Bodyweight Strength & Mobility Coach and Dance Teacher

My athletic journey began in middle school when I started competing in volleyball at state level in Russia. I have also been involved with calisthenics (bodyweight training) since my teenage years and have trained in many styles including street workout, gymnastics strength training and Ido Portal style locomotion.
I also developed a passion for Latin dance (salsa, bachata, cha cha) in my mid 20's and have taken it to the level of event performances and national competition and have taught social dancing classes and workshops.
My coaching practice focuses on helping people achieve their strength and mobility goals through consistent practice supported by structured systems and habits, quality education and helping clients improve awareness of their body and mind.
I am against quick fixes and ‘no pain no gain’ philosophy. I believe that strength & movement training should be approached as a marathon, not a sprint. My mottos are “consistency trumps intensity” and “slow and steady wins the race”.
“Nik has shared his passion for health and fitness with enthusiasm, patience and energy, while demonstrating deep knowledge of a variety of topics - body movement, strength and mobility, nutrition, meditation and balance in whatever you do.
Learning from Nik has been awesome, fun and professional at the same time.
Thank you Nik for sharing so much with us, including your big smile!”
