About Nick


My goal as a trainer is to provide clients with guidance on reaching a high level of physical fitness and improving their movement efficiency. I believe that hard work combined with individualized programming can help anyone achieve a greater quality of life. As an aspiring physical therapist, a major focus throughout training will be attaining pain free full range of motion throughout the body. While eliminating mobility restrictions through increasing strength and flexibility, I enjoy challenging clients to progress towards advanced training methods.

I come from an athletic background, playing basketball, soccer, and football. To stay active my hobbies include skiing, mountain biking, backpacking, swimming and climbing. I encourage all my clients to consider fitness as a lifestyle; a fully functional body is earned in great part by the work done outside the gym.
