Nicole Bordenca | Owner/Coach/Personal Trainer

  • Certified Personal Trainer-NPTI
  • Level 1 CrossFit Trainer
  • CrossFit Olympic Lifting Certified
  • CrossFit Mobility Certified
  • CrossFit Kids Certified

At a young age I discovered my love for sports, competition, and feeling part of a team; as an adult CrossFit has allowed me to continue having all of that. I was a competitive gymnast for 12 years. I also played on various soccer and competitive cheerleading teams throughout high school.

I have been a personal and small group trainer for over 6 years and have found my true passion in helping people discover how much proper nutrition and exercise can impact one’s life. I’ve helped hundreds of people find a love of living a healthier lifestyle and I want to help you too! CrossFit has changed my life in a lot of ways, I’ve met a lot of amazing people because of it, it has pushed me harder (in a great way) than I ever thought I could be pushed, and has given me the chance to share this with all of you!
