    I have been training with Aaron for over 2 years and he is an outstanding trainer. He listens when I tell him my fitness goals and he creates effective training plans so that I can achieve them. His workouts are very challenging and push me beyond what I would do on my own. He also makes the workouts varied and fun so that I look forward to his workouts with curiosity for what he will come up with next. I highly recommend Aaron for personal training.

His passion for perfection is truly his highest attribute.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We will bring them in to take a look at the facility, go over their goals and some nutrition/measurement things to get a baseline of where we are starting and then will also sign paperwork where they agree to a price that we talk about and then also a liability waiver to keep me and them safe.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am a 2020 Graduate of Butler University and my brother, Dawson Blades, is a current Junior there working towards the same degree. I graduated with a degree in Human Movement Health Science Education with the intent to pursue a Master's and potentially beyond. I have spent 4 years training out of Butler and my brother has spent 2 years training out of the same facility. Both of us have an athletic background, just recently I have competed in bodybuilding and have pursued powerlifting as well while Dawson has done more powerlifting and athletic training.

How did you get started teaching?

We got started at Butler University in 2016 through an in-house course that they offered where we learned the science behind exercise along with the communication skills needed to be an effective trainer. Dawson got started 2 years later in 2018 but helped train friend since 2017.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have experience with weight loss, muscle gain, functional movement, HIIT training clients of all backgrounds and ages, bodybuilding, and powerlifting.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

When looking for a trainer, people should always look for 2 things. You obviously want experience and educational background, but you also want someone personable and that is super friendly and upbeat and will listen to you. Working out may feel like a chore, so the personal trainer needs to be that person for you to pump you up and make you feel good! That is what we do!

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are your goals? How long have you had these goals? What is your why, why personal training, and why now?
