Testimonials

Thanks to Rob’s classes and training, I am approaching 50 years old and have never felt stronger or had more energy! His amazing positive energy, creativity and emphasis on safety has kept me a client for more than 10 years. The Contender workouts have not only helped me build physical strength and endurance, but has also increased my self confidence and happiness in my life.

Contenders workouts will challenge you in the best way! I love the high energy coaching by Rob, the music rocks, the time flies and it is AMAZING! Working out with Rob, Tom and Contenders is on another level of top notch fitness. From fun boxing style cardio to TKO authentic boxing drills and heavy bag work, it is not a fad, it is dynamic training by passionate professionals. I always look forward to it even if I’m tired or stressed, I leave feeling strong and invigorated! They always challenge you to do your best and as a busy mom I’ve been a ‘Contender’ 8 years strong and in the best shape of my life!!
