Bob Shabasson (Master Trainer)
Bob is a Master Fitness Trainer, Senior Fitness Specialist, and Group Fitness Instructor. His focus and specialty is on strength and power. His training methods are based upon traditional strength training protocols/techniques, power lifting, Olympic lifting, and proven scientific studies to increase athletic performance, especially in older adults. He combines different exercises using weights, bodyweight, and cardio protocols and modalities in order to provide variety and achieve maximal strength and performance gains, while providing safe and long-term results. Many of Bob's clients have come with other health related issues such as high blood pressure, pre-diabetes, high cholesterol, and for men low testosterone. Bob's clients have ranged in age from 13-85 y/o, and usually become long-term regular weekly clients (many have been with him for over 6+ years).
Bob's most popular fitness class is designed around an AMRAP (As Many Rounds As Possible), or a self-paced, scalable, circuit. His circuit fitness class focuses on bodyweight strength training, the use of weights and other equipment, speed and agility, and functional movement. This has become the perfect venue for beginners, including seniors, to have fun, work as hard as they want, and achieve the results they desire without feeling left behind by more fit participants.
