“Real change to one’s health and fitness is ALWAYS possible. Real change requires desire, know how, and a methodical approach. After all requirements are met, one must still have the fortitude to be persistent in their pursuit, as real change takes time.”
Personally I am passionate about riding bicycles—for both recreation and racing. I also love weightlifting, as well as exploring the neurology of movement—for cross training and injury prevention. Professionally my passion comes from helping people achieve ANY goal they feel is important to them, whether it’s getting a person out of pain or lowering their marathon time. My training style is balanced, considering the client’s likes as well as what I think is best for them. My philosophy is rooted in science, and the principles of neurology taught through Z Health. Z Health has taught me how to target and utilize the various parts of the nervous system to help people get out of both chronic and acute pain, as well as breakdown old performance barriers. Once you understand the nervous system, and the difference between good and bad movement, you can literally help anyone with anything.

“This summer I had a goal to qualify for the Boston Marathon. I developed an 8-week training plan that included running six days a week, cycling for recovery & core work. The core part I was unsure how to approach so I decided to hire a personal trainer. I chose Nathan Miller for his experience with Z Health & his cycling background. Five minutes into our first meeting I was impressed with Nathan’s logical approach to training, his workouts make sense, not a bunch of off the shelf excises that leave you whipped & sore. He focused on any aches or pains (that could become an injury) first thing at every workout, then moves on to strength work in gradual increments so as not to antagonize these issues. Over the six weeks all aches & pains disappeared, my core developed & I ran pain free. I cannot emphasize how much Nathan contributed to my overall well being & reaching my goals. I would recommend him for any athlete, weekend warrior or coach potato looking for a safe workout that is fun & effective. Nathan is always full of enthusiasm & interested in helping you achieve your fitness goals.”
