What SHINE Clients Are Saying About Nicole...


Nicole helped me move the scale again by believing that I could.

I switched gyms at a point in which my life-altering weight loss began to creep back on. I was offered a free trial month of group training as an incentive to join the new gym and Nicole was the Trainer.

Nicole helped me move the scale again by believing that I could. She introduced me to an entire new world of strength training that brought new benefits to my previous cardio-only based workouts.

I have been a client of Nicole's for over 3 years and I know if it were not for her coaching and guidance, I wouldn't be where I am today . Never thought I would be in better shape at almost 62 than I was at 42! Love my Guns!

I feel stronger, healthier, and more energetic than I have in many years.

After four years of not exercising, feeling increasingly tired, and eating and unhealthy food, I knew I needed to change. I also knew that I lacked the motivation to make changes without an accountability partner.

Nicole helped me make a plan for exercise and healthy eating, but she has actually given me much more than that. She is a consistent source of support and inspiration. She is a coach, encourager, partner, and teacher. I really appreciate that she is willing to challenge me .

I have had a very positive experience with Nicole. You will never regret investing in your health. I feel stronger, healthier, and more energetic than I have in many years.

Nicole has a unique way of looking at the body

What started as a knee issue turned into a full-on health evaluation as Nicole convinced me that at 49, I should take a different look towards my body and my overall health habits. As a guy who never was a "health coach" person, Nicole has pushed me into a space that while awkward at first has turned into a big fan and advocate.

I currently am in the midst of a wellness plan and have already seen great results. While challenging, given a heavy workload and frequent travel, I am committed to following Nicole's plan as I want to see how healthy I can become.

Nicole has a unique way of looking at the body -- a whole-body approach to diet, strength training, exercise, and more. She's a positive push to anyone who wants to live longer and healthier.

It was time to make a drastic change in my health

It was time to make a drastic change in my health, particularly my weight.

Nicole helped me — and continues to help me — address the effect of my emotions on my health. She provides solid advice, compassion, encouragement and effective tools.

Nicole is knowledgeable, patient, firm, kind and non-judgmental She cares about the health of her clients, no matter where they are on that path or what road they take to achieve their goals. I can think of no one better to walk alongside me on this journey.
