He has worked closely with numerous professional athletes on improving speed, and has done consulting work on speed performance for various sports programs of all levels. He is highly proficient in sprinting techniques and sprinting biomechanics, as well as the physiological requirements of running fast.

Over the last decade Nick's popularity has grown in the baseball world. He is best known as Manny Machado's performance coach, and has consulted with professional and collegiate baseball teams for baseball specific strength and performance training. His training methods have been identified as key factors in players gaining 5 to 10 miles per hour on their fast ball and just as much on their exit velocity off bat.

Local teams train under his tutelage year round, and individual athletes come from around the nation to train with him to develop their speed and explosive power. Currently, LOX Performance has become a world leader in developing exit velo, and pitching velocity in baseball with Nick's power program.

In track and Field, Nick has produced some of the fastest 100, 200, and 400 meter femal sprinters in Florida High School history. His current group of female sprinters are consistently breaking meet records and posting national best times for the year
