Revisiting young entrepreneur, Nick Showman, as he navigates his first year of owning and operating a gym, it’s clear to see that this young man is making a positive impact in the lives of his athletes while forming a coaching philosophy of his own. When elitefts™ first featured Showman’s gym, Showtime Strength and Performance, back in December, he’d only been open for business for three months.

Now, we’ve returned with a whole new set of questions on what Nick has learned in his first year of operation, how he approaches youth athlete training, and how his coaching philosophy has been influenced by training a wide array of clientele ranging in age from young athletes to elderly trainees.
