Nicolette is a certified personal trainer through the National Academy of Sports Medicine and holds a Bachelors Degree from CSU, Chico in Business with an emphasis in Exercise Science. She also holds several certifications in yoga, spinning, and various other group fitness instruction certifications. Her evolution into fitness began when she was a dancer and choreographer at the age of sixteen. In college, one of her first jobs was a group fitness instructor at Gold’s Gym. She has been in the fitness industry as a group fitness instructor since the age of eighteen and a personal trainer since the age of twenty-one. After college, she met her husband, Tom, in Hollywood, both personal training on the celebrity scene. In 1999, they moved to Orange County and opened their first private training facility. Alongside that facility, Nicolette opened a yoga studio, where she developed its unique classes and instructor training program. Both studios are open and thriving today.
In 2004, Tom and Nicolette opened Living Fitness, an upscale private training facility in Newport Coast. Since then, Nicolette has always felt there was a growing demand for group instruction and especially for something that was versatile, exciting, targeted, effective and fun. She feels FitBar definitely fits that bill. Drawing upon her extensive personal training, yoga and dance background, Nicolette created Fitbar in 2009. FitBar combines elements of strength training mixed with cardio dance conditioning utilizing the ballet barre. Nicolette’s classes are high energy and challenging. She inspires and motivates each client to give 100% both in and outside of class to achieve their fitness goals.
