Certainly worth booking a session while in town! Nick is great, knows what he is talking about and the location is perfect. The workout only consisted of TRX bands, so I might not book several times in a row. But I was able to get a great workout in while adjacent to the beach, AND flanked by monkeys! Certainly you...

We wanted to continue our training while in Costa Rica and Nick Holt was a perfect fit. He is knowledgeable, personable and a great guy. Training in the gym as well as on the beach was just the experience we wanted. If you are traveling to Tamarindo and looking for a great fitness experience I highly recommend Nick Holt Fitness....

I joined in with friends on TRX sessions with Nick throughout Christmas and New Year. In the shade, overlooking the beach, cool breeze - just idyllic. I'm a bit of a TRX-er and Nick did not disappoint, he really knows his stuff and has a passion for you to get the most out of your sessions whatever your goals. Highly... More

Nick is a great instructor and will keep you motivated. He has the ability to create an interesting and challenging workout every time. After having had regular classes I noticed a big improvement in my strength over a fairly short period of time. I will be back for more.

Nick gives very specific guidance in my exercise and nutrition program. I like that I can consult with him online.

Nick knows his training. He is fit himself. He knows the body. He explains what you need to do and what it is working. He keeps you moving! Fun but excellent!

My husband and I did four weeks personal training with Nick, and he's a great coach! Not only is he very informative, he's incredibly encouraging. If you're wanting to get your sweat on while you're in Tamarindo, he's totally worth booking a session (or two, or three, or four) with!

We stayed with 6 families just north of Tamarindo at Las Mareas for a week in July, and Nick held two 30 minute sessions each on 2 separate mornings with 10 participants of varied age (12-42), physiques, and physical conditioning levels. Nick accommodated the circumstances masterfully, kept it fun and intense, and was motivating and encouraging. He was attentive to... More

I was able to train with Nick for several months this past year. My goals were to slim down and improve strength and endurance after having my first child. I really saw an improvement within the first 2 weeks and could see an improvement in paddling while surfing. I plan on training again with him in the near future. Thank... More

I trained with Nick last week during a quick trip to Tamarindo to run the (half) marathon. He provided a full-body TRX-based session on the beach. Couldn't have been better. Nick is a thoughtful trainer and nice guy. I enjoyed our session and was sad that I couldn't find time to schedule another one. I'm certainly going to check out... More
