Studioz saved my life!
“I love the outdoors and get involved in a few sporting activities that not too many women enjoy – I love hunting! However, to be successful in
this sport, you need to fit and strong. Achieving an increased level of strength and itness was a major goal for me, and losing weight as also a goal. Robb has been able to damatically improve my fitness wth a tailored program to suit me.
My fitness was put to a real-life test in Sept 2010. During one of my hunting trips I had to cross a swollen river while carrying a full backpack and a rifle. I was only about half way across when my feet were swept out from under me. At that stage I wasn’t concerned as I was heading for shallow water where I thought I could get out. Unfortunately that “plan” didn’t work because the current was far too strong to stop myself.
Instead I was swept into the deep part of the river and by now my backpack had filled up even more with water.
After being dragged down beneath the water twice, I knew I had to remove my backpack which meant I needed to first remove my rifle. So, while completely submerged for the third time I removed my two-way radio, my rifle (which was crossed over my shoulders & chest) and finally my backpack (which was double-clipped). It took all my strength and energy to stop from sinking completely and to swim up while still carrying all that gear in my hands – thank God for squats and leg presses!
I did take water into my lungs and yes, I honestly thought I was going to die. So I paddled as hard as I could until I came clear of the water, laid straight onto my back and slowly made my way across the current til I reached the bank – about 80 metres downstream from where I went in. If this little “adventure” had happened a couple of months earlier, I would not be here today to tell the story. I truly have Robb to thank for helping me gain my strength and level of fitness I needed that day.
The nutrition plan that Robb develops are wonderfully easy to follow – and the best part is they’re based on real, everyday foods. No packaged, pre-cooked, microwave meals. I’ve also found ways to packing healthy foods to go camping and hunting with – even snacks that fit into my backpack.
Thank you Robb for working with me. You are an excellent coach – motivating me when I felt down and out, pushing me when I thought I’d reached my limits, making me accountable for all my actions, and most importantly rewarding me when I achieved my successes.
Keep up the amazing work that you are doing!”
