    I knew Rob from training at LA fitness. He was always the most focused trainer in the gym. I saw him heal through a number of serious injuries and operations over the years. Yeah I stayed focused.

    The last time I saw him I asked if his son Jack could walk. He said “he’s three years old! Time flies .”

    It’s hard to believe the time ran out for Rob. He was so alive and happy about being a family man. He was a good trainer, took good care of his clients, and maintained an outstanding physique it was hard to believe he was 49 years old.

    He was a good guy and he really added a lot at LA fitness!

    May his family be at Peace. He was true to his mission.

    The time I had working out with Rob on Girl time Tuesday was the best.
    I will miss him

  3. Billie Ohman says:

    I never met Robert.but knew of him and his family through his mother Marlene. She, of course, loved him and her grandchildren by him dearly. When she spoke of them. You could hear the joy and love in her voice I know he will be missed so very much by his entire family.

  4. Daisy Sandkamp says:

    I know Robert through his other half Krista! They have two amazing boys and he will be missed coming to the Apple valley LA FItness to get his boys from the love of his. He sure will be missed by those who know him best and his boys and Krista his everything! Peace be with Krista and her boys and also his family.

  5. Robert Slesinger says:

    I have known Rob for about 15 yrs. He was totally committed to his family, friends, and clients. A REALLY good guy. Loved his family. He will always be remembered and always be missed.

  6. Luke Dalchow says:

    I knew Rob from our days working together at LA Fitness. I’ve never met someone more passionate about fitness and received such trust and loyalty from their clients. He was just a person that you knew he had your best interest in mind. Very disarming personality and someone you just knew you could rely on. He will not be forgotten.

  7. Linda Perkins says:

    My dear friend and trainer. I will miss you everyday. You know how I didn’t like to train this 70 year old body but you always encouraged me and told me that this is what will keep me young, healthy and strong. I’ll keep it up but can’t imagine how I’ll make it through without all our political discussions.. I loved the fact that we were on the same page. I always wonder why God takes the good ones first. Knowing you for 10 years has been a great blessing to me. R.I.P. my dear friend.
    (Better known as your cool down. )

  8. Neil Perkins says:

    Ten years ago our daughter gave us gift certificates to do weight training with Rob. Little did we know that it would turn into a way of life for us. With out fail Rob would be at our door three times per week ready to go to work on our aging bodies. He was really good at his craft and I often thanked him for adding years to my life, because in my mind, I truly believed that. Thanks again my friend.

    We shared a lot of life together beyond weight training. Major events like him meeting Krista and becoming a family with the birth of their boys. Them buying their first home. He was here when several of our grandchildren came into this world. We did a couple Saints games together. He was there as I went from a busy working life to one of retirement. There were a lot of ‘high fives’ as his favorite president made him very happy. He shared his concern over his mother whenever she had health issues. We were friends.

    One of my favorite impressions of Rob’s dedication came last Fall after I broke a leg in a motorcycle crash. When I called him to let him know what happened he responded with “That’s only one leg that we need to work around. We have the rest of your body train. See you Monday”

    I found out this morning how difficult it is to do weight training without Rob orchestrating the hour. My iPad trainer app is no replacement for what Rob brought to the session. The iPad don’t get near as excited as you did when I did a 12 minute plank. Thank you for that………..
