Born and raised in Greenwood, Indiana, Nathan has always been a huge advocate for physical fitness and athletics. Nathan began weight training and wrestled in high school which led to his love for physical fitness. After graduating high school, Nathan went on to get his bachelor's degree in sports management from the University of Indianapolis in 2016.
During that time Nathan began competing in bodybuilding and found his true passion for the sport! Now, Nathan runs a coaching business called Epler Elite Training & Nutrition. He has taken his bodybuilding career to new heights and some of his accolades include:
Junior National Overall Champion
USA Championships - Heavyweight Winner
Indy Pro - 2nd place
New York Pro - 1st place and Olympia qualification!
Mr. Olympia Contest - 5th place (5th best 212 bodybuilder in the world!)
Now, Nathan is ecstatic to be living out a dream of his and opening American Muscle Factory. He enjoys helping others, spending time with his wife, family, and friends, and enjoys traveling and being outdoors!
Tyler is Nathan's best friend of 16 years. Tyler also grew up playing sports but has battled with weight issues for some of his life. He has recently undergone a major transformation himself and lost 90 pounds in the last 6 months! Tyler is a huge advocate for bodybuilding, fitness, and inspiring others and is excited to bring a high level of energy to AMF! He has an immense amount of experience in sales, marketing, heating and cooling, and much more. He is a huge asset to the AMF team and is excited to welcome everyone to our facility.
Tyler has a huge personality and does not know a stranger! He enjoys hanging out with his family, friends, and his beautiful daughter Jaycee.
AMF is proudly owned and operated by a local family and people who generally care about the community and are ready to support thousands of people in their health and fitness journey. Brad and Kristin Epler are Nathan's parents and have happily helped support the opening of this facility. They have been supportive of their children's dreams since day one and they are so excited for everyone to make AMF truly a second home!
Alexa Epler is Nathan's high school sweetheart and wife of almost 5 years! She does photography, supports Nathan's endeavors in competing and business, and competes in bodybuilding as well. She enjoys the simpler things in life and loves to travel, she is a huge foodie, she loves making friends and meeting people, and she is a HUGE animal lover. Alexa is excited to welcome everyone to AMF and see everyone reach their potential.
