The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind, as I’ve been on the floor a bunch and coaching some really fun athletes. As a result, I’ve also been reflecting on some of the lessons I’ve tried to teach my young athletes along the way. Each and every kid is a little bit different, and […]

Welcome to the new and improved Robertson Training Systems (RTS). I’ve been meaning to write this for a few weeks now, but unfortunately, things have been truly hectic and this is the first time I’ve been able to sit down and put pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard!).

Yo Mike! Edition 1

Yo Mike! What’s up man – you haven’t been blogging/Facebooking/Tweeting much lately. What gives??? First and foremost, thanks for the concern 😉 Needless to say, the past couple of months have been really busy, and yes, I haven’t been as “visible” lately.

Mike’s Top 12 Training Resources

One thing that really pisses me off about our industry is some of the ridiculous “number” posts you see. For example, a few months back I saw a post that was something along the lines of “The Top 50 Fitness Bloggers” or something alone those lines. I won’t claim to be the all-knowing, but I […]

Who Does MR Train?

Last week about this time, I was having coffee with a good friend and former IFAST intern Eric Oetter. Eric is one of the most driven and curious individuals I’ve ever met, so it’s always great to have a chat and see where his head is at. Since we don’t get to catch up as […]
