After graduating from Georgia State University with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology, Nabil began working as a performance coach at Velocity Sports Performance in Atlanta, Georgia. He then moved to California to become the Sports Performance Director of Velocity in Concord, California. It was here that he was first introduced to CrossFit from a fellow co-worker in 2006. At that time Nabil was participating in triathlons and would add in one to two CrossFit workouts each week for variety. Immediately after completing an Ironman triathlon in the fall of 2007 he began using CrossFit as his exclusive form of exercise. In 2008, Nabil competed in the 2nd annual CrossFit Games in Aromas, CA. After Velocity Sports Performance, Nabil worked in a commercial gym where he began using CrossFit training methods with his private clients as well as started a group CrossFit class in the fall of 2008. In 2009 Nabil opened CrossFit Sweat Shop at it’s current location in Walnut Creek, CA.
