Bob's BioBob is FIT’s resident voice of reason, analytical thinker, and nag. A second degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Bob is a life long athlete who manages his ADD/OCD through exhaustive exercise. While always passionate about sports, recent discoveries in the scientific community, coupled with fatherhood, fueled Bob’s passion for wanting to keep athletes safer without fundamentally altering the sports themselves. With his own athletic prime in the rear view, Bob looks forward to living vicariously through the sporting exploits of his amazing kids Lincoln and Kylie (FIT’s co-Chief Cuteness Officers). A lifelong Philadelphia Eagles fan, Bob refuses to answer the question of what he’d rather see: Success for FIT or an Eagles Super Bowl win. “Can’t I have both?” – Bob
