Riveroak Fitness, Celebrates its first-year anniversary in Asheville, NC
Riveroak Fitness – and their slogan 'care to be human?' has continued to grow over the course of their first year in Asheville.
By: Riveroak Fitness
Riveroak is not your typical gym or fitness club, it is a boutique environment where the personal trainers work closely with their 'family' (clients always become members of their family), to positively impact lives – this is through healthy choices, physical activities, and programs, including yoga and massage. They take pride in working to uncover issues and ways to work through them, including collaborating with other professionals and organizations. Their slogan – care to be human?, is not simply a statement, it is embodied in every one of their team members as well as those external professionals that they work with on the journey to a healthier life.
Nico and his team work to understand the lifestyle and challenges, and works to provide and implement them gradually so that they become a part of your life. Replacing bad habits with good habits.
Eric Perkins – Riveroak Co-owner and often times guinea pig, is as passionate as Nico in seeing lives changed. "It has been simply amazing to see the changes people have made. Many come in with various expectations, and Nico and the team, work to safely correct or adjust those expectations and then we marvel as they're achieved in someone's life."
The reviews on the various social media platforms speak for themselves.
This man is the best! I've never been so motivated to get to the gym. His personal one on one training is like none I've ever experienced in any of the other local gyms I've trained in. Nic really got me on the right track to a fit body and a healthy lifestyle. He understands limitations due to injury and age and works with them to get you to be the best you can be. Thanks, Nic! You are the greatest!
This is a top-notch fitness facility!!! The staff here are insanely knowledgeable and I felt like family as soon as we met!! So grateful you all in the community and spreading the fitfam love!!!

Beautiful space!! So much love and 🔥🔥🔥in that room 🙏🏻💃🏻🌀howtobelight🔥🔥🔥
Nicholas is great. He changes it up every week and makes working out fun.
Our sessions are fun, [Nico] is professional, yet personable and always very encouraging.
There's always great energy and a place where you can work out and feel comfortable about yourself.
[Nico] showed me how to do shorter, efficient workouts that would not affect my injury and they helped me improve my mobility.
Over the course of the next year, we will showcase the stories of those who have been impacted by the Riveroak team.
Yet, Nico and the team have not stopped there. Nico has been a critical founder in forming Asheville's first fitness and health professionals' group in order to come together and support each other in helping the residents of Western North Carolina. The organizations first meeting is September 27th and is the last Thursday of every month.
The Riveroak team consists of not only Nico and Eric but also of Staci (personal trainer) and Audra (yoga instructor).
