So what’s your excuse?
At the age of 16, a near fatal traffic accident changed my life forever. After the doctors at the hospital told me I would never walk again, I became overweight and discouraged. That’s when I decided to stop focusing on what I couldn’t do and work on what I could do. And I soon figured out that what I could do was become stronger than everybody else.
Somehow I managed to find the determination, mindset and personal strength to transform my life from a debilitating tragedy into a personal triumph. As a professional speaker, author, professional bodybuilder, champion wheelchair ballroom dancer, and personal trainer, I now use my enthusiasm, vision, convictions, abilities, and life experiences to reach out, to inspire and give hope to others, especially those unaware of the personal strength they can tap into if only they will believe and try. I use my story as an example to help transform thousands of individuals – from professional athletes to senior executives – as well as organizations and corporations across the country. By following my mantra of “If Nick can do it, anyone can,” I inspire others to break through whatever is holding them back to achieve new levels of peak performance and success.
ISSA helped educate me about the scientific aspects of bodybuilding. Even though I became well known in the fitness world for my dedication and expertise at wheelchair bodybuilding, I also knew an ISSA certification would give me an additional edge. Now I’m constantly continuing my education through ISSA in many areas so I will have the educational background to help me achieve my goal of motivating others to become the best they can be.
To share my knowledge with others I started what is now the largest online wheelchair bodybuilding community, WheelchairBodybuilding.com, and am also a global promoter of the sport of wheelchair bodybuilding. My dream is to open a chain of 55,000 – 60,000 square foot non-profit gyms across the U.S. where I can use my expertise as a certified ISSA Trainer to train others and raise funds for my Wheelchair Athletics Foundation. I tell all my clients what I told myself a long time ago…NO EXCUSES!
