Recommendations

The following recommendations come from people across the world; some of whom I have interacted with on a daily basis and others that I have never met, but have simply seen my work.

If you would like to add a recommendation to this page, please contact me with “Recommendation” in the subject line.

Tim C., Personal Training Client

“Training with Robbie has introduced me to tons of new exercises and his workouts have kept pushing me to improve. The sessions are very positive and he’s got a great way of keeping things fun even though I’m sweating buckets. Also, Robbie coming to my gym is a huge time saver!”

 

Julia E., Personal Training Client

“Robbie has really exceeded my expectations. He’s knowledgeable and professional. I love that he tailors every workout to meet my individual needs. He’s supportive, yet challenges me. Best of all, he’s AWESOME! He makes working out with him fun. I’d recommend him to anyone!”

 

Dorte K., Boot Camp Client

“I have trained with Robbie in a group setting at a small gym with little equipment in the building I work at. A few of us used our lunch hour on a weekly basis to exercise with Robbie. He made the workouts fun and enjoyable, brought in great music as well as some of his equipment. The circuit he put together for us worked well and incorporated cardio as well as strength exercises for the whole body. I truly enjoyed how he re-introduced me to the skipping robe, a childhood favourite. I had forgotten how much fun it was and have now gone ahead and purchased my own. Now I am looking forward to every session with Robbie.”

 

Julie H., Personal Training Client

“What I appreciate most about Robbie is that he manages to walk the delicate balance of pushing me without being so aggressive and demanding that I lose momentum and give up. His positive attitude and deep knowledge of both fitness and nutrition make him one of the best trainers I have ever worked with. I sincerely look forward to every workout with Robbie because they are fun and diverse. I cannot wait to crush my wellness goals with Robbie in 2015!”

 

Shannon W., Personal Training Client

“I’ve trained with Robbie for over four years now and consider our sessions a critical part of my overall health and fitness plan. Robbie has equipped me with the essential tools for a balanced health plan including a well-rounded strength and conditioning program and nutritional guidance. His stewardship has supported high ranking fitness testing results and has also put me in a position to enjoy a healthy pregnancy! Continuing to train with Robbie through pregnancy has me feeling just as strong, healthy and confident as I did previously. Pregnancy has also made me appreciate the core/abdominal strength he has helped me develop over the years as I’m finding even the advanced level of recommended abdominal exercises for pregnancy to be easy going!”

 

Kristen R., Personal Training Client

“Robbie makes the workouts really fun and pushes me way more than what I would do on my own. He’s professional, motivating, and customizes the workouts to suit my needs ”

 

Seven, Physical Education Teacher, Nanyang High School

“Robbie is a very patient teacher. The students liked him.”

 

Stephanie Talbot, Owner, Circle of Life Nutrition

“As a new business owner, I was having trouble changing the format of my logo over to something usable for printing. Robbie was eager to help and not only did a fabulous job, but he had it finished for me the same day! He definitely knows what he’s doing and I would recommend him to anybody needing help in this area of work.”

 

Michael Ford, Owner, Detail Communications

“Robbie has worked on contract with Detail for the last 2 months. Robbie was hired to assist with a variety of marketing and communications projects including business development.

Robbie is a strategic thinker and a dedicated team player.”

Sue, New Curler, Marpole Curling Club

“I just took a lesson with Robbie Gallaugher (Sept 12th) and was very pleased. I started curling last year and Robbie quickly picked up on what I needed help with technically. He made it easy to understand and really helped me in the short time we had together. He also showed me some drills I could do to work on the tips he gave me.

Robbie also explained the events coming up, showed me the website on his computer and told me about the Open House which I will be attending. Robbie is going to be a great asset to the Marpole Curling Club!”
