In September of 2019, I started with Nick in person while he lived in Baltimore, MD.  I was 55 and had been an avid gym goer but I never pushed myself. Nick was very knowledgeable, personable, and caring. My in person training ended when COVID hit. Nick moved to Florida and I saw my gains from the gym slipping away. Nick stayed in contact and told me, "don't worry, once the gyms reopen we will do online training and get you back on track." and he did! He gave me weekly workouts and a structured diet that best fit my needs. Now at 57 I can say I'm in the best shape of my life.

I remember the first day I met Nick. I had already trained for two years in bodybuilding, trying to learn the ropes on my own. But, I had hit a wall and I was stuck. I tried changing my plans and my meals and it still wasn't working out. It all changed the day I met Nick. He had the professional knowledge of bodybuilding but most importantly he provided very strong leadership and support. He never chased the money but only cared about getting me results and teaching me the knowledge I needed to improve and reach my goals. That's why I feel that Nick is the best personal trainer and body building coach out there.

As a former competitor, I've trained with many coaches, but Nick truly stands out for his intelligence and his knack for explaining complex concepts clearly. His extensive knowledge in physiology, nutrition, & anatomy truly sets him apart. Nick not only has a unique ability to simplify advanced ideas (which greatly enhances my training efficiency and performance), but he knows how to push you mentally so that you train harder than you thought you could. I highly recommend him to any lifestyle clients or aspiring competitors!
