Nate comes to us all the way from Massachusetts! In high school, Nate was a Division I recruit for cross country and was ranked top 25 in the state before years of injuries and surgeries cut his running career short.
As a recovering athlete, he experienced many of the shortcomings of other physical therapy and healthcare offices. “Playing sports and competing was my way of feeling accepted and I felt like there was a disconnect between my goals and how I was handled by surgeons, therapists, etc.”
After graduating Colby-Sawyer College in 2015, Nate became a physical therapy aide for a local office in Rhode Island and an assistant personal training director at an LA Fitness. At this time, he also picked up a position working at his town’s animal shelter. This wasn’t for money, but rather an excuse to play with animals. He currently works as a personal trainer where he’s an educator and teaches others how to train and live a healthier lifestyle.
He uses his shortcomings and experiences as an athlete to help clients persevere through challenges and adversity. Nate is working on becoming a strength and conditioning specialist and hopes to continue helping people live pain-free and healthier lives.
