Meet your coach
Founder and Director, Nick Rees MSc, BSc, ASCC
Hi, welcome to Impetus Fitness!
Training to develop an athletic edge for Sport has been part of my life since childhood, something which fuelled my passion for Sports such as football, tennis, basketball and later strength sports.
20 years ago I decided to combine my passion for training with a need for more knowledge and went to Study for an Undergraduate Degree in Sports Science and Nutrition going on to complete a postgraduate Masters in Sports Performance. Combining this with my passion for coaching and training I was able to compete Internationally as a Powerlifter alongside entering the Professional Sport Coaching world with Harlequins RFC as a 1st Team Assistant Strength & Conditioning (S&C) Coach which began to really further my coaching skills and experience.
Over the next 2 decades I spent time leading successful programmes in Super League (Professional Rugby League), the English Rugby Championship and National League Rugby. Alongside this I spent much time consulting across a multitude of sports such as Bobsleigh, Rowing, Athletics, Skiing and Weightlifting whilst supporting highly competitive Sporting Educational establishments such as Brighton College, Hampton School and Seaford College with developing Long Term Athletic Development programmes to help their young aspiring athletes fulfill their potential.
This has all led me to develop Impetus Fitness to help every athlete have access to elite programming and coaching so that they can achieve their athletic potential and goals!
