My name is Nick Taufer. I am a fitness enthusiast, massage therapist, personal trainer, entrepreneur, podcaster, and most importantly a husband and father. My wife and daughter are the light of my life. In order to properly take care of my family, however, I must first take care of myself. If I am unhealthy, anxious, angry, always exhausted, or rarely motivated, then I have already failed the ones I love. I believe that the most defining hour of each day is the hour that I spend in the gym. It is a singular ingredient that has the ability to balance my mental, emotional, and spiritual self. This can be in the form of running, lifting, yoga, gymnastics, team sports, or a variety of other activities. As I dedicate this hour to improving my own physical health, my relationships will grow deeper, my attitude will improve, my laugh will become natural, and I will feel energized and rested.
Through this website and the accompanying podcast, I will use research to dive into the scientific reasons why our body and mind improve with exercise. I will also talk with normal every day people to hear their own personal experiences of how exercise has enhanced their life. I am here to help you either implement or improve the most defining hour of your life and become the best version of yourself.
