About Nicole

I am a wife, a mother, an engineer, a fitness enthusiast, a group exercise instructor, a Beachbody coach and a nationally qualified NPC bikini competitor.  I love lifting weights, long walks on the beach, red wine, dark chocolate, playing cards with my family and snuggling on the floor with my sweet Rottweiler.

My journey to living fit started in my early 30s.  I struggled with weight my whole life and never felt satisfied with where I was at.  I associated being “skinny” with eating less and running a lot.  Well, I didn’t like to run and l love to eat, so my dreams of being “skinny” were just that, dreams.  I finally found balance after meeting an excellent trainer and a support group of wonderful women at a local gym.  I learned the concepts behind clean eating and choosing nutrient dense foods that would provide my body with fuel.  I changed my diet and began strength training 3-5 times per week.  I immediately saw changes in my body, and my confidence and energy sored through the roof! I am passionate about health and fitness and started this page to share that passion with others.  I have many tips and tricks on juggling your fitness goals with being a working mother and wife.  My schedule doesn’t allow me to spend hours at the gym or in the kitchen.  I have been replacing my typical gym workouts with the Beachbody programs for the past couple years (21 Day Fix Extreme, T25 and Insanity Max).  It allows me to stay in shape while having more time with my family.  The shakes provide me with dense nutrition when I am on the go.  I make healthy choices not only for myself but for my family.
