Patience, discipline, balance.
These are a few of the traits that fitness has taught me over the years.
Traits you can apply in every other aspect of your life. Combine those traits with passion for the results you’re after and you’ve got some powerful forward momentum for change. Even better, help others down the same path in their own lives.
It’s rarely a one-sided affair. I usually end up learning more from my clients than they learn from me.
I’m Robert Marting.
To me, that’s the true beauty of becoming a fitness professional- passing on years of experience and patience to others who are ready to apply it and make their own dreams a reality.
After graduating from Texas Tech University with a degree in Exercise Science, I decided it was time to chase my own dream a little harder; so I headed west to Los Angeles, California.
As they say, the rest is history. I’ve been a part of just about every project and production I can think of, even met and worked alongside some of the minds that influenced me way back in Texas- people in fitness I never thought I would meet let alone work with. Cool things can happen if you hang in there, I’m proof of that.
From magazine covers, to infomercial host, to fitness supplement ambassador, to government consultant, fitness has given me an inner strength to keep going and always shoot for a little more.
These days, for me it’s more about the results you can get without the stress of a strict or possibly damaging fitness regimen- it’s more about balance. Balance to enjoy life and not feel guilt because you missed a workout or had one too many “cheat meals”. To me, that does more harm than good.
With balance, comes consistency and then comes results, usually a bit easier.
Ten or so years ago, the focus was getting that next big job or magazine cover and I really didn’t think about the real anti-aging benefits that fitness can bring us. Now in my 40’s, I can’t stress safe and effective resistance training enough to look and feel younger- for all of us.
If these things interest you at all, I’m in your corner. There are no limits to what you can do when you have the right knowledge and most importantly, take action.
Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to learn a little about me.
Get informed, get TRANSFORMED!
Hope all is well.
I bought your course last month. Happy to report that I love it and am getting results. Boy I had to swallow my ego and lower the weight. Your super sets kill me...in a good way.
Question: When you will you release the second month videos?
My jeans are lose and my stomach has gotten tighter and love handles have gotten smaller. I can't stand looking at these celebrites who get plastic surgery or lipo because that's not real. Real is you. This world needs more role models like you. I'm glad I can work out at home. Thanks for being a role model for me and others as well.
I CAME UPON YOUR VIDEO ABOUT 3 WEEKS AGO. I USED TO RUN FOR 40 MINUTES 4-5 DAYS. NOW I DO SPRINTS ONLY. THE DIFFERENCE IS AMAZING, MY BODY IS CHANGING REALLY FAST. I USED TO HAVE TO TAKE A NAP AFTER RUNNING 40 MINS BUT SINCE I'M DOING SPRINTS I NO LONGER NEED THE NAP, I HAVE SO MUCH ENERGY, WOW. ALSO, THANKS, FOR TAKING THE TIME TO ANSWER ALL THE QUESTIONS AS WELL. I'VE LEARNED ALOT AND MY CARDIO CONSISTS ONLY OF SPRINTS. I AM A BELIEVER HILLS DO WORK.
Hi, Robert. Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving.
Just a check-in about my workout status. I don't know if I told you earlier, but I quit my job on October 1, so I've had plenty of time to maintain a schedule at the gym. Also, since I'm not going to an office now, I can wear casual clothes every day. So now I'm doing some contract work with our state crime lab, and I had to go for a visit today to a satellite lab. The dress pants felt too big, and my shirt was tight. I'm not measuring myself with a tape or anything, but the evidence at my disposal seems to indicate that the supersets are working.
A very happy Christmas to you.

WELL, I FINALLY FOUND TIME TO TRY SPRINTING. I MUST SAY, I THINK SPRINTING IS AN ACTIVITY WE CAN FORGET HOW TO DO AS WE AGE. IT FELT STRANGE. I HAD NOT SPRINTED IN YEARS AND IT FELT LIKE I COULDN'T KEEP TRACK OF MY LEGS. STRANGE HUH? BUT, BY THE 5TH SPRINT I WAS FEELING BETTER ABOUT KEEPING MY LEGS GOING IN THE PROPER ORDER. I LOVED IT AND WILL NOW REPLACE MY JOGGING WITH SPRINTING. MUCH LESS BORING. LOVE YOUR BLOG TOO.
