Growing up a tomboy in the East Bronx, Nicole was introduced to sports at the age of 8, when her summers were spent playing pick-up basketball games and riding bike around her neighborhood. While Nicole tried everything from softball to running track & hurdles, her love for basketball was a constant, and led her to play Center/Power Forward on the Varsity team at the her local High School.
While studying Film & Theatre in college, Nicole tried to stay active but was left unfulfilled by her subpar options. Eventually some close friends recommended Crossfit as a solution to that team competitiveness and commodore that she was desperately missing. All it took was one intro class, and she was hooked!
Believing that there’s always something new to learn, Nicole can now be found either hanging around the gym, or reading up on different training methodologies. She feels fortunate to have learned from such great coaches along the way, and strives to be better and stronger everyday. She hopes that her enthusiasm and motivation inspires others to do the same.
