For over a decade we have pursued one overarching question: "What is the most effective and efficient approach to enhance our performance pertaining to the activities we love to do?" This has led us to discover that the best path is the simplest one. We realize that with a complete understanding of the "why" behind it all, you can build confident self-sustainability and be in control of your own preparation for the remainder of your life. The concepts and mechanics that govern the human body may be complex by nature, but a baseline understanding is all that is necessary. By understanding the relationship between anatomy, physiology, and biomechanics we are able to minimize injuries and maximize performance, void of a massive time commitment. We teach these concepts, complete with optimum movements, proper intensity, timing, and recovery strategies specific to the sports and activities that you engage in. We know that everyone is different, which means everyone deserves a plan specific to them. We aim to teach you the concepts behind our philosophy before we teach a plan specific to your current goal, ultimately giving you the ability to adjust your plan as your goals change.
How We Got Here
Since high school, I have been passionate about discovering methods to maximize sport performance which led me to pursue a degree in Sport & Exercise Science at the University of Central Florida. During my studies, my passion for understanding injury prevention and performance development continued to grow, especially in the context of helping others achieve their goals. I minored in entreprenuership while the vision for Elevated developed. After college, I found a mentor, Derek Decater, who shared similar ideologies and visions. While working with him, I furthered my education of kinesiology and continued my development of business management skills. Inspired by what I had learned, I decided to act on my own novel visions and launched Elevated Sports Performance. I obtained a C.S.C.S, certifying me as a strength and conditioning specialist. For three years, I have worked with athletes of varying sports at Skyline High School, specializing in developing strength and conditioning programs specific to their respective sports. After researching and inquiring with those living active lifestyles, I have re-aligned my visions for Elevated Sports performance with a greater focus on teaching people of all ages and backgrounds how to take control of their physical preparation. We do this by inspiring and guiding you to build sustainable daily habits geared towards staying strong and mobile, allowing you to continue to perform the activities that you love.

Nick's Sporting Background
Nick grew up in Orlando, FL were he primarily played baseball through his youth. A year before high school, he transitioned into football. Enticed by the physical nature and strategy of the game, he played nothing else for 6 years, besides two years of track to build speed. Two years into football, he developed his passion for performance development after realizing it was the only way he could compete at the highest level. His senior year he moved to Seattle, WA and played a key role in Skyline High Schools 2009 state championship victory as a running back, rushing for 118 yards. Maurice Clarke, a Jamaican olympic sprinter in his prime, played a pivotal role as Nick's speed coach prior to that season. Following high school, Nick went on to play college football for 2 years before discovering the sport of rugby. He would tell you that rugby is enticing for its continuous nature, but more importantly the heightened awareness that comes with colliding with nothing but your muscles for protection. His first year of rugby he played a key role as a center for the University of Central Florida, ultimately making it to the national championship game. After graduating from UCF he continued the sport of rugby for two years with the Seattle Saracens. During that time, he developed a passion for climbing mountains and has since moved on from rugby in order to maximize his vertical passion. His favorite sub category of alpinism is high alpine rock climbing. His notable alpine accomplishments over the last 3 years include Mt. Rainier, Mt. Adams, Mt. Hood, Mt. St. Helens, El Dorado, Sahale Peak, The Tooth, Mt. Stuart, Dragontail Peak, Thompson Peak, and Dip Top Peak. Most of those have come alongside his girlfriend who is his most common climbing partner. His notable multi-pitch rock climbing accomplishments include a free solo first ascent of the NW Face of Thompson Peak in the sawtooth range of Idaho (1,000 ft , 5.6), a free solo ascent of "The Tooth" in Snoqualmie Pass, WA, "Overhang Bypass" on Lower Cathedral Rock in Yosemite National Park, and "Snake" on the Chief in Squamish, BC. He enjoys snowboarding in the winter, often visiting Alpental after the storms roll through. He also ran through the finish line of the St. George Half-Ironman a couple of years ago as part of challenge with a friend. His most common activity is roller blading and more often than not he chooses it for local transportation near his home in downtown Seattle. His only regret in life is not pursuing short track speed skating.
