Blake was born to exercise! Soon after birth, Blake's mother dropped him in the water during a YMCA infant swimming class and he has been kicking and splashing ever since!
Growing up in rural southern Illinois, Blake participated in and excelled in group sports from a young age. In his later years, the determination and perseverance learned through his high school wrestling career helped shape Blake's views towards proper nutrition and training styles.
While studying Human Nutrition and Dietetics at Southern Illinois University, Blake quickly gravitated towards and began teaching group fitness classes at the university in 2007 and has been teaching a wide variety of classes ever since. He also earned his personal training certification through the American College of Sports Medicine while obtaining his masters degree in Exercise Science from the university and has been training for the past 3 years.
Blake moved to Nashville this past summer and started teaching at Krank soon afterward. Come see how he brings the intensity of team training combined with the science of coordinating movements externally to the beat of the music to yield the most optimal results in a fun and high paced challenging workout!
