My name is Robert Grasmick and I am 33 years old. Once upon a time I was really out of shape. At my worst point, I was just under 220 lbs and probably over 30% body fat somewhere, who knows how high?
You reach where you see that you aren't who you want to be or SHOULD be. I had enough and started to exercise more. I knew next to nothing about nutrition or how to workout, but cut out soda and did a little cardio and weights. Over time, I got myself back into reasonable shape, usually landing around 185-195 lbs and with body fat probably just under 20% over the past 5-7 years.
In September of 2010 I hit one of those low points again and was just about 200 lbs and my body fat was up. I felt lethargic and wasn't performing in my soccer games like I wanted to. I felt I was letting my teams down.
I began reading more about nutrition and working out and recommitted myself to getting back in shape. I got back down to close to 185-188 and was feeling better. That's when it happened....My friend was a Beachbody coach and was geting great results using P90x, Shakeology, and who knows what else, I decided to be a coach so I could get a discount on the Shakeology and push myself to the next level. Within 2 months I was down another 10 lbs.
Now it's my turn to pay it forward. I discovered that I enjoy helping people get back in shape and pushing others to succeed. I became an Emerald Coach on my birthday last year in October. I am pushing forward and am in the best shape of my life...oh, and those soccer games? I've nearly lead every one of my leagues in goals each season this year.
I am now a Diamond Coach and moving up. It is exciting to pay it forward and help others change their lives for the better! Are you next?
My goal is to help you reach your goals! Let me know if I can help in any way!

My latest transformation started in September/October of 2010. I was out of shape and overweight and my weight had gotten up to 199 lbs. As a soccer player, my performance in matches greatly suffered. I decided it was time to turn it around. At the end of October, I got myself back into an exercise routine. I then started working on my nutrition. I have been steadily turning fat into muscle.
In February of 2011, I did my first Shakeology cleanse in February which dropped my weight from 185-176.6 lbs and have kept it off while taking Shakeology daily and working out on a regular basis..
***Update*** My current weight is at 167 lbs. I haven't been here since high school. My journey has now taken me more into coaching and helping people and I LOVE IT! I am about to start week 3 of Insanity which is quite possibly my favorite workout program yet...Can't wait to get my "I earned it!" Insanity T-shirt to show off to the world!
