Walking into a fitness center can be intimidating—especially for an overweight fourteen year old. This happened to Nic DeCaire (owner of Fusion Fitness Center in Newark DE) when he began his journey into the fitness world. He worked at a local gym while going to high school and became fascinated with how the fitness industry worked. He knew he would pursue fitness as his calling when he was older and began to lose weight, eat properly and learn all he could from his mentors. He started competing in powerlifting and bodybuilding and eventually became a certified personal trainer at age 18.
