Nick is the consummate athlete, dedicating his life to fitness excellence through proper training, competition, coaching, and endless learning. He is an accomplished triathlete and martial artist with an extensive background in weight lifting. His strengths as a fitness coach include supplementation, functional physical enhancement and sports conditioning.
Nick’s background is as varied and intense as his Pain Cave workouts; from TaeKwonDo at age 14, high school football and wrestling, a stint in the U.S. Navy as a rescue swimmer, to studying Jiu Jitsu, Aikido and Tai Chi while living in Japan. His martial arts training continued with Jeet Kune Do, Kali, Submission Wrestling and BJJ, as Nick became a full-time student at HARD TARGET Martial Arts within the first month of its opening in 2006. Nick is a member of Team HARD TARGET with an impressive 4-1 record in competition.
Nick’s experience also includes roles in gym management and sports supplementation, as he worked for Ric Flair at Gold’s Gym in Charlotte until becoming a vital, bi-coastal team member of Europa Sports Products in 2001. Understanding and embracing his knack for helping people to reach their fitness goals, Nick started “Pain Cave Fitness” in Charlotte at the end of 2006.
