Husband, Father, Entrepreneur, Author and Speaker, Dale Robinson has utilized his adversity to impact lives across the country.
After serving 10 years in federal prison, Dale has paved his own road of redemption. While incarcerated Dale found his passion for fitness. It was then, in the prison yard, that Dale’s ability to connect was revealed to him as he led a group of 40 men in a group workout. Dale knew that the impact he could have on the world would be tremendous.
Once home Dale faced the adversity of “checking the box” and struggled financially to provide for his family. He had a vision that he created in prison and knew that it was time to chase it.
It was not without trials that Dale reached success with his gym, G.U.R.U. Fitness. From his garage to his own location to now a franchise with multiple locations Dale’s dedication began to pay off.
Dale knew that he had a message to share so he took to the stage. He often says “Your gift is not for you”. He understood that his gift is to be used to serve and impact others.
His ability to connect with all walks of life has allowed him the grace to cover a multitude of topics. Whether it be overcoming adversity, resilience, leadership, cultivating culture and the 6 point S.E.R.R.V.O. method he uses to grow his business and brand — Dale speaks to impact.
Dale is one of the founders of The Wanda Joyce Robinson Foundation and is dedicated to serving the youth that has been impacted by incarceration. Dale and his wife Taylor live in Lexington, KY with their daughter Eliza. Dale spends time traveling to watch his youngest son play in the NFL while his eldest son follows his passions working in the field of criminal justice. Outside of spending time with his family, you can find Dale in the gym or serving in some capacity.
