by self-sabotage. Professional speaker and author, Anthony Robbins, has outlined three specific beliefs that you must have in order to conquer your fear and instantly create a lasting change.

  • Believe that something MUST change. You can’t be wishy-washy about it. You can’t be considering it. You can’t even be pretty sure about it. You’ve got to be rock solid.
  • Believe that YOU must change it. You can’t pass the buck of responsibility and expect to lose weight. It’s on your shoulders. Other people will prove to be great assets in your journey, but in the end you are the one who is going to make it happen. You have to want this weight loss enough to make it your personal mission.
  • Believe you CAN change it. You may have failed in the past, but that doesn’t matter. When you put your mind to it, you’re able to do amazing things. Do you believe that you are capable of losing weight? Once you own the belief that you can, you’ll be unstoppable.

Reason #3: Your Excuses

Your excuses for being out-of-shape are getting old. An excuse takes less immediate effort than an action, but in the long run the action taker always has the advantage. Don’t allow excuses to ruin your life any longer.

  • Don’t skip out on your responsibilities with excuses, instead expect more from yourself.
  • Focus on the big reason why you are losing the weight. Make a list of the benefits you’ll enjoy once you achieve your goal and read them first thing each morning.
  • Remember that you can only have two things in life: excuses or results. Which do you want?

Reason #4: Your Commitment

How many times have you tried to lose weight, only to give up a week or two later? We live in a commitment-phobic world, so it’s no wonder that you routinely abandon your goals. If you truly want to lose fat then your commitment to the process is a must.

  • The margin between success and failure is bridged by your commitment. Don’t give up until your goal has been achieved.
  • Treat exercise with the same importance as a work meeting, and you’ll never skip it at the last minute. Find three available 60-minute time slots in your schedule and mark them (in pen) on your calendar. Now stick to your schedule.
  • If you don’t give up, then you’ll never fail.

Reason #5: Your Diet

If you consistently eat the wrong food, then your weight loss efforts will all be in vain. To put it bluntly, you need to stop eating junk. Processed foods, refined sugar and high fructose corn syrup do not belong in your diet if you want to be in great shape. Cut these items out of your diet and replace them with real whole foods like lean meats, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and fruits.

  • Don’t eat processed foods. Even though processed foods are accepted by our society, they contain tons of chemicals and empty calories that will make you sick and fat.
  • Fat contains twice the caloric density of protein and carbohydrates, so make sure to limit the amount that you consume. Eat lots of lean proteins and wholesome carbohydrates from plants and whole grains.
  • Vegetables, whole grains, fruits, nuts and seeds are filled with fiber and antioxidants which are vital for healthy weight loss. Snack on these instead of packaged treats.

Reason #6: Your Patience

It takes time to transform your body from fat to fit, even though you want it to happen overnight. Remind yourself that it took time to put the weight on, so it will take time to take the weight off. When you find your patience wavering, or when you encounter a frustrating plateau, do the following:

  • Review your goal. Is it specific and measurable? Is it small and attainable, rather than monumental? Focus on your goal when the going gets tough.
  • Make each workout a new experience. Challenge your body with different resistance, new exercises and a varied pace.
  • Remember that anyone can have one great workout, but that won’t get you the body you want. The only way to achieve your goal is by consistently exercising and eating right, plain and simple.

Reason #7: Your Support

People who exercise alone are less challenged, less accountable and are more likely to fail. It makes sense. Who would rush to the gym if no one is was waiting for them? Who would push themselves if no one was paying attention? Exercising alone is a recipe for disaster.

  • Find a workout partner who is in better shape than you, or better yet, work with me, your local fitness expert, to guarantee your results.
  • I am passionate about seeing you achieve results—don’t waste your time, energy and effort on mistakes.
  • When you start a program with me, you suddenly have the upper hand on weight loss. I’ll be in your corner, coaching you each step of the way, keeping you accountable to workouts and giving you that dose of encouragement when you need it most.

Get serious about your results and begin the last weight loss program that you’ll ever do.

Join me, my trainers, members and friends of RobZFitness as we race (walk) up the Bank of America building in Tampa on Saturday, April 6, 2019 for the Fight For Air Stair Climb challenge.

in 2011 we competed swept everything and placed first as the largest and fastest team (top 3 climbers in group).  In 2010 we again placed first in largest team but finished second in fastest team time.

Decide Now

November 9, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

If you’re like most people then reading this subject line was a little uncomfortable and you may have even experienced a bit of anxiety. 

Make a decision? Do I have to? 

We are forced to make decisions every day, but that doesn’t make it any easier. 

When you stop to think about it, your life is the sum total of all the decisions that you’ve ever made up to this point. Your health, your mindset, your finances are all an outcome of the decisions you’ve made. 

Some decisions are so small that they seem insignificant… 

…and other decisions weigh on you for days because you know that the outcome will change the course of your life. 

You’ll wade through a myriad of trivial decisions today – ranging from the flavor of your coffee, to the gas you put into your car, to the food you put into your body. It’s easy to be fooled into believing that these have no real impact on the big picture – – but they do. 

You’ll shift over to automatic while making your habitual decisions today – these ones no longer require a second thought since your preferences are defaulted. 

The time you wake up each morning, the way you take your eggs, the frequency in which you exercise. Your habitual decisions play a huge part in determining major factors in your life, and these ones aren’t always easy to modify once the habit is in place. 

We’re always making decisions… 

Big ones like “should you marry him/her”, “should you have another child”, “Should you stick it out another year at that job”? Life changing decisions are forks in the road that demand your full attention and analysis. 

There’s a famous quote from General Norman Schwartzkopf: “A bad decision is better than no decision” which makes sense when you realize that indecision is a decision. It’s best to simply bite the bullet, choose a side, and stick with it (unless you realize you made the wrong decision lol). 

You make a life changing decision when you chose to get fit. 

I want to help you with that… 

I want to help you reach your goal in a big way. 

And the fastest way I know for reaching a fitness goal is to begin a challenging and consistent exercise program, like the ones that I offer to my clients. 

And that leads us to the decision that I want you to make today… 

Will you reply to this email, call, or come in to sign up for my life-changing fitness program? 

Decide now!

Call (813) 571-3700 or email Rob@RobZFitness.com now to get started on an exercise program that will make fat burning second nature, and will transform your body for the best.
 
Talk soon!

I grew up in Lakeland and have lived in the Valrico area since 2006. I married my husband Howard in 2001 and we have two amazing children.

Growing up I played softball and I ran cross country in high school but became very inactive as an adult. Not surprisingly, my clothes size began going up so I decided it was time to get moving again.

About a year or so into my fitness journey I joined a small group personal training and I was hooked! I decided to take my fitness journey to the next level and I’ve been moving ever since. I love to run and I’ve completed two marathons and numerous 1/2 marathons.

After years of contemplating becoming a personal trainer I took the leap and became certified with ACE in the fall of 2016. The following year I completed my Health Coach certification with ACE. I am currently in the process of completing my Body Pump certification through Les Mills.

I love helping people see what they are truly capable of achieving and to discover the beauty that comes with becoming the best version of themselves. I’m a firm believer that fitness and exercise change so much more than just one’s physical appearance!
