MES, NASM, FPTI, SSC

Hailing from Staten Island, Nick always knew that he wanted to find a craft where he could help people in the fast-paced world of New York City. He's always lived an active lifestyle through mixed martial arts and Chinese lion dancing, but it was not until after graduating from college that he realized his passion was right in front of his eyes.

Nick discovered the Focus Personal Training Institute and was instantly drawn in by the unparalleled value placed on professionalism and education. As a graduate of FPTI's 700-hour Master Course, he holds himself to the highest standard and continues striving for improvement.

In addition to the physical and mental benefits that come with exercise, Nick hopes to convey to others that with exercise and a healthy lifestyle comes the potential for much more than just looking good. He firmly believes that some of the most important benefits often go unnoticed, and emphasizes discipline, structure and a positive outlook on life. With his vast and growing skill set and an enthusiastic approach to training, Nick aspires to guide each of his clients not only to their respective fitness goals, but to lead more fulfilling lives overall.
