My philosophy is a very hands on approach with the athlete, which I have found to greatly accelerate their abilities.

Most coaches have their own style that worked for them 'back in the day'. Unfortunately they impose that style on the wrestler, regardless if it's right for their body type or wrestling style. Each wrestler is unique and there is no one-size-fits-all approach.

Some wrestlers identify more with Cael Sanderson's style, some with John Smith, some with more of an Iowa style. Some do better with a Russian or Iranian style. We figure out together exactly what will work best in order to reach their goals and become the best wrestler they can be. My greatest strength is intuitively working with each wrestler, in order that their innate talents and abilities can be leveraged to create their ideal style.

Nick really knows how to individualize the training for each wrestler. He is a positive teacher and has vast experience and knowledge of the sport. My nephew really liked working with him and he said it helped a lot! which he has hardly said of any other camps clinics or coaches. Thanks!

Nick is absolutely amazing! He has coached my two girls ,ages 9 and 10. Even after the first session, they acquired so many skills and techniques.... Nicks knowledge base is astounding and he is able to convey this effectively. His style of teaching is perfect.... workout is super tough, no nonsense but fun. If you are looking to advance your skills in wrestling and simply be the best wrestler you can be, then Nick is certainly someone you would want in your corner! So impressed!

I had an amazing session with Coach Nick. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable about wrestling, but he also was very attentive and flexible to my needs. I highly recommend to anyone looking to take their skills on the mat to the next level.

I've had some really good coaches over the years, but Coach Tourville is one of the best. I've worked with him for over a year now as part of a team, but now we're doing one on one offseason workouts. He's helping me get up from bottom, expand my options on top, and find a good strength routine that works for me. Last offseason I did the quickness workout he gave me, and it helped me get much faster, particularly improving my neutral defense. His passion for wrestling is so contagious, and he's so knowledgeable, that I really look forward to every session. It's fun and productive. 5 stars. Absolutely recommend.

I'm BJJ competitor and started working with Coach Nick to improve my standup. From the initial communication on CU all the way to private class Nick has been extremely professional. Fast to respond, on time, engaging attitude.
Prior to our session Nick requested I send him footage of my matches for review. For the class Nick came with notes and ideas on how to integrate wrestling into BJJ. The class was hands on and geared specifically to complement my my style based on what Nick saw in the videos. More so, before the class Nick asked about my training schedule (the private happened to be first session out of three planned for the day) to make sure the intensity of class wouldn't compromise planned training.
Without a doubt Coach Nick is the guy you want to have in your corner. I'd highly recommend his services.

I worked with Coach Tourville for over two years as my peak performance coach and private sports trainer. I can’t express the impact he has made on my life, and the transformation I’ve had as an individual. He pushes people to reach for bigger goals than they ever thought possible. When I started with Coach Tourville I was a lost person looking for an identity and something to be proud of for the first time in my life. I was overly anxious, didn’t feel tough or ‘hard’, and I was desperate to become confident in who I was as a man. Over the last few years, I have completely transformed into becoming a whole new and improved version of myself who is constantly striving to get 1 percent better as not only an athlete but as an individual every day. By no means has this journey been easy for me. When I made the decision I was going to become the man I wanted to be, I was dealing with a lot of doubt about my ability to stick with it as someone who had previously quit everything hard I had ever done and never been exceptionally good at anything. But through Nick’s guidance and positive attitude with me, I have been able to stay on the right path. He has helped lay the groundwork for the roadmap of how to live a successful life of achieving goals I have set for myself. Working with Nick is truly the greatest investment I have ever made and has made me realize how important it is to invest in yourself and in your personal development—and not in material objects. The latter will leave you feeling happy for a short while but the affects of working with Nick stick with you indefinitely.
Nick coached my nephew Kevin for 10 lessons about 1-2 times a week before the season started. The results have been transformative. Kevin has received hundreds of hours of wrestling teaching and coaching over the years yet bad habits and repeated mistakes remained. This all changed with private lesson from Nick. Nick has an uncanny ability to explain technique in a way that resonates with the wrestler. Kevin learned new moves and strong techniques from Nick but for the first time Kevin was able to retain the teachings after the lesson and apply them in a live setting. Nick explains technique and concepts in a simple way so that the wrestler no longer has to think about what he needs to do. Nick is an accomplished wrestler level on the highest level. He not only has incredible technical competence and competition experience as a champion wrestler, but equally important Nick is a great teacher who truly connects with the athlete. Nick teaches and coaches using live situations which I have noticed is incredibly effective. This is much different than repetition. It is teaching and drilling in a particular way so that what is being taught will imprint onto the wrestler. This way the wrestler can implement the teachings in a live match. As a former wrestling coach, I watched the changes in Kevin after each lesson. Nick was able to move Kevin past his sticking points and greatly improve his overall performance in ways other coaches could not. Nick got him there. Thank you, Nick! Kevin thanks you as well!
I worked with Coach Tourville January 2015-March 2015. Before working individually with Coach Tourville my record was just over 50% wins. Over the course of two months I wrestled with him 5 days out of the week. I went from being unranked to winning 90% of my matches the rest of the year and going all the way to the state finals where I placed 2nd in Minnesota! I wrestled at a high intensity before high school, but upon entering I lost my intensity and spirit. Senior Year came along and I did not want to waste a skill I worked so hard to attain. Wrestling with Nick Tourville not only sparked that intensity within, but he also matched it which pushed me to work harder. Coach Tourville believed in me even when I didn't. Even when it seemed every move I made on and off the mat was the wrong one he was still there, when I asked him to come in on Saturdays he was there. Nick will always be ready to share his infectious love of wrestling. Once that rubs off on you (wrestler) practice, cutting weight, watching film, going to bed early, missing parties ect... becomes easier because that love is driving you not scholarships,parents, or pride. Just a pure joy for a wrestling Nick is an awesome coach who is always willing to go the extra mile. Watching film with him helped me immensely because he was able to analyze tape and clearly articulate my mistakes through his words and moves on the mat. If you want to compete at a high level or just get better you need to have elite coaching. Nick Tourville has everything you want in a coach for any wrestler at any level the love for the sport, the knowledge from all three styles, and a fun intensity that he brings to every practice
