He has toured over 100 countries and offered seminars to over 3 million people throughout his long career.

It has awarded over 2,000 grants to various health and human service organizations. Robbins has 4 children.
Tony Robbins’s Diet
Robbins is a proponent of the ‘Fit for Life’ diet created by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond. This diet focuses on fresh vegetables and fruits, particularly ones that have a high water content. It is low on meat and animal products including dairy. Robbins believes that seventy percent of your intake should come from ‘live’ foods, ones containing mostly water. Food combining is another important component of this diet, such as eating fruit on an empty stomach and not eating proteins with carbohydrates. Robbins backed off eating fish exclusively after discovering dangerously high levels of heavy metals in his blood.
- Low Protein (Plant-based or Fish) 15% 15%
- Medium Fat 30% 30%
- High Quality Carb 55% 55%
Things like growth hormones, pesticides, heavy metals and antibiotics in foods should all be avoided.

Tony Robbins’s Fitness Routine
Aerobic Energy Gives You Power
Robbins says aerobic exercise is critical for health and energy.
If you’re just starting out, Robbins recommends 30 minutes of aerobic exercise such as walking, running, swimming, biking, etc., 3-5 times per week.
Know Your Ideal Heart Rate
You want to hit your target training zone, which is 180 minus your age.
Keep It Interesting
Robbins advises mixing things up, changing your environment, listening to music, or meeting up with friends to motivate yourself to stick with it.
HIIT It Hard
Not surprisingly, Robbins doesn’t have a ton of time to workout, and so he squeezes a high-intensity workout into just 15 minutes.
Remember to Breathe
Oxygen is essential to good health and remaining calm. Robbins uses a technique called ‘power breathing’: Inhale for a count of 1; hold your breath for a count of 4; exhale for a count of 2.
Robbins’ HIIT Routine
Once or twice a week, Robbins does his high intensity interval training (HIIT). It’s fast, but grueling.
Do a few high-intensity rounds of chest presses, leg presses, and core pulls.
Follow the HIIT sequence with 4 minutes of ROM Quick Gym which works you both aerobically and anaerobically.
End of Routine
Robbins ends his routine with 5 minutes in the sauna, followed by a cold water plunge.

Tony Robbins’s Lifestyle
Manage Your Mind
Robbins believes directing your thoughts is as important to good health as any exercise regimen. He schedules time into his day to assess his thoughts and feelings.
Stop the Poisoning
Robbins believes that the average diet is highly acidic and poisoning our body. He wants us all to become aware of what we’re putting into our body and mind, detox, and empower ourselves to take back control.
Robbins strongly supports moving around regularly. This is especially important if you have a desk job, which is a lot of us.
Align Your Body
Poor posture or misalignment affects your health and your mood. Massage, chiropractic and at-home stretches can all provide structural support to keep you feeling your best, physically and mentally.
