After spending a few years chasing the dream in the NRL system with the Sydney Roosters and Cronulla Sharks, Nick fell short and returned to NZ to study Sports Science at Wintec.

Having spent significant hours in the world of Strength & Conditioning as an athlete, Nick began working for NZRL helping prepare young athlete's for the step up into NRL. Eventually Nick took up an opportunity at Waikato University as the Health and Fitness Manager, encouraging people to live fitter and healthier lifestyles.

Nick's journey into CrossFit is similar to any competitive sports person. Searching for a purpose to continue training. After joining 3216 in 2017 to improve his mobility and learn to olympic lift, he fell in love with the box, quickly excelling as an athlete and has been here ever since.

In terms of coaching, Nick challenges people to become the best version of themselves, sets a high bar and then pushes people to achieve it. He prides himself in getting people to go beyond their capacity and loves the strategic and tactical components of CrossFit efficiency and competition.

When he's not in the box working or training, you'll find him out adventuring with his 1 year old son Bodhi.

Favourite Training Type: Loves a chipper. The more exercises the better - not a fan of Turkish getups or wall walks
