Coach Nick Hammer
I am a barbell strength training coach, a referee for USA Powerlifting as well as a State Co-Chair for USA Powerlifting in North Carolina. I have been a strength and fitness enthusiast all my life with an affinity for multiple activities, including swimming, basketball, football, bowling, and weightlifting. Powerlifting has been my favorite competitive sport since my first meet in 1995. To date, I have competed in nearly 50 meets in 5 organizations and multiple weight classes. I have earned numerous victories over the years, including state, national, and world titles.

My best raw lifts include a 600-lbs squat, 418-lbs bench press, and a 672-lbs deadlift. For the first ten years of my powerlifting career, I competed in single and multi-ply gear.
In 2017 I earned my USAPL state referee certification and then my USAPL Powerlifting Coach certification. I have since taken on the role of the USAPL North Carolina State Co-Chair. In that role, I have successfully organized and directed multiple meets with an average of 100 competitors per event.
I own a small Anytime Fitness near my home in Holly Springs, NC that I have been training and coaching out of since 2012. Online coaching has been part of my service offering since 2018. My greatest passion is helping others realize the power of becoming the strongest versions of themselves.
