I messaged Nicole via Facebook, and we discussed her experience as a professional figure competitor. I was introduced to Nicole in the Spring of 2017. I had just relocated to Washington DC, from Kansas City, Missouri. I needed to identify a new posing coach right away; as I was preparing for my IPE Pro Debut in the summer. I was referred to Nicole by the Legendary Pro bodybuilder Philip Ricardo, Jr. He told me that Nicole was one of the best in the area.
itor, coach, and dancer. She told me her posing studio was over two hours away from me. I was thinking; uhm I don’t want to travel that far (lol). However, I felt she and I “clicked” right away; and decided to go for it.
I learned a new approach to posing. She gave me the freedom to express myself, try new things, and get me out of my comfort zone. It was a very collaborative experience. She broke down everything she taught me; making it easy to understand each technique. The choreography was unique and beautiful. I liked the fact she did not have a “cookie-cutter” approach when she worked with me. Every concept was tailored to fit my physique and personality. She made herself available outside of the posing studio for my questions—and when I needed encouragement.
The hard work and two-hour drive was worth it. I earned first place at my IPE Pro debut! Nicole made my transition to a new city less stressful. I look forward to working with Nicole next season.
Thank you Nicole!!
