Bio/ Background

"I'm Phil. I reside in Springfield, Pa. Allow me to be your coach in helping you achieve your healthier lifestyle goals! Whether it is Nutrition Counseling, Personal Training in PA, or life/wellness coaching.

I went from being a MVP in HS sports to a sedentary lifestyle, ultimately becoming obese after entering my college years. I had a wakeup call after doing a physical examination with my doctor that showed my BMI (body mass index) as being really bad for someone my height and weight. Granted BMI isn't the best calculator of health, nor should it be THE only way to determine someone's current fitness level or health level, but it is what he used.

After seeing my BMI was so bad and my doctor encourage me to do something about it, I did. I joined a local gym and used to workout incorrectly. I was over-training, working the same muscle groups day in and day out, doing too much cardio, until one day I decided to hire a personal trainer. He put me on a cardio and weight training program, monitored my nutrition and after a few months, I had gone down to 15% body fat! View Phil Nicolaou Fitness Success Stories

He then asked me, why not pursue personal training as a career or part time option? He felt I'd be great at it. I'm compassionate, caring, motivating, and can make people laugh. The exercise science stuff he felt I could learn.

So I enrolled in my first "certified personal trainer course" back in 2000. I started training some of his clients a year before that though.

Since then, after a decade of personal training experience, countless clients successes later, I can help you! I know what it is to go from being obese and unhealthy to being healthy! It took hard work and consistency, however, allow me to show you what I learned through my own personal "weight loss" experience and what I've learned through my decade of experience. Let me show you the shortcuts that are effective, safe and fun to get you results fast!

I have a Dual Masters Degree in Fitness Training and Medical Fitness Specialization from The Fitness Institute of Technology and currently in pursuit of my Dual PhD.
I have over 33 nationally accredited certifications, from two of the major certifying bodies in the industry, IFPA and NESTA. I also am certified as a Master Personal Trainer through these two organizations in addition to Sports Nutrition and Advanced Nutrition.

So I went above and beyond the regular trainer in terms of education, making it my business to be in the know for the most advanced scientific information for your exercise program. You could say its a passion! So combining my education, experience and my unique ability to motivate, encourage and support you through each session and through your transition, you'll get RESULTS with me.

To top it all off, I take the time to take you to a supermarket to show you what to buy and what to avoid. Its all part of coaching you.

Take a closer look at my credentials listed below. You won't find a more qualified trainer in the Philadelphia area.

Here's what Jim Bell PhD, President of the IFPA and Fitness Institute of Technology had to say about me as a trainer,

"Dr. Bell , President of the IFPA had this to say about me as a fitness professional. ‘You have the knowledge and expertise far above and beyond the average trainer. You have learned your lessons well and we are honored to have you part of the IFPA team! Your solid documented experience and outstanding academic achievements has made us want to have you as a coach at our regional personal trainers workshop to teach up and coming trainers what you've learned so well”
