MEET THE COACHES

The impact of proper training is our end goal as certified coaches and fitness professionals.
Coach Rob's Story

What inspired you to get into fitness and training?
My mom convinced me (with a little bribery) to join my high school cross country team after I received a letter from the coach asking me to join. In my first race I came in 3rd from last if I remember correctly, but I worked hard and rarely missed a practice. I made friends on the team and then joined Indoor and Outdoor track that year as well, gradually my speed and endurance increased. My sophomore year of cross country I was bumped up to Varsity. I ended up having a pretty great high school running career, competing in states and federations in cross country and finishing 13th in the 2000m steeplechase at Nationals in outdoor track. I was going to run at Binghamton University but a family tragedy caused my life to take a different turn for a while. Looking back years later, I realized that putting in the work and training consistently made all the difference in my athletic career, and that fitness and training helped keep me on a good path in life after that tragedy struck. In my experience, if you want to be great at anything you need to train smart, recover well, and study all the critical details necessary to improve and reach your goals. It always helps to have a coach to help guide you, give you perspective, and minimize the mistakes you make on your path to those goals. I love to study the science of training, nutrition, and recovery, and help athletes and adults reach their greatest potential possible.

What is your favorite motivational quote?
“Discipline is choosing between what you want now and what you want most.”

What would you say to someone considering training at A.S.C?
The fact that you’re even considering training with us means you have a goal in mind and you know, or have a feeling, you’ll need help to get there. That is the job of a coach, to help guide you somewhere you want to go when you cannot get there yourself. We have the knowledge, the desire, and the commitment to help you reach your goals. We never stop learning. Most importantly we CARE and we aim to always put our egos aside to do what’s best for our people. If you listen, learn, and work on implementing our advice you will reach your goals. We won’t let you down.
