"MA-UKA" is a Hawaiian word meaning "towards the mountain"
Christine and myself (Nick) met in Hawaii over 8 years ago. There we found a mutual passion for health, fitness, and good nutrition. We ended up moving to Colorado a couple years later, where we both went on to be very competitive rock climbers.
We have climbed around the world in places like Red Rocks, Red River Gorge, Joe's Valley, Fontainebleau, Oahu, and across the Ozarks.
While we were climbing we started becoming interested in coaching others and sharing all we had learned over the years. We continued to study and expand our knowledge — not just in climbing, but in general and functional fitness and nutrition.
We began teaching others how to fuel their bodies for workouts, have more energy throughout the day and feel better in their 50's than they did in their 20's.
We now live in the Ozarks where we train climbers (and anyone else!) interested in reaching their fitness goals.
