NICK ARCIAGA

Nike is a Certified Personal Trainer (Elite Trainer designation) with the International Sports Science Association; concentration in nutrition and fitness coaching. I try to focus primarily on overall wellness. I believe it's not just about looking healthy, but feeling healthy. I think nutrition and fitness go hand-in-hand. I try to be a good listener to my clients and help them reach their goals to their own accomplishments they want to reach. I have been training active military, retired military, reservists, and local amatuer MMA fighters for fitness tests and specific regiments for speed, agility, and quickness. I have also worked with the general population to provide a basic workout routine to help with mobility and functional movement throughout their daily activities. Recently, I have been training clients interested in local strongman competitions hosted between Ogden and Salt Lake City. I grew up in Layton, Utah and have always been involved in sports and recreational activities since grade school. My personal hobbies are motorcycles, restoring classic vehicles, hiking, art, and spending time with family. Currently, I am working on the following certifications through NASM: MMA Conditioning Specialist, Corrective Exercise Specialist, and Quickness, Agility, and Mobility Specialist.

BRANDON RAMIREZ

I aspire to help lift and guide people in their fitness journey beyond a healthy lifestyle. Gaining confidence through dedication and discipline are of few high values I like to include with my clients. Being a well rounded trainer is something I take to heart and enjoy continuing doing through learning in becoming a better trainer. I hope to continue pursuing PA school as I'm currently working on my athletic therapy undergrad. I'm certified through National Academy of Sports Medicine, with specialties in Kickboxing, HIIT, Aquatics, and Strength Conditioning. I take to heart playing guitar, dancing, and boxing in my free time.
