DANIEL LUCAS Co-Founder, Nimble Fitness
Daniel Lucas, co-founder of Nimble Fitness, believes life’s challenges are an opportunity for personal growth. Experiencing the death of his father at an early age, due to preventable causes and an unhealthy lifestyle, 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. Through his holistic personal training and coaching sessions, clients learn to look at the various aspects of health–physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social–as an essential part of their whole life experience.
Daniel has developed his own unique approach to structural integration, strength training and holistic lifestyle coaching. Holding a B.A. in Physical Education, he is a constant learner with numerous accreditations from highly respected institutions including The National Strength and Conditioning Association (CSCS), The American College of Sports Medicine, The National Academy of Sports Medicine and the CHEK Institute, where he achieved his titles as a C.H.E.K. Holistic Lifestyle Coach and a certified Metabolic Nutrition Advisor. Daniel is also a student of functional medicine training with Functional Health Solutions under Dr. Perry Nickelston and Stewart Gillespie to better understand the root causes of inflammation and how to better assist clients with their overall health.
Other certifications and educations include: 200hrs of Structural Integration and Advanced Anatomy with author Thomas Myers (Anatomy Trains), Precision Nutrition coach, MELT instructor; Barefoot Training Specialist, Rehab Trainer, MET with Dr. Leon Chiatow, Level 3 Touch for Health practitioner.
Acting as both CEO and CCO for Nimble Fitness, Daniel has spearheaded the launch of the Nimble Institute in early 2018. The Nimble Institute hosts original, professional training courses for Personal Trainers and welcomes guest presenters from around the world.
As an industry veteran, Daniel is a highly sought-after business consultant, educator, and keynote speaker on topics related to health and personal growth and coaches other health and fitness entrepreneurs to grow their business.
Today, Daniel trains clients locally at the two Nimble Fitness studios in Manhattan and coaches clients globally through the Nimble Pro-Coaching platform.
“Strength of body and mind allows us to adapt to life’s experiences with awareness and balance.”
