    I first started training without Robert Santana in 2016 already having several years experience without a SS coach. Although I was skeptical of online coaching we quickly established the goal that I wanted to lose 30 lbs while making all my lifts go up. In less than a year I accomplished all my goals! my 5RM for all lifts went up as follows. deadlift up 75 lbs, Bench up 40 lbs, Squat up 25 lbs, and press up 47lbs, and guess what—I dropped 30lbs while I did it. Robert is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He’s generous with sharing his knowledge and experiences all to the benefit of the lifter. His new facility & gym Weights & Plates out of Phoenix AZ is the best thing to happen to our city for strength and health. Highly recommend Roberts online services and everyone should visit his Gym

    Robert Santana is one of the BEST Coaches in the Strength & Conditioning industry. His impeccable level of knowledge of exercise physiology, sports nutrition, biomechanics, and strength training technique far surpasses the average personal trainer today. Robert can provide insight on every aspect of your fitness journey and not only teaches you the How you do something, but also the WHY you do something. This is no ordinary come in a get a cookie cutter style workout personal trainer. Robert is a legitimate coach who will show you how your body works. He will show you how to properly build strength and properly prevent injury in every level of programming. One of the finest strength coaches around, who guarantees results the way they were meant to be achieved. I’ve learned a great deal from him and continue to learn more each day. Highly recommended.
