Nicholas has been involved in sports since he was very young. Always very good with his hands, Nick could throw a 90+ MPH fastball by the age of 15, and was heavily scouted by MLB. After baseball, Nick spent a few years snowboarding in Tahoe before he became a certified personal trainer, working with clients at a local globo gym. His brother, former Diablo partner Jeremy Jones, finally convinced Nick to check it out. After he barely survived the “newbie” workout, he fell back in love with fitness for the first time in years. Nick abandoned the globo gym training techniques, embraced CrossFit and has never looked back.
