Nick Baker is from a small town in Oklahoma and began his journey when he was 15 years old. Nick was a very shy, overweight and unhealthy teen and was looking for a change.  He was inspired to workout after watching a TV personal trainer & motivator. It was like the trainer was talking to Nick and Nick was ready for change. He took responsibility for his health and also discovered his faith in God that summer. It changed the direction of his life in a big way. Nick is now a Training for Life Health and wellness trainer.
