Nicole Barnes

Nicole is the Passionate Coach with a zest for life. Nicole's passion for health is contagious and sharing her passion with others is where she finds personal fulfillment.


Health has been a part of Nicole's life from a young age. Some of Nicole' s earliest memories were of sitting in the back of her mom's aerobic class watching people workout. Growing up with the knowledge and practice of nutrition and exercise gave Nicole tremendous self esteem.

Reflecting back on her college days Nicole was grateful to be confident in her own skin. She appreciated this so much that she decided to dedicate her life to helping others find out what they were capable of and developing their own confidence.

Nicole is very empathetic and nurturing. Perhaps because of her many roles in life the one that she takes the most pride in is being a mother. Nicole enjoys working with those who are brand new to the world of health and not sure where to start.

If you feel nervous, confused, and maybe even vulnerable Nicole is the coach for you. Her approach is direct but soft, and strong yet compassionate. Health and its factors can seem intimidating and complicated but Nicole endeavors to make health accessible by drawing on the strengths you carry inside of yourself.

Nicole's approach brings simplicity to nutrition, exercise, and other areas that you may need to be your best self.


What Clients Are Saying

I started working out with Nicole over two years ago. Leading up to that time, I was recovering from a near-fatal car accident and was struggling emotionally and physically to get my life back together. Due to the accident, I had been out of work for 4 months and was recovering from a brain injury, back injury and knee surgery along with previous hip surgery. I was seeing a chiropractor three days a week, walking with a walker, and seeing a therapist once a week to work through severe depression. At 27 I was completely reliant on multiple antidepressants and was feeling lost and detached from myself.

Like fate, I stumbled upon Nicole on Instagram and reached out explaining my injuries and asking if she thought she could work with me to help me regain some strength. I reached out to work on physical strength but what I ended up receiving was so much more than just physical. At the start, I couldn’t do lunges without wobbling to the side or use a jump rope without tripping but slowly but surely she worked with my body to regain the strength it hadn’t felt in years. She always erred on the side of caution and gave my body the time it needed to rebuild itself. Her vast knowledge of the human body and muscle composition was integral in ensuring I never took on more than I was ready for.

I quickly found myself laughing more, sleeping better, feeling more confident. I learned to love my body again and to not look at it as a broken shell. Nicole started to incorporate nutrition coaching in our time together as I was eager to get the most out of my workouts. I learned to respect my body and fuel it with food that would help it thrive. Through taking care of my body I realized I was taking care of my entire self. I came off of anti-depressants for the first time in 15 years. I finally felt strong in who I was.

Nicole is a Coach in every sense of the word. She pushes me when I need to be pushed and she supports me when I need to slow down. She is patient but firm, she is fun but productive, she is warm but challenging. She will never give me more than I can handle but she will always show me I can handle so much more than I think I can. Nicole transformed my life and I will never be able to put it into words how grateful I am to have her in my court. If you get the opportunity to meet Nicole you will know within the first moments of meeting her that she is someone truly special. The best part of this though is that she will help you to see that you are truly special as well.
