The philosophy behind Train Rugged is rooted in the undeniable link between the body and the mind. As humans, we are in a constant state of flux; shifting back and forth between mental and physical experiences. At times, these processes work beautifully in sync. At other times, there are gaps in the connection between what our minds want and how our bodies act.

My goal is to bridge that gap and solidify those connections through increased bodily awareness.

About Rob

functional fitness

My name is Rob and I’ve been passionate about movement all my life. Tissue quality, joint efficiency, and longevity of health are my guiding principles. I conduct my work under the doctrine of sustainability. My goal is simple: get the body back to homeostasis by focusing on improving one’s alignment and biomechanics. This work hopes to help others move forwards without going backwards, achieve gain without loss, and access more of themselves for the long game of life.
