Rob hudson, owner/personal trainer
I believe the body requires diverse movement to develop all of its physical capacities. The training programs that I advocate combine strength, balance, mobility, agility, coordination, speed, and power. This gives my clients the best result for an active lifestyle. No matter what your age or your goals you should be trained in a manner that develops broad physical capabilities.
Education: 30 years of personal training experience. I’ve gainedmy knowledge through diligent study and practice of diverse exercise protocols, studying under professionals in my field who are the best at what they do, and continuing my education through self-study, workshops and certifications annually.
Fitness-Related Interests: Mountain Biking, Snow Skiing, Water Skiing, Soccer
Personal Training: I teach what I practice
judi CHAPMAN, personal trainer
Education: I began my career in business obtaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing from Miami University and an MBA from Xavier. A self-proclaimed lifetime Exercise Junkie, I have my Personal Training Certification from ACE and I’m continuing my exercise education with Rob Hudson.
Exercises/Training I love:
HIIT training, spinning, boot-camps, and strength training.
How I can help you: I love to meet people where they are and help them develop the strength they need for the life they want- incorporating accountability, intensity, encouragement, and fun. We all have limited time to exercise, and my goal is to develop a routine that’s the most productive and rewarding for my clients. In my spare time you will find me hiking, biking, and doing outside activities. I can’t wait to help you reach your goals!
I generally work behind the scenes here at FBD, however, I still keep my hand in personal training with a few select clients. I tend to teach what I love to do. I help more mature clientele, and women of all ages get comfortable around heavy weights. After 26 years of picking up dumbbells and what-not, I can't imagine my life without it. I'd love the opportunity to help you!
