Introducing the 413 Fitness team
Meet the fitness experts that are here to help you achieve your goals
While Blake was attending college at the University of Cincinnati for a degree in Health Promotion Education: Exercise and Fitness, he obtained his first personal training certification through the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and began working as a fitness coach soon after. Shortly after graduating in Cincy, he moved back home to Southern Indiana where he opened 413 Fitness in 2015. It was located in a small studio on Vincennes Street in New Albany as a shared space with his aunt’s dance studio. After 14 months in business, it was time for a bigger space as Margaret decided to join as the second fitness coach! As membership grew and grew, we realized that people needed more help than just their workouts. So, Margaret pursued her nutrition certification through Precision Nutrition to begin the first stages of wellness coaching. Fast forward several more years down the road and now we have a strong team of 9 people that are all highly qualified fitness and wellness coaches to guide and encourage Kentuckiana as catalysts for a healthier community. We are proud to boast that nearly all of our staff began as members first looking for help; experienced sustaining life change; and are now excited to help others along the same journey!
Margaret has been training at 413 since March of 2017. She earned her CPT from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. She graduated from Indiana University Southeast in December of 2016, with her Bachelors in Strategic Communication and is the head of Marketing. She also earned her PNL1 from Precision Nutrition and is our nutrition coach.
Sam graduated from Lindsey Wilson University College in 2008 with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication and Christian Ministry with a minor in Social Science. In 2019 she earned her CPT from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Sam loves people and loves Jesus. She has a passion for fitness, specifically moms. She loves empowering women to chase being strong, not skinny; helping them become all that God created them to be!
Mark started training at 413 in 2018 and has always displayed an encouraging and motivating heart to help others get 1% better each and every workout. He used his longing for fitness to earn a scholarship to a Division 1 University to run Cross Country and Track. He spends most of his free time outdoors pushing the envelope on fitness and adventure. But more than that, he loves watching others as they strive to become fit and accomplish their life goals. He’s excited about the fitness journey he’s on and is passionate about joining others as they journey to become more active and fit.
Joanne won the opportunity to train at 413 Fitness in October 2015. After being a member for several years, she obtained her CPT certification through the National Academy of Sport’s Medicine to help others stay fit as they continue to age. She loves the transformation in her own life and wants to help others in their journey to better health and fitness.
