Rob comes to us by way of Lake Placid, NY, and joined our team of Sport Scientists in May of 2010. As an exercise physiologist, he facilitates numerous tests in our performance lab, such as V02 Max, Lactate Threshold, FUEL, Wingate, as well as pulmonary function and stress testing.
Rob has spent the past few years navigating to different parts of the country while preparing himself to land in Boulder Colorado. His path began on the right track in Southern New Hampshire where achieved multiple High School state championships, school records and national rankings in 55/110/300m hurdles. His first (small) jump west was to Ithaca College where he studied Exercise Science and continued his 400m hurdling success with school and track records, and an undefeated streak in conference championships. Moving further west again, Rob landed at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs as a biomechanics intern. Dazzled by the drier climate, larger mountains Heading west again, he completed his master’s degree at Montana State University in Bozeman Montana. While managing the local running store he realized there were no longer sticks to jump over while racing. Slightly dismayed he applied his love of running and cycling to triathlon… and learned that he swam about as well as a rock does.
From Montana, Rob moved east to the home of Ironman USA (in which he claims he will never compete): Lake Placid NY. In between seeing the Olympic sights and foliage, skiing, floundering in Mirror Lake, running and riding; Rob applied his knowledge while working with compromised individuals. His patients ranged from pulmonary, stroke and cardiac patients to chronic musculoskeletal injuries with a little performance testing and coaching to spice things up. Realizing he missed sunny days and Rocky Mountains, Rob found his way back to Colorado with Boulder Center for Sports Medicine.
When not at BCSM you can typically find Rob pretending to be an endurance athlete while cycling or while running the local trails with Jake, his Border Collie. When the snow falls you’ll find him in the mountains. You will not, however, find him swimming.
If you would like to schedule an appointment with Rob or ask him questions about the kind of performance testing that is right for you, please call (303) 441-2285.
