Wonderful Words





“After training with Nick for almost a year now, I would be more than happy to recommend him to any of my friends, family or co-workers.  He has helped me set and reach a wide range of fitness goals: weight loss, strength training and over all physical appearances.  Nick has an excellent understanding of the human body and its biomechanics, while describing how it personally relates to me. By combining the two, he is able to develop an all inclusive fitness program tailored to literally, whatever I desire…

When I started training with Nick I had been working out seriously for a little over a year. Through several life changes I had motivated myself to start eating right and exercising. I had reached a plateau that I could not get past on my own. I had never worked out with a personal trainer before and was a little apprehensive about it. Visible images of “The Biggest Loser” flew through my head, which led me to feel no need for that kind of motivation. I was looking for someone to teach me how to accomplish my goals, NOT force me to do them.

After speaking to several trainers, I settled on Nick and could not be happier!

Since I had never worked with a trainer, nor did I follow any kind of fitness program at that time, Nick ran me through several assessments in order to tailor a program that was right for me. During this time, we spoke about and agreed upon obtainable goals. As my strength and endurance quickly advanced,  Nick would then create a completely different program design, while educating me entirely to what the program was designed to achieve .  Each one more challenging than the last. He introduced me to exercise philosophies and techniques that I personally would have never been exposed to without his precise tutelage.

There are many words to describe Nick: knowledgeable, professional, motivational, and articulate to name some. His best characteristic is his openness. Several times throughout our workouts, there where aspects that were not working for me. Nick would then tweak my program in a way that allowed me to reach my goals much quicker and efficiently.

I would be more than happy to recommend Nick to anyone looking to advance their personal fitness to new heights.”

Nick was the right personal trainer for me during this past year. I learned how to use my body correctly to avoid injuries; something I had experienced when working out in the past. My posture and confidence improved and, of course, I feel better because I look better. I liked how he always mixed up my routine, not only so I didn’t get bored, but also to fatigue different muscles. His after-workout massages and stretches were the best part. Not only did they help relieve soreness from the workout, but also addressed back, hip and leg problems caused by too many hours sitting in front of a computer.

“Last summer I spent about 15 weeks training with Nick. That time really changed my life. It was the best I have looked and felt my entire life and I have been going to the gym or working out in some way since I was in high school. Nick’s work ethic, knowledge of the human body, routines and patience are commendable. He was also very easy to work with. I look forward to working with him again and would highly recommend his services to anyone who wants to change their life, or just to have a nice ass!”

Nick definitely puts the “personal” in personal trainer.  He makes it his mission not only to create an amazing workout to transform his clients physically, but also mentally.  Nick is extremely creative with his time with you–he tends to your personal goals with a mixture of standard exercises and exercises that you would never see in a standard workout book.  Because of this, I always left feeling that I had really accomplished a lot and was getting special treatment.  Additionally, Nick pushes you to perform beyond your limits, showing what the phrase “mind over matter” really means.

This is my personal recommendation for Nick Brucker. Until just recently, he has been my personal trainer for a few months. I found him to be consistently pleasant, always with dedication and a smile.


Besides being a joy to work with, Nick watched closely. He readily corrected technique errors and explained the best way to train effectively. He also has a very good understanding of training programs and adjusted the combinations of cardio, strength training, and flexibility according to my goals and needs. Additionally, he upheld conversations and tracked my progress to make sure I was where I wanted to be and always motivated me with positive reinforcement.


I  HIGHLY recommend Nick as a personal trainer!”

Nick Brucker helped me to get back on track. His unique combination of strength training and plyometric conditioning forced my body into another level of conditioning. – Andrew Alperin



I was getting married in 6 months and I wanted to look my best for the wedding.  With Nick’s guidance in both nutrition and exercise, I easily achieved my goals in time.  Most of the credit goes to Nick, normally I’m terrible with exercise. :)   When it comes to personal training, Nick is the only person I’d recommend.

“After having done a few sessions with various personal trainers, I randomly came across Nick. The trainers I’d worked with in the past had all felt very disconnected and disengaged – like they were “just doing their job”. Nick’s dedication and passion are remarkable and very rare, and once you hear his personal journey, you become even more convinced that HE definitely can help you. He is not only a remarkable trainer, but a huge inspiration to all! I highly recommend him as a trainer!”

– Annika Sundberg



“Thanks to Nick, I was able to heal my back when I was in immense amount of pain. I had no idea what was going on with it.  If it wasn’t for nick, I wouldn’t know where I’d be and possibly may have had to start over on many things. I find it amazing, and extremely rare how this one recommendation from a friend changed my life! I am forever greatful for Nick as a trainer, and as a person in my life.”

“I lead a very chaotic lifestyle, working in local politics while having a part time job is not only time consuming, but also draining. I enjoy working out and being fit, but it is just so hard to do. One day while I was at work I decided enough is enough! I looked around and saw so many people who were unsatisfied with their physique and yet, did absolutely nothing to change it. I was not about to become that way…


At this time I had come to know Nick in passing. He seemed very nice and humble. Right from the git go you could tell he loves what he does just by looking at his athletic physic. I asked him for advice, and rather then make me feel small and ignorant, he took his time to explain things to me and answered all of my questions. At the end of our little conversation he says to me “Let me help you out. Give me just 3 to 5 hours a week and I will change the way you view fitness from here-on out.” I must say, that was the biggest understatement I ever heard…


When we worked together he challenged me in every physical capacity: strength, cardiovascular endurance, coordination, flexibility etc. Every time I walked away from our workouts I was drenched in sweat and exhausted but, I was extremely satisfied. Nick always made me feel good and always challenged me while exceeding to new heights. He diversified my base of knowledge in fitness, nutrition and supplementation. When I met him I was barely 165lbs with some definition in my overall physique, but now I am a lean 180lbs with incredible definition, and for the first time ever I can see my abs like never before!!


Currently, I work too far away to see Nick on a regular basis, although I still carry the lessons and values he’s taught me everyday that I workout and every time I am about to make a meal decision. I still text him with questions and he still answers them the same way he always did; efficiently, effectively, and accurately.”
