Nick L

Personal Trainer

Education and Certifications :: EDUCATION Applied Health Fitness- Plymouth State University (2012)

CERTIFICATIONS
ACE Certified Personal Trainer (2013)
Weight Management (2015)
American Red Cross CPR/AED Certified

Areas Of Expertise :: Helping individuals whom are new to fitness, work towards adapting a healthier lifestyle. I help people get accustomed to an exercise routine and keep them motivated to better their own fitness. I am a catalyst for your progress and push you to reach personal goals.

Training Philosophy :: There is always going to be barriers when it comes to improving your own lifestyle; someone who truly wants to reach their goals won’t let those stop them. There will always be a reason to quit, but quitting won’t get you what you want. That’s why you always need to push forward!

Personal Accomplishments :: Having struggled with being an obese child and adolescent, I personally worked on becoming knowledgeable about nutrition and exercise. After some time and some results, exercise became a passion; it became something I wanted to help others do. After working towards my goals for several years, I was able to lose close to 100 pounds, and gain a unique perspective that is applicable to my practices as a trainer today.

Personal Trainer

Education / Certifications:
National Academy of Sports Medicine, Certified Personal Trainer
Kettlebell Level I Instructor; TRX Suspension Trainer Group Instructor; Annette Lang Integrated Stretch; PESI Healthcare-Post Rehab Strength Training; Perform Better Learn by Doing Seminar; Cressey Performance 1st Annual Seminar
_
Areas of expertise:
Corrective Exercise Specialist, Post-rehab strength training, injury prevention, posture correction, core stability and balance

_
Training Philosophy:
Strength progressions can only be safely achieved if muscle imbalances and postural distortions are corrected first. In the years that I have been training I have yet to meet anyone who is 100% free from imbalances; therefore, it is imperative that one is aware of their posture and learns how everyday life contributes to the stress placed on the body. Through a structured core and posture improvement program, one can be sure that they will not only prevent injury and get stronger, but will learn more about their body than they have ever been aware of.

Client Testimonial :: “I started training with Lana eight months ago. I wasn’t happy with any aspect of my life and it showed with how I was treating my body. Lana is the type of trainer to change your mind about fitness and hold you accountable in a way that fits with your lifestyle.
She motivates you from within and doesn’t let you give up. If you fall off the wagon, she will get you back on, no matter how long it takes. I have struggled throughout my journey; changing jobs, moving, and break-ups, but she has always been there, not only as a trainer, but a friend. I could have the worst day, week, or month but I always make sure I meet with her because not only does working out help, but she is so supportive and understanding! In the past eight months, we’ve experimented with different types of workouts and figured out what works best for me and my body along with what I enjoy the most to keep me motivated and focused on my goals. I am seeing great results and I always look forward to going to the gym for a workout with her. I was really hesitant to work with a trainer in the beginning, but if I didn’t get Lana I don’t think I would still be on my fitness journey.” - Carolyn
