Nick is a hardened Marine veteran born from eagle blood and apple pie sweat. He started his fitness endeavors as a competitive high school power lifter and wrestler. In the world beyond high school, he continues to pursue health and fitness as a competitive Judoka and Olympic weightlifter, as well as a recreational CrossFitter. Nick was introduced to CrossFit in 2009 when walking through the streets of DC he witnessed a skinny, malnourished Quint struggling to deadlift his bodyweight. Nick likes kittens, sushi, Blood Meridian, and back squats. He firmly believes that you can lead a horse to water and make him drink it and that transcendental stoicism is the key to a better life.
