About Me

When I was growing up, I lived in a little town called Seneca, South Carolina. I graduated from Seneca High School in 1991. I was a volunteer coach for track from 1991-1995 at my formal high school. I loved coaching the kids from year to year watching how they evolved into young men. As the years passed, I became more and more out-of-shape. I took a long look in the mirror and didn't recognize the person I had become. I started reminicing of my younger days and how "fit" and "in shape" I was. I topped the scales at 220. It was at that moment I knew I needed to make a change. So in 2010, I began to workout daily. In the beginning of 2011, a co-worker and a good friend approached me about becoming a personal trainer. After giving it some thought, I decided it was a great idea. I became a personal trainer and received my certification in 2011.

Client Success Story

"When I first started working out at RW Functional Fitness, LLC I had a hard time working out. I wasn't motivated at all and had the hardest time. He took the time to work with me at my pace making sure I was doing all the exercises with the right form and technique. It's amazing how much of a difference it made in my results. In a few months at RW Functional Fitness, LLC I have had more improvement then trying to do it myself in a year's time."

Client Feedback

Working out with Nelvin has been great! He continues to motivate me to push myself beyond my limits. The workouts are catered to me specifically (that is really important to me). I'm treated as a person not a number in the gym. I couldn't lift a hundred pounds or run for 20 miles, but he gave me workouts I could do. He has helped me reach several individual goals. I felt intimidated in larger gyms because everyone was looking and judging me. Nelvin praised my accomplishments without any sarcasm. He is genuine and really nice. I will continue referring my friends to him.
