Nick Shorter has always been active and immersed in fitness. In college, Nick studied Kinesiology, played basketball and lifted weights. He fell in love with strength training and spent time learning more about exercise science and its positive effects. He loved the feeling of beating his personal bests when it came to lifting weights, but didn’t feel that the gym was as supportive of an environment as it could be.
Nick’s wife Keisy had become a part of The Perfect Workout and after seeing the family-like culture of the trainers, he too followed in her footsteps. Once he completed his extensive Personal Trainer certification, Nick joined the River Oaks studio and ultimately transferred to Cypress where he trains today.
Knowing that Nick gets to make a difference and really listen to his clients is critical to their success together. “Active listening is a vital part of my time with clients. When I understand their wants and needs, I can truly customize a workout to them and their goals.”
A big personal benefits Nick has seen from slow-motion strength training is that he gets to spend more time with his family now that he’s not in the gym all the time. His training combined with changed eating habits has rewarded him with a new slimmed down look — and his family always comments on how lean he’s gotten!
Having been a longtime student of exercise and nutrition principles, Nick feels like he’s at home with The Perfect Workout. It’s the perfect place for him to help others work through their health and fitness obstacles. He looks forward to coach even more clients on their own personal health and fitness journeys in only 20 minutes, twice a week!
When Nick is not in the studio, he’s spending time with his wife and two sons. Whether it be playing baseball, reading, listening to music, or playing dragons and monsters with his boys
