Robert Marting born in
King County, Seattle, Washingtonis a Fitness Trainerand Spokesperson best known for his fitness training DVDseries Great Form Equals Great Results.
The son of a
Navypilot, Marting spent time as a child in Thousand Oaks, Californiabefore growing up in Colleyville, Texas, a small suburb of Fort Worth. He first picked up a weight in grade school for various team sports. Before graduating from Grapevine High School, he was hooked and knew he wanted to contribute to the field fitness through various types of media. An alumnus of Texas Tech University, Marting earned a Bachelor of Science in Exerciseand Sport Sciences. Upon graduating in 1996, he started the Personal Training service PrecisionFit in Dallas, Texas. A savvy student of bio-mechanics and physiology, he became a stickler of perfect form and technique with his clientele and often challenged the growing personal training profession for not holding the same standard.
From his time at Texas Tech Marting had set a goal of getting in good enough shape to make the cover of a major fitness magazine. Moving to
Los Angelesin 2002, he achieved that goal appearing on multiple magazine covers including Men's Fitnessand Bill Phillips Muscle Media. Wanting to communicate the countless physical and psychological benefits of correct resistance training techniques to everyone, he began filming segments that would later become Great Form Equals Great Results. The first volume was completed and distributed worldwide in 2003, with the more advanced volumes 2 and 3 completed in 2007 to form the box-set.
