Meet Nicole

I have been an athlete for the majority of my life. I grew up in Tsawwassen, BC and was involved with multiple sports teams starting at a young age (soccer and competitive swimming were my two main sports). Once I was in high school, I decided to join the gymnastics and rugby team as well.

I started consistently weightlifting in 2012 with the thought of maybe one day competing in bodybuilding. In November of 2016, I competed in my first bikini show where I qualified for provincials – I fell in love with the sport and lifestyle!

In my spare time I enjoy skiing in the winter, hiking and laying beach side in the summer. I am a former gymnastics coach of 8 years and BCRPA certified trainer/group fitness instructor. There is no better feeling than motivating and pushing my clients to their full potential!

Place to visit or travel

I lived in Ghana, Africa for 6 months after I graduated high school. It was one of the best experiences of my life for sure and I’m itching to go back!

Extra Motivation

When I look back at how far I have come during my fitness journey, that’s what motivates me to keep going and pushing to achieve my goals. Living a healthy active lifestyle is what I do and love – I couldn’t imagine my life any other way!


Protein powder and BCAAS! I use a few different brands for my protein powder, Magnum, Mutant and Beyond Yourself usually. I’m big on Beyond Yourself AMRAP and Xtend for my BCAAS.
