Born and raised in Knoxville, TN and left his favorite person in the world, his mamaw, to move to LA with big dreams to pursue a career in physical fitness. Nick has had an interest in body building and strength training since he was 15 years old. Like any 15 year old who saw The Terminator, he had aspirations to be the next Arnold Schwarzenegger but thats also when he stopped growing at 5' 8". He said "Hasta La Vista, Baby" to the Terminator but his passion for fitness remained and found joy in helping other people discover theirs. Since moving to LA three years ago Nick has worked as a personal trainer and coaching group classes at a "He Who Must Not Be Named" Australian-based organization before finding his perfect match at Training Mate.
