Richard Blake has been a professional trainer since 2004. His love of fitness began at a very young age after suffering a tragic accident that left him unable to play any contact sports. He turned to weight training and began studying the body, it’s functionality, and all that was possible to learn about building a healthy and inspirational lifestyle. Through out his training career he has worked with many high profile clients as well as celebrities such as Britney Spears, Hugh Jackman, Irina Voronina, Elias Koteas, Colm Meany, Kenneth Mitchell, Shawn Ashmore, Brady Tutton, Jesse Williams, Boston Tom, Billy Gibbons, Michael Carbonaro and Country music artist Liz Hill to name just a few. He and his pro-athlete wife Amber, have both competed in weight lifting, cross fit, and gymnastics competitions. Richard has run four marathons and works side by side his clients when pre-paring them for any competition, role, photo shoot, or helping them to maintain a healthy active lifestyle on a weekly basis. With an education in Sports Medicine Richard is also able to address specific individual needs, train around injuries, and rehabilitate muscle atrophy and cardiovascular inefficiency.
