Hi, we're NAKOA.


We’re passionate about making a difference in people’s lives. Whether is eliminating pain, improving performance, or simply keeping you healthy, our team is dedicated to getting you exactly where you want to be.

NAKOA Performance & Physical Therapy

We are a performance training and physical therapy facility in Carlsbad, California. We offer semi-private and private training options in our facility as well as physical therapy and rehabilitation services.

Our online training programs are a digital version of what we do in our gym because we believe athletes of any level anywhere in the world should have access to the best training.

We specialize in science-based performance, custom program design, and training all levels of athletes from novice to elite to perform at their highest potential. We educate, coach, and develop life skills to ensure success. We have fun but our mindset for building up a new client is serious. Our flow includes assessing current standing, identifying areas of strength versus areas of need, cross-referencing with goals. We then build a program to balance, prevent injury and progress so that goals are achieved. From there, we’re continuously building to evolve progress, retest, analyze and repeat.
