Hey there, I'm Nicole! My very own health and fitness journey started when I was just in High School recovering from a sports injury that changed the way I thought about my body, both mentally and physically. Fitness healed me physically and the healthy habits I developed healed me mentally. I am now a trainer and coach to all types of beautiful men and women as they continue down their own unique fitness journeys!
