For me, fitness has been a part of my life since I started with my first Karate lessons at the age of 9. Since then, I’ve participated in many different physical hobbies ranging from wrestling to snowboarding.

I believe in fitness as a way to change lives. I’ve seen people do things that were impossible for them before they became fit. It’s one thing we can do as humans to shape our future. 1 year from now, we will all be 1 year older. We cannot control that. We can control where we are in that year. If we want to be stronger, leaner and more conditioned, we can make that happen. Or not.

My philosophy regarding physical culture begins by placing a premium on the function and health of the body. I improve upon this by focusing on joint mobility, muscular strength, and cardiovascular conditioning while working with people to help support these with a healthy diet and lifestyle.

I currently have 5+ years of experience during which I have logged over 4,000 hours training students.

My current certifications:
-NASM Certified Personal Trainer
-NASM Corrective Exercise Specialist
-NASM Performance Enhancement Specialist
-USAW Sports Performance Coach
-FMS Level 1
-Precision Nutrition Level 1 Coach
-Strongfirst Barbell Instructor

I offer extensive strength, conditioning and nutrition coaching. I am eager to get you started.

My name is Bob Clements and I am 46 years old, 5′ 6″ tall, and weigh 220 lbs. A little more
than two years I ago I was depressed, struggling in my personal and professional relationships,
and let my adult onset diabetes get out of control. My weight had reached 260lbs, I had no
direction in my diet and my daily activity was non-existent. I was on a fast track to an early
death and I didn’t care.
I knew I had to do something so I joined 24 Hour Fitness and was introduced to Wes Edge.
Together we started the journey of figuring out I wanted to do with my diet and activity. At first
my biggest struggle was to make it to my appointments with Wes. I was, and still am, in a high
stress job that has inconsistent work hours and a full home life. Who has time to go to the
gym?
Our first goal was to get me to the door of 24 Hour Fitness. If I could just get to the door, then
the rest would follow. It was always so much easier to just go home and watch TV. What we
found though was if I could just get to the door, and do the work, that I would feel so much
better when done.
In a search to find what would keep me engaged, Wes developed programs on everything from
the elliptical machine to kettle bells, Indian Clubs to swimming, and core conditioning to
powerlifting. Powerlifting, of all things, I’ve never been interested in powerlifting. I had never
been interested in powerlifting but once he got me started, I really took off. We developed my
“Core” and over time I have gone from a back squatting a 45 lbs bar to a one rep max squat of
330 lbs – and I’m not done yet!
My goal is not to go from cheese cake to beef cake, its to go from strong to stronger. I am not
the best lifter in the gym, but Wes has taught me good technique. Before, I would never go lift
by myself. Now, with Wes’s coaching, I have built up the confidence to workout four days a
week with Wes at my side only one day of those four – though he is always there if I need him.
Do you want to run a 5K? Do you want to eat healthier? Do you just want to feel better about
yourself? Regardless of your goals, Wes and his team of trainers can help you accomplish any
goal.
Its hard work, and there continue to be days where my goal is to get to the door, and Wes
continues to open it for me. I feel better than two years ago. I’m in healthier relationships, more
proficient in my recreational activities, and have a new outlook on life. All this is largely due to
Wes. I still struggle with my diabetes, but I got is scared now.
Start simple. Get to the door. Feel good about accomplishing that goal. Then talk to Wes about
your next goal. Get to the door, and Wes will open it for you.
