About Coach

Nick began CrossFit in 2017 while starting a sabbatical from work. In his younger years, he was extremely active as a pitcher in baseball, running track, and lifting weights. Yet after having a few kids, he found himself in his late 30s out of shape and overweight. CrossFit became a transformative experience for him and it wasn’t too long before he was in better shape than in high school! He was surprised by the level of community and potential for not just individual but the community-level impact that he found in CrossFit. He began coaching a year later and became certified as a Nutrition Coach. Living in a neighborhood with a lot of refugees and New Americans, he wondered what it would look like to make CrossFit accessible to those who can’t afford it or culturally wouldn’t give it a try. So he started a garage gym in 2019, offering classes to friends and neighbors on a pay what you can basis. The gym became a CrossFit affiliate in 2020 and morphed into a nonprofit, Liminal Health and Fitness, in 2021. His passion is to help as many people as possible achieve their fitness goals so they can live the life they want to live.
