Nick began his career in the fitness industry in Summer 2009 when, while studying for his Master of Environmental Science degree, he earned certifications both as a personal fitness coach and group kickboxing instructor at Lund University’s Gerdahallen, Sweden’s largest and most cutting edge fitness facility.
Upon completing his Master’s studies, and having worked at Gerdahallen for two years, he moved back to his native Virginia in August 2011. Having divided the previous two years of his life between the library and the gym, he decided his true passion lay in the latter, and so his search for employment led him to Fitness Together Bethesda.
Having grown up extremely overweight, beginning his college career in Boston at well over three hundred pounds, Nick finally decided to make a lifestyle change his freshman year of 2003 (losing over one hundred and twenty pounds in the process), and has never looked back. These personal challenges and successes later translated into a desire to help others achieve their own health, fitness and lifestyle goals. As such he has remained committed to giving one hundred percent to his clients, and expecting the same in return.
In addition, Nick is continually looking to expand his knowledge base, and since moving back Stateside has earned certificates as both a Kettlebell Athletics Coach, and Certified Personal Trainer from the National Academy of Sports Medicine, in order to provide an increasingly challenging, diverse, motivating, and effective level of service.

Mark graduated from the University of Maryland in 2005 with Bachelor of Science in kinesiology and is currently certified as a Performance Enhancement Specialist through the National Academy of Sports Medicine. In his early years, there was barely a field or court in town where Mark could not be found at some point during the year. After a knee injury requiring surgery in high school and picking his athletic trainer’s brain during rehab, it seemed like kinesiology was a natural course of study. During his career Mark has worked in numerous facets of the fitness business from personal training and physical therapy to athletic performance training where he has coached numerous collegiate and professional athletes. Mark is thrilled to make Fitness Together his home base and can’t wait to work with you!

I am a lifelong resident of Maryland and have always had a passion for exercise and athletics. I played varsity sports in high school and began coaching youth basketball soon after graduating. I continued to coach for almost 20 years before stopping to spend more time at my own sons' various games. For seven years, I served as the Race Director for an annual 5K fundraising event called Becca's Run, which raised money for pediatric brain cancer research foundations. I have also organized exercise 'boot camps' for adults in my neighborhood; started a program I called 'Boys on the Go' (a boys' version of 'Girls on the Run'); and have privately trained individuals ranging from young athletes to seniors in their 80s. I enjoy walking with friends and hiking with my family and I have a passion for running. After completing several half-marathons and sprint triathlons, I have decided to train for and run a full marathon in March 2015. I started at Fitness Together in August 2014 and have enjoyed being a part of the team in Bethesda.
