SparkPoints: 27,392

Fitness Minutes: 2,081

My Goals:
I would like to lose a pound or two a week by following a more healthy lifestyle regarding both my diet and my physical routine.

My Program:
I work with a terrific Personal Trainer twice each week doing Cardiac Phase 3 rehab. She has me do both cardio and strength work. If you're in Birmingham and looking for help, let me know and I'll connect you with Andrea!!

I try hard to do 30 minutes of cardio on the other days of the week [but don't always make that happen, I'll admit].

Personal Information:
I'm Robbie Grier.

I grew up in Gastonia, NC. After college, I moved to Charlotte. Later I moved with work to Atlanta, South Florida, North Florida, New Orleans, and now Birmingham, AL.

I had open heart surgery in May 2012. I have bounced back pretty good. I'm working on keeping a focus on my weight/nutrition along with increasing my physical activity level.

Other Information:
I love all types of music from Pop to Rock to Country and Western to Bluegrass to Opera to Classical to . . . [Well You Get The Idea]!!

Some of my favorite authors include: C. S. Lewis, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry David Thoreau, Sara Paretsky, Scott Turow, John Grisham, and Sue Grafton. My favorite set of books are the stories of James Herriot. I find his stories about his years as a country vet and the animals he treated (and their owners) to be fascinating.

My movie tastes are pretty varied. Iím a big James Bond fan (yeah I think Sean Connery was the best). However, when asked to name my favorite movie, I almost always say either Brian's Song (the story of Brian Piccolo's life and death from cancer - the original one with James Caan and Billy Dee Williams), What's Up Doc? (a hilarious Barbra Streisand/Ryan O'Neal romantic/comedy), or Braveheart [depending on my mood at the time of the question].
