Hello! My name is Blake Holman. I currently reside in New York City but work with clients all around the globe! Join me on a quest to take back your health and achieve your full potential. We all have a story, so here is mine:
Growing up in a rural town, sports were everything to me, especially football. I started working out with the hope that it would help me become a better football player. However, soon after high school was over I realized that my football career was also over. I found myself sticking to my routine and regularly went to the gym during my first year of college. I remember specifically that my brother, one of my closest friends and supporters, and I searched Bodybuilding.com for workouts. We discovered a workout plan by Cory Gregory called “Get Swole” and it quickly became our favorite. I remember having a moment where it felt like I had found my calling. After that day there was no turning back and I was hooked. Hooked on working out AND the joy that came with setting a goal, achieving it and creating a new one.
I went through workout plan after workout plan, learning everything I could about fitness, nutrition, and supplementation. I started watching Steve Cook, Christian Guzman, and various other fitness influencers on Youtube, as well. I suppose you could say I was obsessed. I loved everything about the fitness lifestyle and I couldn’t get enough of it. I was noticing a lot of progress with my own physique and had added over 20 lbs of muscle to my body. I was addicted to the way the gym made me feel and I knew I had found my passion and purpose.
Later that year, I declared my major as Exercise, Sport, and Health Education with a specialization in Fitness, Strength, and Conditioning. I wanted to continue learning as much as I could and become a Personal Trainer. I knew I could show other people that they could also have the physique they always dreamed of.
I started a fitness instagram account and people started to follow along my journey. I had a vision for what I wanted to be and I refused to stop until I reached it. My page grew continuously and I ended up landing my first major sponsorship with EVL Nutrition, which showed me a side of fitness that I had yet to be apart of yet.
I decided to take my own fitness to the next level and compete in a Natural Bodybuilding show, where I won all 4 classes that I competed in. I was awarded my ANBF Men’s Physique Pro Card. I remember the grueling 12 weeks of prep and everything I learned during it, but it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. That fueled my passion for fitness even more.
I graduated college with my Bachelor’s of Science in Exercise, Sport, and Health Education with a Specialization in Fitness, Strength, and Conditioning. I became a certified Personal Trainer through ACE and later became an ACE Fitness Nutrition Specialist. I have further refined my abilities with Coaches Education and Lifting Certification through Totten Training Systems. I have competed in three other body building shows and brought home 6 first place trophies, along with the overall title at the NPC Virginia Natural.
To this day, I have over 6 years of experience of working in the fitness industry. I have coached two clients to their Men’s Physique Pro cards and helped over 200 people take their fitness to a level they never thought possible. Completely changing their lives also changed mine, which is why I remain dedicated to my client’s success.
Your transformation is my passion and together, we WILL achieve your goals.
