Bobby is a lifelong fitness enthusiast. He enjoyed playing many sports as a child and found exercise as a means of improving athletic performance and self-confidence. Bobby is a passionate Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner. He trains regularly to this day and teaches a class at the Igor Gracie Academy.
Although Bobby’s relationship with athletics and exercise brought him a lot of joy, it was also a burden. Bobby would often exercise for hours in a given day. Not only did this lead to a very hectic schedule, but he often found himself fatigued and injured. Bobby felt conflicted; believing he had to spend this much time on exercise, but understood it was unsustainable.
Bobby’s revelation came when he was introduced to the principles of high intensity strength training. Instead of spending lots of time on exercise, he began experimenting with shorter, less frequent, but more calculated workouts. Between this, and making a few dietary adjustments, Bobby saw a major change. His strength and energy levels improved, he found it much easier to maintain low body fat levels and he found much more time in his schedule for other pursuits.
Bobby was fascinated by what he experienced and knew his life had changed for the better. And he became inspired to help other people enhance their lives through similar exercise strategies. Bobby went on to earn certifications as a personal trainer, sports nutrition specialist and exercise therapy specialist. And he genuinely enjoys training people each day!
Bobby joined the SET Fitness team in 2015 and currently lives in White Plains with his wife, Kaitlyn, and his children, John and Kaylee.
