Former resident authors ‘Wellness Toolbox’

Don Roberts is a fitness trainer and gym owner in Durango.

VALLEY — Former San Luis Valley resident Don Roberts has published a book, “Wellness Toolbox,” a complete guide about fitness and nutrition.

Now living in Durango, Roberts was born and raised on a ranch between Del Norte and Monte Vista. He attended Del Norte schools, K-12 and graduated in 1985. His parents grew up in Alamosa and he has siblings and friends in all three communities.

Based on 27 years of experience as a personal fitness trainer, nutritional coach, weight management consultant, bodybuilder, and gym owner, Roberts illuminates fact versus myth through thoughtful science-based explanations, animated personal stories, concise tips, historical context and humorous cartoons.

Because folks are bombarded with often faulty information on nutrition and fitness, Roberts felt compelled to share the knowledge and wisdom he has gleaned from the past three decades advising clients of all types — middle-aged men and women, grandmas and grandpas, teenage boys and girls, amateur and professional athletes, couch potatoes, and weekend warriors.

Roberts will show readers that the secret to achieving their fitness and nutrition goals is about incremental lifestyle choices.

“It’s time to thrive! Open your Wellness Toolbox to improve your physical health, mental well-being, and your life,” he said.

The book can be previewed on Amazon. Contact Roberts at (970) 749-8663; 381 S. Camino del Rio, Durango, CO 81303; or
