Nicola has always had an interest in exercise and movement, participating in Nippers and playing hockey at a local club from a young age. In her early twenties she took up AFL, playing in the WAFLW and Sydney Women’s AFL. After a stint on the sidelines during pregnancy, she has just returned to the Perth Football League. Working in an environment that is supportive and inclusive are some of the important values Nicola has sought to bring to her career in health and exercise.

Nicola completed her tertiary studies at the University of Western Australia and funded her experience by working part time at the university sport and recreation centre teaching classes and personal training. Part of her role was to run the older adults’ fitness program as well as the female fitness program. Working with these populations not only gave her valuable practical experience, but uncovered a passion for working with these populations. Nicola’s exercise science knowledge, communication skills and passion for making a difference to others’ lives were central to her enjoyment and success in this role.

Since graduating from her undergraduate degree 12 years ago, Nicola has worked in a number of different capacities in the fitness industry including as a group fitness instructor, small group functional trainer, personal trainer and as a strength and conditioning coach in both the Sydney AFL Women’s League and the WAFLW. Nicola is just as dedicated to her own training, having engaged in sports specific strength and conditioning training to enhance her AFL playing and more recently having made a full return to training after having a baby.

Nicola is also a secondary school teacher where she teaches Health, Physical Education and Science. What makes Nicola successful as a personal trainer, teacher and coach is the authenticity of her commitment to a healthy lifestyle and a passion for helping others achieve their best. She will bring this passion for exercise and health to her role as a personal trainer at Chaotic Energy and looks forward to sharing this with you.
