Rob Lipsett: 'My mum comes from absolutely nothing and has been through a lot. She's one of the toughest of people I know'
The social influencer and fitness expert chats to Elle Gordon about his favourite people, places and things.
My mother. She comes from absolutely nothing, has been through a lot, and is one of the toughest of people I know. She has taught me to never give up, and never complain.
Too many to think of! I believe life should be spent making memories, as when it is all said and done, that is what you will be left with.
The moment of the day
Without a doubt, I am a morning person. I love waking up in the morning, planning out my day and having a good coffee. I feel I am at my most productive in the morning, and this is when I get the majority of my work done and come up with my best ideas
Lose Yourself by Eminem. From the beat, to the lyrics, to the story it tells.
Probably Fight Club. I love the moody cinematography and the underlying message. There are also some amazing quotes in it, too.
Me! You've got be your own hero, ha ha!
The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle. Teaches you how to be a bad ass, and how to stop caring about stuff that doesn't matter.
I love a good suit, but I also like anything that just fits well - some of the time, when I am looking my best, I am wearing a plain black T-shirt that cost hardly anything, and a pair of ripped jeans.
I think a good watch can complete an outfit.
My DJI Mavic Drone. It really helps me capture any place I ever visit and it is a hit at any social event. Whenever I take it out and fly it, everyone is always amazed!.
The pet hate
I'm not a neat freak, but I dislike when people are messy and unorganised. I keep my apartment, car and office clean, as I believe this helps with productivity and thinking clearly.
I'm very fortunate to have an amazing circle of friends, who have been with me since the start. All of them support me in everything I do, but they're not a bunch of 'yes' men. They will give me constructive criticism when needs be.
The piece of advice
Worrying is pointless. If something goes wrong, worrying and losing your cool does not help. Accept what has happened, and own it. Always look at the glass being half full rather than half empty.
Australia. I am planning on going again soon, as when it is chilly in Ireland, it is warm and sunny there. Thailand would come in a close second.
The beauty product
The only products I really use are a matt clay for my hair, and a decent moisturiser. I believe if you want to actually look good and not rely on a bunch of external factors, you should sort out your sleep, diet, training regime and lifestyle.
I love something icy like a frozen mango margarita.
I really like The Dean, it has a cool vibe to it. At the same time, I have stayed in some dodgy hostels when travelling, and have had the most fun in these places.
House Dublin. They always treat me so well in there; the staff are absolutely amazing.
I think Elon Musk is a boss. He is like the real-life Iron Man.
Aside from training and nutrition, I am falling in love with MMA - it is like an art form and there is so much to learn. I also am a huge camera nerd, and am constantly learning about photography, videography and editing. This also massively helps my businesses.
The part of my body
The gun show.
I am good at not taking anything personally, and I kinda just get on with things.
I am quite impatient, but, to be honest, this just makes me get things done faster.
No doubt it is Aventus by Creed. I don't know what they put in that stuff, but it is magical.
Sushi, pizza and frozen yogurt, all in the same evening, one after the other.
