PERSONAL TRAINER & SPORTS MASSAGE | TRAINING IN SANTA BARBARA, CA

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 THE TRAINER

My name is Rob and I’ve been fascinated by human movement and behavior all my life. As a health practitioner, I prioritize restoring joint efficiency / adaptability, and vitality to my clients. Longevity of health is my guiding principle, and I accomplish this by rebuilding the quality of your connective tissues. I conduct my work under the doctrine of sustainability while focusing my efforts on joint repositioning and muscular development. My mission is simple: train the body closer to homeostasis by dialing in on one’s alignment, biomechanics, and lifestyle. This work hopes to help others move forward without going backward, achieve gain without loss, and access more of themselves for the long game of life.
