Nick is currently in his 10th year of working with athletes, and has been competing for the past 15 years. Currently, he is working in the heart of Downtown Boston as a General Manager in corporate wellness. In the past, he has learned the methodology designed by EXOS (Formerly Athletes Performance) proven to work with thousands of athletes, high level tactical forces, and countless individuals. He has worked with athletes of all levels from youth to elite national teams, NCAA varsity sports, nationally ranked athletes, and semi-professional teams. In his career of working in with endurance athletes, he has coached High School Cross Country and Track and Field, as well as building countless training plans and consultations for local athletes involved in running, triathlon, and strength training.
His own competing has taken him from his hometown of Buffalo, NY where he started in Track and Field at Lancaster High School, to SUNY Fredonia where he competed for the varsity NCAA Cross Country and Track and Field teams. After rehabilitating some injuries, years of dreaming, and many hours spent researching training methods and technique, he was finally able to take the plunge into triathlon during graduate school while living in Miami, Florida. He is currently residing and competing in Salem, Massachusetts just north of Boston.
Several of his favorite athletic achievements are finishing his second sprint triathlon ever in under an hour, coming in at 57:40 for 500yd/10mi/5k, and winning "Fastest Super Hero" at Miami Beach's Halloween Half Marathon. During his first ever triathlon, Nick had top 20 run and T2 times, ranking ahead of mostly every age group athlete and several professionals in the field. In his first season as Head Coach at Pasco High School (Wa) the team as a whole averaged over a minute faster in the 5k distance than in the previous season. Crossing the finish line for the first time (and every time!) or setting a new PR is a feeling he loves, and wants to help you achieve the same sense of accomplishment!
