Nick found his love for fitness 6 years ago when he lost 90 pounds all on his own! I was real shy, quiet, I had no confidence, no drive, didn’t know what to do with my life/career and then one day it finally hit, the source of my problem was my weight! 

After a year of an intense exercise and a nutrition regimen I dropped the 90 pounds! He transformed not only his body, but his mindset had shifted into being more positive and gave him the confidence I desperately needed! This is what I bring to the table with my clients, I’ve been in the same shoes they are in when it comes to weight loss and I know how hard it can be, but if you give a 110% to this goal the end reward is so much bigger than you can possibly imagine!

Nick’s also has helped numerous clients build strength and put on muscle! He recently did his first power lifting meet and became an official Powerlifter with the United States Powerlifting Association and plans on continue doing more meets while helping/encouraging clients do the same!

Dalton Eveland

NSCA CPT. Major: Exercise Science, NPC physique competitor

Specializations
Weight Loss
Strength Training/Conditioning
Bodybuilding
Functional Movement
MMA/Muay Thai/Boxing

My passion for fitness began when I fell in love with training in mixed martial arts and Muay Thai upon graduating high school. After I spent 6 years training and instructing group training classes, I switched over to bodybuilding, where I really started to become curious about the body’s adaptations to resistance training and nutrition. This is where my deep obsession with fitness training and motivating other to live a fit and healthy life began.  I eat, sleep, breathe fitness, and I love being apart of the transition and positive change that is made in someone else’s life. It is the most rewarding feeling ever.

Dalton has completed a one-year personal fitness training program through Parkland College, which is where he became certified through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. He is currently working on completing his Bachelor degree in Exercise Science, and is going to continue education in nutrition.

Strength Training
Weight Loss

Health and fitness has always been a huge part of my life. I played football and ran track in high school, and really got into weightlifting after graduation in 2003. I joined the US Coast Guard in 2004 where I got more in touch with fitness through the training I received. I then went to college at Southern Illinois University where I obtained my Masters in Exercise Physiology. During my time there my love for health fitness grew even more. I was a trainer at the student recreation center, President of the SIU Fitness Club, President of The Organization for Sport and Exercise Science, as well as Coordinator of Strong Survivors, an exercise and nutrition program for cancer survivors and their caregivers. This was one of the most rewarding programs I had the honor of being part of. For my own personal fitness, I am ranked in the state of Missouri and Illinois for powerlifting and nationally ranked in the EPF. I have also placed high in several bodybuilding competitions, most recently winning my Natural Pro Card in April 2017. Fitness is what I live for, and I have seen great things happen with participants that I have worked with, both physically and psychologically/emotionally, and this motivates me to continue doing what I love.

My fitness journey began at the age of 16, I was in my second semester of high school and I found myself picking classes and I came across “Strength and Conditioning I” and thought “ I wonder what that’s like?” Well that was all it took and I fell in love almost immediately and almost 16 years later I am still going strong with my love for fitness and health and my goal of helping as many people as possible! To date, I’ve been a trainer for 10 years and have enjoyed every second of it.

Shortly after becoming a trainer in 2007, I found my second love of competitive bodybuilding! This sport is unlike any other and requires sacrifice and dedication in order to be successful and it has taught me so much about myself but more importantly has helped me better train and educate my clients. I don’t want to simply have you do what I say but I also want to teach you the why and give you a rhyme to the reason.

My fitness journey would take another turn on February 3rd 2015, when a gentlemen would have a heart attack at the gym and go into cardiac arrest. With my staff notifying right away, I was able to perform CPR and save that gentlemen’s life and it was then that I knew I could do even more to help and it was then I decided to pursue a career in becoming a Paramedic Firefighter. As of December of 2017, I completed my EMT course and hope to get into a Paramedic program soon!

In short, I love fitness and I love helping people! If you have a question, need a spot or some motivating words don’t be afraid to seek me out! Look forward to meeting you!

Hobbies: Bodybuilding (turned pro in 2010), rockclimbing, drawing, listening to music and anything tattoo related
