GET TO KNOW NICK
I am currently studying for a Master’s degree in Exercise Physiology at La Trobe in Bendigo, which I am due to complete at the end of 2021. I love working with individuals of all backgrounds, and fitness levels to achieve their own personal goals. I have worked as a personal trainer for over 5 years which has mostly been 1:1, and a little bit of group training. I had the opportunity to work with Eastern Rangers U/16s, which was great to work with such a motivated and driven team. I am always keen to keep on learning and growing.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT THE GAME OF STRENGTH & CONDITIONING?
I love how strength and conditioning can be such a technical field but also so simple. There is so much that goes into strength and conditioning however the most important outcome is assisting the athlete so they can perform in the field to the best of their ability.
WHICH MOVIE & BOOK HAS IMPACTED YOU?
The Compound Effect by Darren Hardy; Being able to do something little each or week over a period of time will end up being something great. This can be learning, saving money, fitness. Consistency is one if not the most important factor to improving.
Just a movie a can always watch over and over again. It’s more than just high school basketball it shows the importance of having a strong relationship within the team and having standards that go on to build success.
WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE WAY TO SPEND YOUR DAY OFF?
Going for a road trip down to Torquay or and chilling out and eating dinner at the beach.
WHICH SONG DO YOU NEVER GET SICK OF LISTENING TO?
Simple things by Ziggy Alberts
FAVOURITE DESTINATION FOR A HOLIDAY AND WHY?
Going to Eden, just because I have some really good childhood memories of having a road trip there and it’s just a nice relaxing place to go.
