About Nick

I’m Nick, and I created Effort Rx to best serve others as they work towards the healthiest, happiest version of themselves.

While some people may be focused on athletic performance, others may be driven to follow a path of general good health. Whatever the goal, I believe progress is ultimately the result of quality effort. As someone dedicated to a growth-mindset, I appreciate that effort across multiple domains can be a grind. The mission of Effort Rx is to help with that journey, making the process efficient and sustainable.

My formal education, including a bachelors in exercise science and doctorate in physiotherapy, enables me to apply current scientific principles to improve health and performance. I also find great value in exploring what drives people to succeed, as this skill deepens working relationships and promotes improved autonomy.
