We had the good fortune of connecting with Richard Blake and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Richard, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
My success in both my businesses is a direct result of other people’s success. This is an incredible model as I focus on these three elements, people, process, product – and in that order. If all three of those are aligned and humming, then I feel well balanced, motivated weekly, and able to connect to others building genuine relationships with clients, customers, and fans.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I wear a lot of hats! I own two businesses that have recently relocated to Fort Worth. My weekly grind and passion is RBPT, which is Richard Blake Personal Training. I love fitness, have a very strong education and 20 plus years experience working with celebrities, professional athletes, and every day people. My love for health, fitness, and helping others be their best has only grown as I’ve gotten older, and I enjoy the personal side as well as running the business side of Personal Training. My other long time passion is Entertainment. I own the production company Amberock Productions and we just released our second feature film “Blame” on Amazon Prime Video Worldwide.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Hmmm… In the short time that I’ve lived in Fort Worth, I’ve already grown to love it, so first day would be training session, sauna, massage and cryotherapy- then a nice dinner downtown somewhere. Next few days maybe catch a Football or basketball game, then visit Newport Beach, go for a bike ride and swim in the ocean. Dukes on the beach for dinner and breakfast the next day. Then maybe hunt down Collective Soul and see where they’re playing a show, stay at a nice hotel – stuff like that would be pretty great.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My wife, Amber Michelle Blake, takes the cake. She knows me inside and out, helps spur me forward when I’m feeling blue and helps pull me back when I’m overdoing it. I think on some levels, I might do the same for her, so our marriage has incredible balance. I couldn’t and really wouldn’t do anything with out her in my corner.
