DANIEL LUCAS Co-Founder, Nimble Fitness
Daniel Lucas, co-founder of Nimble Fitness and a highly respected health practitioner and teacher, 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 live their best. He believes that to fulfill one’s life purpose, health and well-being are the foundation. Daniel lives this principle and shares it with each one of his clients. They learn to look at health as an essential part of their whole life experience, encompassing many different aspects–physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social.
Over the last decade, Daniel has transformed himself into one of New York City’s premier health practitioners. Along with a B.A. in Physical Education, he holds certifications from three of the most respected fitness organizations in the country- The American College of Sports Medicine, The National Strength and Conditioning Association (CSCS), and The National Academy of Sports Medicine. In his pursuit of a more holistic approach to training, Daniel became a C.H.E.K. Holistic Lifestyle Coach as well as a certified Metabolic Nutrition Advisor. He would go on to become a Level 3 Touch For Health practitioner, studying with the International Kinesiology College and learning a system of muscle testing used to improve postural balance and neural connectivity, and reduce discomfort within the body. Most recently, Daniel completed an extensive 200-hour course in structural integration and advanced anatomy with recognized educator and author Thomas Myers.
Today, Daniel trains and coaches clients at the Nimble studio in Manhattan, creates unique wellness programs for companies and develops continuing education programs for other personal trainers. Daniel is also writing his first book, while also developing his skills as a presenter and keynote speaker on topics related to health and personal growth.
“Strength of mind and body allow us to adapt to life’s experiences with awareness and balance.”
