Since 1988, Nico has trained individuals and groups to improve their abilities, both mentally and physically. He is a Certified Personal Trainer whose interest is your health and fitness. His main focus is on demonstrating exercises correctly to avoid injury, and teaching his clients how to manage their past injuries, while getting the most out of their personal training sessions.

Nico follows the Paleolithic or Primal Diet, which is a natural and utterly-simple way of eating that promotes dramatic health benefits and weight loss, without calorie counting or portion control.  It produces powerful results, more quickly and effectively than other diets or weight loss programs. This is because it is the only diet that is coded in our genes. It resembles those foods that were available during the evolution of our species, before agriculture and animal husbandry.

At 70 years old, he is a true example of what is possible when your diet and physical activities are implemented the way nature intended them to be.
