About Nicholas

Hi! My name is Nick and I'm here to share my passion with you! I've been lucky enough to have spent my entire life being active, whether it be through sport, martial arts, or in the gym. I grew up playing baseball, football, and track (sprinter) through high school before competing in Spartan Races and other racing events as an adult. I'm thankful that I've had friends and family pushing me to be my best in each of these endeavors every step of the way.


I’ve been helping clients crush their goals since 2013. In that time, I've worked in many different roles from training in large and small gyms to directing the fitness center and athletics program at a small college. I've had the pleasure of helping clients of all ages and abilities reach their fitness and performance goals, and I can't wait to help you too!

My favorite client story

My favorite client story has to be when I helped my client drop 10lbs and build up strength in her legs going into knee surgery; then help her recover quickly after the surgery. This was her 2nd knee surgery and knew what to expect coming out of it and she knew that the stronger she was going in, the easier the recovery would be coming out of it. And she crushed it! She was hitting all of her benchmarks in recovery with ease and was back up and kicking in no time!

My favorite exercise

Trail running. To me, there's nothing better than getting out in the woods on a nice day and challenging yourself as you navigate through the rock and roots.

My favorite quote

"Excuses are tools of the incompetent, reserved to build monuments of nothing. And those who specialize in them are seldom good for anything else." - Unknown

My training philosophy

"Do what you can, with what you've got, where you are." -Teddy Roosevelt
I focus on what you CAN do. Simply because that's where we're going to start. Then the more often you do the things that you're capable of, you'll become capable of doing bigger and better things over time. That said, my philosophy revolves around helping you to establish lifelong habits around fitness and nutrition to set you up for a lifetime of success.

I've been training since 2013.
