Nick DiMarco is the Director of Strength & Conditioning for Elon University in North Carolina. He was named to that position in February 2018.
Prior to Elon, DiMarco spent three years with the Iowa Hawkeyes as the assistant strength and conditioning coach for the football program. He rejoined the Hawkeyes after spending the 2013 season with the program as a intern.
DiMarco rejoined the Iowa program after playing in the NFL as an outside linebacker in 2014. He spent time with the New York Jets and Baltimore Ravens.
DiMarco earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in physical education and strength and conditioning from William Penn in and a Master of Science in exercise science, performance enhancement and injury prevention, from California University of Pennsylvania. He is currently pursuing his PhD in Health and Human Performance from Concordia University-Chicago. He also holds damn near every Strength Coach certification in the book, which you will be able to syphon out of our interview with him.
We talk about how he started training his own peers while he was still in college and how that was the first example of how Nick is a trendsetter and pusher of boundaries in the field. We discuss much of his philosophy on training a college football team and draw many comparisons between what he does with his team, and how we use to do things at Iowa.
This is the ultimate nerd out episode so much of this will fly over the heads of our average listener that has no interest in strength and conditioning. However dispersed throughout the episode are plenty of comments and conversations about Nick's time at Iowa, Discussion on freak athletes like Wirfs and Scherff, what he learned being part of that staff, and his favorite memories of those 3 years.
