Opportunity Knocks started in 2010 with the goal of strengthening people to face the battles of everyday life. We strive to meet you wherever you are at in life, to strengthen and build ALL of you, and to support you along the way. No matter who you are, from a professional athlete to a person working out for the first time, you can ALWAYS improve and progress!
Opportunity Knocks is passionate about seeing people reach their true potential, and they have the staff to back it up.
From professional athletes to 7th grade football players; from heavyweight boxers to the over-worked soccer mom, our trainers will meet you where you’re at.
Opportunity Knocks offers programs that are specifically designed for where you’re at, and where you want to get.
Who We Are
Luke has been very selective of who he allows to work with the clients of OK, grooming in instructors that truly care about their people and what they do. With his brothers Dis and Adam, and Josh and Zach, Luke is confident of the abilities of his trainers. We have been called the “barbershop of gyms” and try to hold true to that by offering support and care for our clients and their lives while also delivering a healthy place and a great workout.
Luke started Opportunity Knocks in 2010. He has 40+ fights in Muay Thai Kickboxing, Full-Contact Kickboxing, and Boxing, winning 2 state titles: USA boxing state heavyweight champion and IKBA state heavyweight Muay Thai champion. Luke has been personal training since he graduated high school, with over 12 years of experience. He has a passion for meeting people where they are at and helping them to realize their strength and potential, both mentally and physically.
Dis has been involved in Martial Arts since 1998, having competed in numerous fights and exhibitions. He and Luke began training together in 2001 and have traded many, many punches together. Loud, brash, and outspoken, Dis offers his own take on life and training and is also a walking punching bag. Enter at your own risk.
Adam has been learning the fight game since 2004 under Luke and he is currently in training to compete in boxing and MMA. He was a wrestler and played football at Blaine High School. Learning under Luke and Dis, Adam has been instructing at Opportunity Knocks since December of 2012. Adam hopes to get in the ring sometime in 2013.
Joshua Abrahamson has been at Opportunity Knocks since 2011 and has since started instructing. From an early age he has been very active and he has developed a love for pursing the physical limits of the body and mind. He has competed in numerous bicycle races and ran in the Tough Mudder and Rugged Maniac obstacle races last year. He has been teaching kickboxing and fitness since Jan. 2013 and has a thirst for learning new workouts to help improve and motivate others.
The newest of the OK instructors, Zach started with us in 2012. He has been involved with various sports and athletic events his whole life and uses his diverse experience in his training. Currently he is learning the art of boxing in greater depths with Luke and adding to his background of athletic training.
The Betz Center is a program designed to use martial arts to teach youth self-control, discipline, and character. Currently we are developing this program and getting the non-profit set up. We are looking for mentors and possible volunteer staff who have an interest in helping youth prepare for tomorrow. Contact Luke at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or interest.
