Personal Trainer, Head of Programme Design
After spending 3 years at Hartpury College studying Sports Conditioning and Coaching, Nick found his calling in coaching health and fitness, and began training clients in 2009. Since then Nick has worked with Olympians and GB athletes, arctic explorers, local teams and people simply wanting to improve their health, fitness and wellbeing. This led Nick to open the NLFitness Facility in March 2015, and devotes himself to pursuing innovative ways to train whilst filtering out the nonsense. Not a fan of quick fixes and fads, Nick uses small, consistent changes to create habits which point you in the right direction and lead to big changes over time.
Nick has studied in America, holds qualifications in fitness and nutrition, and is a Level 3 Sports Massage Therapist.
Personal Trainer / Strength Coach
After growing up playing football to a county level, Matt discovered the benefit of strength and fitness training and it’s impact on his performance and physique. This spark gave Matt the incentive to study as a Personal Trainer, to help others benefit from structured, intelligent training. Wanting a new challenge, Matt stumbled into powerlifting, and his competitive spirit took over taking him to 4th at the British Nationals 2014. Matt is a self-confessed nerd when it comes to training and nutrition and is not only always learning, but applying this knowledge with great effect. Functional strength is a big part of Matt’s training philosophy, and when tied in with correct nutrition (currently undertaking the BodyType Nutrition coaching programme) it creates fantastic results.
