ATHLETES WE WANT TO TRAIN WITH

THE URBAN ATHLETE

By Tracey Longo

Name: Rob Kreider, winning bodybuilder, trainer and entrepreneur

Trains at: Xsport in Alexandria. I train my clients at Fitness First Health Club in Alexandria.

Claim to Fame: Rob swept the NPC Met-RX East Coast Classic in 2010, winning first place, overall champion and best poser awards. A winning athlete and competitor, he’s competed in 27 bodybuilding shows to date. The creator of the mysupplements iphone app, Rob is also busy building his brand, RK Bodies, which includes supplements and apparel (www.rkbodies.com). He is sponsored by and a partner in Big Bitch Formula (www.bigbitchformula.com), which offers breakthrough protein powders with BCAAs and the highest percentage of protein by composition of any supplement out there

Favorite body part to train and why: Legs. It’s the largest muscle group in the body, which requires the utmost energy and focus. Leg training is always a love / hate relationship. Hate doing them sometimes, but LOVE the feeling of accomplishment that you get afterwards.

Lesson learned the hard way: Never settle in love, life, friendship.

Next Up: Rob is spending 2012 adding muscle to his already large-and-in-charge physique in order to move up a weight class and compete as a light heavy weight during the 2013 bodybuilding season. “I’ll do a few local competitions and a couple of national level meets, once again shooting for my pro card,” Rob says.

Available for: Personal training, off season nutrition/training planning, precontest nutrition/training planning, body building posing coach, as well as online training/nutrition/supplementation consultations.
