Nick Powers Personal Trainer in Bellevue

Nick Powers

NCSF & NESTA Certified Fitness Coach

Fitness and exercise became a large part of my life in my mid-20’s.  Growing up, I was never the chubby kid; however, I never really understood what it meant to be in shape or to exercise with specific goals in mind.  After several sales jobs and countless hours sitting at a desk, I started packing on fat in my early 20’s.  I did what most people do — I fumbled my way around the big box gyms for two years with no progress or change in body composition.  Fitness and exercise was redefined when I hired Coach Mariko as my first trainer.  As I worked with her, I learned proper exercise progressions and techniques to help achieve my immediate weight loss goal.  During the journey, I uncovered countless other fitness goals which continued to inspire and motivate me to take care of my body in the best possible manner.

Nutritional and lifestyle coaching had a profound impact in my life.  A year into working with my trainer, I developed a passion to help and inspire other people to achieve their fitness goals as well.  That inspirational fire never went away so I was faced with a tough decision.  My desire to help others the way I was impacted was so strong that I made the conscientious decision to change careers.  I took a leap of faith and left a well-paying job I held for six years, to pursue fitness full-time.  In 2011, I was hired by 24Hr Fitness and shortly thereafter, I became a client at Fire Fitness and Conditioning.   The environment at Fire was condusive to ensuring that I continued to better myself as a trainer and keep fitness exciting for my clients.  Helping and working with people has always been a passion of mine.  Fire Fitness and Conditioning provides me an exciting and energetic platform to do so.

I am excited to now be part of the amazing Fire Fitness team!  Throw away every stereotype you can imagine about gyms and exercise.  I am excited to show you why I fell in love with fitness.

Callie Bergan Fire FitnessCallie Bergan

Client Relationship Specialist

Callie grew up in Issaquah, Washington, and has lived in the PNW her whole life. She comes from a tight knit family, and from a young age she and her older sister Britta were instilled the values of teamwork and dedication, and were both involved in many different sports. Callie played volleyball, softball, some basketball, and soccer. She loved working out and getting better every day all throughout her childhood. During her early high school years, she decided to change her focus to softball, and because of the dedication and endless hours, blood, sweat & tears, she ended up receiving a scholarship to play college ball close to home at the University of Washington. Go Dawgs! She quickly learned what it meant to be a part of something bigger than herself. She played in three Women’s College World Series, and the life lessons learned during those short 5 years have definitely become a part of who she is today.

She ended up graduating in 2005 with a degree in Communications, and currently resides in Bellevue. Because of her fitness and athletics background, she is very excited to be a part of the Fire Fitness family. She has a competitive nature and always wants to succeed, and started to feel bored in the gym, going through the same motions but not seeing any results. She and her boyfriend started working out with Fire Fitness in 2012, and won the Thinner Winner competition in October, 2012. They put their winnings toward more training, and are both so grateful for that decision. They have transformed not only their bodies but their entire lives. They were definitely nervous to take that first step, but look back with no regrets as they continue on their journey to optimal health and well-being, knowing they have an amazing team of coaches right by their side helping them get better every day.
