Rana DeBoer chats with Nick Ovenden, President, GreatLife Golf & Fitness about taking his “why” to the next level in life, leadership, and business.
Nick Ovenden was born and raised in Sioux Falls, South Dakota by his parents and as a middle child of two brothers. He has a competitive edge which he channeled onto the football field. He started at a young age and eventually led to playing for the Vikings at Augustana College (SD) where he studied Exercise Science. With that passion for fitness and healthy lifestyles, he eventually moved to Minneapolis to work at Lifetime fitness while his wife, Alison, attended law school. After a few years of living life in the city as a lead fitness professional with his wife and dog he received a call to take his talents back to Sioux Falls to be the director of Fitness and Nutrition with a new company called GreatLIFE. The concept of Fitness and Golf coming together intrigued him, but more importantly, the opportunity to make a positive impact in his hometown. Two weeks after the call, he and Alison moved back to their college town and started a new adventure. Since 2014, Nick has been with GreatLIFE and became president in 2019. He enjoys spending time at the lake cabin with his daughters, volunteering at any local charity, hunting with his golden lab, or hanging with friends around the fire. Anyone who meets Nick will see his infectious smile and know he is a man after God’s heart and will go out of his way to make sure that you know that you are valued. He is also a Patriots fan, but don’t hold that against him.
