I've been working out with Nick for 8 years. Due to a genetic condition, I was diagnosed with a form of Asthma. Although I ran, biked, and skied, I was in jeopardy of losing my job due to my medical situation. My "blow tests" were substandard and with 13 years left in my career, I was looking at losing hundreds of thousands of dollars. With the encouragement of my wife, I tried Nick's Conditioning class. With his constant attention to my breathing techniques, I passed my "blow test" 6 weeks later! I continue with Nick because he keeps us in shape all year round to be able to do anything at anytime. He keeps my respiratory system in top condition. Two and half years ago I ended up in the hospital for 5 days with a serious lung infection. I lost 30 lbs that I could not afford to lose. It was a long road back. I truly believe if I hadn't been in the shape I was in before getting sick, I might not be here today. Nick is cheap health insurance. If you don't stay in shape and eat right, you'll pay for it in medical costs and medications down the road. I still have my job and I still have my life.
