Rob joined Vogue Fitness from the North West of England. From a young age Rob was always eager to compete in a wide variety of sports including football, athletics and hockey. Rugby League became his main passion during his teen years as he went on to represent Great Britain and his county at schoolboy level and continued to play at a semi-professional level until he was 20.
Upon completing his university studies to become a PE Teacher, Rob moved to London to start his teaching career and it is here that he developed a strong interest in constantly striving to find new means of becoming fitter, faster, stronger. Going on to gain additional qualifications in strength and conditioning (ISSA) and nutrition (Precision Nutrition Level 1) . It was during this time Rob met his wife, Melissa, and together they moved to the UAE to develop themselves professionally and culturally. After 4 years in the Middle East, they decided to experience the Far East for a year and live and work in China, before returning to the place they call home - Abu Dhabi. His passion to always further push himself outside of his comfort zone has never gone away, and he can often be found trying to develop his CrossFit skill set, as well as attempting to take on new sports such as golf and gaelic football.
