Nicole M. Haffey

Nicole-web-pic1Owner & Founder, Nicole M. Haffey has a MS in Neuroscience with 14+ years experience as a Certified Pilates Teacher with certifications in Pilates mat, reformer, & barre. As a former D3 Collegiate Athlete, Nicole understands the mindset of training as a competitive athlete as well as the potential for injuries. After experiencing years of chronic lower back and ankle injuries throughout her athletic career, Nicole found pain relief from the core strengthening, gymnastic-based movements of Pilates. With her recent certification as a USA Weightlifting L1 Sports Performance Coach, Nicole is passionate about sharing her knowledge in relating two opposite styles of exercise; the slow, controlled movements of Pilates with the efficient, full body conditioning movements in Olympic lifts & Sports Performance.

Her integrated knowledge of diverse fitness modalities lends to her unique & creative approach towards wellness. Nicole’s well-rounded background has led to training experience with clients at various fitness levels ranging from intercollegiate athletes, training for sports performance to 60+yr olds looking to move healthier.

Nicole has found success in designing specialized training programs for athletes including runners, crossfitters & golfers where athletes work to strengthen specific areas of chronic weakness & build overall flexibility. Additionally, Nicole specializes in programming for Working class professionals where long hours  traveling abroad & sitting in desks all day wreak havoc on postural muscles and the body as a whole. A large portion of her success has been in developing personalized training programs for clients that utilize a combination of Pilates mat & apparatus work, Strength & Conditioning exercises and mobility exercises using both bands & myofascial release (MFR) techniques. Nicole’s adaptive training model provides clients with an endless variety of workouts contingent on where each client is at both physically & mentally during each session. She believes this steady  training progression is the secret to her client’s reaching their goals while preventing injuries.

“ My purpose is to create a fitness community that empowers individuals to train outside of their comfort zone. I hope to challenge you to think differently about the way you move your body; encouraging you to push through the mental barriers restricting your performance and also creating the body awareness to know when to stop. In my years of experience, I have seen people’s bodies and minds transform into positive, inspired individuals and I hope to promote that change.”
