Robin is an OCB drug-free bikini competitor and IPF/CPU competitive powerlifter in the 47 kg (103.6 lb.) class. Robin competes on stage at 105 lb. and maintains an off-season bodyweight of 110-115 lb. She has posted a 176 lb. squat, 116 lb. bench press and 270 lb. deadlift at Canadian Powerlifting Nationals in 2015, finishing with a Wilks score of 343. Her best all-time gym lifts include a 195 lb. squat and 130 lb. bench press. Currently she has put powerlifting on hold to pursue more specific bikini bodybuilding training.
Robin recently earned a silver medal at the 2015 CPU Canadian Powerlifting Nationals, competed at the OCB New York State Natural (taking second place in open and novice) and is now preparing for the 2016 California Muscle Mayhem.
Robin earned her Bachelor's of Science at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. She began her undergraduate degree in the sciences (microbiology and biochemistry), switched gears to pursue a BEng in mechanical engineering for two years earning a 4.0 GPA, then resumed her science degree in biochemistry and metabolism. She has a natural inclination for analyzing mechanical systems, including human kinematics as her training in physics and engineering carry over to the field of biomechanics. Robin is currently studying to write her NSCA-CSCS. She wishes to pursue graduate studies in biomechanics to combine her love for engineering and exercise science.
To compliment to her formal and self-sought education, Robin has acquired years of combined practical experience through training and coaching. She has coached top-level natural bikini and figure competitors as well as USAPL nationally qualified powerlifters. She aspires to empower other women to become body- and self-confident while achieving their fitness, competitive and academic goals.
