Anthony Rhoades is a living example of what someone who is hard working and determined can achieve. He started from the bottom and made his way straight up to the top in the personal training industry. He is known as the celebrity trainer in Miami, working with the likes of David Grutman, Grant Cardone, Rick Ross, Matt Zingler and Steve Aoki. His goal is to touch as many lives as he can, to show everyone that even successful individuals who have very busy schedules still find the time to prioritize their health and fitness. All that it takes is 45 to 60 minutes of someone’s day and they will be on their way to a fit and healthy lifestyle.
Success in the personal training industry did not come easy to Anthony. In his early years, he aspired to become a football player and suffered numerous set back injuries. He worked long hours in commercial gyms during the day and did labour jobs at night. Unfortunately, over time he also experienced some harsh family problems, leaving him to fight with depression, anxiety and addiction. Despite everything he went through, he was determined to put in the hard work required to work towards his goals.
He became obsessed with everything about personal training. He considers himself self taught, as he learned all about anatomy, the body on a cellular level, movement and nutrition through books, grabbing anything and everything he could on each topic to read. He took each and everyday day in the gym as an opportunity to learn more. Over time, he established a respected name for himself. Working with high end celebrities, he learnt there is no room for error. Each program he writes must be concise, efficient and effective in order for his clients to see results and value in his training. His clients can prove the success of his programs, in just over a year, Anthony has been responsible for the body transformation of David Grutman, reducing his body weight from 232 lbs right down to 200 lbs.
Within 10 years of experience and training under his belt, he has established a brand that is recognized across the world. He is known to specialize in working exclusively with the highest net worth entrepreneurs and celebrities that visit or live in Miami.
One thing that sets Anthony apart from a lot of other people in the industry is his work ethic. At a young age, his mother taught him that in order to achieve your goals you must work tirelessly at them. Every morning Anthony is up at 4 am, beginning his own training at 4:15 am and on the road to his first client by 5:15 am.
