Feedback From - Darrin Robinson

Let's take a look into a Day In The Life of the herculean Darrin Robinson.


What are you best known for?
People that ACTUALLY know me would say I'm best known for being the trainer you call if you want to truly transform your body. People that THINK they know me would say I'm best known for
being an arrogant a**hole. This may be due to the fact that I am tell it like it is straight shooter, I tell people what they need to hear not what they want to hear. My success training top fitness models and competitors might have added to the rep, people love to hate.

What day of the week are you telling me about and in which city?
Thursday Burlington Ontario

What time did you wake up and tell me about the first 5 minutes?
The ungodly hour 3:45am, the things I do for clients! Within seconds of the alarm going off my feet are on the floor and I stumble (eyes closed) to the shower where I perform my daily full body shave (eyes very open). Manscaping to the extreme.

Which 3 songs would best fit as a soundtrack on that day?
Eye of the Tiger
Sexy and I Know It
Leaving On A Jet Plane

Most memorable things you put in your mouth?
Sadly this day the most memorable things that I put in my mouth were prescription pain killers and
muscle relaxants for my very aggravated herniated L5 disc.

Who did you share it with?
Clearly you were hoping for a food answer to the last question;) On a typical day I eat very boring and no one short of starving the death would care to share my food.

One thing you wish you could change about that day?
I wish I stayed in bed to let my back rest instead of going to work to rid the world of body fat

What is your most significant food ritual, which you missed?
Ritual is a good word when talking about my food. I follow a very specific diet (weighed, measured foods matching specific macros) and eat in a very structured way. Its VERY rare that I miss any food related ritual and this day was no different, sorry for being so boring.

What shoes did you wear and why?
I would be wearing one of my many pairs of athletic shoes, the brighter and flashier the better. Why? I think a pair of brogues would look strange with my ankle socks and Lu Lu Lemon shorts hence going with the athletic shoe.

Who committed your ultimate food pet peeve, and what was it?
Ultimate, that's a big one. My ultimate food pet peeve is seeing every scrap of food someone has in their mouth as they chew with their mouth gaping open. That didn’t happen this day but I did encounter another food related pet peeve. My friend and colleague James who often complains about his once fit now sloppy body drove me crazy by eating from his favourite restaurant Tim Horton's. Chocolate milk, white bread panini sandwich and a honey cruller does not help you get lean people!

What promise did you break?
I promised I wouldn't push my back too hard, obviously I pushed my back to hard and ended up walking around like a 100 year old man for the remainder of the day (and week for that matter).

One thing you did to build your dream?
I packed my suitcase to prepare for a Fitness Model Search competition that I had to judge. I was
actually helping my friend James build his dream (he owns the organization I am the International Head Judge for), often helping others build their dream can help with your own.

What time and in which city did you go to sleep?
I have no idea what time I actually went to sleep as I was in the air or airports for 26 hours and was awake (minus a 30 minute nap here and there) for approx 40 hours. I finally slipped into bed in Mumbai India.
