Interview with Rob Sulaver of Bandana Training
A former NCAA D-1 wrestler for the University of Michigan, Rob has seen it all when it comes to fitness. So check out our interview with the Bandana Trainer himself below!
– What is with the bandana?
The bandana dates back to when I was a wrestler at the University of Michigan. During our workouts, a bunch of my teammates and I starting wearing bandanas. At first, it was purely practical — like a sweat band — but it eventually evolved into a bit of a thing.
Our bandanas became part of our swag — a symbol of our dedication and camaraderie.
After I graduated and moved to NYC as a trainer, the bandana was a necessary part of my workout — I was always rockin’ it. People would ask the front desk about, “that trainer in the bandana.” It only seemed logical to go with it…and Bandana Training was born.
– What are the three things you like to accomplish with clients?
With my clients, I like to establish good habits outside the gym; I like to redefine what clients think they’re capable of; and, I like to have a good time. When I do that, we always end up in a solid place.
Train Anyone, Anywhere in the World.
– What are your thoughts on logging daily workouts?
Logging workouts is almost always a must. Unfortunately, you don’t see enough trainers making it happen. The iPad was a game-changer for me — I log all my workouts there.
– What type of supplements do you take?
I also dabble with some others for certain phases. Supplements are so important. You need to study them and understand them (because there is a lot of trash out there).
But because of the quality of our current agricultural system, you can’t get everything you need without supplementation.
– What are some out-of-the-box training methods you would suggest?
Out-of-the-box? I’m a big fan of Romanian Deadlifts. Do those come in a box?
We would like to thank Rob for taking the time to stop by and do one awesome interview! He is a great guy, and we love what he is doing in the fitness world!
