Do You Struggle To Make Time For Health and Fitness Because Of Your Busy Schedule?

Alex Robles, MD

Hi, I’m Alex Robles, physician, health and fitness expert, and founder of the White Coat Trainer.  

I have an undergraduate degree in biology, completed medical school at Cornell University, and a 4 year OBGYN residency in New York.  I am now a fellow in Reproductive Endocrinology. 

I am extremely passionate about health and fitness and I have been studying it for over 10 years alongside my medical training.

I first became interested in fitness during my undergraduate studies while earning my undergraduate degree biology. I studied anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology, while learning how to apply these teachings to my own health and fitness. 

Once I started medical school, that’s when I also learned how difficult it is to maintain your health and fitness with a busy work schedule.

As an OBGYN resident, it is commonplace to work 80-90 hours a week, overnight shifts, and even 24 hour shifts. Because of this, I had to come up with numerous strategies to keep up with exercise and fitness with the little time free time I had

I am proud to say that despite my work schedule, I have had significant improvements in my lean muscle mass percentage, body fat percentage, overall strength, and even health markers as a resident physician.

That is why The White Coat Trainer exists.

It is my mission is to help you create and maintain a fitness centered lifestyle despite your busy schedule.

Brittany N Robles, MD, MPH

Hi, my name is Brittany Robles, the co-founder of The White Coat Trainer. I am a strength athlete and I have a dual degree in Medicine and Public Health and am currently a second year OBGYN resident in New York. 

My fitness journey began in medical school when I was 22 years old. Like most women, I had a preconceived notion that lifting weights would make me look too muscular, so my high school and college gym sessions were spent running on the treadmill, and becoming a master on the stairs. I stayed as far away from the weights as possible.

Over time, I learned about the importance of physical fitness, strength training, and proper nutrition during my medical and public health education. That is when I ditched the cardio machines and began focusing on getting stronger and building my cardiovascular health through outdoor biking.

I have competed in powerlifting competitions and participated in several bike tours – including the 50 mile Hudson Valley Ride.

Fitness has led me to create a whole new lifestyle. The confidence that I have gained both inside and outside the gym is the reason I am here today. I am very excited to share my experience, especially with all women who desire to look and feel better through fitness and nutrition.
