Success Stories


“Nick has been, and continues to be, an important factor in my athletic career and many others. Everyone says “work smarter, not harder” but with Nick you get a delicate balance of both.”

Gilmore Junio, Olympian


“During my career I put my faith in them to strengthen my specific weaknesses as an athlete. They has a very wide scope of knowledge, which combined with their passion, willingness to learn and ability to think outside the box, resulted in a very effective rehab plan that lead into a performance program, that helped me break every North American start and push record for bobsleigh.”



“I have loved all [their] programs but the online training program is my fave. Freedom to do it when I have time and as a single parent, that is my main priority.”

Amanda Blacktopp
