Nicole believes as Edward Smith-Stanley once said, “Those who do not find time for exercise will have to find time for illness.” Simply put, the body is built to move and all of the human body systems are positively influenced by exercise. A healthy body provides the foundation for living a good life.
Nicole is a NASM Personal Trainer; ACE Group Fitness Instructor; Athletic Strength and Conditioning Coach; Certified TRX Instructor; Certified Kettlebell Instructor; Certified Barre Instructor; Certified Mossa Strength Training Instructor. Nicole believes in the science that says that for optimal results, we all should try to exercise 2-4 times per week. The science also says that you need to know what to do and how to do it for the best results.
As a personal trainer, Nicole knows what exercises to pair together, how many reps should be pursued, how many sets should be attempted, starting weight selections, how to progress the workout, how to regress the workout, and most importantly, what should your form/technique look like. Nicole stresses how important it is to have excellent form to both avoid injury and to maximize results. 3 days per week in the gym is all you need to see optimal results when your trainer knows what to do and how to do it!
