When I first went to Nicky for coaching I had a set goal in mind to compete but after this journey to get on stage I realised Nicky has helped me make a lifestyle change. I am a nurse, I work odd hours and shift work. My job is stressful and trying to fit training in and cooking 6 meals day to day is difficult. Nicky helped me with my nutrition so it made meal prepping easy and I didn’t have to go through all that stress and worry. She has given me the knowledge I need for me to be able to plan out my meals.

Nicky is not only my coach but my friend, mentor and has been such an inspiration. She has such a positive outlook which has really rubbed off on me and inspired me to want to help people with their health and weight/ lifestyle struggles too. I could not have done my prep without her and she has taught me so much.

Coming into this prep I wanted a coach who would be able to be there for me when I needed them. Nicky would often get an early morning text about something I was worried about or wasn’t sure about and she’d call me up straight away. I look forward to preparing for my future shows and knowing I have a coach that will be there for me 100%.

She is such an inspiration and I’m glad Nicky came into my life because she has opened my eyes up to so much more than just competing. I have so much to thank her for. She has taught me everything I needed to have a successful prep, right up to what I need to bring to stage for the best stage presence. I competed in the IFBB GC Classic and it was my first ever comp, I was stoked to receive first callout in a line-up of incredible girls. I’ve walked away from my comp more than determined than ever to improve for next year with Nicky. I am already looking forward to next season!
