Blake Nelson

Personal Trainer

Blake is a Certified Personal Trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and is certified to train Natural Movement through MovNat. He has an athletic background in team sports including hockey and lacrosse; in recent years he has turned to strength training, bouldering and parkour to stay fit.
“I find training so rewarding because helping someone get stronger and move better is literally empowering. They feel better, look better and become more confident every day.” Blake believes the best way to achieve fitness goals is with a simple, progressive approach. “Mastering new movement skills stimulates the body and the mind. Taking the time to practice a movement takes commitment but it gets results.”
Blake’s approach is to build people up and help them grow. “I want clients to end their sessions feeling strong and energized, not worn out. I want them to take that strength and energy out into the rest of their day and the rest of their life!”
