My name is Nicole and I’m the proud owner of Bounceback Fitness.
After many years in the corporate world, I took a chance to follow my passion and qualified as a Personal Trainer, completing the practical component with my mentor and Bounceback Fitness founder and author of “Whose Boobs Are These”, Joan Markwell.
My own journey with fitness began in my early twenties when I was diagnosed with insulin resistance (a pre-cursor to diabetes, which runs in my family) and in order to reverse the diagnosis, I needed to change my diet and exercise habits. After the initial weight came off and I started to build my fitness, I joined a triathlon/running group where my love of running was cemented and I haven’t looked back.
I believe strongly in the importance of functional strength training combined with core and cardio to provide a holistic approach to fitness and I love working with new (and not so new) mums to help them rebuild their strength and regain their sanity after baby. Finding a tribe and support network is so important in the early days of motherhood and beyond. BounceBack Fitness is a key part of that tribe as we provide a warm and welcoming environment where you can safely return to exercise and meet other women who are on the same journey as you.
As a mum of three, I’m also acutely aware of how time poor we are these days and I strive to make exercise a fun, challenging and satisfying part of everyone’s busy lives.
My qualifications include:
- Qualified Personal Trainer with a Certificate III and IV in Fitness
- Qualified Pre and Post Natal Trainer
- First aid and CPR training
- Thump Boxing Certified Trainer, Level 1 and Advanced
