Lost 70 lbs

Body Fat 36.4% to 22.6%

Lost 14% Body Fat

Last December, my husband approached me about us setting a goal of getting healthier in 2023. So, we made an appointment to talk to Rob at RobZFitness, who was recommended to him by our primary care physician Dr. Shawn Wallace. Upon meeting with Rob, we both decided it was time to commit to a healthier way of life. With the help of Rob and Taylor, and the support of each other, we have lost about 170 pounds total over the last 8-10 months. I have lost 70 pounds and lost 14% body fat in 10 month. My overall fitness level was at 15% when I started and now its at 88% for women at my age.

Like a lot of women, I have struggled with my weight all my life, especially after kids. This time my weight loss feels different. I wasn’t sure what to expect in the beginning, but I am surprised at how much stronger I’ve become, and the weight seem to just come off, losing an average of 2 pounds a week. I am 5’10 and I haven’t weighed under 200lbs in years. Now I weigh 195. With Rob and Taylor’s encouragement, I am pushing myself to get stronger and doing exercises I never thought I could accomplish. I have a few limitations with my knees but both Rob and Taylor worked around it and still push me to get stronger.  

Rob focused more on strengthening during his sessions and I am lifting amounts I never imagined. Taylor designated Wednesdays as Carolyn’s Core night. With his help, I am doing core exercises that I never thought I was capable of. With the support of Rob, Taylor and my husband who encouraged me all the way, I am stronger and healthier than I’ve been in a long time.  

Thank you for helping me get stronger and healthier.

“Lost 55 lbs, Body Fat 32% to 11%, Pant  Size 40 – 32”

I have been weight training at RobZFitness for a little over a year now, and I can’t begin to express the difference it has made in my life.  Although I went to RobZFitness for about 3 months prior to this time, I just wasn’t ready to make the commitment and so I quit.  But as time passed by and my waist size continued to grow to a size 38 and getting tighter, I realized how much my weight gain was affecting my self-esteem and my attitude.  I had little motivation or confidence and I was losing direction for my life.  I then realized that if I didn’t make a change, I was going to make life very hard for myself.

At 250 lbs, I decided to give RobZFitness another try, and myself another chance.  I was welcomed back with compassion and encouragement from Rob and Taylor.  They helped to educate my on a very supportive eating and exercise plan.  I received plenty of assurance and encouragement that soon I began to see plenty of results that motivated me ever more.  It started with a few pounds the first week, more the second.  Then I started dropping clothing sizes.

I couldn’t believe how drastic my body fat percentage had dropped when it was time to do my measurements.  I was amazed!!  The results were happening and I was being transformed.

Overall I have lost 55 pounds of scale weight (increased 13 lbs of lean weight, lost 68 lbs of actual body fat), body fat% dropped from 32% to 11%, and Rob tells me now I am in better body fat shape than 73% of men at my age (up from 3%).  My pant size has dropped from 40 to 33 inches.  I feel great about myself and I feel more confident.

After seeing the results and the impact it has had on my life, I have decided to begin personal training school so that I can, in turn, do for somebody else that Rob and Taylor have helped me achieve in myself.

Lost 31.5 lbs, Size 8 to “0” – 3 Months

Deanne - B&A“As a mother of 2 and business owner, I felt as if I had tried everything humanly possible to get in the best shape for my health and overall well-being with the time and resources I had available to me. I had been dedicated to cardio exercise and strength building for years, but was not seeing the results I thought I should be seeing. I decided it was time to go to the experts.”

“I looked at a couple of possibilities, and determined that if I wanted the best results, I needed to go to a proven source of expertise.  I had seen RobZFitness testimonials and heard about the results and after doing some research on what I should expect and gathering a great deal of courage, I decided to walk in their door.  I found RobZ staff to be very welcoming, encouraging and knowledgeable.  As hard as I had tried all these years, many of the exercises were incorrect in technique, not enough weight, or just simply not pushing beyond what I thought I was capable of doing.”

“The results were fast and furious I was amazed at how simple the theory of exercise and healthy eating really was, and although not one for pressing myself in the area of physical fitness, I found the benefits FAR outweigh the sweat equity.”

“Not only did I surprisingly drop 31.5 lbs of body fat and a 14.1% body fat change the first three months (a welcome plus), but lost 19 total inches (6.5” waist and 4” thigh, etc.) and was seeing visible sculpting.  I had walked in hoping to tone up, which I did, but found so much more. Rob mentioned at the beginning I was in better shape than 20% of women my age and now I am in better shape than 91% of women. I suffered from migraines since adolescence and being on RobZ plan, I did not have one migraine- which to me, was nothing short of a miracle.  The trainers helped me to understand the dynamics behind balancing food intake and how this affected the chemical balance in my system.  I had never looked forward to working out the way I have while working at RobZ.  The workouts turned out to be the biggest stress relief of my life and the education I received will follow me and motivate me for a lifetime.  My only regret is that I did not walk into RobZ sooner!  What are you waiting for?”

It Doesn’t Matter What The Scale Says!

Colleen Pounds,

Physical Therapist Assistant

Weight Scales lie!

My victory can be seen but not weighed, and it feels good.

Before RobZFitness, like so many others, I habitually stepped on the scale. My Personal Trainer immediately began drilling into my head to “Stay off of the scale”, explaining that it often gives false impressions of what really happens, which leaves people feeling defeated and depressed. Through the Education component of the RobZFitness program I learned that the only reason scale-weight is needed is to help calculate one’s Fat-to-Muscle Mass ratio. Herein lay my victory.

If I were to tell you that from May to September I lost 13.5 pounds, you might not be impressed? However, here is the big picture. Within these four months, I lost 29 lbs of body fat, gained 15.5 lbs of lean muscle mass, dropped from a size 16 to 10 and decreased my body fat from 37% to 22%! This is what I actually achieved with the in-depth education of fitness and nutrition given to me at RobZFitness.

I feel very confident that I now have the tools to maintain my results, my strength and my nutritional habits for a lifetime.

Thanks gang!
