Born in inner-city Detroit, Blake spent most of his time either outside or in the gym especially in winter. Finding love for football and fighting got him into Lewis Class Technical High School where he majored in marketing and entrepreneurship. After becoming a stand-out star on the football team, Blake earned a D1 football scholarship to the University of Tulsa . Once moving down to Tulsa, he discovered his love of the heat and the outdoors. After college, Blake’s affinity for working out led him to get certified as a personal fitness instructor and strength coach through ISSA. With his training background and customer service, he spent most of his time prior to Einstein managing gyms. Finally, after living in Oklahoma and finishing up school, he moved to Texas at the end of February to be closer to friends and family. Blake enjoys working out and being by or on water and, if he is not outside or at the gym, then you can probably catch him at home gaming or playing with his furkids Hammy, Soldier Boy, and Smokey the cat.
