My name is Nicholas Dolph and I am a graduate from the class of 2012 from Dover High School.
While I was a student I spent a lot of my time in the gym or on the field for lacrosse.
My sports experience is where I first noticed my passion for fitness.
Once high school ended I slowly started to fall off of the wagon with my fitness goals. As I started to work different jobs I found less time to get a workout in.
I was young and had a poor balance of social life, work life, and my fitness.
In 2014 I was hired by Transcore – Delaware E-ZPass and quickly transitioned through different roles in the facility.
I’ve always enjoyed helping people in some aspect and as a Quality Assurance Clerk and Trainer, I have been able to further develop my goals in helping others reach their potential.
I’ve been training different types of classes since August of 2016 and I’ve loved every bit of it.
However, working in an office didn’t help my fitness and overall health.
My parents started going to Breakthrough and I would hear about the workouts they were doing and it reignited my interest in fitness that I had not felt since high school.
A couple of months passed and my parents were still going everyday at 5am and it really motivated me to better myself.
I gave Breakthrough a shot in December 2017 and I’ve been to almost every session since.
The gym used to be a hassle, but now I feel like something is missing if I don’t attend.
Breakthrough pushes and motivates individuals, creates a familial atmosphere and has given me a home away from home.
I’ve felt and seen a lot of growth over the past 11 months, not only in me, but in everyone I have met.
The progress I have been able to make is because of the personal trainers at Breakthrough.
I’m excited to take my desire for helping others and combine it with my passion for fitness in the realm of personal training.
