Nick is the head coach owner and operator of Decima CrossFit. Proud Father and husband.
I started my athletic career playing basketball, baseball, and soccer throughout high school, then continuing the gym rat mentality though college. After realizing that standing in front of a mirror and doing bicep curls just wasn’t working for me, I found CrossFit in 2013, and was immediately hooked. I knew that this was the only way to get truly fit. I earned my CrossFit Level 1 and Level 2, and am actively working towards the Certified Level 3 CrossFit Trainer. I found that helping people to become better movers, more in shape and healthier was extremely satisfying. This is why I opened Decima CrossFit, to help others and create an atmosphere that is welcoming yet challenging. Being both a CrossFit coach and an athlete give me a unique insight to what it takes to be healthy and competitive in the fitness regimen of CrossFit and the sport.

Alex started his CrossFit journey in November of 2017 and hasn't looked back at his “old” ways of fitness since! Alex is a certified nutritionist and CrossFit Level-1 trainer and is looking to complete his CrossFit Level-2 in the near future.
Alex believes that the “little” things in lifting techniques make huge differences, not only in the gym, however, in life! Alex is also pursuing his master’s degree in Nutrition and Human Performance with an emphasis in sports nutrition.
Outside of the gym, Alex educates health and fitness professionals and the general public about diabetes, diabetes management and exercise. He and his wife, Gretta, love hiking the outdoors and travelling to new and exciting places!
CrossFit Level I
My name is Cathy and I absolutely love CrossFit!
I've been hooked since 2013 when I was looking for a really hard workout and to make new friends in Boston, MA. I've never looked back since, and it was only a matter of time before I decided to pursue coaching and obtain my CrossFit Level 1 Certificate.
When I'm not getting my fitness on at Decima, you can find me playing outside: backpacking, hiking, mountain biking, snowboarding, and taking rides with my wife on our motorcycle.
CrossFit Level I
I started coaching December of 2017 and initially was nervous and hesitant to coach because I didn't think I would be good at it. After coaching for a year now, I am happy to be a coach and glad I took the opportunity. My favorite part of coaching is watching members become stronger by pushing themselves more than they thought possible. I love helping them change their form on a movement and seeing the "lightbulb" when the movement feels and looks better.
I have been doing CrossFit for 6 years and competing seriously for 2-3 years. It has shown me what it means to work hard for something, to train my mind, and to make my physical body the absolute best it can be as well as many other lessons.
Outside of the gym, I enjoy all things related to food and nutrition, hosting a Bible study group at our house, and spending time in the mountains snowboarding and camping.
In 2012 I co-operated a facility out of my garage where I would train and train others in Olympic and Powerlifting as well as the art of JuJitsu. I was introduced to CrossFit in 2016 where I’ve strayed away from solely isolated movements and focused on High Intensity, Constantly Varied and Functional movements. I have a CrossFit Level I certificate and have been coaching CrossFit for the past four years.
My passion for CrossFit is for others to build on their overall strength, push themselves beyond the limit they think they cannot reach and to live a healthier life that’s contagious to the next generation! I love Jesus, I’m not perfect, I take everything as an opportunity to learn, I’m passionate about fathering the fatherless, and my favorite movements consist of the Deadlift, Hand Stand Push-ups, and the Clean and Jerk.
Phil Ficsor is a Level 1/Level 2-certified i99 gymnastics coach. His training as a classical violinist helps him understand both the long-term commitment it takes to excel at the skill-based movements involved in a sport like Crossfit as well as the quality of movement required to make challenging gymnastic movements appear easy.
He is passionate about passing on this knowledge to athletes through coaching i-99 programming, which breaks down each movement before putting them back together into a fluid movement. Besides being a professional violinist, he loves to backcountry ski/mountain bike and loves inspiring quotes.
Two of his favorites are:"If it looks hard, it's hard. If it looks easy, it's easy." ~David Bradley-founder, i99
"Today I will do what others won't, so tomorrow I can do what others can't." ~Jerry Rice
