Coach

Blake discovered his passion for sports at a young age growing up in Peoria, Illinois. During his high school athletic career, he was an all conference football and basketball player at Dunlap High School. After high school, he played college basketball at Iowa Wesleyan College.

After Blake’s basketball career was over, he wanted to find a competitive, athletic activity to fill the void. After a few years of going to a regular gym , he tried CrossFit in the Spring of 2013. Once he completed his first workout, he was hooked and never looked back.

Blake and his wife Angela have two sons, Isaac (5) and Levi (3). He teaches K-8 Physical Education and is a baseball and basketball coach.
