These are words from people who have taken the time to talk about how their life has changed with the help of Robbie…..
I first met Ann Marie and Robbie at a free seminar that Robbie offered. Of course I remember Robbie from being an exercise guru at Bally Fitness many years ago. She spoke about her life, family and the difference clean eating had made in her life. She then told us about a six week course on healthy eating that she offered. I knew at that moment that I needed to do it, but had no idea the impact it would make! You see, I’ve tried to lose 20 pounds for 20 years… I am an Italian girl and have always loved to eat, especially bread and pasta! However this past year has been extremely difficult for me. I was a nurse 40 years and have lots of spinal issues… but this past year, I was told that I needed back and neck surgery or would be walking with a cane within a year. They also told me I had nerve damage in both legs. After a couple of more opinions, the last doctor told me I did not need surgery… I felt like I was given a new lease on life and this was the way to change my health….to learn how to eat right and finally lose the weight… the information in the classes have been invaluable!! I especially loved the supermarket tour. Together with Robbie‘s wisdom and Ann Marie‘s love, acceptance and great recipes, it has been a fabulous class!! I would encourage if you’re wavering, to JUST DO IT…This is the best money you’ll ever spend on yourself… this is just not a six week program…this is a new way of life!!! I have learned how important it is to eat well, eat for your intestines and your health. I feel better, look better and I’m never going back!! Thank you Robbie and Ann Marie…Love and blessings, Loretta (May 2019)
Robbie – I would like to extend my appreciation to you for your assistance in helping me in the journey in regaining my health. At the end of 2019, I found myself in a place in which I was very dissatisfied. I was drinking too much alcohol and I was overweight. Personal tragedy had hit our household over the last 5 years, and I had come to the realization that I had not been relying on God but on the world. I have trust in you, so I bought your book “The Raw Truth Recharge”. I wanted to share my testimony that I have put my faith in God to regain my health. I have lost 31 pounds and my drinking has been reduced to a minimal amount. Thank you for sharing your beliefs and your wisdom. Your system for a healthy lifestyle is easy and enjoyable.
God bless and thank you,
Brenda Robbie ~ you are an amazing person. What a blessing you are in my life! I look forward to growing stronger in my health and faith through this walk we are on together. As I reflect on my past 12 weeks, I would never have been able to believe I could ever loose 30 pounds, get my body fat down 12 points and be increasing my weights at the gym. My health has improved significantly and I feel wonderful each day. I can run around my house and no more Rheumatoid Arthritis drugs! The Doctor said I’m in remission! Amazing!!! You are one of God’s greatest blessings to me!
Thank you, Jan (March 2020)
“I am a regular at both the Yoga and Raw Cuts classes. Both these classes have made a big difference in flexibility, body shaping, and increased metabolism. Not to mention just overall feeling better!
I then joined Robbie’s 21 Day Challenge healthy eating class. The class was so informative that I continued on with Robbie’s 8-week healthy eating class. This class was very enlightening, as I thought I was eating healthy. After making a few dietary changes, I started to notice immediate results. The inflammation I had due to a wrist injury subsided. I had more energy, I felt better, but most of all I lost 35 pounds!!!. . . .Thank you Robbie for your inspiration!!!

Our friend (Coach~ Mentor~ Educator) … Robbie Raugh! It’s a blessing, a privilege, to be under the leadership, guidance, and instruction of such a knowledgeable woman. One with a passion to teach us how to eat healthy, exercise, and manage our lives for betterment, for quality living, while combating diseases, illnesses, sleep disorders, depression, etc. The best part .. it’s so much fun! The class time seems to fly by in just a few minutes, but it’s at least 90 minutes of a power packed agenda. She is passionate about this commitment and it shows. She radiates the “picture of health”, energy bursting forth, and a spirit of love that fills the entire room. I cannot wait to get my hands on her book when it’s released. I am sure it’s the first of many to follow. Like I said, again .. it’s a blessing Robbie to have you leading our journey. I enjoy my fellow classmates at Buffalo Spine and Sports Medicine. It’s an informative group, with a team like spirit. Thank you for answering the calling God has placed on your life. He sure knew the right girl to pick for the job!

I was broken, Hope?…LOST! But God had the day as He always does. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart…Proverbs 3:5a…then you will have healing for your body and strength for your bones” Proverbs 3:8 NLT.
I had heard of the Raw Truth Recharge on WDCX and ever the skeptic felt it was bunk, even though I knew of some people it had helped. At Kingdom Bound Festival 2014 there were Raw Truth seminars to attend and I was very much set against going, I could do this on my own, even though I’ve tried other “diets” in the past, but…God had a plan. He drew my wife Laurie who can be persuasive and me to the WDCX tent on Monday to hear Robbie, the passion, conviction and knowledge with which Robbie spoke hit me hard and brought us back Tuesday and again on Wednesday. Robbie took time to speak to us afterward each day and encouraged us to attend an upcoming seminar, our discussions were emotional as she saw the pain of lost hope and being as Robbie says “Sick and thick and tired’! We attended the seminar and enrolled in the Recharge…WOW…a commitment! But…the Raw Truth Recharge has changed our family’s lives, through the Recharge Protocol I’ve lost over 60 lbs., over 8 inches from my waist and my body fat has decreased over 12 pts…over 35%! My taste palette changed dramatically as Robbie says “You eat what you crave and you crave what you eat”. Through the Recharge and God’s grace I have been healed from diabetes and hypertension and am able to live life for Him to the fullest. My prescription medications have been decreased by 85%! so we will pay someone, somehow, what an investment the Raw Truth Recharge was. I never imagined that this dramatic lifesaving change could take place in 12 weeks, the mountain was too high, the weight too much, the disease too embedded. But God brought it low, with Robbie’s guidance on nutrition, an exercise routine and the choices we make, it is possible. Thank you Father for drawing us to the Seminars at KB and bringing Robbie into our lives…our hope was renewed and we’ve been restored!
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!

“The Raw Truth Recharge is changing my life! In the first four months, I lost 52 pounds and what’s more, I’m celebrating 30% (11 point) reduction in body fat! I’ve lost 8 inches off my waist, dozens off my thighs, calves, hips and chest and more than 2 inches of my neck! That’s a big deal, because the size of my neck is part of the reason I was diagnosed with severe obstructive sleep apnea. For many years I have been tethered to a CPAP machine when I sleep. Now, I’m sleeping comfortably, no snoring, and no more machine! Robbie Raugh knows what she’s talking about! If you do what she says, it will change your life too! I have way more energy and I feel fantastic! I’m eating lots of healthy foods and I’m enjoying regular exercise. I have 35 pounds to go and I look forward to the day I’m the size God actually created me to be. You can do it too!”

This women just lost 58 lbs and transformed her health by following what I teach and preach. She didn’t believe what I said that she could change her health, but she needed a wheel chair when I met her. She left my class not only out of the wheel chair but able to push it around the block to get exercise! She said:”My next pic will be at the 85 pounds lost mark and I am getting excited. Than on to 100 pounds. Many say older people can not lose weight well God has proven that wrong. I am never hungry and love the food and smoothies. I am learning to cook healthier. No need for the wheelchair to shop or visit doctors. I am not well… yet my life is 1000% better and I am able to do my own housework, care of myself and make church every Sunday ;often walking to it. I am so glad and thankful for your teachings. NEVER STOP no matter how many like me you meet. God is using you in a mighty way. I love you Robbie.”
“Robbie’s passion for a healthy mind, body and spirit are contagious! I’ve followed Robbie since the 1980’s and have received a continuous education on fitness and healthy eating during her classes, through her 12 week healthy eating program, & on line from her blog, website and newsletters. Not even in medical school did I learn this level of science in nutrition and disease prevention that I can now share with patients and friends. Thank you Robbie for keeping me current in this life changing & life saving discipline!”

“Thank you – thank you – thank you!!!
I just have to share this with you. Getting ready to take my yearly trip to visit my snow bird parents in FL. In years past I’d be in tears by now trying on summer clothes / bathing suits while packing. Well, nothing fits, BUT it’s because everything is WAY TOO BIG!!!!! I am truly so thankful for everything I’ve learned from you!!! I’m trading in my frumpy skirt style bathing suit bottoms in for something that covers much less!!! Woohoo!! ~ Rebecca F.
“As I write this on the eve of our daughter’s wedding, I am reflecting back 1 year when she announced her engagement & as God’s plan…I met Robbie Raugh.
My husband John & I had decided to make “2013” our year to “go into training” & get in shape for our daughter’s wedding. We have always
had gym memberships & were all about cardio, cardio, cardio. (however our bodies did not reflect gym memberships) We never tried to change or paid much attention to what we ate unless we were on a “diet” which never lasted long. As health care professionals you would think we would not only know better but do better?
Thru Robbie we learned many things, preventing disease is our #1 goal! Some other Robbieisms, “abs are made in the kitchen”. It’s all about choices, balancing healthy eating, along with weight training & cardio exercise. Muscle fuels metabolism, by building muscle we both reset & jump started our metabolism. By making it a lifestyle change & not a “diet” , John lost 60 lbs. & I lost 30 lbs. We not only feel good, we look good!
After a minor surgery I was unable to exercise for 1 month. I was miserable, for the first time in my life I actually missed going to the gym. That’s when I realized I had a transformation! It truly was a lifestyle change for me. For a moment I felt like I didn’t know myself? I actually said out loud…”who are you”? I realized losing the weight for the wedding was just a bonus & our real Blessing was, we were healthy & preventing disease. The Raugh Truth has truly been a Blessing in our lives!
Thank you Robbie for all you do” ~ Tina L.
“Robbie ~ you are an amazing person. What a blessing you are in my life! I look forward to growing stronger in my health and faith through this walk we are on together. As I reflect on my past 12 weeks, I would never have been able to believe I could ever loose 30 pounds, get my fat numbers down 12 percent and be increasing my weights at the gym to 7.5 pounds. My health has improved significantly and I feel wonderful each day. I can run around my house and no more RA drugs! Amazing!!! You are one of God’s greatest blessings to me! Thank you Jan (12 week class)”
Never Give Up
I have been taking Robbie’s Kick Boxing. It is by far one of the best and
Rewarding work outs I’ve taken. It works every part of your body to the max.
After taking her class, the energy, experience you will never stop.

“I couldn’t let the night end without telling you how much I have enjoyed
the past 13 weeks (Thanksgiving week was a bonus!). While I felt I was
already a healthy eater, I learned that healthy eating wasn’t exactly what
I thought was. I forgot that food has flavor, is fun to prepare and is what
we need to nourish the body, mind and spirit. Since meeting you, I have
found myself to be more relaxed, able to focus on the important things in
life and to also tell a story to others who struggle day to day.
As a school administrator, my job is to be an instructional leader, to
motivate people who don’t necessarily buy into what is best or right for
kids. I counsel parents and kids, feed 550 mouths twice daily, wipe noses
and mop floors. And I have to be happy each and every day whether I feel
like being happy or not. I would find myself hiding my aches and pains
because someone else always had it worse than me. After doing Transitions
infused with “Robbie’ reality”, I have found that it is easy to be happy,
to feel good, to not hurt, and to not view some of my tasks as chores. I
thank God every day for giving me the opportunity to make a difference in
someone’s life for I have a very different perspective these days. You have
been an both and inspiration and and instructional leader of sorts by being
my coach…and not just a transitions coach, because it is so much more
than that. You have been a teacher, a friend, a comedian, a reality tv star
and chef. I can only thank you for all you have done for me, and for my
family, as they have been by my side for the past three months. I am
excited to continue with the 12 month plan…and wish it was a real
possibility to work out with you at BAC (someday I will get there!). Thank
you SO MUCH for providing me the opportunity to be a better person for all
in my quality world. You are a beautiful person inside and out! It so isn’t the weight loss, it’s the whole package!”
Until our next class, I wish you health, happiness and peace.
