ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Robert Bullock grew up on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi giving him his southern roots. At an early age Robert possessed a strong interest in anything fashion related. With his drive and passion he truly is a self-taught designer, with skills of draping, pattern making and sewing.
In 2009, wanting to reach a broader audience, Robert launched Robert Bullock Bride. This allowed Robert to design more gowns at an affordable price and bring joy to Brides who could not afford a Couture Gown. Without compromising style, he is able to give a Couture look with a timeless, elegant feel. Robert Bullock Bride has been his most successful venture in his career to date.

Which exercise(s) would you recommend for brides who desire to target their arms for strapless gowns?
-Cable straight arm pull down from knees: balancing on knees forces you to keep your core engaged while focusing on your back as you pull down and shoulders and chest as you resist up
-Supine Kettle Bell Pullovers: on a bench, laying on your back, hold the kettle bell over your chest. Slowly lower the kettle bell behind your head towards the ground. Keeping a microbend in the elbows allows for the chest and triceps to stretch back to their full potential. As you pull the kettle bell back over your chest, all muscles in your “armpit” area will begin to engage
Which exercise(s) would you recommend for brides who desire to focus on mid-section and lower body for mermaid silhouettes?
-Planks, all kinds of planks!
What is the best exercise for brides who would like to either lose weight or desire full-body toning?
-Coco’s Signature Cardio Barre Class can burn up to 600 calories in one hour. At the same time, it rips your arms and midsection to perfection and on top of that, rounds your booty to perfection!
Franco’s is an all inclusive boutique gym with full access to state of the art cardio and strength equipment. They offer over 60 classes a week in three different private exercise studios. To enroll in your next fitness class, contact Franco’s here.
