Nick Klein

Owner and Master Personal Trainer

My name is Nick Klein. I specialize in outcome-driven, effective methods of training, exercise, education, nutrition and supplementation for clients and personal trainers alike. Growing up I was a huge athlete. I always loved pushing myself to the max and constantly sought out competition. My passion was visible and everyone could see that I was a fighter.

Then one day I came home from the gym. I walked in to see my parents in the kitchen. My dad was crying and genuinely looked scared. He was diagnosed with Leukemia and the doctors were pessimistic about any chance of survival. But, I witnessed my dad fight and beat cancer.

That whole experience made me realize how quick life can be taken from us. I decided at that very point in time that I did not want to accomplish any less than my full potential. I wanted to help other make the most of their lives, to reach their health goals and experience a long and fit life.

This led me to take up a career in personal training. I wanted to help others achieve greater health and performance. But I didn’t want to be a standard trainer. I wanted to be in the top 2% of the industry.

I sought out and continue to seek out the best strength coaches, nutritionists, lifestyle educators and manual therapists, and created my own system to combat all of the misguided inaccurate information that floods us today.

My programs have been so successful, I was able to open my own premier training center and help not only top-level athletes, but everyday people to achieve a higher level of health and fitness. Often people come to us with little hope, poor health, injuries, no personal belief that what we offer could ever benefit them. My personal satisfaction: watching those people thrive.

Throughout my journey, I have encountered various individuals who have helped me to learn and inspired me to grow and achieve things that I could not have otherwise achieved on my own. These individuals have equipped me with the tools necessary to cultivate the true potential locked up inside of us.

As my team and I travel with you on your journey, we will offer you a coaches encouragement, a mentor’s guidance, a critic’s feedback, a supporter’s admiration and a friends commitment. We are in this together!

I know the hardest part to any goal is starting. It’s a CHOICE, It’s Your Choice. So essentially, you’re just one rep away!
