Meet Bob

Bob Fanelli

Hello. It’s nice to meet you. My name is Bob. I want to share with you a little bit about myself.  I am in my 50s and have been trained in Kinesiology, Exercise Physiology, Psychiatry, Energy Medicine, and Applied Functional Science. My life’s passion is to remind people that they are always ‘whole’. Wholeness is never lost. It is only forgotten. You are always whole. You are always complete. You just may not be fully realized yet. We are all entitled to the blessings of everyday grace. 

My Family

I have an amazing 24-year-old son, whom I delight in. He holds half of my heart.

I am married to the girl of my dreams, a beautiful English girl to whom I have been married for 31 years. She is my rock and my breath. She is what makes all of this world ‘make sense’. There is no ‘me’ without her. She holds the other half of my heart.

We live in New Rochelle, NY (about 18 miles NE of New York City) where I own Body By Design, Inc., in New Rochelle, NY. I have lived in the same 5-mile radius in New Rochelle my whole life. It is my home. I love what I do (helping and serving others) and am serious when I state that, because of my love of my ‘work,’ I never ‘work’ a day in my life. My occupation: Aspiring Beam of Light.

I think of my work life not as separate from my spiritual life but as central to my spiritual life. My work is my ministry.


My Passions

Spending time with my family. They are so loving. I am truly blessed.

The New York Yankees, The NY Giants, and sports in general.

Quantum Physics


People. I find people to be fascinating, interesting, and continually stimulating. Why do we do what we do, what drives us, who and what we love, what our beliefs are? There is so much there beyond what we see on the outside.

Applied Functional Science (AFS).  AFS is the convergence of sciences that allows for purposeful movement. The convergence of Physical Sciences (the world we live in), Biological Sciences (the miracle of the human body), and Behavioral Sciences (the power of the mind and spirit) is the DNA of AFS. I am a total AFS nerd.  It has transformed my life.  The knowledge, the people, the thought process, the sense of giving and serving. It’s truly amazing.

Currently reading many books. I tend to do that. Among them are: A Course In Miracles by Alan Cohen;  There Is A Spiritual Solution To Every Problem by Wayne Dyer; Living Buddha Living Christ by Thich Nhat Hanh; The 4 Agreements by Don Miguel Ruiz; Silence: The Power of Quiet in a World Full of Noise by Thich Nhat Hanh; Discover the Power Within You: A Guide to the Unexplored Depths Within by Eric Butterworth;  Vaster Than Sky, Greater Than Space: What You Are Before You Became by Mooji; You Are the Universe: Discovering Your Cosmic Self and Why It Matters by Deepak Chopra, and Menas Kafatos Ph.D.

My morning routine: up by 7 or 7:30 to be quiet and place myself in a grateful heart space. By 8:30, I gently kiss my wife awake and spend some morning time talking with her and sharing in her light.

Spending some time ‘unlearning’.

To learn more about the heart. If you know what changes a heart, you know what changes a world.
