Teaching fitness classes began as a hobby in 1998, but quickly became a passion for this active mom of two boys. I've taught a variety of class formats in my 14+ years leading group exercise classes; my favorite formats include ZUMBA®, Red Hot Dance Fitness, BootyBarre, BootyBarre Flex/Flow, strength conditioning, indoor cycling, fitness yoga, & bootcamp. I enjoy the diversity of teaching different formats & populations in both group fitness & personal training sessions.
I'm an avid runner with a special interest in full marathons & can often be seen hitting local roads & trails for an early morning run. I enjoy an energetic lifestyle which includes travel, dancing, strength training, skiing, boating, mountain biking and hiking. My favorite leisure activity is family time with my husband and sons. Active in my community through volunteerism, I aim to help individuals & families create healthy lifetime habits which result in better health & an improved quality of life.

The community I build within my classes/sessions is not typically experienced in 'traditional gym classes' - this is my passion! It's truly rewarding to train clients & see them progress to their highest potential – whether that’s feeling successful in fitness classes, improving functional range of motion, training for an event, successful weight loss/health maintenance, or just making a healthy lifestyle change. I'm a firm believer that exercise can be FUN! Try a class or session with me - you'll leave feeling refreshed, renewed, and happy!
Nichole's favorite workout mantra: "Better Health, Better Life!"

    I have always wanted to work out. My career is physical, but not personally physical. I've joined gyms and used videos. The personal interest and support that Nichole gives is that missing piece that I needed. I mean, BOOT CAMP!??!!! Seriously, I loved it!

    She made us all feel like a team. Our Zumba class has become a dancing book club!

    Suddenly I realized that my body had not "run" in 13 years!

    My take-away? "You're stronger than you think you are!" Amen!!!!

    Carol, your review makes my heart soar! You ARE stronger than you think! And I'm so happy to have you in my classes. See you soon!

    I actually look forward to Nichole's classes - especially Zumba! It is always an energy filled fun class with great music. She works very hard at what she does and it shows!

    Response by Nichole Sargent on Aug 10, 2012

    Thank you, Nancy! I'm so glad you're having fun & getting a great workout at Zumba! See you at the club!

    The University of Washington Bothell Recreation and Wellness Program contracted with Northshore Fitness to provide fitness instruction to our students since March of 2009. Nichole Sargent has offered a variety of fitness programs and participated in many other events in the interest of promoting health and wellness at UW Bothell.

    Northshore Fitness has offered a variety of class formats including Boot Camp, Core Conditioning 101, Cardio Conditioning 101, Outdoor Fitness, and Zumba. Nichole’s classes were fun, tailored for the various fitness levels of those attending, and were excellent workouts.

    Students love Nichole’s Zumba class and one student recently wrote: “The Zumba instructor [Nichole] that has been teaching the Zumba class on Wednesdays is AWESOME. It is hard to find a qualified and charismatic teacher for Zumba and she is both. We should definitely hire her back for Fall quarter.”

    Throughout my experience with Northshore Fitness, I have been most pleased with Nichole’s desire to offer true fitness solutions for students at this campus. Nichole was able to adapt class formats and schedules of classes to best accommodate the needs of UW Bothell students.

    I have taken classes by Nichole for several years. She always brings a positive energy level and terrific enthusiasm as well as the knowledge an instructor should possess in order to avoid injury while exercising!

    Thanks to you (Nichole) and the staff at Northshore Fitness, I really enjoyed your Boot Camp program. It worked well for me because I don’t like always doing the same thing every time. The way you mix up the workouts make it fun and it goes by fast. I appreciate your help in finding a low impact way for me to help my back. I’m looking forward to this fall. I’m even eating a little healthier………sometimes!!
