Starting Strength Coach

Nicholas Racculia

Associate Professor of Finance, Saint Vincent College

Owner/Operator of the small black iron gym, Iron City Athletic Club

Earned my Starting Strength Coach designation in December, 2012.

Authored an article on Training Optimality.

In the spring of 2017 I taught The Science of Human Strength course at Saint Vincent College. This 4 credit course (3 classroom and 1 lab) combines equal parts classroom learning with time on the platform. Subject matter experts present on Anatomy, Physiology and Physics and multiple starting Strength Coaches have guest lectured.

I currently moderate the very active Saint Vincent College Health and Fitness Club. Please check out this page to see some of the accomplishments of our lifters!

I direct the Physical Culture Education Series. The series has featured the following outstanding speakers: Mark Rippetoe and Jonathon Sullivan. Please watch for upcoming announcements regarding future speakers. The lectures are free and open to the public.
