Hello everyone! My name is Nate. I have lived in Springfield, MO for about 13 years. My full time job is working as a Physician Assistant at Swann Dermatology since 2015 and I also have the pleasure of teaching at Physique. I am the extremely proud dad of my daughter, Sydnee. She is the root of all my motivations and aspirations in life and I am honored to be her dad. I am (soon to be) married to my incredible fiancé, Chris. He sort of wandered into my life at the time I needed him the most, and I haven’t let him go since! He jumped head first into my crazy life and I cannot have asked for a better partner in crime. While I was in PA school in 2012, I was looking for a way to work off the stresses of such a rigorous program.  As fate would have it, I was fortunate enough to cross paths with one of the most incredible women I know. Darby and I instantly hit it off and have basically been inseparable since our first conversation. We have definitely helped each other through some tough times over the years. When she decided to open Physique Fitness, there was absolutely no question that I wanted to be a part of it. From the first thought to the final product, I was 100% on board with Darby’s vision and goals for Physique Fitness.  I had no doubt in my mind that she would find success.

I am one of those people who practically always has music playing in the background and I love translating the power of a great playlist into a killer workout. We only get one body and we have to do our best to take care of it. Trying to eat right and exercise are obviously fundamental to being healthy, but I think it is just as important to let loose and have some fun! I try to keep my classes fast paced, energetic, and fun for our awesome clients. Aside from all the amazing instructors and the beautiful studio, my favorite part of Physique is that nobody tries to take themselves too seriously. We are all there to sweat, to dance, to workout, to laugh, to cry, to relieve stress and to let loose and to be our genuine selves without fear of judgement or criticism. Physique Fitness is the place for you, whether you are just starting your fitness journey, or a seasoned pro. Each time you walk through the doors you will be met with respect, dignity, and support at all times. Hope to see you in class!
