I have been training in Health and Movement for over 10 years, studying under some of the most respected doctors and coaches in the world. An Australian expat and a surfer since childhood, my studies are a reflection of what I see around me.
Growing up in a surf community and now living in a city like Los Angeles, I came to recognize universal broken movement patterns and a persistent environment that limits human movement.
With an evolutionary perspective and a host of well-versed mentors, I have formed a holistic vision of health that is always expanding.
I am a student of Foundation Training, Functional Range Conditioning, Ginastica Natural, the CHEK system, Power Speed Endurance and Precision Nutrition.
It took us roughly 300,000 years to evolve into the human bodies we have today. We descended from the trees, learned how to walk and figured out how to create fire. And our brains grew rapidly as a result of the huge increase in calories and nutrition that came from being able to cooked eat meat and root vegetables.
We are a highly adaptive species. Just because we can look back and see how we evolved, does not mean that we have stopped evolving to this day. We are still adapting to the very environment that we have now created for ourselves.
Before today, survival meant that we were constantly on the move. We were nomads and everyday we would be running, jumping, throwing, carrying, and when we had what needed, we would retreat to our small communities, socialize with close friends and family and rest and relax as we needed. Our bodies adapted to conserve energy, and we ate only what we needed.
As we shifted into the industrial age, we designed our lives to be as comfortable as possible. So much so, that we now consume food that is void of nutrition and high in calories, drive cars wherever we need to go and, when we get to our place of work or rest, collapse into our comfortable furniture, compressing our insides, causing us to feel sluggish, sick and, over time, in pain.
We now move less and eat more than we ever have in history and, as a result, chronic pain and illness are becoming the norm. The speed at which we are evolving cannot keep up with our advancements in technology and so a re-education is needed in order to look back at what we have been naturally selected to do and use that information to balance the effect that our modern lifestyle is having upon us.
Our DNA holds hundreds of thousands of years worth of experience and it can reprogrammed based on how we live our lives. I'm in the business of movement. Every time you move, you are telling your DNA how to express itself. It is my goal to use this information to help you adapt for the better.

I sought Nick out to help me with some stress-related issues, both physical and mental. My gut was a constant source of discomfort, with almost every type of food and drink aggravating the symptoms. My back was also a constant source of pain. I was struggling to concentrate at work, I was struggling to sit comfortably and I was struggling to maintain a positive outlook on life.
The way Nick approached my situation was truly holistic in nature. With a bottom-up approach, he sought out an understanding of the baseline of my issues. From the start, I noticed that Nick had an innate ability to rationalize why my body and mind may be reacting in certain ways, imparting personal anecdotes of his own struggles & triumphs to assist with my own understanding of the root cause/s of my symptoms.
Nick complemented our weekly sessions with helpful, heartfelt notes throughout the working week to jog my memory and motivate me to continue with the behavioral, physical & dietary adjustments. He also prompted me to start thinking about what I value most in life - what truly makes me happy; what my short & long term goals were; what balance I thought I really needed to maintain a healthy, happy & successful lifestyle.
Nick helped me through a very difficult period in my life. In a short amount of time, Nick helped to fix my stomach & my back, but more importantly, he helped to bring positivity & happiness back into my daily life. He is empathetic, learned & 100% committed to truly helping you become the best version of yourself. I will be forever grateful for the time, effort, & advice that Nick gave me.
Nicks knowledge on mobility and functional human potential seemed to be never ending! Was an absolute pleasure to learn about foundation training for my back as well as some solid foundational movements and stretches to assist in surfing and everyday life.
I loved working with Nick. He's very passionate about what he does and he's able to share this passion with his clients. He's a very loving, caring person and really takes his time to get to know you. He never gave me the feeling that we had to rush through it. The meetings are fun, always very different. He knows how to share his knowledge in a fun, yet affective way. We'd talk about solutions for my health in his backyard, at the beach, during hikes etc. I recommend him to anyone who's looking for a coach that doesn't just gives you a meal/workout plan on how to get your health back, but rather someone that guides you through it and gives you a clear understanding of holistic health so you can eventually continue a lifestyle supporting good health on your own.
Being a tall and active human working a full time desk job means lower back ailments are a constant threat to inhibiting my fast paced lifestyle. Having been forever diligent with stretching and strengthening and having called on multiple physios when required yet have never been able to conquer the ongoing dull pain and tightness. Upon a random meeting with Nick at Home Holistic I recognised that his approach was very different to most professionals in the exercise and physiology space. He told me about his background, studies and ongoing development of his own training and skills. Much of this spoke to a total body balance and activating key muscles that have a tendency to become ‘lazy’. I was open to a session and 2 days later we met for a sunrise training. I thought ‘foundation and anchoring’ would be easy! It is supposed to be if the right muscles are active and do the work. Really highlighted areas within my body that were weaker than they should be and that they needed to be re trained to do more of the heavy lifting to release the imbalance in my lower back. Was completely amazed at the progress we made within 1 session! The dull pain was instantly relieved and pressure was released. 1 session!! Did not expect immediate results and have become an advocate of Nick’s training methods. Armed with some ongoing mentoring was able to develop a 5-10min routine that forms part of my warm up before any training session. The improvements in my mobility, agility and speed continue to evolve and I can only attribute that to the changes Nick helped me with to unlock the full range of motion in my body. Easy and quick results never sounded right when it comes to addressing long term ailments but my experience was nothing short of that. Have recommended family and friends to Home Holistic for advice and training. We all have appreciated the insights and learnings from an experienced operator.
“As a longtime seeker of health and well-being and as a person who has struggled my whole life with immune system issues, I’ve found there is nothing more amazing than having a coach to help me get through the rough patches of physical, mental and emotional challenges. Nick Voroshine’s inspiration and energy meet me in those valleys with a well-honed repertoire of new and old training modalities that always inspires me. Nick is as energetic in creating a finely tuned program for me as he is dedicated to listening to my needs with an informed and creative response. I always leave with more energy and capacity to re-create the work from the workout sessions at home. Nick’s innate and personal quest for the best available whole body support is tailored though his own personal repeated results and with his many clients. I’m beyond fortunate to have a trainer so dedicated to helping me co-create a path to ongoing wellness.”

I started seeing Nick mid-way through recovery of a lower back injury... as a supplement to the standard of care (physical therapy). After just two back to back sessions with Nick, my recovery was really accelerating and not hard to recognize why. Stuck with it through a full recovery and continuing to incorporate the lessons and principles learned from Foundation Training into every day life. I can't say the same is true of what I learned in physical therapy. My experience with foundation training is that it seems to address mobility in a holistic way where current standardized therapy practices don't seem to have the full picture. Highly recommend Nick and his thoughtful and personalized practice!

After an extremely hard few months of work, my lower back was an absolute mess. I could not even touch my knees. I have always been an active person and still looked like I was in great shape but the truth is I was in pain. I also had just booked a few week long surf trip and was feeling frustrated, at this point in time there was no hope of me getting on a surfboard.
I went to see doctors, chiropractors, and masseuses. They all provided some relief, for the most part it was always temporary.
I reached out to Nick ( Home Holistic LA) and told him of current state and upcoming trip. I had a month to get back into shape.
We worked together a few times a week for that month. Nick not only got my spine back in shape, but got me eating healthier, taught me some breath work to help with stress and surfing, also got me in amazing surf shape. I felt so strong and confident on my trip. It was better than any gym work I could have done.

I have been working with Nick from Home Holistic LA for a few months now which has been nothing but extremely beneficial for my ongoing mobility and recovery. With having such a busy training and race schedule in Obstacle course racing, trail racing and fitness events I knew it was imperative that working with a trained professional in keeping my body in check was crucial to a successful year. Couldn't recommend this anymore and feel it has aided in my successful performances to start off the year.

Working with nick was great for me. At that particular time in my life I was very uneducated and unfamiliar with nutrition, diet, and the many foods around me that are harmful for my body. What REALLY is it that I’m putting into my mouth? Is it a cock? Part of my work with nick meant he would survey and analyze my diet so that we could, slowly but surely pinpoint certain foods that were harmful to me, or were even the cause of something negative in my body bag I was unaware of. i now have a better and more correct understanding of FOOD in general and which foods work best with my body. I was shocked with a lot of what I learned with nick and about how ignorant I was about nutrition. We literally are a result of what we put into our bodies. Diet and food was just a small part of nick and l’s work together. I am a pretty physical person and have to maintain a certain level of fitness and aesthetic for my work, so exercise was another component to our work together. The world of exercise is a world I thought I was pretty familiar with, but nick rein-formed me in this area by helping me realize a more effective way to exercise, which which resulted In an improvement in mobility and core strength. Anyone who reading this and thinking “ah well I already know lots about nutrition and I already know what foods I can and can’t eat” - don’t be fooled - I had the same mindset before working with nick but there really was so much for me to learn. I was hungry to learn and incredibly inspired after every session. That was my favorite part about working with nick, how truly inspired he made me.

Working with Nick and participating in Foundation Training was an exceptional experience. I am a very healthy 45 year old man but as time has ticked by I have been unable to escape certain issues that come with age and lower back pain from bulging disk has been a hurdle I have had to address. The last thing I wanted to do was have surgery but I needed a fix as I was unable to participate in the workouts I needed to stay of sound mind and body. I met with Nick on referral from a friend and the short story is my lower left back pain is gone. But to be fair my back wasn't the only thing that walked away feeling better. The practice Nick teaches provided a whole body wellness. The breathing teachings alone left me feeling clearer and brighter. Its hard to explain foundation training without experience it but I have recommended several people over to Nick and they have all come back with positive results. The greatest wealth in this world you can have is your health. Nick has helped me get back to form and I have made a lifelong friend in the process. Nick knows more about the inner and outer workings of the human body than I knew was possible!
If your serious about your health and longevity and are willing to put in the work....Nick and Home Holistic LA is a no brainer.

Besides being one of the most friendly and smiling guys on the planet Nick is extremely well adversed in his understanding of how the body works. I'm a former top 10 world champion surfer and have been training my whole life so injury and rehab is not uncommon for me. I understand the importance of proper recovery, rehab and maintenance to return to 100% and stay there. Nick helped me with a bulging disc issue in my neck. With a combination of mobility and breathing exercises I made a full recovery. I've also been able to have zero repercussions now for 4 months as I continue doing the exercises suggested. If you are down to put in the energy to commit to the movements and breath work giving to you by Nick you will make a full recovery, stay fit and enjoy yourself in the process. Have a great day.
