NICK HOLLAND

outdoor Squad Nick Holland

“No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.” - Aristotle

I absolutely love being a bootcamp instructor and am passionate about fitness because I genuinely enjoy interacting with people. Win and win again: my “job” revolves around both these things. Working with people who are moving towards fitter, healthier and happier version of themselves is just a bonus.

I stay in shape with a purpose and that’s what keeps me motivated.

Exercise has played a transformative role in my life – it has been crucial in helping me overcome a serious back injury.  As a father of a young family it also gives me a lot more energy to function on a day-to-day level and to interact with my kids. They have a lot of energy, which I need to match. Feeling fit, healthy and strong gives me a lot of confidence that I carry around with myself 24/7. I’d like to pass that on to others!

I’m certified in kettlebells, boxing, powerbags, suspension training, Olympic lifting and more. I like functional fitness routines that mimic real life movements and strength needs.

Training with the Outdoor Squad is loads of fun but we practice what we preach – you’ll be doing the exact same workouts that we do ourselves.  You’ll do things you never thought possible. You’ll be the person you knew you could be and I’m the right person to push and encourage you.

CAT RICKETTS

I’ve always kept a high level of fitness having played representative netball and swimming at University. After working in the corporate world for 10 years I really wanted to train more and train other people to enjoy what I enjoyed so much about feeling fit. After trekking the Himalayas and moving from London to Sydney, I decided to live the life I wanted. At fitness college I completed my Certificate IV in personal training and Australian Combat and Exercise boxing certification. My favourite type of training is strength. I like the variety of functional training that we use to get strong. 

I like to stay focussed and improve on the various ares of my fitness – from aerobic cardio to anaerobic conditioning, functional strength training, and striking technique for a whole body workout. But I don’t mind lollies – occasionally.
