"Gilly provided the tools and extra motivation I needed to push me into this new territory, I do not ever remember feeling this fit in my life. While Nic might say I did the hard work, it was a real team effort and I can honestly say it is a privilege to have Gilly on my team."
Cameron Smith – The man formally nicknamed SWAMO (Stomach With A Man On)
Dr Gill advised me on new equipment, conditioned me physically, educated me on injury prevention / well-being and instilled belief that I could do what I wanted to do.
If you put your goals in Dr Gill's hands and have the fortitude to do what he advises, I promise you that your aspirations will come true. I know this because... THEY DID!
Kent Mitchell - Triathlete
"I have represented New Zealand in World Rowing regattas at Junior, Under-23 and Elite level. Much of this wouldn’t have happened had it not been for the way Nic approached my situation. His belief in my ability, and the way he took time out of his busy schedule to support me in achieving my goals, gave me huge confidence, and showed what a professional and all round top guy Nic is.”
Alex Bardoul – Up and coming NZ squad rower
“Even when not working with Nic in the gym, he stayed in touch with email and kept a watchful eye on my progress, which was hugely helpful throughout the time we worked together. Nic was very holistic in terms of recommending dietary changes, supplements and always focussed on recovery as much as building workouts."
Craig Hart – Tae Kwon Do
"We’ve continued to use Nic’s expertise over the years and have taken away valuable learnings, which we have been able to use in our current training program. Nic has been a valuable asset to our team and we owe him a lot for our development over the years."
