Hi I’m Rob Kish, I’d like to welcome you to robkish.life. Here’s a bit more about me:
I am a personal trainer, holistic nutritionist, health coach, mind coach, and seeker of human potential. I am extremely passionate about changing people’s lives’. My wife has an “incurable” form of Leukemia, according to conventional medicine, however, I personally, do not believe any disease is ‘incureable”. This circumstance has opened my eyes to the gift of life, empowered me to seek my life purpose, and true human potential.
Beyond the labels, I am a life changer. It is mastering all aspects of your health that will allow you to be in peak condition: physical fitness, mental health, nutrition.
I started this website to reach beyond what my capabilities are limited to by working with clients 1-on-1. I had an epiphany about why I love my job so much. All this time, I thought it was my passion for the science of our unique gift called the human body. My true passion, however, is changing the lives’ of other’s in ways they couldn’t have imagined.
All the years of working with numerous clients has taught me something, I have a lot to offer. It helped me realize I perceive the world, and our lives’, differently than most people. Creating robkish.life is a way for me to fulfill my life purpose and touch as many lives as I possibly can, and open the opportunity to change lives’ on a much larger scale.
I am truly excited to have the opportunity to live in a time where I can do this. I am very grateful for this opportunity.
I am an introvert, I was extremely shy as I was growing up. I have come out of my shell over the years, however, I am still an introvert at the core.
I have battled with being a perfectionist, and a fear of expressing my emotions, most of my life. I have learned to overcome certain limiting beliefs that were holding me back, and ultimately lead me to these unwanted characteristics of myself. I am on a mission to seek my human potential and live an extraordinary life.
On May 15, 2009, little did I know, my life would change forever. I started dating, my current wife, Allie. She was no ordinary girl: Hawaiian, zest for life, highly intelligent, and a beauty I thought could only exist in my imagination. There was one other thing about her that was extremely rare for her age (25 at the time), she had a terminal illness. A very rare form of Leukemia.
Despite the risk of losing her, and breaking my heart, I chose to keep loving her. She deserved to be loved, just like anyone else in this world. I thought “how selfish would it be to not let her embrace my love just because “I” don’t want to get hurt?”
This is the start of a journey that would inevitably turn my life upside down. All of my personal beliefs, limiting beliefs, fears, and truths, would all be called into question. My entire identity of myself, and the world around me, was no longer valid. At the time, I thought this was a terrible thing, what was the purpose of life if I didn’t have anything to believe in?
In January of 2010 I ended up hitting the lowest point in my entire life. I had seen the worst of what cancer can do to one person, both mentally and physically. The fear of losing Allie, and the fear that cancer had inflicted within me, was ravenous. I lost identity of myself, all my beliefs and truths, and actually told Allie, I didn’t know if I wanted to be with her anymore. I took a week off work, and literally laid in bed the entire time. This was a turning point for me, as I was either going to crash and burn, or I was going to rise up. I chose to rise!
I made a conscious decision to use my learning experience as a source of inspiration and empowerment, whereas many would have experienced it as failure. Unfortunately, many people in my circumstance bask in self pity and despair, manifesting their own losses. I truly feel for these people, as not many people in this world can relate to them, I know from experience. One fascinating aspect of being human, is that we have the power to change our own state, at will. Since I made this decision, I have been on an infinite mission.
I no longer fear cancer, we simply co-exist
2010, was the year my never ending desire to learn began. I grew a strong passion for nutrition. Living with someone who had cancer sparked this passion, as I wanted to know how cancer develops and how it can be prevented. Over the next 6 years my sole purpose was to immerse myself into learning everything I could about nutrition. Countless books and videos flooded my brain. I learned everything from corruption, to politics, to curing disease, preventing disease, understanding research, and so much more. I will never forget these years, I was alive, with a purpose, a mission, and had so much fun.
In 2016, I was very satisfied with my knowledge on nutrition, I felt I had mastered it, and started to wonder what was next for myself. I wasn’t fulfilled yet. I thought my journey to mastering nutrition would have given me that sense of fulfillment, but it didn’t. There was something more for me, I could feel it. I struggled for a few months, trying to discover my next step to take.
It wasn’t until I reflected on why I love my job as a personal trainer and nutritionist, and my role as a caregiver, did I discover my life purpose. This is when I had the epiphany, it was my passion for changing the live’s of other’s. As I reflected, and became more aware of this epiphany, I paid more attention to how else I could help my clients and my wife. I started realizing how stressed they were, and how their mindset and perspectives manifested their own stressful state.
Instead of succumbing to despair, I manifested my life purpose
In late 2016, I had the biggest paradigm shift of my life, and the biggest one I will ever have. This is when I discovered Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), and meditation.
I knew with all my heart, that these discoveries were the answer to my question, I could just feel it. I am thoroughly enjoying the journey thus far, and am eternally grateful for life’s journey up until now, as I would not have discovered why I am here without it.
I will be posting as much content as time will allow, about all that I have learned up until now, and am learning along my journey.
Allie is still here with us. We have stared cancer in the eye many times and told it to fuck off. It Listened
The Other Love Of My Life
This is our amazing dog Nacho. He was born on June 8, 2010. He is a mix of Shih Tzu, Lhasa Apso, Yorki, and a little bit of Jack Russel.
I have learned so much from him. The most important thing he has taught me, is unconditional love, and what is means to love unconditionally. It doesn’t matter if I am mad at him, I didn’t take him to the park that day, I didn’t pay much attention to him, he has always loved me the same, no exceptions.
The one part of my day I always look forward to, regardless of circumstance, is taking him to his “park park”. It is a great time for us to bond, and for me to steer away from any of life’s stresses, and practice mindfulness. Being at the park with him reminds me that we’re all one with each other, and with nature. There is no better feeling, and for the times I lose touch with myself, it breathes life back into me instantly.
Michael Neill – Michael is without a doubt my #1 mentor for my own personal development and also my coaching development. I first discovered Michael from reading his book Supercoach. His 2 best sellers are The Inside Out Revolution and The Space Within. I have since read all of his books, listened to his entire podcast, and watch numerous hours of video. He bases his teachings of off another mentor of mine, Sydney Banks, who has since passed away. You can read more about Sydney, and his gift to the world, below if you want to know more about what he taught that Michael has expanded upon.
Sydney Banks – I first heard about Sydney Banks through an understanding called the Three Principles that I first heard about through Michael Neill’s book Supercoach. I discovered Sydney after researching further into the Three Principles. Sydney was a small town welder that had no spiritual practice. On vacation one day a miracle happened, he had a spontaneous enlightenment experience that changed his life forever. This is what led him to The Three Principles understanding of the human experience. He has written several books on this understanding, unfortunately there isn’t many video clips as creating video wasn’t as popular 10-20 years ago as it is now.
Anthony Robbins – Tony is at the forefront of personal development. I am a huge fan of his, I have watched several hours of video from his seminars, and read all of his books. Much of what he teaches is based off of NLP, with his own spin on it. If you actually take the time to apply what he teaches, it will change your life forever, I speak from experience.
Leo Gura – I also discovered Leo on YouTube when the title of one of his videos caught my eye. His videos are not for everyone, they are extremely philosophical. You must have an extremely open mind to even begin to understand his videos. All of your current beliefs and perspectives will be brought into question. This is what I really like about Leo, he is able to speak the unspeakable, by putting words to subjects that seem in-explainable with words.
Alan Aragon – Alan is known for his infamous research review called “Nutrient timing revisited: is there a post-exercise anabolic window?“. I am subscribed to his monthly research review, in which he gives his professional feedback on a number of nutritional related studies each month. He breaks each study down to the core, unraveling every aspect of the study. He is a great resource for discovering perspectives you may have never even considered.
There are numerous other authority figures I think very highly of and have learned a great deal from. I have watched countless hours of video and read many books, learning from them. Although they are not a mentor, they deserve much recognition on the role they played in my development, for without them I wouldn’t know all I know today.
