Today’s interview is Nick Horton, formally of Portland, Oregon now residing in Asheville, North Carolina and forming half of the dynamic duo that runs Asheville Strength and Conditioning (the conditioning is silent).
FULL CONFESSION: I didn’t know who Nick was. Chip Conrad suggested I contact him for an interview. You guys know how highly I regard Chip, so if he thought Nick was good people that was enough for me. Turns out Nick runs a prolific blog The Iron Samurai and is a successful Internet entrepreneur.
Needless to say, I was highly impressed. So much so that within a few hours of our interview I had signed up for the Mastermind group inside Nick’s Weightlifting Academy, which he runs with his partner in crime, Tamara Cohen (Look for her interview next week!).
To be clear here, we’re talking weightlifting (AKA Olympic Weightlifting) — you know the snatch and the clean and press? You don’t know? That’s a shame, for at one time the United States was producing the top weightlifters in the world, now we’re just okay and that’s probably why most of us don’t know so much about it.
This is a great interview. Nick is a wealth of information. His passion for weightlifting is palpable and his desire to make it more available to the general public is commendable. He runs a highly successful web business and is very generous with his knowledge. You don’t want to miss this one.Allyson Goble » « Tamara Reynolds
