Nova3Labs Story

The creation of Nova 3 Labs started with Mike Kesthely – A firefighter, paramedic, and fitness enthusiast. As a shift worker in the first responder world, you are at the extreme end of sleep quality. Working night shifts as a firefighter and paramedic, you can sleep for 1 hour, and then get woken up to go out on an emergency call. You’re sleep schedule and rhythm are totally off, all the time. Because of this, Mike was always experiencing terrible sleep quality and grogginess. Along with the terrible sleep quality brings the problem of adrenal fatigue. First responders and shift worker experience unorthodox work hours, adrenaline rushes, and crashes. So with the combination of terrible sleep and adrenal fatigue, Mike was wiped. All the time. He was trying every which way to help with this problem, which included many different supplements and pills at the time to just try and get a good night’s sleep and feel normal. Mike was fed up with taking multiple pills and supplements, so one day said enough was enough, there has to be a better way! With plenty of research, Mike created was what needed to make a one stop shop product to fix this problem – Max Adrenal. After creating this product, his life was changed forever. He could work day and night and not feel groggy, while getting a good night’s sleep. Not only was he just not feeling groggy but his mental clarity was back! This was the flagship product that started Nova 3 Labs. Mike couldn’t stop there though, he had to share his creation with his coworkers, as he saw them struggling with the same problems he had before. Mike gave them Max Adrenal, and it worked! He saw improvement in their health, mental clarity, and human performance. After this, he launched Nova 3 Labs – a company built to help millions around the world improve their health, life, and performance. It’s not just for firefighters and first responders. Troubled sleep quality and adrenal health are something many people struggle with daily. Look no further now, with Nova 3 Labs. 

Nova3Performance Story

Brian and Morgan met in the gym, fell in love in the gym and are raising their kids in the gym. It may be your typical gym love story, where the Coach meets the girl and they fall in love, but don’t be fooled, they are not JUST husband and wife, but also business partners. Both passionate about fitness and health, Nova 3 Performance became a natural evolution of their devotion to enact a shift in people’s mindset surrounding their health.  

For over 15 years, Brian has been coaching individuals of all capabilities. Being a competitive athlete his entire life, and always having health at the forefront of his mind, it was a natural transition for Brian to begin coaching and sharing his knowledge. Working with a very diverse group of individuals with a multitude of different goals and focuses, Brian has had the opportunity to really dive into the science behind fitness and discover more about what breeds success in the health and fitness industry. Brian’s current focus is coaching Coaches as well as a group of fitness enthusiasts dedicated to growth. His core belief is that every single person is different and your success within the gym will be dictated by your ability to tap into what makes you unique. What keeps Brian going? He wants to be the reason you don’t quit.  

Morgan brings not only a passion for mindset and nutrition, but also an extensive track record of operating successful businesses. From a young age, Morgan dedicated all her spare time to learning about nutrition and mindset. She believes that there is a lot to be discovered within our own mind and that our direction is directly influenced by our perception. All of this came to fruition during some of the most challenging times in Morgan’s life where she really had to put these beliefs into practice. When a life changing ATV accident derailed Morgan’s athletic endeavors, her mindset and nutrition practices became imperative in helping her recover physically and mentally. Translating attitude and mindset into business, Morgan’s relentless nature has been the forefront of growth for multiple business and operations over the past 13 years.
