Nichole Gervais, CSCS, RYT200

It is Nichole's personal mission to help her clients build confidence within themselves to see and reach their potential both in their sport/hobby AND in their lives. Coach Nichole was always active in sports growing up, especially Track & Field. Nichole graduated with a B.S. in Exercise Science from Bloomsburg University. Coach Nichole is also a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association. She has 7 years of experience coaching and training both kids and adults. Nichole's focus during speed training is on teaching proper running mechanics and/or multi-directional movements to help her clients become more efficient and reduce injuries. 

In addition to speed and strength training, Nichole also teaches yoga. A few years ago, Nichole began practicing yoga to stretch and restore from her active lifestyle. In her practice, she discovered the many benefits (mind and body) that yoga brings. Now a registered yoga teacher, Nichole is passionate about teaching a variety of yoga classes, including fun, energizing, and strengthening practices as well as grounding, restoring, and meditative ones. She loves helping others learn how to create more balance in their lives.

Richard Vance MS, CSCS, NSCA-CPT
Sports Performance Specialist


Rich specializes in training overhead athletes, especially baseball pitchers.  He has a strong understanding of lower body strength development, and he implements training plans around a philosophy that puts injury prevention first.  Rich strongly supports tracking and managing external workloads for athletes whenever possible.

Rich’s background in strength & conditioning began in college as a baseball athlete at Birmingham-Southern College.  He recognized the benefits of strength training during that time and became interested in workload management after suffering a significant elbow injury that was related to overuse. After college, Rich earned his personal training certification through ISSA, and two years later, attended graduate school at Florida State University for two Master's Degrees in Sport Psychology and Exercise Physiology, respectively.  During his graduate career, he also earned his NSCA-CPT and CSCS certifications.

Rich completed his graduate practicum with FSU Athletics, working as a Strength & Conditioning Intern for Track & Field, and also received supervised experience working with Men’s and Women’s Golf, Men’s and Women’s Cross Country, and Men’s Club Lacrosse.  Additionally, Rich managed GPS workload data for Cross Country and Women’s Soccer. Outside of his graduate studies, Rich worked for FSU as a personal trainer and eventually moved into a Fitness Coordinator role, managing a large student staff and overseeing fitness programming for a 120,000 sq. ft. recreation center, serving 2000+ daily facility users.

Rich joined LVHN in January 2019 and has provided sports performance services to teams at Cedar Crest College, Emmaus High School, Allentown Central Catholic High School, and Parkland High School.  Rich also leads strength and speed classes at One City Center alongside our other sports performance coaches.
