Are you bored of your standard gym, not really getting the results you should be, bored of working out on your own, fed up of figuring out your own workouts?!

want more than just a workout?

Yes, yes and yes to all the above!!





Hi! My name is Nick and I'm the Head Coach here at CrossFit Minnetonka.

I was a high school and college athlete - played lots of sports and never really had to worry about what I ate.

I started my first job in my early 20's and was sitting at a desk pretty much all day. I slowly started seeing the weight creep on. I knew if I didn't tackle the problem now it would only get harder later on. 

I found my love of sport again in CrossFit. I'm currently the 14th "Fittest man on Earth" after the 2022 CrossFit Games.

I get so much gratification from helping people achieve things they never thought possible and I'd love the opportunity to help you!

any of the below sound familiar?

Forty. Focused. Fit.__CrossFit Minnetonk

"I'm a tri-athlete and some would say competitive - I wanted to get stronger and needed an outlet - something that would constantly challenge me"

- Molly

"I wanted to make sure I stay fit and healthy for many years to come! CrossFit is my insurance policy against chronic disease!"

- Curt

"I love competing and used to be really active in high school - I wanted to feel that way again!"

- Greg


"I just want to be a great dad and be able to chase my kids around, throw them up in the air and be able to get up without moaning that something hurts!"

- Chen

Our process begins with a completely free, NO sales pitch "No Sweat Intro". It's a chance to introduce ourselves and you get to ask as many questions as you'd like. 

you've worked out all your life but are you where you want to be?

The number one reason results aren't achieved is nutrition. Over 80% of how we look is down to diet. We can work out for hours a day but if your nutrition isn't good - you may not see results. We've tried every diet, fad and gimmicks. Common mistakes people make are too little calories or not the correct foods in your diet. At CrossFit Minnetonka we focus on nutrient dense foods and teach how to eat a balanced and unrestricted diet so you can do this for the rest of your healthy life.



A good coach can be the difference between success and failure.  Whether you're wanting to compete or just kick-ass, our coaches will make sure you have the skills to dominate! We partner you with a Client Success Manager (CSM) that's suited to you and your goals who you have direct access to and will work with 1-1. You will be speaking with your (CSM) monthly.

On top of your direct coach communication, you will also have access to a supportive Facebook group and community.

are you bored of your same old routine?

Knowing what to do in the gym,

planning every day out,

setting yourself goals,

not getting bored.

Sound familiar?

It's one of the biggest reasons that people fail. Whether it's a standard gym, spinning, rowing, yoga - there's a point where it gets all the same. 

try something new!

Or just wanna get super strong?

Yes. Yes. AND, YES to all the above!

I've tried my fair share of personal trainers, gyms and ready made programs.

I've spent years trying to come up with my own workouts, trying different diets, starting and stopping every now and then. It was always just something I had to do instead of something I wanted to do.

My last straw was an LA Fitness membership that last 6 months which I used about twice.

I've hard about CrossFit for a while as I have a physician friend who always talks about how great it is. So I decided to do the 3 month intro package and never looked back. I go consistently 5 times per week without even thinking - I go because I love it! I have friends that I see every day and an amazing coach!

let's get some results. now.

We've been there. Between all the coaches at CrossFit Minnetonka we've tried every diet, exercise program and fad out there. And we're here because non of that worked! We got fat, felt bad about ourselves and started something new...


We work with our clients on building habits for the goals you want to achieve - whether that's losing weight post-partum, got a special event coming up, wanting to be healthier for your family or just to look good on the beach.  We've helped hundreds of men and women just like you get into the best shape of their lives.

The "No Sweat Intro" call is a straight forward NO sales pitch conversation about what's held you back in the past and how we can get the best results in the fastest time.

If you want to work with us after that - great!

I can guarantee that this will be your defining moment of your fitness success for life.

Having a _Music through the decades_ fit

be part of something bigger that pushes you to be the best version of yourself!

_The Fam___CrossFit Minnetonka Open 19.2

I love being coached. I'e had a lot of coaches in the past, but the guys at CrossFit Minnetonka are some of the best. They've been able to push me in so many different aspects of my fitness to a point where I'm fitter now I'm 45 than when I was 25.

Outside of the fitness itself is the most incredible community. Whether it's support to finish a workout or helping carry my shed up my driveway - there's always someone who is there for you.

Love you guys and thank you so much!!

 ------------- Michelle -------------

If you've got to this point, it means you're really committed (and just like us) so great job!

The next stage of the process is to go straight ahead and book a "No Sweat Intro" (NSI). The NSI lasts 30 minutes and is a chance for you and our head coach to meet, introduce and start building up some goals. We'll go over a health assessment, previous history and how our program can help you achieve your goals.

You're obviously someone who is looking for results so already I can tell you're likely going to be a good fit. 

You're just one click away from starting to achieve those goals!

I'm pumped!

How can I start?


is my NSI with

nick free?

Financially, yes it's totally free.

We do want people that are serious about achieving their goals tho, so we want you to be prepared to answer some tough questions so we can get to the bottom of your motives.

Our coaches can do everything in their power to help you achieve your goals, but you need to want it. We can be there when you want to slip up - and we'll tell you it's ok to cheat. But we'll make sure you get right back on board.

We'll talk about your nutrition and workouts and even if you don't decide to work with us, I hope you come away with learning something to implement.

Our goal at CrossFit Minnetonka truly is to help as many people as we can life a happier, healthier, fuller life.

Are you ready for fun, challenging workouts around like-minded people?


common questions..

Q: How long will it take me to lose 20lbs?

A: You should be able to lose 1lb safely and consistently per week depending on your build. This allows us to work with you on building god habits vs extreme dieting.

Q: Is CrossFit for me?

A: If you need trusted and accountable coaches to cut through all the confusion and get you results fast, while teaching you skills so that you keep hold of your hard work for life – CrossFit could be for you.

Q: Do I need to be fit before I join?

A: No! We work with people of all ages and capabilities. As long as you;re motivated we can help!

Q: Will I injure myself?

A: When you first start your program you will go through an on-boarding process which will define if it is safe for you to go straight into classes. We have options for further training if we don't feel it's safe.

your (not so) future self will thank you for this!

If you're serious about taking control of your body and goals, you wont be able to say no.

I can't click the below button for you. Just think what it's worth.....that feeling of pride - relief you finally cracked it - and you have a body to show for it...FINALLY!

I'm really excited for you. You got to this point and are ready to make a change. I'd love to help you.


here's what our community has to say...


save your life.

The Mayo Clinic says: "As you add more functional exercises to your workout, you should see improvements in your ability to perform your everyday activities and in your quality of life. That's quite a return on your exercise investment."


The goal of Functional Fitness is to  make it easier and safer to perform everyday activities, such as carrying groceries or playing a game of basketball with your kids.



Let's talk! No more guessing and waiting, or hoping you can achieve it on your own. Let me teach you the skills and habits to own for a lifetime.

we can't wait to meet you!
