Having spent half his life as a professional wrestler, the transition to fatherhood was no sweat for New Jersey native Robbie E (real name Rob Strauss)—even if it meant having twins.
“I decided that no matter what, I was going to make it work,” says the dad of 11-month-old Cash and Carter, who’s taking that promise to the next level with his new role as the “Dad Bod Destroyer” for Canadian Muscle & Fitness.
The weekly online video series stars Robbie E (as well as Cash and Carter) in a series of at-home workouts geared towards fathers who are finding it hard to find time for physical fitness.
“A lot of dads end up making excuses,” Robbie E says.
