I am going to make it very simple. You need physical strength and mobility if you want to add value to your life regardless of where you are at.
STRENGTH IS FOR EVERYONE
There are usually two reasons why people come to me for their strength needs. They are either an athlete looking to get one leg up on the competition or a person that is trying to get a leg up in life.
The interesting thing about strength is that regardless of where you are we always begin the same way:
With a scientific approach.
Hi my name is Roberto Torralbas, and I want to give you an opportunity to receive the same quality training that until this point a very lucky few have received (usually my top tier pro athletes or a very few selected clients). At this point in my life I don’t work with just anyone. For me, I have to make sure that our goals align and that you are onboard with what it will require for me to give you results. Luckily for you, if you have the right mindset, I am really a stubborn person and I’ll go to the ends of the earth to get you results. Before I tell you what you will experience training with me, let me rewind a bit back to my journey into strength.
It all started with the dream of being a World Champion in Brazilian Jiu jitsu over a decade ago, and as I got closer to the dream becoming reality, I realized my competition was…
Steroids are illegal in a combat sport where you can cause real harm to an opponent. But the problem for most people nowadays has nothing to do with combat sports, it’s that you have all these fitness gurus telling people that their trick is discipline — when in reality is the syringe. We can talk about that another time.
I was very discouraged by the noticeable strength these people had and before you say it, I’ll say it for you …. Yes, technique can conquer all, but these athletes were also super technical. Luckily for me, as I mentioned before I never quit, so I started doing research and research about ways to become stronger and I ran across book titled: “Starting Strength” by Mark Rippetoe.
And all the sudden:
I SAW A LIGHTBULB GO ON.
The book is great and I recommend every single of my clients to get it, read it, and study it like I did. But understand this, and this is very important
READING A BOOK WON’T GET YOU STRONGER
GETTING UNDER A BARBELL WILL.
Due to my experience in the martial arts and how long it took me to reach mastery , I realized I needed help, a mentor when it came to the barbell. That’s where I met Jordan Stanton, an animal who taught me and continues to teach me to this day. I formed a friendship like the one I hope to form with you one day.
I started getting Stronger, I started winning against the steroid freaks, my athletes got stronger, but here is the real kicker…
My wife got pregnant and she got stronger during her pregnancy, gaining less weight and more muscle than her first pregnancy.
And my 62 year old mom, when I ran her though the training, also began to lose weight and move 100% better.
THIS IS REALLY POWERFUL STUFF!

Here is what Coach Joe has to say:
Here’s How Lifting Helped My Pregnant Wife…
“As an athlete, going through pregnancy the first time was a bit shocking.
After training and competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for 4 years I was used to my body having a certain amount of strength, mobility and movement.
But pregnancy is a whole new experience for your body, and for awhile, everything about it changes — your weight, your strength, your center of balance. You just have to go along for the ride.
It’s amazing and challenging, and 100% worth it … but it also requires work to get back to your previous level of fitness. I was able to lose all the weight, gain back my strength and resume competing in BJJ at the highest level… but it took time.
So when Roberto and I decided to have another baby last year, I knew exactly what I was getting myself into. And, there was one difference.
About 6 months before we decided to get pregnant, I started weight training with him, following the Starting Strength linear progression. I squatted, I deadlifted, I benched and I pressed, and I noticed that I was getting stronger… it was nice.
So when I did get pregnant, there was no question in my mind whether I would continue lifting. I knew I would. It was just how.
Roberto consulted his coach about how to go forward, and I continued throughout my pregnancy. I listened to my body and really focused on my form with lots of help from Roberto.
Anytime the weight didn’t go up, or something didn’t feel right, Roberto helped me with my form or adjusted the amount.
I gained 10 pounds less with our son Mateo than I had with our daughter Rosa… even though I was pregnant for 5 weeks longer.
I think the strength training had a lot to do with the difference.
I also had a very easy birth with a very short labor (although all moms know that no birth is exactly easy….). I have no idea if lifting had anything to do with it, but I can’t imagine that it hurts to be in great shape when facing a tremendously challenging physical task like giving birth.
Check out this video of me squatting 155 pounds 4×3 at 39 weeks pregnant. That was the last time I squatted before he was born just 10 days later. I also deadlifted and pressed to the end.
I restarted 6 weeks postpartum, and again, with Roberto’s careful help, I have been lifting ever since. This time I have less baby weight to lose than last time, and it is also coming off faster.
But more than weight loss, the biggest benefit of lifting postpartum, is feeling my strength returning — in particular to my core, which takes a major beating during pregnancy.”.
