Rob Piparo, better known as Pip, is a Lieutenant with the City of New Brunswick Fire Department, located in New Brunswick, NJ and a Paramedic with Raritan Bay Medical Center in Perth Amboy, NJ.

Pip holds certifications as a Firefighter 1 & 2, NJ Level 1 Fire Instructor, Extrication, High Angle and Confined Space Technician, NJ and National Registry Paramedic, and Crossfit Level I.
Pip has always been passionate about fitness. He spent several years running half marathons and training strictly with kettlebells until he discovered Crossfit. He is currently a Coach at Iron Crossfit in North Brunswick, NJ . He has also completed a marathon and an Olympic distance triathlon with hopes of someday being able to compete in an ironman distance.
Pip’s passion for training lead him to the 555 Fitness page, where he quickly developed a friendship with Larry, its owner. After several months of back and forth banter, Larry asked Pip if he wanted to join the team. One could say the rest is history, but for now, we will just say we are too busy making history. email – firstname.lastname@example.org
