Robert was born in Jamaica, home of the world’s best sprinters, and raised in Sudbury, Ontario. Throughout his journey of coaching himself in the 95/96 season, he dedicated the first 25 years of his life to his passion: Running FAST.
As Robert's career wound down in 2004, he began to receive referrals from doctors to rehab their distance runners and teach them proper techniques within a 4-6 weeks time span. From there came great results and more referrals for other sports, which was when Robert identified his passion for coaching.
Now, in addition to being a corporate speaker and ambassador, to both profit and not-for-profit organizations, he is dedicating his next 25 years to helping others achieve their dreams so that they can BLASTOFF.
