Robert "Mestkever" Hoogeboom

This guy has more facial hair changes than most people have underwear changes! But whenever he is in the gym he is bound to be giving 100% no matter what the workout is. Leaves the ego at the door and just comes in and gives it all. A long time member he doesn't discriminate at what time he comes in, but usually making his entry in the afternoons. One of our many talented masters athlete that we have in the gym, he is always working to get better. Renowned for rarely wearing a shirt while working out!

Anything that hurts so good
