A Young Entrepreneur’s ambition of reducing Obesity amongst Children

I am an aspiring entrepreneur, with an enduring passion to disrupt and innovate the health, fitness, and nutrition sectors. I am an expert in health, fitness, & nutrition, with an ambition of becoming the next successful Australian tech entrepreneur.

Since 2014, I have built a reputation for my efforts and achievements in personal development and training. As a 2017 National Champion, I have structured a lifestyle to remain at 6% body fat year round, with future ambitions to compete on an international stage.

My specialities include:

  • Mobility and stretching training
  • Improving spinal health and hip mobility
  • Accelerated fat loss circuit training
  • Functional movement training
  • Centre of gravity and weight distribution training
  • Nutritional and dietary plans based on specific needs/goals


My clients include individuals who have never exercised through to professional athletes.

I enjoy collaborating and imparting my knowledge with other expert trainers to broaden the impact of my work across the community. I aim to influence others to adopt my methodologies in personal development. 

I am also guided and mentored by other experts in their field:

  • Judo Coach - Frank Dando
  • Zen Do Kai Karate Coach - Ziad Zakharia
  • Boxing Coach - Paul Fyfield
  • Strength and Conditioning Coach - Sebastian Oreb
  • Nutrition and Advanced Training Coach - Ben Cant
  • Business Coach - Oriel Mendoza
  • Entrepreneurship Coach - Federico Re


My legacy is about 'saving children's lives'. In September 2018, I will be launching a new venture that combines my knowledge in health, fitness, and nutrition, with the latest app technology to combat the epidemic of child obesity. I am now seeking the support of schools, trainers, local government, and investors for collaboration opportunities.

When you work 40 hours a week you work full time. When you work 80 hours a week you’re a hard worker. When you work 100 hours a week you’re lucky. I consider myself lucky.

Show Notes

His Story – Nicolas Depierre

Nicolas Depierre didn’t fit in. He feels it was fortunate that way. He dropped out of five schools before finding his fit in a sports academy, training in judo and martial arts. The principles and values he formed for goal setting, habitual routine and discipline formed the foundation for what ultimately became his career.

Nicolas has been working for four and a half years in the training and coaching space, consulting with businesspeople, personal trainers and your every day human beings to help them unleash their potential. He thrives off their energy and is passionate about helping them finding what works for them, just as he did as a teenager.

He subscribes to the theory of ‘walking the talk’, in what he eats, what he drinks and the way he goes about his day. He describes himself as continually learning from the ever-growing body of academia and research around the health and nutrition industry and is set on bridging the gap between what is known and what is taught.

Nicolas is particularly drawn toward solving pertinent issues facing our society today, including obesity and diabetes amongst both adults and children. He believes there is significant potential for growth in the industry and limitless scope for innovation and disruption to help ordinary people live extraordinary lives.

Nutrition Revolution

Nicolas has launched ‘Nutrition Revolution’ to guide and educate the gods of the future. Nutrition Revolution emerged from the desire to reduce obesity within Australia's youth in the form of an App will facilitate and encourage kids, their parents, and their personal trainers at schools to live a healthier life.

He plans to spread this message by helping kids incorporate exercise into their daily routine, using technology to enlighten parents and children about what good health means and reduce the mental effects associated with illnesses induced by eating and exercise habits.

Key Habits – Nicolas Depierre

Nicolas is a creature of habit. He fuels and functions according to his strict regime and routine:

Morning

Competing Against Luck: The Story of Innovation and Customer Choice
By Clayton M. Christensen, Karen Dillon, Taddy Hall, David S. Duncan

Nicolas feels the morning is all about self-awareness, mindfulness and positivity. He doesn’t use his mobile phone for the first hour, practices affirmation and meditation and starts the day with a cold shower.

Evening

Nicolas believes in order to maintain a rigorous schedule and avoid burn out, it is integral to wind down after a big day. For two hours before bed he turns off the TV, uses candles and incense and practices meditation.

Weekly

Throughout the week, Nicolas abides by a strict workout routine that includes weights four times a week, seven days of yoga and swimming once a week.

Advice for Others – Nicolas Depierre

What’s Stopping You?

Nicolas wants us to be honest with ourselves in asking: “what’s holding us back?” He feels we have to be strong and independent to break free from the influences and pressures from our past, and rather to create long-lasting legacy and meaning in what we choose to do.
