About Rob

"1and1 is an engine to me — An engine that was built using all of my aspirations. I have the unique opportunity to take my attributes and passions and actually help people. America is experiencing a social climate like none other right now, and it gives me joy to know that through this platform I’ll be able to positively uplift individuals and help them improve not only their bodies, but their minds as well."

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.

If you continue to compare yourself to others, I guarantee you that you won't be happy. It's a competition that never ends. When you compete with yourself, it's a healthy competition. You're working to better yourself every day, and not trying to pass or out-do the next man or woman.    For example, there's been too many times to count where I let outside influences sway my impression of what looks good. Maybe a certain store or designer makes clothes that only go up to a certain size. Maybe they go by European sizing, constantly telling us that we should be the size of a high-fashion model. ...

Never ever, ever....ever give up.

Hey Ladies and Gents,Rob here. When success comes, it comes in huge waves — when you're most likely beaten down and least expect it. This has been consistently true through many chapters of my life, which is why it is important for you to also remember this when reaching your own goals. On the flip side, it's equally important to understand that for every wave of success there will be a multitude of failures or moments that come before.   For example, I was sitting in class as a 16 year old wondering how the hell I was going to pay for college. The University of Miami coaching staff pulled...
