Nick Normandin holds a Bachelors Degree in Exercise and Sports Science from Fitchburg State College with a minor in Business. He is a CrossFit Level 3 Trainer and holds CrossFit Specialty certifications in; Endurance, Olympic lifting, Gymnastics, Strongman, Mobility and Adaptive Athletes.
Nick holds a special place for endurance athletes because although he is a well rounded athlete with a history of Baseball and CrossFit, Multi-sport endurance events is where his heart is. Nick has competed in multiple CrossFit competitions, 7 Adventure races, 8 half marathons, the Boston Marathon, a 50 mile trail race, four 50K ultra trail races, over 60 triathlons from sprint distance through full Ironman’s, qualified for the USAT age group nationals in AL, as well as 10+ years of road races from 5-10K, 5 years of the Masters Swimming Association hour long swim and one year of College Baseball.
Nick specializes in adaptive training for those with physical disabilities. This is an area lacking focus within the fitness community and he wants to change that! Within the 17 years that Nick has been a trainer, he has worked with some incredibly inspiring people who have given him eye opening, hands on, trial and error exposure to this type of training. Thanks to that, Nick has a very special perspective on how to work with people with a physical disability. He sees the need and importance to maintain and gain strength, flexibility, and personal growth and feels that this area of support is lacking both from the medical and fitness side of the spectrum.
Nick has found his passion as a coach is to help develop the everyday person to set and achieve their first athletic milestone, whether it be a 5k race, triathlon, adventure race, or CrossFit competition. It is these goals that create physical results! Nick believes that anything in life can be achieved with the right determination and focus. He uses his own love of fitness to balance his life around health and encourage as many as possible to follow his lead.
