Rob Hankins was born and raised in Dallas, Texas where he pursued athletics from a young age. This included swimming, tennis, gymnastics, power lifting and track and field sprinting. His main focus was always football.
As a high-school senior, Rob graduated as ESPN’s 10th ranked linebacker in the nation. Rob continued his career at the University of Arizona and started at middle linebacker as a true Freshman. He was the first student-athlete to do so at Arizona in a decade.
After a successful freshman campaign, Rob was unable to continue playing football at the beginning of his sophomore season. In an unfortunate turn of events, a sequence of severe concussions forced Rob to retire from football for medical reasons.
Rob’s exit from football did not keep him down. He decided to continue his education and became increasingly passionate about fitness, which is now his main hobby and focus. Rob’s fitness career began when he was offered a contract with the Sports and Lifestyle Unlimited Agency (SLSU) in Los Angeles, California. From there, Rob continued to pursue fitness by broadening his education and earning his certification as a personal trainer from the Cooper Institute of Dallas, Texas. Rob has been able to use this certification to satisfy his passion of helping others through personal training.
Rob is known for his drive, ambitious personality, good heart, and consistent work ethic. He ensures that every person that he comes into contact with leaves the situation an improved version of themselves, whether its through his training, helpful tips, or motivational advice. Rob also has a strong love for fashion, image and photography.
Rob is on track to graduate from the University of Arizona in May 2016, with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology and a minor in Business Administration.
