About Rob

I have been involved in sports and fitness my entire life. Having 3 older brothers growing up, I was raised with 2 main priorities...do well in school and do well in sports! I started doing strength training, cardio, and eating right when I was 15 and have never stopped (45 years later)!! I played a little football in high school and college (UC Davis - Go Ags!), achieved my bachelors degree in Physiology and a MBA in Operations Management, and had a 37 year career in the biopharmaceutical industry positively impacting people's lives (very motivating!). I've also taken up competitive bodybuilding as a hobby, which provides me with motivation to continue to keep getting better.

And now, after becoming a Certified Personal Trainer through ISSA, I'm looking forward to impacting lives in a different way - through health and fitness!! Come work with me to achieve your own fitness and well being goals through healthy diet and exercise.

Heat related illnesses, like heat stroke or heat exhaustion, happen when the body is not able to cool itself properly. When a person’s body temperature rises faster than it can cool itself by sweating, this can cause damage to the brain and other vital organs. It is important to recognize signs and symptoms in order to help those experiencing a heat related illness.

Signs of heat exhaustion include:
• Headache
• Nausea
• Dizziness
• Weakness
• Irritability
• Thirst
• Heavy Sweating
• Elevated body temperature
• Decreased urine output

Signs of heat stroke include:
• Very high body temperature
• Loss of consciousness (coma)
• Hot, dry skin or profuse sweating
• Seizures
• Confusion, altered mental status, slurred speech
• Fatal if treatment delayed

Calaveras County Public Health reminds everyone to:
• Drink plenty of water.
• Stay cool, stay indoors.
• Wear light clothing and sunscreen when outdoors.
• Plan outdoor activities for the cooler parts of the day.
• Pace yourself.
• Stay in touch with your family, friends, and neighbor’s, especially those with health conditions and the elderly.
• Don’t leave children or pets unattended in vehicles at any time.
• Heat stroke is an emergency! Call 9-1-1.

We extend our sincere appreciation to the Murphys Fire Protection District, Calaveras County Library, The Red Cross, Calaveras County Office of Emergency Services, Calaveras Emergency Response Team (CERT), HHSA staff, Calaveras County Animal Services, and other invaluable partners who are working collaboratively to open and operate these cooling centers.
