I met Nicole last year and have followed her journey as a motivated individual and a knowledgeable Personal Trainer/Business women ever since. We connected right away and Nicole has been a huge fan of our sportswear/activewear promoting it everywhere.
Nicole is based in Warnbro, Perth where she has turned her shed into a beautiful studio. She has grown massively and now trains her clients online through coaching and nutrition.
Nicole is the definition of an kik ass human and an inspiration to follow your passion.

Who is this KIK ASS HUMAN?
Hey! I’m Nicole Taylor. I am an online fitness and nutrition coach and spend my days helping amazing people achieve their fitness goals!
I enjoy being outside at the beach or going for hikes and camping with my husband Liam and dog Hannibal.
I am a MASSIVE bookworm and enjoy reading psychological thrillers, crime novels and mindset/self-help books (weird combo, I know haha)
Why did you become a Personal Trainer?
I love everything fitness and nutrition related, and it has changed my life, not just physically but mentally as well. I always knew that I wanted to help others achieve their fitness goals and create the healthy lifestyle they deserve (while eating the food that they love)
It was always my dream to be a Personal Trainer and own my own gym, but I let fear hold me back from following my passion.
After 10 years working in finance, I decided I’d had enough of office life and was sick of not feeling fulfilled in my career so got my qualifications, saved up and converted my shed into a studio and 6 months later Fit My Life Coaching was born.
In 2021 i started my online business and now help people all over Australia and NZ and it is so rewarding.
How has this changed your life?
I had no idea how much starting my own business would change my life. Over the last 2 years I have grown so much as a person and as a coach.
Since changing careers to one that I am passionate about has helped my mindset to become more positive and my mental health is 100x better.
Also, spending every day with my puppy is the best!
Who inspires you and why?
My clients and people I see on social media who are working so damn hard every day to achieve their goals.
They inspire me to lead by example and be the best coach possible.
They inspire me to continue putting content out to help them on their journey and to help cut through the bullshit fitness and nutrition advice that we see online.
Where are you now? ( Can be mentally/emotionally or business)
Currently I am working on growing my business to reach and help more people, I am working hard behind the scenes with my online program to make it the best for my current and future clients,
Mentally, I am working on my mindset. Starting and growing a business is hard work. It might look or sound easy, but it isn’t and by working on my mindset it helps me stay in a positive frame of mind (humans love to focus on the negative, our brains are just wired that way) and focused on my goals even when I have a not so great day.
Mindset is super important, and it is a big part of what I work on with clients.
What advice would you give someone wanting to get fit or lose weight?
Start off slow. I see so many people start their fitness journey by going all in and changing everything in their life for this new active, healthy lifestyle only to ‘fall off the wagon’ a week or 2 later.
Make small changes in your routine and nutrition – start by working out 2-3x per week or adding in a 30 min walk most days, eating more veggies at dinner – those sorts of things and you’ll find that eventually you will be living the healthy active lifestyle and this time it’s for life and not just a few weeks.
Get a Coach. A Coach takes away so much stress and confusion about what you need to be doing to reach your goals.
What have you learnt from starting your own business and what advise would you give someone wanting to start a business?
I have learnt that you need to have a lot of self-motivation, determination and drive to start your own business. It is a lot of hard work and long days but if you stick at it, you will reach your business goals.
Have a plan, don’t wing it because you will most likely fail.
How can people find you if they want to work with you?
If you would love to have me as you Online Coach, the easiest way is to go to my Instagram (either one) and fill in the application and we’ll go from there!
Is there anything else you’d like to add?
If you sign up to online coaching to start in Jan, I will add on the rest of 2021 for free! You’ll get around 20 weeks of coaching for the price of 16 weeks!
