We were also looking to organize some surfing lessons for our group of young children. We learned about Nick Holt Fitness through other internet reviews and emailed... More

I met Nick and Julie during my stay in Tamarindo . Not only are they knowledgable and professional personal trainers but they are both amazing people. Definitely check them out when you are in Costa Rica!

February 2016: here in paradise, but I can't swim, can't surf, in fact, can't lift my arm over my head. Shoulders are blasted, have been for some time, so long, I don't really try anymore. Then I hear about Nick Holt and Functional Movement Therapy, so in desperation I sign up and commit to 8 sessions over 4 weeks. Day... More

Looking for good workout option while on vacation, I found Nick through a Google search. I was glad I found Nick as the workout he designed was a great option to another beach run. He was incredibly informative and flexible with his training - 'my' workout ended up as a family workout as my wife and daughters (ages 7, 10... More

My wife and I, both regular visitors to Costa Rica, were lucky enough to find Nick and his 'gym on the beach' in Tamarindo. We were somewhat new to TRX, but we had a couple great workouts with Nick during our stay. I've spent quite a bit of time with personal trainers over the years, and I will say Nick... More

I needed to stay on schedule with my training while on vacation and found Nick on the internet. Luckily, he had available time when I was in Costa Rica. The workout was challenging for me and the view of the beach wasn't bad either. Thanks for keeping me on track! If I ever make it back to CR, I will... More

I contacted Nick for a 1:1 workout on the beach and was very glad I did. Nick is very knowledgeable and was fully prepared to answer all my questions. We had a great workout using TRX and bags right on the beach. I will definitely contact him again during my next trip to Tamarindo. Excellent and fun workout Nick, thanks!

While on vacation this past month we had the pleasure of working out with Nick. Nick put together a great series of strength training circuits and the best part was that not only was it challenging but also right on the beach! In fact, we were able to train as a family which made it even more enjoyable. We would... More
