Sam Blank

I grew up in Winona, Minnesota.  I’ve always had a passion for team sports such as football, basketball, and baseball.  I decided to play basketball at Saint John’s University.  After college, I became a teacher.  I currently teach 3rd grade in the Wayzata school district.  I’ve been doing crossfit for over two years now and it has become an important of my life.  I’m in the best shape of my life and have made many friends through the SISU community.

I CrossFit because…

It gives me the opportunity to be competitive.  It’s fun to sign up for competitions and see how much I have improve over my two years.  It’s also a great way for my wife and I to workout together.

I coach because…

Crossfit has had a positive impact on my life both physically and socially.  My hope is that through coaching I can help people have the same positive experiences that I have had through crossfit.

My secret ninja exercise…

Burpees!  I love bodyweight exercises.

My not so secret sucky is…

Overhead squats.

My favorite cheat meal is…

Buffalo wings.  The hotter the better!
