Staff Trainer CPT, CSCS
Nicholas’s passion for fitness has stemmed since he was a child. He has over 15 years of experience in the fitness field, and he has been training clients professionally for 7 years. His passion increased dramatically after he sustained a knee injury while he was in high school. The injury caused him to have two knee surgeries, which severely inhibited his ability to pursue collegiate sports. After extensive rehabilitation through physical therapy, his own research on injuries, and by learning about program design, he was able to live an active life style once again.
Once he was fully recovered, he became passionate about making sure that other athletes did not suffer his own fate. As a result, Nicholas went to Hofstra University, where he received his bachelor’s degree in Exercise Physiology. During his tenure at Hofstra, he had the privilege of joining the now 12 time National Champion Hofstra Cheerleading Team. Nicholas competed in 2009 and 2010 and became a 2x National Champion. Nicholas has been working for THE ARENA (formally known as Pure Fit Club) for 7 years, and he is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist and Certified Personal Trainer.
