RJB Fitness and Nutrition Consulting is excited to be involved in assisting groups and individuals as they work to better themselves. Our clients regularly share with us how key we have been in making a difference through our support and coaching.
I gave Rob the impossible task of providing me with a Marathon Training Program that would help get me qualified for the Boston Marathon. Rob did a thorough assessment and came up with a great plan. He was there to make sure I was following it, and always monitored my progress. He added exercises [beyond running] and made sure my health was priority. I am thankful to say I made the right choice and I am looking forward to working with him for many years to come.
I needed guidance on how to incorporate healthy eating choices to support my family's busy, active lifestyle. After logging everything we ate for 3 days, Rob met with me to go over the log, identifying what I was doing well and what I needed to change. He gave me nutrition advice and took the time to answer all of my questions. Even after the first month, he is still readily available to answer my questions. For example, I can take a picture of a food label and send it to him, and he responds quickly with practical advice on the quality of the food.
RJB Fitness and Nutrition Consulting is excited to be involved in assisting worksite wellness teams in providing valuable information about healthy lifestyles and nutrition to employees. Our clients regularly share with us how key we have been in making a difference through group instruction.
CHEP Pallecon Solutions, a division of Brambles recently implemented a worksite wellness program for its Livonia, Michigan location. We recognize that an enjoyable, healthy life depends on the well-being of our employees and their families. Investing in their health will ultimately lower health costs and provide employee engagement. The vision of this program was to provide nutritional information and to give our team the knowledge to help them make healthier choices. We were referred to Rob Basydlo of RJB Fitness and Nutrition Counseling by one of our employees. Upon speaking with him, we knew immediately that he would be the perfect fit for what we were looking for. Rob was easy to work with as we customized a program for our employees. He presented valuable information to our work family in regards to living a healthy lifestyle including nutrition and physical fitness. His sense of humor, high energy, and targeted content kept the team highly engaged. We truly appreciate all that Rob has done over the last few months and feel that it will have a lasting impact on the employees and their families. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Rob and RJB Fitness for any company considering employing his expertise in their company’s wellness initiatives.
I shared all I learned with my hubby and we are trying to put into practice some of the great bits of knowledge shared with us. Rob's energy and passion for a healthy lifestyle are contagious -- which is exactly what everyone needs to see and hear!!
