Nick Drago

CrossFit Coach and Director of Active Youth Program

Nick Drago

Nick is originally from Miami where he spent most of his childhood playing organized sports, specifically soccer and basketball. He discovered CrossFit while in high school where he started his first job as a CrossFit Kids coach.

Since moving to Gainesville to study at the University of Florida, LIV Athletic has become his home away from home. He graduated in 2016 with a B.S. in Applied Physiology and Kinesiology and is now directing his full focus on the LIV community before pursuing a career in medicine.

Nick attributes his passion for coaching and leading both kids and adults to a healthier lifestyle to his father, a former high school basketball coach in inner-city Miami.
