Nicole is a Southern California native who has lived in Colorado for three years. Prior to moving here she went to college in Arizona at Arizona State University where she received a BS in Human Nutrition with a pre-medicine core. She played sports in high school and had always been an avid runner, participating in over a handful of half marathons, and many 5 and 10 K’s in her early twenties.
During her time at ASU, she began to enjoy strength training and found she wanted to learn more about exercise physiology and its relationship to nutrition. She spent time with the Sports Dietitian at ASU who worked closely with the football team to learn how nutrition affects athletic performance. This led to a desire to become a personal trainer, and so she became certified through NCCPT. From there, she worked as a coach facilitating strength and rehab exercises with patients in physical therapy. She also obtained a group fitness certification through SICFIT, a Scottsdale, AZ-based facility.
Most recently, she helped patients lose 10-80 pounds as a personal trainer and nutritionist in medical weight loss supervised by a physician.
Nicole is currently in grad school studying Clinical Nutrition to better inform clients on the very integral role nutrition plays. She is very interested in the way nutritional status affects weight loss, muscle gain, athletic performance, as well as general wellness.
