My name is Nik Buchman and I have recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin La-Crosse with a degree in Exercise Sports Science. I am currently the Fitness Manager and personal trainer here at MedX of Estes. My passion for fitness includes weightlifting, aerobic training, and a variety of sports including basketball, baseball, football and volleyball. I have trained clients of all ages with all levels of experience. I am a firm believer in overall body wellness, which includes not only physical, but also mental and emotional health. Whether you have years of exercise experience or no experience at all, I would love to help you achieve your goals!

"I welcome the opportunity to share the immensely satisfying experience I've enjoyed working with my trainer, Nik Buchman.  Despite a virtually incalculable age difference, there has never been an instance where we've found an incompatibility, nor have I received anything but complete respect for the effort I was contributing to the session.  He is possessed of tremendous communication skills, and is willing to go to great lengths to ensure my understanding of methodology and the goals of each procedure.  Each session represents a very satisfying experience, and an awareness of the growth and development which is occurring."-Bob Devoy

“I have worked out at Medx for years on a fairly regular schedule.  I felt good, okay, but at 68, I had plateaued.  Body weight and ‘problem fat’ areas were staying the same.  After listening to me moan about this, my husband gifted me 9 sessions with Nik.  Before I began, I had my body mass numbers measured (a service offered by Medx) to obtain a baseline.  In hour long sessions we work arms and core one day, legs and core the next.  I am using free weights (with guidance) and machines I never used before.  The work out is never the same and always a challenge.  I am seeing a difference in all the areas on my body I hated before.  My balance and energy level have improved.  Most importantly, I feel better about myself.  Sessions with Nik have now been added to my weekly workout routine.  Nik is knowledgeable, kind and pushes you.  If you have ‘hit a wall’ or just need to change up what you are doing, I would recommend working with Nik.”- Kris Adams

"The most amazing aspect about Medx is their personal trainer Nik.  This young man has transformed me.  His expertise in the fitness field is only surpassed by his humility and desire to help me achieve fitness.  I have had the privilege of working with him for 7 months.  In that seven months, not only have I shed over 40 pounds, I have become strong mentally and physically.  I have learned to appreciate good health in a way that was unimaginable to me.

Nik continues to challenge me every time we meet.  He is truly excited to help me on my journey.  He put so much time and effort into me.  He celebrates all of my victories and continues to push me to become the best version of myself.

I will never be able to thank him for his patience and kindness and for giving me the opportunity to be healthy.  7 months ago, I would have never imagined snow shoeing with my daughters.  I would have never imagined running with the dogs, yes, I said, running.

I would have never, in my wildest dreams, imagine becoming comfortable with the skin I am in.

Thank you Nik, thank you Medx for teaching me the joys of being healthy.

I will be forever grateful."- Robin Arellano Valles
