My 15 year old daughter is a 3rd degree black belt in Taekwondo who's goal is to be an Olympian. She competes regularly on the National and International level. She suffers from Asthma and is on regular daily medications to control her attacks. She was invited to train with the US National TKD Team and their coaches at The US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, along with several other "up and comers". this was an incredible opportunity. We had visited several high altitude states before and my daughter had always fallen ill to altitude sickness.

After consulting with her doctor at Tria, we contacted Nickie and discussed her ideas for getting my daughters respiratory system into shape so that when she left for Colorado we were confident that she would be able to get the most out of this training. We had 90 days to achieve this goal. Nickie presented us with a training schedule and routine that would not only increase her respiratory stamina, but also would increase her strength and conditioning. She worked with my daughter twice a week for three months.
She always came with an abundant of energy and a positive attitude as well as a fully prepared plan to fill the time for that session. There was no "winging it" and zero complacency.... She drove my daughter to achieve their goals.

The results that they both achieved was remarkable, my daughter was one of the only youth athletes at the training that had absolutely no altitude issues at all. Some of other athletes were not able to participate in all of the training and some were even hospitalized due their conditioning.

The value that Nickie offers to anybody that needs her service is second to none. I would highly recommend Nickie Carrigan to anybody. She is a gifted person who knows exactly why she is here on earth! and is worth her weight in GOLD!!!

I just completd a 5 day Fat Blast with a group of ladies brought together by Nickie. It was 5 days of hard work that really paid off both physically and mentally. Prior to this, I had no idea how to work out and my eating habits were not stellar. I have let my lifestyle and my bodystyle get out of control over the last few years and was very unhappy. At the start of this week I wasnt sure what to expect. After 5 days of making better food choices, cutting out all pop, (Pepsi was a huge factor for me) and doing workouts designed by Nickie, I feel better, have lost some weight and now I know what to keep doing. I cant wait for her next Fat Blast. She is motivating without being pushy and I feel she truly wants to see you succeed. Thank you Nickie for a great week and the start of a healthy lifestyle!

Sorry for any typos. I can spell, I'm just on my phone and it is sometimes tempermental...

My name is Heidi and I have been doing Nickie's boot camps since May of 2012 & started joining her challenges then too. She has inspired me to become a healthier role model for my kids and friends. Nickie has an energy around her that is contagious. She is positive and knows how to motivate. I think everyone should have a Nickie in their life!

Nickie has been extremely encouraging as I set my exercise and nutrition goals. She always gives positive feedback and keeps me on track. I love her energy and she always has a smile on her face. Loved participating in the MN Warrior Dash with her. She rocks!

I signed up for Nickie's Body Bootcamp last Oct. and I've LOVED it; she is a true fitness enthusiast and wants to see you succeed. She knows you can do it=>let her show you! I'm so excited when I drive past my local gym to this class because I know I'm on my way to a great workout. Thank you Nickie for teaching me the style of workouts I need to continue doing to send the FAT packin' and let the strength show through! Although I've incorporated some of your moves inside my gym, it's not the same or as fun for me because it's missing YOUR positive energy and motivational push. Strength builds change, group training reminds you:you're not alone, and with Nickie as your leader:Rest assured you'll get your workout "IN" for the day and feel accomplished when you leave!

Nickie is not only a spectacular trainer, but a sensational individual. I'll be the first to admit that working out is not my favorite activity and I often do a poor job of hiding that. But even on my grumpiest days, Nickie is a constant source of support and positivity. She honestly reminds of Elle Woods! This little blonde burst of sunshine. I agree with another comment about her enthusiasm being contagious. I never once walk out of a session with her without feeling happier than when I walked in. She is a true professional and a delight to work with!

Nickie is hands down one of the best leaders in fitness today! When i think about energy, commitment, and someone who is going to endure as a professional in this industry and lead many people to a better life it's Nickie. We're fortunate to have her on our Team Rockstar Fit Beachbody Team, and you would be fortunate to have her as a fitness coach or business partner! What are you waiting for message her already!!!

Nickie is Awesome! I've been attending her Bootcamp since June and it is AMAZING!! Nickie makes class FUN while motivating you to work harder and push past that comfort zone. I've also done some Personal Training with Nickie and she really listens and provides a workout program that will benefit YOU/ME to the max.
Thanks Nickie :)

I can't say enough about Nickie's incredile mix of positive energy, encouragement, yet tough love! No excuses accepted here, and she will push you to your limit during a work out, at the same time she works to find what will be the best program for you. She understands time constraints and trying to work fitness into a busy family life, but still holds you accountable for participation. With her help, I've moved to a level I hadn't ever even thought about!
