    I loved everything about working with Odyssey Performance Training. Nick pushed me to be a better person and athlete. He built my confidence up when I wasn’t confident in myself and in my knee. I have truly improved thanks to his consistent support and motivation. After failing my sports test 3 times I felt discouraged, however with the help from Nick I passed my sports test with flying colors.

  • Allison Hubbard

    I began working with Nick a couple years after having ACL and MCL reconstruction surgery and he immediately set up a plan to work on deficiencies-gaining the proper strength, honing in on movement patterns and monitoring while progressing through the phases of my rehab. Nick played a key role in unraveling a gigantic mess with my knee. Nick cares about his role as a sports performance trainer, cares about his clients and it shows in his work. I am beyond grateful for what he has provided for me and given me a quality of life and I am back to playing softball and my active lifestyle again.  I would highly recommend Nick as a sports performance trainer and he sets the bar high.

  • Melissa T

    Nick is one of the best trainers you’ll ever work with! He comes to sessions prepared and ready to give you a great workout.

  • Ashley Krause

    Nick has been amazingly professional and his knowledge about the human body will surpass any other trainer out there. We have been doing training with him for 9 months and the results have been amazing! Highly recommend couples training too...he is so good at making individual workouts but as a couple we still get to spend quality time together. I highly recommend Nick, you won’t regret it!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First off, I sit down with the student and I want to know as much as they can tell me about their Goals, Injury History, and Training History. Then I perform a simple, but through foundational movement assessment, which from that I can make an efficient and customized training program for the student.  


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been a Human Performance Trainer for almost 10 years. For a little over 7 years I worked in a Physical Therapy Clinic where I collaborated with Physical Therapists and assisted with upper level exercise programming on a wide variety of upper and lower extremity injuries and surgeries.

I have my Bachelors of Science Degree in Human Performance and Sport with an emphasis in Adult Fitness and Exercise Science from Metropolitan State University of Denver. 

I have my CFSC (Certified Functional Strength Coach) from Mike Boyle Strength and Conditioning. 

I have my PN-1 (Precision Nutrition Level 1) certification from Precision Nutrition. 

I have my PES (Performance Enhancement Specialist) from the National Academy of Sports Medicine. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I do have a standard pricing system that can easily be found on my website at: https://odysseyperformancetraining.com/services-and-prices/

The first session/initial evaluation is complimentary to the client. 

My pricing system only goes as high as 3 sessions per week. However, if you would like to do more than 3 sessions per week, you will get more of a discount per session. 

If there are any additional questions about the pricing, you can reach me directly by Email or Phone. 


How did you get started teaching?

I have been a Human Performance Trainer for almost 10 years. For a little over 7 years I worked in a Physical Therapy Clinic where I collaborated with Physical Therapists and assisted with upper level exercise programming on a wide variety of upper and lower extremity injuries and surgeries. Because of that unique experience as a performance trainer, I acquired a niche in Injury Reduction Training that is extremely beneficial to all of my clients. 


What types of students have you worked with?

Anything from a common ankle sprain, hamstring strain, and various types of common muscular strains to more invasive surgeries such as total joint replacements, ACL's, and rotator cuff tears to name a few. I have worked with adolescents as young as 9 to individuals in advanced age as old as 84. I have worked with many individuals with weight management programs. I have also worked with recreational, amateur, and professional athletes of all ages, abilities, and various types of sports. Last but not least, I have worked with individuals with neurological disorders such as Parkinson's, Multiple Sclerosis, and Acute Transverse Myelitis. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I worked with a client that has Parkinson's, and believe it or not with my exercise expertise and her consistency and hardwork she made a lot of progress in those several years her and I worked together. At one point, she went to her neurologists for an annual assessment and he was impressed at how high functioning she actually is.  


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

The simple advice I would give is to look at years of experience and the types of clientale that the Trainer has worked with. This won't tell you everything, however, this information can tell you a great deal about a Performance Trainer. 

Also, a lot of Performance Trainers give complimentary sessions at a discount or at not cost to the client. I personally would take advantage of this and get to know the Trainer personally and make sure that it's a good fit for you both. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

There are a lot of questions anyone could ask a Performance Trainer. The top 3 questions I would recommend asking are: 

1. How long have you been a Trainer? 

2. What types of client's have you worked with? 

3. How can you help me with my goals?
