Testimonials from professional athletes and industry experts

Over the years I have worked with many successful people and all have inspired me with their wisdom and achievements. Many have become mentors. Below is a selection of testimonials written for me by some of the world’s most accomplished fitness/bodybuilding athletes, businesspeople, scientists and sporting personalities.  


It has been my great pleasure over recent
years to work with noted author and respected personal trainer David Robson. As a reader of David’s articles it is, to me, evident his
approach to physical fitness and wellness is
a sound one. As a researcher myself it is heartening to see David’s willingness to leave
no stone unturned in providing balanced, research-based, yet entertaining, articulate commentary on health and fitness matters. His ability to go beyond surface issues to glean
facts that would otherwise be overlooked is commendable. A recent project we worked on paid tribute to the great bodybuilding pioneer
and health and fitness icon Ben Weider and this has since become a highly regarded work.
Thank you David for your efforts, and I hope
to work with you on future projects

David Robson has clearly established himself as
a veteran journalist of the iron game. For years, he has been writing articles on the topics of bodybuilding and exercise science in a straightforward, informative, and unflinching manner. He has a great talent for cutting
through the bull; he's able to deliver useful and interesting information in an organized and thoughtful manner. His numerous contributions are a credit to the web site, and they have helped to cement its place as
the premier online source of information for bodybuilding and weight training in general.

My hat goes off to David Robson for writing the best two Dan Lurie interviews that were ever written in my 65 years in the body building field.

Bravo****5 Stars.

David's knowledge in the fitness field is truly outstanding. David has the highest excellent
training experience in the universe. I am
proud to call David Robson a true fiend.

David, you are the best.

Dan Lurie
Old Time BODYBUILDER and America's
Most Muscular Man

Dan Lurie America's most muscular man

In our wacky world of muscle, meeting Dave
Robson in 2006 was a very positive experience.
He had contacted me for an interview for I liked the way Dave allowed
for freedom of expression. Subsequently, I began reading more of his material and eventually came to reference some of his work. He has the ability to extract both a depth and breadth of information from his subjects.

When I was faced with the task of completing
my own book and offered the honourable task of writing the autobiography of Dan Lurie, I found myself in somewhat of a quandary. Dan was tenacious in his drive to complete his book and have me do it, but I was extremely pressed to complete my own project, which had been
dragging on.

I knew a light bulb went on in Dan's head when
I suggested that he ask Dave to take on the project. Dave had already conducted a number
of very in-depth interviews from Dan and I thought he was already primed for the task.
After being made privy to much of the original draft, I had become convinced that Dan made the right decision. I probably could not have completed as good of job with Dan as Dave
had done.

What perhaps impressed me most about Dave was the fact that he carried through while still conducting his everyday, busy work schedule, which included more extensive interviews, large detailed articles, additional book projects, not to mention maintaining his own workout schedule and a great natural physique. To top it all off, he is also a very seasoned coach and trainer who has brought many to their own optimum health. It takes an amazing mind and heart to conduct oneself in such a manner.

I perceive Dave Robson as a modern-day Physical Culturist, honest in his way, balanced in body/mind/spirit, and an enormous bright light in an often dark and questionable industry.

Now that I know David, I can see the dedication, passion and professionalism in his work. As a professional athlete I am very dedicated to what I am doing, so it is good to see others like David who follow their passion. To me the body is a work of art, and when it is developed properly the work is beautiful. Thanks to David's interview with me on, people are better able to see exactly what it is like being a female bodybuilder, in my case, a woman with muscles who is also beautiful. Thank you again David for your support and for opening peoples’ eyes to women's bodybuilding.

David Robson is a fine journalist whose work I first came to know on, a website for bodybuilding, fitness, nutrition and sports training. David's many interviews and features showed a fine talent for bringing out the diverse and sometimes-difficult personalities he would query. David has often been able to elicit new and revelatory information from people, or gain access to interview personalities who otherwise have not been accessible before. His interviews always enlighten.

I got to know David personally through my involvement as an advisor and consultant on Dan Lurie's autobiography for which David is the co-author along with Dan. I have found David to be an extremely conscientious, diligent, persevering writer who, along with his obvious talent, displays a great drive to continue to work on the manuscript while seeking improvement at all times. He has the necessary quality of any good writer: he is never satisfied and strives to improve the material and his work at all times.

David's personal qualities of integrity, humility, responsibility and easy-going friendship always come through. Despite the difficulties and setbacks that might mount on any writing project, particularly a long one such as a book, David always manages to keep an even keel emotionally and has a friendly word of encouragement for others.

David and I worked together to complete a
10-article series based on my Growth Stimulus Training program. Growth Stimulus Training is
'my baby' and I am glad that I worked with
David, as the experience was very professional, timely, and polite. 

Although we are across the world from each other, it seemed like we were neighbors. His communication was excellent and his ability to help convey my ideas in our series was a huge positive for me.

In my opinion, David produces great material and also runs his business in a professional manner. Many people will do one of those things well. David does both!

David, I just wanted to say that I sincerely appreciate and have enjoyed working with you on the articles you have done on me. You are very professional, courteous and have a true genuine passion for fitness! I enjoyed answering the questions you asked as I thought they were a great way of getting the most pertinent information out to those who want to know about the athletes and what makes them tick. I think you also have a true gift as a writer and, again, such a passion for fitness in general, which makes you a very enthusiastic journalist who captures people’s attention. It’s always enjoyable to read one of your articles or an interview you have done with an athlete.
