Blake’s interest in healthy living began at age five, when he started gymnastics. Through more than twenty years in the sport, Blake accrued a number of injuries and experienced, first and, the importance of exercise, nutrition, injury prevention and rehabilitation.
His personal experience with the body’s healing process led him to East Carolina University for a degree in Exercise Physiology. As a Physical Therapy Technician, he worked to create wellness programs for patients who were recently discharged from therapy and discovered his passion for working with seniors to help them understand proper form, technique, and progressions to stay strong and flexible as they age.
He is a Functional Aging Specialist and brings that knowledge to a number of different programs: CrossFit, cross training, Olympic weightlifting, cycling, swimming, calisthenics, and running. At Cambridge Village, Blake works hard to make fitness accessible.
He knows a great trainer should be encouraging and friendly and seek to motivate every client while staying aware of their limitations. When he isn’t at work, Blake enjoys exploring on his bike and kayak or checking out the local parks with his wife, son, and two dogs.
