We would like to thank you for supporting Rob Decker in this year's competition. Your support enables our company to continue to contribute to Homes for Wounded Warriors and make a difference in the lives of disabled veterans and their families.


What first fueled your passion for fitness?

Honesty, it was my only healthy escape from my reality. I loved the community, friendships and friendly competition of being in the gym.

What words or mantra do you live by?

I want to inspire others. I want someone to say, ‘because of you, I didn’t quit’.

If you win, what will you do with the $20,000?

I plan on opening a community center that help other by providing fitness, community, recovery classes, and a faith based presence without judgment of forcing my beliefs on people. I just want to do love, compassion and empathy the way it supposed to be done. I would use the money toward that.
