Achieving Sustainable Health and Strength, the Blair Rockoff Way

by Adrienne Harvey, SrPCC, RKC-II, CK-FMS

Dragon Door: How did you first get involved with fitness and athletics?

Blair Rockoff: I was always active growing up, but never in a super competitive way. I did gymnastics, played lacrosse, and swam in high school.

In college, I played a little lacrosse, tennis, and went to the gym.

After college, I was still trying to figure out what I was going to do with my life, so I enrolled in a six month program at a personal training school—to learn and to get back in shape.

That’s also where I really started to dive into different areas of fitness like yoga, strength training, and kettlebells.

Dragon Door: When did you start your personal training business?

Blair Rockoff: I opened my gym doors on January 13, 2013—it will be four years this January.

Before I opened my gym, I trained at other gyms, taught yoga at different studios and led boot camps around Chicago.

Then, I decided that I was ready to set up an ideal environment and try to grow my brand as I saw fit.

Dragon Door: When did you do your RKC?

Blair Rockoff: I did my RKC in November 2015, and then the complete interview here.
