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.
