I was always interested in obstacle course racing as a hobby, and I have wanted to get into the kind of shape I see others in where they are able to get themselves through those races in a competitive manner. After training with Robin, I finished the Spartan Stadium Sprint in 1:27, which is kind of insane for someone who pretty much only used the our Track Tuesday workouts as training. I also was able to PR back squat 155lbs recently in Crossfit, and I 100% feel the Spartan training and the Spartan Race prepared me for that PR.
I love the positivity, accessibility, and fun of Robin’s training! I never feel as if working with Robin is a chore, and I also never feel as though getting the kind of results Robin herself has achieved is unattainable, though of course it takes hard, hard work. love getting a kick-ass workout without feeling pressure to push too far beyond my limit. Because of this, I DO feel myself able to reach beyond my threshold which I attribute to a relaxed and positive environment.
I would 100% recommend Robin to someone who has been running races competitively for years as well as someone who has never done a fitness class in their life. I will say though, I would definitely encourage someone who has not done much fitness activity to especially check out Robin and her offerings, due to reasons I mentioned above. However, Robin is also kick-ass and super fit and knowledgeable, and I know that if she had a battalion of elites, she’d be able to test their limits!
Ultimately, I love that Robin loves what she does, and loves helping people reach their goals. I also love that she espouses the belief that there is no age or level of ability that is too old or too novice to begin an incredible fitness journey!
