I have practiced Pilates for 14 years and taught for 8 years. I own my own boutique studio, Inner Strength Pilates in Hightstown, NJ. I am a PMA certified pilates instructor and my original certification was given by the PhysicalMind Institute in NYC. I am a 2nd generation master instructor through completing Lolita San Miguel's Pilatesmaster mentor program in 2015. I am also a master Booty Barre instructor.

    I've been taking private and semi-private classes with Nichole, as well as her Bootie Barre class, after a diagnosis of severe osteoporosis. I knew from researching it that Pilates would be good for me but that there'd have to be modifications. Nichole has been terrific in working with me, modifying the movements but not "dumbing them down," which is what I'd feared. I work hard in the class and am seeing benefits. She has an eagle eye for when you're isolating the wrong muscles (even if you're also isolating the right ones); she misses nothing. She's smart, dedicated, and hard-working. You get your hour's worth -- and then some.

    I have been taking private lessons and mat classes with Nichole for almost two years. When I started, I was recovering from shoulder and ankle injuries and a bone density scan showed that I was borderline for osteoporosis. Now, my joints feel great and I am stronger and more flexible than ever. A recent bone density scan indicated a significant improvement that took me out of the osteoporosis range. I have even gained half an inch in height! I owe this all to Pilates, and especially to Nichole. She is a fabulous instructor who truly cares about her clients.

    Nicole is an “excellent” instructor. I take bi-weekly private Pilates session with Nichole and find her extremely knowledgeable, kind, encouraging and passionate about her work. She is extremely conscious of form and is always making sure you get the most out of your workout. I love that she continuously adds new techniques and classes to her studio. “Awesome Instructor” – thank you Nicole.
