Name: Nick Sampson
Lives: North London
Background: REPS Level 3, experienced trainer, with his own smaller business.
Nick's Story: Nick started working with Swift as a freelance trainer for 2 years before taking on the franchise, and had a good idea of how we ran the sessions. Nick already had experience running his own business, so the idea of expanding in his own area with Swift seemed like the perfect idea.
Nick's Highbury boot camp has done extremely well with a loyal group of clients. Nick's planning his second boot camp location which will be launching later this year.

"Having an established set up behind you, people with the experience, with the reputation, with the established client base."

Talk through your earnings?
"Very simply the numbers have continued to rise, in winter it slows as you would imagine but on the whole the figures have moved along nicely. Also there is no cap on this, you don't get cut off once you hit a certain number, so there is big motivation there."
What’s the future got in store for you?
