The Training Den

Trainers And Instructors

Nicole has 20 years of experience in the health and wellness industry. She started her love affair with movement at a young age as a gymnast. Her interest grew and she competed in swimming, soccer, volleyball and basketball while in school. Later years competed in triathlons and half marathons. While in college, Nicole worked in orthopedics and neurology. This gave her the opportunity to apply her book knowledge & turn into practical training and experience.

Nicole has coached gymnastics as well as managed large gyms and physician’s offices. Her knowledge is very broad and holds 28 accredited certifications in her field, making her a master of her craft with over 38,000 hours of training under her belt. In those years, Nicole has mentored 12 trainers and trained multiple high end clients, athletes and disabilities like Cerebral Palsy and Multiple Sclerosis. When Nicole lived in Florida, she trained the mayor of her city as well as was featured in print for her training skills. Her dedication to her work in rehabilitation and corrective exercise has allowed Nicole to build relationships with some of Denver's best physicians and chiropractors.

Nicole is very good at helping people overcome their limitations. She listens and provides practical experience to help people meet their goals. Nicole provides not only excellent care to her clients but is able to help clients meet their goals with evidence based training. Nicole opened The Training Den in 2018 after moving to Colorado. There, she has created a safe, clean space for people to grow, heal and transform. Her knowledge has allowed her to cultivate a positive atmosphere in her studio. Her trainers are professional and have an excellent knowledge of biomechanics, nutrition, weight loss and corrective exercise.

She loves the physical challenge of training and her most recent passion is handstands. "When my world felt upside down the only thing that made me feel right side up was to be upside down with it".
