    Robin Marion at Velvet & Steel Fitness who gives 100% to her clients. As someone who has been "chubby" for the majority of my life, I'd lost quiet a few pounds on my own but knew that it would take professional expertise to help me to break a plateau. Not only did Robin provide nutrition and instruction for functional strength, she also provided very highly skilled training pertaining to cycling, running, and strength training. After many years of fighting the battle of the bulge, Robin has helped me to lose more weight than I ever imagined, become stronger that I knew I needed, and compete on a high personal level as a triathlete at the Olympic distance and half Iron distance. I have full faith that Robin's multifaceted, certified, expertise can help any dedicated client meet their individual goals.

    I have been a 'gym-rat' for years, but lately I lost my focus. I was going to the gym and not really achieving any goals. I had read about Robin on some of my friends Facebook page and decided to try her out. Since I know my way around the gym Velvet & Steel's virtual workout programs are what I need. Since I know my way around the gym the workouts have helped me to gain strength and endurance.

    In addition I had surgery to repair my meniscus. Robin's workout have helped with my rehabilitation and assisting me to get back to running.

    Who Knew?
    About a year ago, at the age of 52, I found myself in the ER, having all the signs/symptoms of a stroke. They admitted me right away! I knew I’d been under extra stress over the last 3 years; had experienced unusual weight gain; and I noticed new “problems” that were not issues for me in the past. Still, before this incident, I had no idea that my health was in so much trouble. I’m thankful that it wasn’t “my time” to go, and I vowed then that I would make some changes to better health. I tried various diet plans & fitness gyms on my own but none of them produced the results that I needed to improve my “numbers or my health status”. ...FAST FORWARD... 6 months ago; I made a decision to try yet another method. I made an appt. to see Robin Marion @ Velvet & Steel Fitness. Robin listened intently, and at the end of my assessment, she calmly said, “This is what WE are going to do”. What a Godsend! I’ve never looked back. She genuinely cares! Her “total body fitness philosophy” is UNIQUE! And it works! In 6 months, I’ve seen results from her workouts that I never saw in years of working out on my own. My core was extremely weak, I couldn’t do planks, or proper squats; and strength training scared me to death. With Robin’s help, I’ve improved in all of those areas, plus I lost body fat and gained lean muscle. And I’m not athletic at all, but now training for my first 5K! I know I still have more work to do. But thank you, Robin for taking this fitness journey with me and helping me reach some of my goals so far! I appreciate YOU! This is now a lifestyle for me!

    Robin is an awesome trainer. She lives what she coaches. If you are committed to making a transformation then you should definitely consider her She is passionate about helping others live their best life. She will hold you accountable for your transformation. She gives you the tools but it’s up to you to use them. Even with medical restrictions I have managed to drop one dress size and reduce my cholesterol to normal levels.

    I have been working with Robin for 7 months and have seen results from her workouts that I did not see in years of trying workouts on my own. Her style of training is extremely unique and personalized. Robin is not only a trainer but it is evident that she lives the life of Health and Wellness. She holds her clients accountable just as she holds herself accountable to a healthy lifestyle. I have had trainers in the past who were focused on just the workouts but Robin focuses on her clients as a whole getting to the root of your focus to make your healthy changes last a lifetime. I am truly honored to call Robin MY trainer!
