Established in 2005, we are a young yet experienced company that has grown significantly in its first few years of business.
I’ve worked with a few personal trainers over the years and while I have some great things to say about those I’ve used prior to Nick, I must say Nick exceeds their skill and professionalism by leaps and bounds. If you’re looking to chat about the hockey game or your party weekend, Nick is the wrong trainer for you. He packs every second of our sessions with no-nonsense highly-skilled instruction and a hardcore workout. I typically train in pairs and our 60 minutes is used with absolute efficiency. We get a fantastic, challenging fast-paced and motivating workout packed with instruction, guidance, innovation and support. He’s made me not only enjoy the training sessions but has added great value to when I train on my own as my form and efficiency is up 10 fold and the results have been incredible and noticed by not only myself but those around me!
I have been training with Nick, in a small group session, for over a year. Nick is knowledgeable, personable and motivating. He runs an incredibly professional gym. Nick takes into account my strengths and injuries and tailors every workout to my individual needs. I always leave his sessions feeling energized! I look forward to my weekly session with Nick!
I started training with Nick five months ago from the recommendation of my chiropractor for my Stage 1 L5 spondylolisthesis injury. I was so impressed with the knowledge and care that Nick provides in our sessions. Nick plans each of my sessions with a purpose to strengthen everything around the injury. This takes pressure off of the muscles and tissues that are sore and overworked. Nick does not shy away from the fact that I am limited in exercises that I can do. He modifies each exercise so I can do it, and listens to and encourages my feedback. Nick is available, it seems like, all day. He keeps in contact with me to monitor my back after each workout. If I have questions he gets back to me within 24 hours. I have never met someone more professional and passionate about his work and his clients.
Fast forward to now, my back pain has decreased 70%. I have lost 10 pounds, and I have gained so much muscle that I have been receiving compliments left and right. The gym used to be very intimidating for me. I never knew what to do, and exercising was a chore. Now I really look forward to my sessions, Nick makes them fun and challenging. My results have been amazing, and I will continue to train with him to accomplish all of my goals.
I first learned about Nick Cosgrove eight months ago through gym mates, Grant and Simon, who I hadn’t see in a while and who looked….amazing!
“What changed? What are you doing differently?” I asked enthusiastically. Both individuals had started training with Nick.
Here is what I love and appreciate about Nick, and why I won’t go anywhere else:
He is an excellent trainer who respects and empowers every client – regardless of age, gender, or fitness level. I admire his dedication, his intellect, and knowledge in the field of health and education and fitness. He practices what he preaches, and I always learn something new from his classes and his blog posts. Nick is completely “present”, in the moment, focused on each of us, reminding us to breathe properly, adjusting our technique when needed, modifying our exercises (because he remembers what we can/cannot do, for e.g. with past injuries), while encouraging, challenging and pushing us.
Therapeutically, I have benefitted tremendously from Nick’s coaching. The severe pain and stiffness, I once suffered as a result of an accident, have subsided; my strength and my range of motion have improved significantly. I now have more confidence in my weight training abilities. Consequently, my serotonin levels are way, way up!
My gratitude to Nick for helping me to feel and be strong again….and to Grant and Simon who, by the way, still look amazing!
I have been training with Nick for 4 months now. I can honestly say that I have not had better workouts in my 25 years of training. I love the group training sessions. It’s motivating to train with a group of people that all have similar fitness goals as it helps increase the intensity of the workouts!
So grateful for my awesome trainer, Nick Cosgrove at Forever Fit Performance, for his spot-on advice and training program. Nine weeks from fatty to fit…. Thanks Nick! If anyone is looking for general fitness or wants to take it up a notch, you have to see Nick. Personalized programs, and a wealth of knowledge.
I’ve been training with Nick for over 5 years. During this time I’ve lost body fat and have gained a significant amount of lean muscle in my arms, shoulders and back. My legs are now more defined and harder then ever. Since working with Nick I’ve dropped 4 sizes and have had to buy an entire new wardrobe that actually fits!
I would strongly recommend joining one of Nick and Megan’s small group classes as to be honest they work!
I have been working out for a number of years now. Since starting with Nick, I feel like I am working muscles I never used before, and am also weight training properly. The small group workouts have been challenging, and fun. I have learned so much in the last few months, and look forward to continuing to push myself, with the expert help of Nick.
Working at an office has its benefits, but fitness is not generally one of them. As I looked in the mirror at work, I noted my poor posture, and the hunch I was developing in my back. As iconic as the software developer’s hunch is, I knew it was a slippery slope to back problems. Trying to go to the gym on my own had historically produced patchy results, and ultimately gave me something to avoid.
I knew I needed to try a different approach to fitness. After only a few sessions with Meghan I found it difficult to slouch any more, my shirts were fitting better, and my attitude at work was brighter. Her constant motivation, science based knowledge, and well formed work-out plans have helped me achieve more in less time than I could have achieved on my own.
I would highly recommend Meghan to anyone looking to optimize their fitness time, or those who are struggling with their own fitness goals.
I started working with Megan thru a recommendation from a friend. Among other things, Megan has helped me strengthen my back and core which in turn has helped calm my sciatica. She is passionate, considerate and best of all a great source of motivation to lead a healthier lifestyle.
I started working with Nick a few years ago upon recommendation from a few of his long term clients. Nick helped me not only get into the best shape of my life but he also helped make me realize my full athletic potential through his consistent encouragement. Nick is extremely knowledgeable and always willing to go the extra mile for his clients. It’s been an absolute pleasure working with him.
I really enjoy working with Nick. He is dedicated to helping me achieve my goals and is really knowledgable whenever I have a question regarding diet or fitness. I really appreciate the fact that he takes the time to listen to you and create a personalized plan that fits your needs. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a new personal trainer.
I have known Nick for almost a decade and have been working out with him on and off over that span of time. In between I’ve joined Fitness World, Bar Method, community centres and enjoyed outdoor parks, however I still find myself coming back to Nick and Forever Fit! He keeps me accountable, motivated and in line! I’ve never gotten the strong, bangin’ body I had with him at any of the other places I joined and certainly not in such a short amount of time as it seems to take with him. Now if only he could knock the doughnut from my hands every once and awhile 😉
Working out with Megan has been great for me! I wanted to get a personal trainer for some time but was hesitant because I wanted to be focused, dedicated, get along with my trainer and have my trainer understand me. Megan has been able to help me achieve all of the above and more. I have learned so many different workouts with her and she makes them fun! She challenges me and provides me with a wealth of knowledge. Specifically we have bee journaling what I eat everyday and really focusing on mastering one habit at a time until I am comfortable. I’m really looking forward to meeting my goals with Megan and most importantly understanding how to lead a healthier lifestyle!
I can’t imagine working out with anyone else but Nick Cosgrove! He is THE BEST trainer ever. He motivates you and has the patience, knowledge and professionalism to take you exactly where you want to be! I will always be thankful for those early morning workouts and I can’t wait to be back in the game sweating and feeling that horrible but enjoyable muscle pain specifically after leg day!
Nick Cosgrove is by far the best personal trainer I have worked with. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He adapts to each person’s needs in each class and does not push you harder than you should be working. He will gladly help you with diet plans and any extra questions you have outside of your gym time. Nick is very easy to work with and an all around great person.
Nick Cosgrove = Motivating, encouraging, dynamic, knowledgeable, empathetic, driven, committed, professional, considerate, organized. I am so thankful I was introduced to you. Our time spent training together has been invaluable. As discouraged as I know I can get sometimes, you are quick to lift me back up and remind me of my accomplishments. Thank you for being so amazing. In my humble opinion, no other trainer can compare to you!
3 years of serious health issues left me timid to workout seriously again. After frustrating workouts in the conventional gym setting, I spoke with Nick and I felt comfortable & supported in training again. Quickly I have gained strength and reached personal body goals I didn’t think possible. Spending less time at the gym, with smarter guided workouts. Nick has a level of professionalism that is lost in average gym settings and has personal care for each client. Specializing programs & diets that work for each individual. I have never felt so sore and been so happy about as I do after a leg day with Nick. Quick and lasting results .
A thoughtful listener and consummate professional, Megan Williamson guides you to articulate your goals and she fully engages you in your individualized fitness training plan.
Your progress and measurable achievements are her ongoing focus.
I am fortunate to work with Megan – she continually makes my training a positive and entirely rewarding experience.
The reason I started working out with Nick is because I wanted to get results fast! I wanted to have a trainer that will push me hard and give me the right attention on my form. I noticed the transformation taking place in my body after a couple of months of working out with Nick. It’s a great feeling to look at myself in the mirror and notice the progress I have made in my physique. I would highly recommend Nick to anyone who is serious about their health.
I started working out with Nick in November 2014. It had been years since I had lifted any weights. I have to say that I was a little nervous and self conscious about starting my new routine and working out with people who were much more advanced than I was. This became a non-issue as Nick helped me to feel comfortable in the gym and set-up a workout plan at my level. In the 4 months we worked together, I experienced great success in my fitness and strength levels. I would totally recommend Nick for anyone wanting to get back into a gym routine.
I started training with Nick back in 2012, a month before my best friends’ bachelorette party in Vegas. In 30 days Nick brought my body to bikini acceptable shape and I have been training with him ever since. Not only is he a good trainer, he also provides invaluable advice on diet and eating habits. Forever Fit is not just personal training, it is a lifestyle change. If you are ready for big changes, you’ve come to the right place!
I work out with Nick in one of the early morning classes 4 days a week. He is quite knowledgeable and a very respectful trainer. I am impressed by the growth and results that I am getting. He has a nice 45 degree rotation program that makes working out much less boring.
It is obvious that he is reading and keeping himself really updated on training and health. He is also very helpful in terms of diet advice and improving one’s eating habits. I recommend him, and I am looking forward to continue to train with him for a long time.
Great value for your dollar. Money well spent!!
I have been working with Nick weekly at Forever Fit since 2011. I am one of his many long term clients and I could not be happier. He is always pushing me to new limits with a constant variety of cardio and body building exercises. Not like the other trainers I see that just put their client on an exercise bike for part of their workout and chat throughout the rest. Or even worse, make them run around the block while they are on their iphones waiting for their clients to return to the gym. Not so with Forever Fit.
During the time with Nick it has always been a dedicated one on one session. Even during the partner or group sessions you get his full attention. He is always watching to make sure your form is correct and that you are getting the maximum result out of doing the exercise. This is nothing less than I would expect from a personal trainer.
Nobody can believe the age that I am…. and it’s all because of Nick at Forever Fit. I am in the best shape ever. I feel and look great. Thanks Nick… you rock!!!!!
I’ve been working with Megan for 6 months and have seen amazing results in that time. I have never felt stronger or healthier. She is skilled, thoughtful, sensible, and a pleasure to work with and talk to. I recommend her without reservation.
I have been working with Nick Cosgrove for over four years.
Nick has completely changed the shape of my body. When I first started with Nick I lost about twenty pounds, which I have since regained but it is now muscle instead of fat. He is most likely the best trainer that can work with a variety of clients from those that want to do fitness shows to those that just want to look and feel better and all the others in between.
My goal with Nick is to be able to eat and drink everything I want and then leave it to him to make the best of those choices for my best possible health outcome.
A session with Nick is not complete unless it includes some laughing, some chagrining for bad choices and an full intense workout. No slacking allowed with Nick, he will never let a client get away with a lazy workout. He always has positive advice and understands that the real world is different than the inside of a gym. You will never find a better trainer. I am pleased to say that Nick has truly become a BFF.
I love group training with Nick! No matter the time of day, he motivates us to push our limits, yet enjoy the workouts. He brought new exercises to the sessions all the time. Aside from the workouts flying by, Nick made sure each of us was given personal attention. Thanks for teaching me so much! You made our workouts fun yet challenging. Nick is so knowledgeable and he’s happy to answer questions and give advice, even if it’s outside of our training sessions.
Working out with Nick over the past few years has been an incredible experience. He helped me get fit and stay strong with great workouts geared to stay safe throughout my pregnancy and I wouldn’t have been able to drop the post pregnancy weight so easily without him. I feel stronger than ever and have tons of energy, even now that I’m chasing a toddler around!
Prepping for my first show with Nick was such a great experience! From the day I first talked to Nick about a show until walking off the stage with a metal around my neck, Nick couldn’t have been more supportive.
After building a custom workout plan for me Nick made adjustments to the workouts to make them as convenient for me as possible. The diet he designed was so easy to follow and the minute I began to struggle with the ratios he made necessary adjustments. I appreciated Nick’s experience with training as he had suggestions and solutions to all of my issues, as well as having connections with other awesome professionals for the other aspects of my competition prep.
Through all of my ups and downs Nick was there for me with support, advice and best of all patience! From listening to me whine in person, to responding to my crazy emails, from meeting me at the gym to be my workout buddy, to texting me throughout my whole competition day, I couldn’t have asked for more from a coach!
I started training with Nick over ten years ago and he has truly changed my way of life. I cannot imagine a week without training, he has made it a part of my weekly routine and I feel so much more healthier and fit. He is a joy to work with and always upbeat and ready to give you the workout that suits your needs. He is extremely dedicated and honest with his work and desires to continue his knowledge in the field to make sure that he is always informed with the latest techniques in the fitness field. I can’t say enough good things about him, love having Nick as my trainer.
Nick’s love and passion for health and fitness truly translates in his work ethic as well as on the gym floor. With his patience and guidance (and of course a little bit of effort from me), I’ve managed to attain health and fitness goals I never saw possible. I would highly recommend working with Nick to anyone who is serious about getting their body into shape and improving their quality of life.
Nick’s workouts are awesome!
He’s one of the best in the industry and I feel so lucky to have him as my Personal Trainer.
My workout partner and I started working with Nick 6 months ago with a goal to increase lean body mass. Nick placed us on both a nutrition and workout plan to achieve these goals. With Nick’s expertise, support, encouragement, and professionalism we were able to achieve these goals. I cannot speak highly enough about Nick….his knowledge as a trainer is exceptional! This guy know his stuff! Our nutritional plans were detailed, clean and highly effective. The variety and diversity offered in our strength training program were challenging yet offered variety. My success to date with regards to my fitness goals is largely in part to Nick’s efforts and I am excited to push further with his continued guidance.
My training partner and I wanted to take our workouts to another level. As an indoor cycling instructor my cardio conditioning was great, but my workouts in the gym had plateaued, and at time I lacked energy. We approached Nick with the goal of adding lean muscle and increasing strength in the gym. After 6 months of working with Nick I have gained over 10lbs of lean muscle and my energy levels are much higher. Although I have always been active Nick helped me integrate a diet plan that has allowed me to reach my goals. Nick has also given us new ways to approach our workouts that are challenging but also safe and effective. Nick is by far the best trainer I have worked with and I would recommend him to anyone looking to take his or her fitness to the next level.
Before training with Megan, I had a fairly good handle on most power lift exercises, and had a solid commitment to working out 3 – 4 times a week. I was fit, and mostly focused on weight and fat loss. I wanted to cover new ground in my workouts and gain some more
lean muscle mass. I was looking for a trainer with experience that could challenge me and push toward actual progress,
and thats when I met with Megan.
We discussed my goals and came up with a plan. After a general month training program and getting to know my fitness level, Megan then provided tailored workouts towards my goal. We experimented to find my weak points and to work on those areas that were falling
behind, and adjusted exercises accordingly. We spent a lot of time perfecting my form to maximize results, especially towards the last few sets when fatigue begins to set in. She also took measurements to monitor progress as we went along to keep me motivated
and in the know.
Over the past 6 months I spent so far under Megan’s program training and advice, I substantially increased my one rep maximums for power lifts and made modest increases muscle mass overall for my age and lifting experience. Megan’s no pressure, no obligation style,
I feel makes her an approachable and effective personal trainer. She supports your best interests when recommending choices, advising you on nutrition and overall well being. If you are looking for a serious change in your image, health, or sports conditioning,
I wholeheartedly recommend her.
Megan is a fantastic trainer with excellent knowledge and training in kinesiology. With that expert knowledge, Megan was able to guide me into proper training forms as well as all around impact my workouts elevating me closer to my fitness goals. Megan is patient, intelligent, caring and very aware- she takes your concerns and really listens to find ulterior solutions that work best for you. I highly recommend Megan for all types of training, whether it be injury rehabilitation, general fitness or more expert conditioning, and I will continue to send her friends and family as clients.
Nick is an energetic, and passionate fitness professional. He has a diverse knowledge of the fitness industry and through his interactions with clients and peers, it is very evident that Nick is truly dedicated to everyone he works with. His attitude, hard work ethic, and passion for fitness is contagious and inspiring.
I have been working out with Nick for approximately seven years. My daughter Shanna had been training with him, and when my trainer retired from the business, I needed to find a new one. It’s very true when someone says you need to find a trainer you connect with. The right fit is just as important as regular workouts. I had an incredible bond with my first trainer and was very sceptical I’d find a replacement that even came close. After much coaxing from Shanna, I started with Nick and never looked back. He is dedicated to his profession, and therefore, understanding his clients’ needs and challenges are his priority. Along with being over fifty, I have some physical challenges that he takes very seriously. His motto is “for every exercise there is an alternative.” I know that if doing something hurts, he can immediately change that activity to something else, which means unlimited options for me. It sounds corny, but my best days of the week are days that start my workouts with Nick. What he is teaching me I can do anywhere on my own. What I have learned beyond exercises, are lessons for a lifestyle….discipline, healthy nutrition options, and balancing my lifestyle within those boundaries. I have a weight loss goal which I think Nick takes more seriously then I do sometimes. He pushes, prods. cajoles and encourages me to strive for those goals. His example is also a huge motivator. I believe that anyone who wants or needs to improve their health and fitness will have 100% success with Nick.
Nick it was a great pleasure that I comment on your services over the last eight years. One could talk about your punctually, flexibility with my schedule and of course the amazing results that I’ve achieved with you. However, to me those are attributes that I and anyone else should expect from any trainer. What sets you apart is your complete dedication and commitment to my goals. You are focused during my workout without any sense of distraction. You don’t just talk the talk, you walk the walk. I feel very grateful I have you as my trainer. Thank You!
I have been working with Nick on a regular basis for more than seven years and I am very pleased with the progress I have made. I am always impressed with how hard he works at creating the right program for me so that I can reach the goals that I have set for myself. Fitness workouts with Nick are fun, active and rewarding. In my opinion he is an excellent personal trainer.
The day my brother-in-law introduced me to Nick was the day my life changed. I had lost some weight before meeting with Nick but I had hit a plateau. I was only doing cardiovascular exercises for my continued weight loss but the weight wasn’t coming off anymore. Within a couple of months, Nick had me doing different exercises with and without weight, shocking my body whenever he could and in no time I lost 5 pounds, breaking that barrier. I have been with him for only four and a half months and have lost a total of 9 pounds. Not only did I lose the weight but my body has been reshaped and defined. I have never felt and looked this good in all of my 49 years. Nick is professional, knowledgeable and will always challenge you. If you want to see results, he is worth every penny.
Thank you so much for being a partner in my health. You planned my workouts throughout my pregnancy, customizing my program as my body changed each month. I felt safe with your guidance. I also felt strong which really helped during my delivery and subsequent fast recovery! Everyone has commented how wonderful I look and I can say I feel energized too, even with the demands of our new baby boy. Thanks Nick!
I started training with Nick about eight years ago and it has been one of the best experiences of my life, both physically and mentally. I have lost over 35lbs since that time which is a great feeling. Training has given me back some of my self-confidence and has made me happier in many ways. The fact that I feel healthier is an amazing feeling as well. I am grateful for everything I have learned and can use in my own workouts outside of my personal training.
I have been working out with Nick for eight years now. When I first went to see him, I had not been to a gym in years and had gained substantial weight (60lbs) after having two children. I was having ongoing issues with my lower back from being overweight and out of shape. I started going once a week for one-on-one training sessions. I started to notice a difference within a few weeks. I told Nick about my lower back issues and he was very careful to choose exercises that I was able to do without aggravating my back. He worked on strengthening my core muscles to help prevent future flare-ups of back pain as well. He was attentive to any comments I made about feeling uncomfortable with a particular exercise given my weak back and he always had an alternative exercise to work on the same muscle group. Seeing the success I was having losing weight, I increased my workouts to twice a week. His training sessions are always changing, challenging and fun. He comes up with new exercises and routines each session. Knowing he is at the gym waiting for me, is always motivation to get me to my workout. Since working with Nick, I have dropped over 50lbs and have gone from a size 18 to a size 12 and no longer have back issues.
I have been a client of Nick’s for almost two years. With Nick’s advice regarding nutrition, I have lost approximately 75lbs (from a size 24 to size 4-6). I have also gained an exceptional amount of muscle. Nick has made my training sessions fun and enjoyable as well as productive. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants to gain control of their life. He rocks!
I have worked with Nick for several years now and he has helped me improve my fitness, strength and diet immeasurably. Nick is extremely knowledgeable about his field and constantly innovates; training with him evolves and is never stagnant. He is very supportive of his clients, an excellent coach, and skilled at determining how to motivate each individual to achieve their best results
