Nicholas Coffman

 
I WOULD RATHER BE ACTIVE OUTDOORS THAN INDOORS. I have been ENGAGED IN SOCCER AND WRESTLING since A YOUNG AGE. PLAYING  WITH SOME OF THE PREMIER SOCCER CLUBS IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AND HAVING AN UNDEFEATED WRESTLING SEASON DURING MY SENIOR YEAR OF HIGH SCHOOL. I CONTINUED TO WRESTLE BRIEFLY IN COLLEGE BEFORE JOINING THE US MARINE CORPS IN 1996, WHICH CONTINUED MY FITNESS JOURNEY.
AT THE END OF MY MILITARY SERVICE, I DECIDED TO CHANNEL MY LOVE FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY AND MY MARINE CORPS EXPERIENCE. IN 2001 I BEGAN TRAINING UNDER THE WATCHFUL EYES OF GREAT AND SOME NOW FAMOUS FITNESS COACHES. I THEN OBTAINED MY CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINING CERTIFICATION FROM THE NATIONAL EXERCISE & SPORTS TRAINERS ASSOCIATION (NESTA) IN 2005 AND LAUNCHED MY OWN PERSONAL TRAINING BUSINESS. AT THIS POINT, I WAS LUCKY TO HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY COACHING NUMEROUS PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES, RADIO PERSONALITIES, POLICE OFFICERS, FIREMAN, MILITARY PERSONNEL, FBI AGENTS, CORPORATE GROUPS AND AMERICA'S WORK FORCE. GAINING VERY VALUABLE EXPERIENCE OVER THE NEXT FEW YEARS BY CONTINUING TO COACH ALONGSIDE ATLANTA'S TOP FITNESS COMPETITORS, BODYBUILDERS, FUNCTIONAL TRAINERS, WEIGHT LOSS SPECIALISTS AND OTHER FITNESS PROFESSIONALS.
 
REALIZING LONG AGO THAT MANY PEOPLE HAVE A NEED TO GET FIT, MAKE NEW HABITS AND LEARN TO USE THEIR BODIES MORE EFFICIENTLY. I HAVE LEARNED MANY FORMULAS THAT WORK FOR DIFFERENT LEVELS OF FITNESS AND MANY DIFFERENT LIFESTYLES. WITH OVER 20 YEARS OF FITNESS EXPERIENCE, I GET RESULTS FROM BEGINNERS TO ADVANCED ATHLETES. I AM PROUD TO SAY THAT MY BIGGEST ACHIEVEMENTS HAVE COME FROM COACHING CLIENTS TO LIVE HEALTHIER AND MORE FULFILLING LIVES IN WHICH THEY WERE NO LONGER DEPENDENT ON HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE AND HIGH CHOLESTEROL MEDICINES..., AWESOME!!
 
ACCOMPLISHING MANY PHYSICAL CHALLENGES FROM SPORTS, MILITARY, PHYSIQUE GAINS, MODELING, CLIMBING MOUNTAINS, HIKING LONG DISTANCE, 
SURVIVAL OUTDOORS AND RUNNING MARATHONS, I DON'T KNOW WHERE MY LIFE'S JOURNEY WILL GO NEXT. ULTIMATELY I DO KNOW BUILDING A CAREER AROUND 
HELPING OTHERS GOING  THROUGH THE TOUGH TRAINING, LEARNING CURVES, NEW HABITS, EMOTIONAL STRUGGLES AND IN THE END WITNESSING THAT PERSON ACCOMPLISH THEIR GOAL, WOW, THERE IS NOTHING LIKE IT.
