Nick has coached at CFSBK since 2011. Nick fell in love with rowing in 9th grade on the Potomac River, and accrued 13 years of competitive rowing experience, culminating in racing in the men’s quadruple sculls at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. For years afterward he worked out as he always had—running, lifting, rowing on the erg, sometimes trying to do handstands—until his wife convinced him to try capoeira, and, later, CrossFit.
Nick found out about CFSBK when he met Coach Margie, and soon thereafter became CFSBK’s resident rowing coach. He eventually began coaching CrossFit group classes and training clients one-on-one. Nick still conducts a few rowing workshops a year and has prepared a group of CFSBKers for CRASH-Bs, the preeminent international indoor rowing championship in Boston, every year since 2010. The three-month program mimics the kind of specialized training that elite athletes pursue.
Nick is a CrossFit Level 2 coach and has attended Robb’s Wolf’s Paleo Solution seminar and Kelly Starrett’s Mobility and Recovery Seminar.
