Blaine is a CrossFit Level 2 (CF-L2) Certified Coach with a mobility certificate and judges certificate and has participated in a number of other CrossFit seminar courses. He specializes in coaching gymnastics, Olympic lifting and competitive athletes. Blaine grew up playing team sports and was accustomed to spending long hours in the gym training for various athletic endeavors. After his team sports career ended and he joined the Corporate world he could regularly be found at a local big box gym riding the elliptical or getting in some bench press. “I had lost all sense of training for something, I was merely going to the gym to check that box off the list for the day because I felt like that was what I was supposed to do to be fit and healthy.” It wasn’t until he found CrossFit that his passion for training and fitness was reignited. “CrossFit really stresses training to make improvements not just going through the motions, which really resonated with the athlete in me.” After trying CrossFit for the first time back in 2012 Blaine was immediately hooked, and has turned his passion for CrossFit into a passion for helping others to ignite their passion for fitness and allow fitness to change their lives, not only in the gym but also in their everyday life. “I love coaching CrossFit, not only because it changed my life but also because I’m a firm believer that as humans we are meant to face extremely challenging tasks daily and that will improve the rest of your day as well as give you a sense of accomplishment. I tell everyone in class in this hour you will have accomplished more than most people will with their entire day.
