He also has over 1,000 wins as an athlete and coach. These records and accomplishments by Rob Powell set in motion today’s lesser and safer events of multi-sport races, obstacle course races, and crossfit competitions.

For many years law enforcement officers, military elite, and MMA fighters have sought out Coach Powell in gyms, fitness centers and even public schools for martial arts training, conditioning and tactics training. He has also coached junior high, high school, college and professional athletes in several sports. With all these credentials Rob Powell created The WFC Workout, The Proven Worlds Fittest Workout, see for more details.

Media outlets internationally have called Rob Powell “The World’s Fittest Man” (a title once held by Bruce Lee), “The World’s Toughest Man”, “The Best Athlete in History” (since that is what world records measure), as well as “Pound for Pound the Strongest Athlete and Fighter in History”. Rob has also been called “The Best Personal Trainer and Conditioning Coach on the Planet”. When asked about all of this Rob laughed at it all and said, “That’s flattering, but that is the record keepers claims, not my claims, and how did they measure all of that?”.
Rob retired from competition in 2012, and still works with military, law enforcement, the public, athletes and occasionally teaches and coaches if you can find him.
