“It’s a great day for fitness!” Those are the words that I heard when I first met Nick Walejeski. Little did I know those words would change my entire way of living. Just over a year ago, I was an insecure, unhappy, overweight 30 year old, weighing 208 lbs with increasing health problems. I had been struggling with my weight for years and knew that I wanted to lose weight and get healthy, but simply did not know what to do. I was at a loss. Nick changed that.
Rarely do you find someone with such knowledge, dedication and professionalism. Nick’s passion is ALWAYS evident. He is constantly encouraging and at the same time challenging you through your workout. It still impresses me how committed he is to giving his clients the best possible training while keeping the workouts fun and challenging.
It has been just over a year since I started my journey with Nick and not only have I lost 60 lbs, I am also involved in his triTRAINed program and will be completing my 4th triathlon! I am in the best physical and mental shape that I have ever been, thanks to Nick and all of the excellent programs he offers. Thank you for believing in me Nick, you have changed my family’s life forever! Forever grateful.
Nick is truly an amazing trainer and person. When I first met Nick, I weighed over 300 pounds and had never done any physical activity. Nick was patient and kind and taught me fitness fundamentals. Today, I still struggle with my weight, but weigh about 100 pounds less and am continually motivated to keep up with my physical activity. Nick pushed me to stick with it and took me from not being able to walk more than 20 minutes on a treadmill, to completing a sprint triathlon. Nick helped me change my eating habits, become aware of my inner strengths and instilled a sense of accomplishment in me. Nick is a tough trainer, but whips you into shape in a way that is fun and makes you feel great after a session. The effects of training with Nick and the improved body that came with it have enhanced every aspect of my life, I can't recommend Nick highly enough.
A little over a year ago, at the age of 54, I decided I needed to start a regular fitness program but I was scared. Nick changed my fear into “I can do it.” I began with personal training sessions with Nick and within one month I felt like a different person. I had more energy and more confidence in myself. I started to believe that anything is possible. All because of Nick’s “can do” attitude and believing in me.
He asked me to join his tri-TRAINed program and that’s all I needed. After three triathlons and placing 4th place in my age group, I realized that anyone can accomplish their goals no matter your age. Because of Nick’s positive attitude, commitment, sense of humor and simply caring about you as a person, I was able to go beyond what I thought I could ever do!Nick has changed my life and I will always be grateful. I will never stop exercising because Nick makes exercise fun! I count my blessings that I met Nick and I look forward to continuing my journey with him. Thank you.
I would like to take a moment to say Thank you for everything you have done for my family and I. You have done so much to motivate me and show me how to live a healthy, positve and ACTIVE lifestyle. You have helped me become a stronger person, both physically and mentally. You have taught me that by pushing myself I can do things that I never believed I could have ever done and for that I cannot thank you enough! Thank you for being such a great trainer, coach and friend.
