More about myself

 
 

Greg Robins

Writing a bio for yourself is ROUGH. Here’s what you need to know. I am 32 years old, and have been in the sector of physical preparation for 10 years. In this time I have coached at several great facilities, before opening my own training facility with my friend Tony is 2017. Most notably I served as a strength coach at Total Performance Sports in Malden, MA as well as Cressey Sports Performance in Hudson, MA. In 2013 I started my own online company called The Strength House. This eventually materialized into the facility we operate today.

I have competed on and off in powerlifting for about 7 or 8 years. In this time I have managed to move a 660lbs squat (in competition) a 415lbs Bench Press (380lbs in competition), and a 725lbs deadlift (700lbs in competition). Our gym has helped produce several elite totals, and what I am most proud of, we have helped over 70 people compete in their FIRST powerlifting meet.

As a strength and conditioning coach I have seen and done a lot. I have worked with athletes on EVERY level from professional sports to 12 years old. While a large majority of the athletes I work with have been in baseball, football, and hockey - I have also worked with combat sports, military personnel (I served as an Infantry Officer in The MA National Guard), and every major team sport you can think of. I enjoy the challenge of preparing athletes for the unique demands of each sport. I firmly believe you must be a GREAT generalist in order to be a true specialist. The experiences in working with many different people is why our training programs are second to none regardless of your goal or sport.

My road to where I am now has been anything but easy. At 18 I developed a ruthless eating disorder which is something I still work on daily. The work is never done when you are dealing with negative body image, disordered eating and the mental struggles that can accompany these issues. I am thankful for what these struggles have taught me, as well as the skills they have forced me to develop that I can now use to help others.

I am passionate about maximizing life, and developing a firm understanding of myself. I work to instill these practices in those that I am privileged enough to work with.

Over the course of my career I have been published on sites like T-Nation, Juggernaut Training, BodyBuilding.com, in magazines such as Men’s Health and Men’s Fitness, as well as co-authored a manual for specialized strength in the barbell lifts named “Specializing The Big 3.”

I have presented internationally on topics of Strength and Conditioning and Powerlifting. I served as a lead training instructor for the New Balance Area Code Training Camps for 3 years.

All of that stuff doesn’t mean a thing to me if it didn’t allow me to work alongside some of my best friends, help some amazing people see what their capable of , and provide for my amazing family.

A laundry list of accomplishments may sound like another guy blowing smoke up his own ass. Here’s the deal. I have done a lot, seen a lot, failed a lot, and learned a lot. If you want to achieve something you have not yet accomplished and I have, or have helped someone else achieve then get help. Invest in learning and seeking guidance. Please use the information on the site to help yourself get better.

If you have a point of discussion, or constructive input I am all ears. If you don’t find what I am saying helpful, don’t read it. There’s plenty of other information out there for you.

For those of you who have found help in what I share, thanks for the support. We’re all in this together and it’s a sincere honor and privilege to help you out.
