My love for fitness began at 6 years old when I started taking gymnastics and swimming lessons. I pursued gymnastics seriously until I was 14 years old, when a shoulder reconstruction forced me to retire from the sport. I immersed myself in the fitness world and at age 17, I was certified by Fitness Resource Associates (FRA) as a personal trainer. Previous to this, I taught gymnastics at Maplewood Day Camp and the Gymnastics Academy of Boston and also taught aerobics for kids at Kidsport. After attending Boston University and School of the Museum of Fine Arts, I graduated from UMASS Boston’s Honors Program with my BA in English and Art. From there I graduated from Emerson College’s MFA program in Creative Writing and Publishing. I was an adjunct Professor of English at Emerson College, Bridgewater State College, and Massasoit Community College from 2001-2006 and today, I still work part-time at Massasoit as an English professor.

However, despite the background in English, in 2003, my passion for working out was reignited when I began training with a competitive bodybuilder. I was often found training and preparing nutritional programs for my co-workers, family, and friends and in 2008, I was re-certified as a trainer by the American College of Sports Medicine (ASCM). Since then I have trained and provided nutritional advice for clients ranging in age from 12 – 72, all of whom have a variety of fitness needs and span a wide range of fitness levels. I was also responsible for teaching the notoriously hard, twice weekly “Boot Camp” class for the last 5 years at Milton Hill gym. I have experience working with a diverse clientele; my clients currently include high school and college students, doctors, lawyers, CFOs, CEOs, and many more. I stay current with new training techniques through networking with other trainers and attending national conferences to keep up with the latest fitness trends. I have worked alongside fitness and figure competitors, bodybuilders, chiropractors and physical therapists, which has provided me with a wealth of knowledge for training and nutrition planning. In 2010, I was introduced to Crossfit and quickly found a new love. Currently, I combine training techniques from strength and conditioning, bodybuilding, and Crossfit, in order to create the best program possible for each individual client based on his/her needs and desires.

    I began working out with Nicole after being treated for a recurrent breast cancer. As a woman who has been active all of my life, I didn't expect her to teach me anything new, I was only looking for a little 'support' as I regained my strength and routine after surgeries and chemotherapy. I intended to utilize her for about 3 months. It is almost three years later and Nicole is still training me! I love her style of fitness. She incorporates strength training with cardio in every workout and I am never bored with the routine. (We have NEVER repeated any workout in the time I have known her!) She is an excellent trainer- she knows how to push me and she also knows when I should back off. I have never felt stronger and my overall health is great! My work life is extremely busy but the convenience of Nicole coming to my home has allowed me to continue to maintain my routine of working out regularly. She's a gem!
