Nick has had a passion for general fitness and bodybuilding from a very early age. As a young child Nick was next door neighbors to the Potts family with current owner Brad Potts and his mother Blythe babysitting the wild boys next door. This is where Nick’s passion for weightlifting and bodybuilding was developed. Watching his mother and father train with Brad and discovery of the book and movie pumping iron ignited his inspiration to one day be a bodybuilder just like those of the golden age. At the age of 12 Nick began personal training with Brad and which has fostered a close friendship that lasts till this day. Nick has been in and around community gyms throughout his entire life with his first job working the front desk at Monon Fitness Center (Formerly Pottsy’s Fitness Center).
From there he attended Indiana University in Bloomington, graduating in 2015 with a degree in Informatics and a Minor in business. While attending IU Nick found a home away from home at the Iron Pit gym, a locally owned and operated gym on the south side of Bloomington. Nick continued his fitness education and journey under the tutelage of Ryan Stanton, an IFBB Professional Men’s Physique bodybuilder. After returning to the Indianapolis area Nick found Peak Fitness as an ideal facility to train and maintain the community gym feel that he has come to love. As the covid epidemic surged and Peak was transferring ownership, Nick switched to a different facility believing Peak was closing. One fateful day he was driving by Peak and saw cars in the parking lot and decided to call and see what was going on. On the other line was a distinct voice that could only belong to one-man, longtime friend and mentor Brad Potts. This is where the stars aligned, and Nick wanted to renew his passion with training and working at Peak Fitness.
Nick wears many hats at Peak from watching the desk, assisting in the upkeep and maintenance of the facility, and anything else he can do to keep the gym the amazing place it is. He loves interacting with other members and forming new friendships with the amazing members of Peak Fitness. As one who has never met a stranger, please do not hesitate to walk up to Nick with anything you may need.
