Coach Nicholas was awesome! Amari was super nervous with this being his first one on one coaching experience, but the moment he met coach he was at ease! He shows extreme patience and takes care with showing my son every move step by step! Will definitely have him onboard from here on out! My son was so tired from the workout that he fell asleep on the ride home!! Coach Nicholas is the absolute best!!

After a few sessions, I've seen a big change in my son's performance on the court. My son gets a little frustrated at times, because he's not use to being pushed to the next level by his past coaches. At the end of the day, he thanks me for finding a coach/trainer that pushes him to that level that need to be successful in and off the court. I would highly recommend him to anyone that wants to better there all around game.

Great coach will definitely recommend and continue to train with coach Nicholas Wilson

My son loved his session with Coach Wilson. He said the Coach pushed him during the session and it’s what he needed. We have already signed up for additional sessions. We know he will be able to work with our son and prepare him for those games. Highly recommend training with Coach Wilson!!

Coach Nicholas did an outstanding job engaging Ali in some drills to help improve her game! He really understands the game and how to encourage players to work hard and improve!

Coach Nicholas was exactly what we were looking for for our son. The level of detail that his instruction went into gave our son's initial session that personalized attention that we were seeking. Our son was so into the session and Coach Nicolas' coaching that he didn't want to stop after the hour was over. On the way home, our son said a lot of what he said made sense (quite a compliment coming from a teenager) and that every time he followed coach's instructions about how to place his feet the ball went in. He's actually outside practicing the drills he learned today. Thanks, Coach Nicolas, for great instruction today!

Coach Nicholas did an excellent job challenging our son. After the first session we immediately scheduled several more. We are excited to see the improvements and are grateful for his knowledge and patience. 5 stars!!

He's really good at what he does. He pushes you and actually cares about your development

Coach Nicholas is a great coach he really teaches you the game and tells you all the knowledge he knows to help you improve your game, he pushes you hard and critique's your game so you can be the best player you can be, I recommend him to anyone who is serious about getting better.

My son had his first lesson with Nicholas this evening. We really like his style. He pushed my son hard but was also able to sense when my son needed encouragement. We booked three more lessons on the ride home!

I loved the session I would recommended to anyone wanting to improve skill level and overall Fitness. AAA. I love the no-nonsense approach. Straight forward business gets the job done

Very helpful personal training. Coach told me a lot of details that I didn't notice before, like chop-chop footwork when dribbling, shaking body, seat position, and defense footwork. Also Coach Nick pushed me hard to be better. The details I practied here would play a very important role with basketball game level up and up. By the way, he is very friendly to pick me up and sent me back. I would recommand Coach Nick to you!

I have two high school basketball players working with Coach Nicholas and I think he is excellent. He is teaching them fundamentals they have not learned elsewhere. The practices are demanding and yet nail the fundamentals. Good Coach.

Very helpful! Works hard to help child improve.

Our first session with Coach Nicholas was a success. I feel he gave my son a great workout and taught him new skills and really worked hard seeing where my son needed to improve. We have two more sessions booked and I am excited to see my son improve and to watch his confidence level rise. I would definitely recommend Coach Nicholas ...

My son had his very first session today. I must say that I was very impressed with Coach Nicholas and the things he went over in such a short period of time. My son looked better than he has. I look forward to future sessions.

Coach Nicholas was amazing. He was very positive and harper on the attributes my son possessed. My sons self esteem has been lifted and he wants to play more.

Don't look any further: committed, focused, KNOWLEDGEABLE. Even asked to watch my son play one of his league games so that he can better assess ?! Trained my son HARD for over an hour and I couldn't be happier that we found him. Don't miss out on this one: whatever age , gender- I am confident with this coach's ability to improve
My son's skills and can't wait to work with Coach Nicholas more.

Great coach! Can see an improvement already, and would definitely recommend him!

Highly recommended, big difference in just a small time

Coach Nicholas pushes you hard, won't let you give up but at the same time he's cool about it. The workouts he does are very helpful. I feel as he improved my game after one workout.

Great basketball workouts and really tries to get to know you on a personal level and he really improved my game.
