I have been the owner of Blinn Fitness since it was founded 2014. I was inspired to start my own business because I was tired of seeing commercial gyms take advantage of people with their pricing and lack of service, passion and knowledge to members who didn't know better. I previously worked in the commercial gym industry for years prior to starting up my business. My goal is to transform lives through proper exercise technique and precise dieting while creating a strong base on the squat bench and deadlift along with various other free weight exercises.
Besides training others I myself have a fitness journey of my own. I previously competed in the Emerald Cup physique show and I now regularly compete in power-lifting meets. I played football at the collegiate level at Chadron State College in Nebraska where I received my Bachelors in Exercise Science and I am now the head strength and conditioning coach at Cascade High School in Everett. I have a strong passion for health and fitness and hope to share this passion with people around me.
I've been a fitness coach for the better part of 3 years. I've spent time coaching all ages 1-on-1, small group sessions (2-4 people), and group classes (25+ people). Through those experiences, I've coached almost every aspect of fitness including strength training, powerlifting, body building, weight loss, metabolic conditioning, and more. My mission is to be able to coach you for whatever goal you have in a realistic, efficient, and easy to understand format to ensure your success.
As for my journey, like many trainers, I started out as a former athlete wanting to help people achieve peak physical performance. Eventually I shifted focus to getting as strong as I could via body building. I have certifications though NASM and I am certified as a Corrective Exercise Specialist. No goal is too big or small. Whether you're a beginner or advanced athlete, I can help you reach your goals!
