Nick Andreoli; Certified Personal Trainer
Nick has been in the fitness industry since 2011. He began his journey into fitness in high school in hopes of bulking up to make the hockey team. He quickly realized upon starting that he was able to get much stronger very quickly and that he was way more dedicated than his friends he had joined with. This became a passion of his very quickly since he realized it was something he was good at. He began coming on his own since his friends weren’t very reliable work out partners.
He graduated Southern Connecticut State University with a BA in History. Shortly after he began work at the Cheshire YMCA’s fitness center as a Fitness Instructor. About a year later he became certified by ACE as a Personal Trainer. Upon graduation he also began working with special needs students at Hamden High School where he has now returned to working.
In 2013 he moved out to Chicago with his girlfriend who was pursuing her studies as a medical student. They spent a year in the city where he worked at Xsport Fitness as a trainer.

He picked up right where he had left off and began work back at the Cheshire YMCA and for Hamden Public Schools. This time it was a unique program at Southern Connecticut State University. He was working in a Transition program for special needs students who had finished high school but had transitioned to a college setting. There they learned to become more independent and were provided assistance in a vocational setting both on and off campus. His girlfriend got into medical school in the Maine the following year.
