After the filming ended in August, Nicole scoured the gyms and trainers in Philadelphia looking for a place she could continue the same type of complete, effective workouts she experienced on the Biggest Loser campus and someone that could fill Bob Harper’s [Nicole’s trainer on the show] shoes to get her looking HOT for the finale! Featured on last night’s show were shots of Nicole back home working out at her chosen gym, fusion: HEART.MUSCLE.MIND, selected by Philadelphia Magazine as “Best Gym” for 2007, with her fitness coach, Gavin McKay, the creator of the fusion concept and studio. In Nicole’s words, “Being on the show you get very used to personal attention all the time and I wanted to make sure I found a place that I felt 'knew' me. I also wanted a place that would kick my butt and ensure I was getting worked out like I was on the show. I wanted hard cardio (tread and spin), even harder weights, but also yoga, just like Bob trained us on the show. I was lucky enough to find it all in one place at fusion.”Nicole's Weight Loss Regimen
Nicole’s current weight is top secret but we can tell you that she hasn’t slowed down a bit while training @ fusion. At fusion, Nicole has been following an aggressive workout regimen and controlled diet to continue her dramatic transformation. fusion used all of it’s resources to help Nicole drop as much weight as possible in the shortest timeframe including: fusion’s unique 75 min group cross-training workouts (combining running/spinning, weight training and yoga), intensive personal coaching sessions, a complete calorie and eating assessment, and fusion’s fresh full day meal plans. “fusion and their nutritionist Jesse Frank helped me work out the exact calories in versus out and developed a specific diet for me, even providing all my meals for the day. I couldn't believe how fresh and yummy their meals are.” Nicole and Gavin can provide all the details of what it takes to make such amazing body transformations happen.
In January, Nicole will be hosting her own version of the Biggest Loser contest at fusion where the winner will be based on the percentage of body fat lost instead of purely on weight. Check the website for more details, www.fusioncrosstraining.com. This season Nicole lost a greater percentage of body fat than any other contestant, so she knows how it’s done.
