Robert Harper, BS, HFS

Robert earned his Bachelor of Science degree in exercise science from Arkansas State University, Jonesboro, Ark. Working out to improve in sports, Robert found a passion for improving himself. In college he found himself tailoring workout plans to help his friends reach their fitness goals. Robert decided that he would pursue what came naturally through a personal training career and has been training at Saint Francis since January 2006. When Robert is not training, he enjoys sports, hunting, fishing and working out.

“I believe that consistency and planning are the keys to success in a healthier life. You will accomplish your goals by having a well-rounded exercise program, good diet and consistently sticking to it. As Charles Caleb Colton once said: ‘A man too busy to take care of his health is like a mechanic too busy to take care of his tools.'”
