Saint Peter's Prep School Alumnus Named Notre Dame Starting QB

The recipient of a business marketing degree from Castleton State College, Robert Gill is a New Jersey resident who serves as president of Epic Wealth Management, a subsidiary of Chelsea Financial Services. New Jersey's Robert Gill provides scholarship opportunities through Saint Peter's Preparatory School and is a fan of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish football team. 

The 2017 college football season begins toward the end of August and the Fighting Irish's starting quarterback will be Brandon Wimbush, a 2015 alumnus of Saint Peter's Preparatory School. Wimbush, a 6-foot-1, 228-pound native of New Jersey, debuted with Notre Dame as a freshman in 2015 and played in only two games. He made seven rush attempts and recorded a touchdown, but didn't throw the ball. He was redshirted in 2016 while DeShone Kizer and Malik Zaire battled for the role of starting quarterback. 

The 20-year-old finance major contemplated transferring schools, but eventually embraced the redshirt role and practiced hard throughout the year against the team's defense. He also made the most of his extra time to study film and improve his conditioning in the gym. Following the end of the 2016 season, Kizer entered the NFL Draft and was selected by the Cleveland Browns, while Zaire transferred to the University of Florida. Wimbush, meanwhile, makes his 2017 regular season debut as Notre Dame's starting quarterback on September 2 when the team plays Temple.

Three Common Money-Wasters

Robert Gill is the managing director for Epic Wealth Management, LLC, located in Tinton Falls, New Jersey. Working with both businesses and individuals, Robert Gill throughout his career has helped acquire over 300 client portfolios, developing strategies to help those clients achieve financial security. His company is an affiliate of Chelsea Financial Services.

One of the easiest and most obvious ways to start saving toward financial security is simply to waste less money, but it is often easier said than done. Consider eliminating these three money-wasters from your budget – or at least push for a better deal on what you want.

1. The gourmet coffee shop - If you are a regular coffee drinker, the price of your daily premium coffee adds up, and that is assuming all you get is coffee, let alone a $4 bagel or $6 pastry. You do not even need to give up your coffee, just the premium price tag. Brew your coffee at home and save the money you would otherwise spend on this daily money-waster. 

2. Bottled water – This is not the only source of drinkable water. Even if you live in an area where the tap water is not safe for drinking, you could buy a reusable filtration system and washable bottle. Both of these investments will eventually pay for themselves and start saving you the money you once spent on bottled water. 

3. Cable television, Internet, and phone - Companies that provide these services often offer special discounts at first, but then raise the price after the promotional period. Sometimes, though, all you need to do to get your bill lowered is ask. Don’t be afraid to frame it as though you cannot afford the current service. Your provider might be willing to help in the face of potentially losing a customer.

Three Workouts to Improve Your Boxing Game

At Epic Wealth Management in New Jersey, Robert Gill helps his clients achieve their unique financial goals for their families and businesses. When he finds time away form his professional duties and charitable work throughout New Jersey, Robert Gill pursues boxing and fitness.

Boxing in the ring is roughly 20 percent aerobic and 80 percent anaerobic. The discipline demands both stamina and agility, requiring good fighters to be well-rounded athletes. To improve your boxing skills, consider adding one or more of these intense non-boxing exercises to your training regimen.

1. Power lifting with barbells – While focusing on proper form to avoid injuries, add heavy deadlifts, squats, and bench press sets to your workout routine. These three big exercises will improve strength and stability in your legs, glutes, core, chest, and arms.

2. Variations on jumping rope – To improve footwork and agility, practice double unders, criss-crosses, and other challenging styles of jumping rope.

3. High intensity cardiovascular intervals – Whether you favor the treadmill, the stationary bike, or other cardio machines, add intense intervals to your training. Move at your normal pace for one minute, then sprint for 15 to 20 seconds. Repeat these intervals as many times as you are able, gradually working up to sessions of approximately 12 intervals.

Clara Maass Brings Invaluable Health Services to Seniors' Doorsteps

Robert Gill, New Jersey business owner, serves as president of Epic Wealth Management. Alongside his work in the financial sector, Robert Gill sits on the board of trustees for New Jersey's Clara Maass Medical Center.

Clara Maass Medical Center created the Wellness Assessment Van for Elders (WAVE) program to bring preventative health services to seniors in their own communities.

Clara Maass and WAVE bring physicians and nurses directly to seniors in their community groups and private residences. Patients receive an examination, appropriate tests, and relevant wellness information to help them stay healthy. As part of a regular healthcare routine, these preventative services help seniors live better, longer.

If you live in New Jersey, it is easy to bring WAVE to your community center or local seniors group. To get in touch with WAVE, call 973-450-2528.

Saint Peter’s Prep Welcomes Academically Exceptional Young Men

As the president of Epic Wealth Management, Robert Gill, New Jersey business owner, maintains the financial portfolios of more than 800 local clients. Alongside his demanding role in the financial world, Robert Gill supports education in New Jersey through generous donations to the state’s best schools. Among others, he contributes to scholarship funds at Saint Peter’s Prep.

Though it is a Jesuit school, Saint Peter’s Prep welcomes young men from a variety of backgrounds, provided they meet the school’s rigorous academic requirements. To be considered for admission, incoming freshmen must first complete the COOP exam, administered by the local Archdiocese. Students must also furnish an official academic transcript, which should provide grades for at least the sixth and seventh grades as well as the first term of their current school year.

Incoming freshmen must also furnish at least one teacher recommendation form. Saint Peter’s uses these evaluations to judge the character and scholastic aptitude of each potential student. Once these materials are in order, students will also need to complete the official application and accompanying personal essay.
