The Imperial Walker: Computer Geek to Fitness Freak

The Imperial Walker: Computer Geek to Fitness Freak

We are pleased to help out Nick from Better You Fitness today with a new pair of new Mizuno shoes as he attacks the Oxfam 100 tomorrow morning. He has a pretty inspiring story.

The Imperial Walkers

We first met Nick back in 2012 as he and a bunch of mates decided to sign up for the Oxfam 100 to raise money for a very worthy cause. It’s fair to say that the closest to an endurance event that these young guys had got was a 48 hour binge when the online game called The Legend of Zelda got released...

These four guys, with the fitting team name ‘The Imperial Walkers’, completed 100km of rough terrain and mountains in 36 hours. That is a really long time on the course and takes a lot of determination and resilience to finish what they started and not to give up.

Nick's Fitness Journey

This event sparked something for Nick and we have watched him sign up with personal training and embark on his own journey of fitness training.

We were so proud of Nick when he signed up and completed his training as an accredited personal trainer, followed by training as a remedial massage therapist. Nick is now making a career out of helping people with their health and fitness goals.

It seems obvious that Nick was inspired by how fitness changed his everyday life and wanted to help other people on their own fitness journey.

Well done Nick, and good luck tomorrow. I’m sure The Imperial Walkers will smash 36 hours!
