After starting CrossFit in the summer of 2012 to lose weight, Robert discovered Olympic Weightlifting through his gym and was immediately hooked on the sport. While coaching CrossFit classes at a local gym in Tampa, FL, Robert was asked to coach the Olympic Weightlifting program and didn’t look back. He has devoted much of his time to the sport and the betterment of his athletes, as he is currently the weightlifting coach at CrossFit Baldwin Park and has coached all levels of athletes from the extreme novice to national level competitors.
