About Me

My name is Rob and I’ve been a mover all my life. As a kid, I never could sit still and I dabbled in every sport that was accessible to me. Through my personal experiences I figured out that exercise was a tool to achieve self-growth, confidence, and discovery. For the first two decades of my life, fitness was my passion and my hobby. It took a few years of soul searching and wandering to realize that I could transform my hobby into a lifelong career. This is when I decided to open a movement, strength, and conditioning gym in Boston, MA. I found that I had a knack for teaching others how to move, feel healthier, and more supported in their bodies. What separates my methods from all the ‘fitness solutions’ out there is that I use holistic approaches when I teach movement. From my perspective, training the body is an art form, and to reorganize the body for more efficient and fluid movement is more complicated than the fitness industry leads the public to believe. From 2011-2015 I worked with clients day in and day out in my facility teaching them how to optimize their performance and find their human potential through way of kinesthetic learning. I had the pleasure of working with hundreds of individuals of all ages, shapes, and abilities to help them achieve their unique health goals through movement.

Today, I am applying the skills I have learned out of my new office in Cambridge. I train anybody and everybody who are looking to get back to a more centered, aligned place within their body and their mind. I also coach athletes who use endurance racing, sport specific training, and functional movement as their exercise outlet, though my focus in on improving one’s biomechanics. Working alongside acupuncturists, chiropractors, physical therapists, and osteopaths, I have developed a system that uses a global approach to help clients get exactly what they want and need out of their body. If small-group training is your thing I offer strength and movement classes at OmNamo Center, a holistic clinic in Cambridge. I train individuals with specific needs ranging from rehabilitation from injury to sports mastery. While my passion for fitness remains, my focus in the field of health and kinesiology is a constant evolution.

Over the past couple of years I have integrated structural myofascial therapy into my practice to better assist clients in achieving sustainable peak performance. For this reason I work both as the bodyworker and trainer for most of my clients. It is my intention to bridge the gap between health-care and self-care while providing athletes with congruent information about how their body is moving, recovering, and performing day to day. Doing this has turned me into somewhat of a hybrid trainer, or a ‘body coach’. Using Rugged Structural Integration methods I am able to help you improve tissue and joint health, movement effectiveness, and training outcome (results!). It also means that when your body isn’t performing optimally I can work on you and give insight as to where the misalignment or problem in your muscular system is.

Heading into 2018, my determination to train, educate, and share my knowledge with my clients continues to grow. Whole body training with emphasis on quality of movement and longevity of health are still my guiding principles. I operate under the doctrine of sustainability and how that sustainability transfers into life. For this reason the methods I use work for people who are training for the long haul; to those who are looking for the carryover of their training to reflect as improved functioning in the world. I hope to help my clients achieve progress without compensation, gain without loss, and improved performance with greater rewards.

What to Expect

You’re only as strong as your foundations are stable. For this reason we review fundamental skills constantly and polish every piece of your body mechanics together. The body works most efficiently when biomechanics are understood, taught, and applied. Biomechanics- a prime ingredient missing from almost all exercise regimens, is part of the formula for success with Train Rugged programming. Having sound biomechanics will help improve hydration of your body’s tissues and help make you more elastic and pliable, a characteristic that is necessary to have if you want to live a happier and healthier life. Whether you’re training for something specific or broad and general, Train Rugged’s methods will get you to understand exercise in a much more deliberate, precise, and intentional way. And what sets this coaching apart from all the other trainers you’ll see out there is that I make training fun, educational, effective, and about you. Group classes and fitness fads swear that it will address your every need, but general fitness has gaps in it, mainly that they are not tailored to you. I don’t believe in random programs and assigning exercises unintelligibly. I want your brain and body to understand how to move in a methodical way, with precision and intention. Train Rugged programs get you to systematically lengthen and strengthen tissues by focusing on isometric holds, controlled movements, as well as locomotive patterns that benefit your body. From there we’ll work together to address strategies to improve pliability in your body and coordination of your brain-to-body. Throughout sessions we will cover a broad range of topics ranging from power cultivation, to moving with mindful control, to maintaining your stability. The goal is to harmonize the way your body communicates, so that you can perform any physical task with a sense of ease, confidence, and strength.
