Meet Dr. Nick Perugini!
CrossFit Athlete & Coach / Physical Therapist
1. How long have you been lifting?
I completed my first Power Clean 11-years ago as an 8th grader. I haven't looked back since!
2. Why do you lift?
I lift because the challenges and obstacles we face as lifters has a direct impact on other areas of our life. These barriers force us to become physically, mentally, and spiritually more resilient versions of ourselves. My experiences in lifting also give me valuable insight as a Physical Therapist, as the majority of patients I work with are competing in Weightlifting, Powerlifting, or CrossFit.
3. How does lifting influence other areas of your life, outside the gym?
To be a successful lifter, you must possess three key traits. Consistency, mental discipline, and the understanding the difference between short and long-term gratification. The transfer of these traits to other areas of my life has allowed me to grow both personally and professionally.
4. What are some of your other hobbies or passions besides lifting?
I enjoy teaching others how to use and take control of their body, exploring Philadelphia, and engaging in conversation with people who love what they do.
