Terrier Coaches




Robert Pennino, founder and head coach of Terrier Fitness, began coaching athletes over 15 years ago. An experienced athlete himself, Robert saw success as a baseball player with the University of Tampa before ultimately transitioning to endurance sports, where his passion truly accelerated. Robert knows not only what it takes to be a successful athlete, but also a successful coach. With life-long exposure to many coaches in his athletic career, Robert experienced a breadth of coaching styles that ultimately informed his own, unique approach. 


What sets Robert apart? Robert understands that coaching is not a one-size-fits-all method, and that people are motivated in different ways. In order to help his athletes succeed, he taps into those differences. For Robert, true success has not been about priding over one unique coaching style, but rather about tailoring his tried and true techniques to the unique qualities of his athletes. 


While Robert’s coaching method is adaptable, Terrier Fitness is founded on one steadfast philosophy: we work hard to reach fitness goals, but always have fun doing it!


No matter how big or small your fitness goal may be -- whether it’s a big race, setting a new Personal Record, learning a new sport, or striving for a healthier lifestyle -- working towards that goal will always require dedication. At Terrier Fitness, we have mutual accountability. At the heart, it's about camaraderie, support, and joy through fitness.
