Nigel has had a passion for exercise from a young age. He played a multitude of sports from his early childhood including playing rep hockey and lacrosse for numerous years. He has always loved being on a team and competing. Nigel was first exposed to exercise training during his high school years. He learned training in the summer was essential to success in sport performance. Aside from becoming a better athlete, Nigel loved working out with others due to the camaraderie and the amazing atmosphere of a gym.
Nigel’s first experience as a fitness coach began in high school. After going through his own team training, Nigel would volunteer to assist younger sport teams in their training. He found coaching extremely rewarding as he got to work with young, inspired athletes who also loved to exercise and improve. Those experiences helped shape Nigel as a coach and influenced him to pursue training and coaching in the future.
Nigel recently graduated from the University of Guelph Humber. He received an Honours degree in Kinesiology and a diploma in Fitness and Health Promotion. Along his undergraduate degree, he did a co-op semester here at Pure Motivation Fitness. Although it was a shorter experience then expected (due to the Covid-19 pandemic), Nigel discovered PMF was a great place to learn, train and thrive. Nigel is excited to be back at PMF, and is eager to share his kin knowledge with clients, and continue to learn and improve from fellow coaches and athletes.
