Dr. Nick grew up in a household of athletes, and needless to say they were just a little competitive…about everything. His competitive nature carried over allowing him to be tapped into his body and its performance. His fascination with the body also created curiosity on how hard he could push it which allowed him to excel in various sports including baseball, track, and football. Dr. Nick went to college to play football and in his sophomore year he received his 6th concussion and finally threw in the towel (a little overdue, huh?). He then decided to push his body in a different way, and started competing in triathlons. Long story short, he competed for 9 years as a triathlete with most of them at the 70.3 or Half Ironman distance. The last triathlon he competed in was Ironman Canada. Six months prior to the Ironman, he tore almost all the ligaments in his right shoulder. He couldn’t swim, bike, or run due to the intense pain but because of his competitive nature he said, “Let’s see what this body is made of!” At the time of the race it was his longest swim, longest bike, and longest run he had done!Learn More
