His personal philosophy is to be his best in every single moment, having a clear picture of what that looks like for himself and always striving to be better than the day before. Sartori says, “Basketball for me has been such a great teacher of life and I am still driven to be better than I was yesterday, after all these years!”
As a player, he is a tough competitor first, and values the necessity for clear communication and a solid work ethic to stimulate and drive his team-mates. Sartori has the inner ability to focus and find the intellectual drive to effectively lead his team, while ensuring he instigates a program for effective recovery between sessions. It is this ability that has seen him continue to play his sport at an elite level for many years.
He loves the ethos that being part of team inspires in him and states, “the culture, camaraderie and ability of a group to come together in a mission-minded manner is what drives me the most.” It is this inspiration that has driven the success of Sartori and the teams he leads.
Off the court, Robbie is married with twin daughters, and owns a smash repair business yet he makes the time to ensure his fitness regime involves regular gym visits and shooting hoops as often as family life allows.
Robbie believes in ensuring the whole body is in peak condition before undertaking any physical activity and has developed his own business targeting fitness and strength, Flowstate Performance. His program assists athletes to implement high performance strategies to ensure they can capably achieve their sporting potential. This is actioned conditioning programs specific to their sport, examining sports psychology principles and education for improved individual and team performances, mental skill development, team culture and identifying flow triggers for all athletes.
If Robbie’s longevity and domination in the sport of basketball across decades is an example of the philosophy he follows, then perhaps we should take a leaf from his book to develop philosophies and maintain consistent and effective physical performances for ourselves.
When you watch Robbie Sartori in action on-court, you will witness the whole individual maximizing his potential every single time! We are proud to have Robbie lead our North East Bushrangers Men’s team this season and know that his drive and philosophies will contribute to an overall improved team performance for all our players as the season progresses.
