My name is Pietro, I am a track and field athlete in Brazil. I run the 100, 200 and 4x100 meter races at local, state, and national level. When I came up with the idea of becoming an elite sprinter, Nick was the first one to help me. His training program helped me a lot, not only in strength, but also in mobility. Nick is way more than a training coach. When I got Covid and the gyms were closed, the program that he made with little resources made me get back on track allowing me to feel good and fast when I was finally back on the track. When I got injured, Nick's recovery and mobility program helped me pass through the pain and about a month later I won 2 gold medals and became one of the best athletes under 23 in my state.
I first started training with Nick around December of Last year and I told him what I wanted to work towards on the field and in the weight room. I told him I wanted to be more explosive off the ball but also be super strong to bully kids on the field. I asked to get to a 500lbs squat and at least 3 plates on the bench press by April during our liftathon. He wrote me a program to gain explosiveness but also get stronger. If I ever had a question he would respond within 5 minutes on text and go over my videos and teach me how I can be better at the lift. When April hit and it was max day I squatted 500lbs and benched 325lbs! I also felt way more flexible and can bend way easier at my position. He taught me how to lift, but also taught me the world of mobility and how it can make our lifts better. All the joint pains I had, he knew what stretch and how to get rid of them. I recommend Nick to any athlete or any powerlifter who wants to get better at their craft.
I've been working with Nick for just over a year and it has been a great return on investment! As a powerlifter, the main reason why I needed Nick as my online coach was to take care of my programming and give me constant feedback and communication on my performance, which he does perfectly. His training methods have brought me so much benefit for my performance in my sport and longevity since I'm able to train without any pain in my joints and connective tissues, which is very overlooked in the sport of powerlifting. Not only that, Nick has helped me mature a lot in the gym and in powerlifting: with his constant communication, he helped me overcome many mental setbacks I had during my training, especially when preparing for my first competition as my performance was oscillating at times, putting my feet on the ground whenever I needed to, but also showing me a clear path for improvement in the sport, and today I use these experiences to empower other people starting out in the gym. Throughout the time I've been with Nick, my training effectiveness and efficiency have been going up exponentially, since at the end of every training block I can see at least one piece of major progress, whether it's the weight on the bar, improvements in technique, and/or an increase in joint mobility. I cannot be more grateful for what Nick has done for me so far, and as I have a goal of becoming a major reference in the sport of powerlifting, it is safe to say that he can take me far!
Training with Nick was amazing! Not only did he help me with my injury that I was having for months but, also lead me to get 4 state records in powerlifting, expanded my mobility with his frc/mobility, had no pain and felt great. I got a lot stronger training with Nick putting over 150+ on my total and gave me a lot of information and advice overall. Nick is a great coach!
