“The best personal training I’ve received for the best price. My size and strength have increased a lot since I started training with them. The staff of trainers are very professional, motivational, and friendly, and make sure your training goals are met, whatever they may be. Definitely recommend!” -Daniel Videau
Daniel Lucas, co-founder of Nimble Fitness and a highly respected health practitioner, presenter and educator, believes life’s challenges are an opportunity for personal growth. One of his own greatest challenges was experiencing the death of his father at an early age, due to preventable causes and an unhealthy lifestyle. This event would set in motion Daniel’s life mission–to inspire others to get healthy and live their best. He believes that to fulfill one’s life purpose, fitness and well-being are the foundation. Daniel lives this principle and shares it with each one of Nimble’s clients. They learn to look at the various aspects of health–physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social–as an essential part of their whole life experience.
Personal Training, Nutritional Coaching, Group Fitness Classes
“I have been a client of Nimble for many years. I am 63 years old and am in better shape than many young people I know. The difference between Nimble and other training centers I’ve gone to is that they don’t just work you, they work with you. On days I am not feeling well, instead of working my butt off and making me feel worse, my trainer Dan, can read me like a book and knows exactly the level to work me to keep me going and actually give me energy from our session instead of exhausting me. They take a whole body approach, encouraging proper nutrition, rest and stress reduction. His end of session shoulder massage hits the exact points that really need to be released. At this point I couldn’t live without them.” -Karen Ranucci
Naturally Intense Personal Training
Kevin Richardson is the creator of Naturally Intense High Intensity Training and the founder of Manhattan’s Naturally Intense Personal Training Services. Currently the international fitness and nutrition consultant for UNICEF, Kevin is also a highly prized guest speaker at corporate events, working with major international corporations to help improve the health of their employees with his time saving workouts. In a career that has spanned over quarter of a century, he has helped hundreds of clients from celebrities to CEO’s to regular New Yorkers achieve their fitness and weight-loss goals with his program of short-duration, high-intensity workouts.
A native of Trinidad and Tobago, Kevin grew up in a fitness-oriented family. He was a painfully thin child who preferred reading books – especially comic books – to playing sports, and often found himself the target of schoolyard bullies. The best way to stand up to them, he decided, was to be like the comic-book heroes he idolized, so he began martial arts training at the age of nine. As he became proficient in karate and ninjutsu, he was, indeed, better able to take care of himself. Unfortunately, while he could fight, he didn’t look like he could; he remained a scrawny kid who had to prove himself over and over. Eventually, he decided it wasn’t enough that he could fight like his comic-book heroes – he needed to look like them, too.

“I was a client of Kevin (Naturally Intense Founder) for 2+ years before moving away. Though I had been lifting weights for 10+ years prior, I became the fittest I had ever been training with him. Still, years after leaving NYC, I emulate the workouts he put me through. Not only are his workouts and approaches unique, but Kevin’s an all-around great guy. Thanks again Kevin!” -Denise McCort

“Maik is very intuitive – he identified immediately where my deficiencies were and put together a plan tailored to me. Importantly, I feel like he’s invested in me and has a roadmap in mind, and isn’t making anything up as we go along (as I’ve felt with other trainers). I was impressed right from the start. He’s very responsive, knowledgeable, focused, and easy to be around. I’ve used several trainers now in NYC and he’s one of the best.” -Sean Mooney
