On Sunday, I went to the train with Nicole Wilkins event.  It was AWESOME!  Nicole is such an inspiration to me and many women in the fitness industry.  She is 4x IFBB Figure Olympia Champion and she is going for #5 this year!  The event was divided into 2 portions the first was a killer workout, followed by a fitness and nutrition seminar and Q & A.  I made it about 10 minutes early and there were already so many people there, we waited to sign in then get a pic with Nicole and get our t-shirt and signed photograph.  Since there were so many people we had to get started with the workout before I had my chance to get my picture and my stuff!  I was worried I would miss the opportunity to meet her again this year and chat with her.  However I was assured there would be time after the seminar.  We all gathered in a group training studio and Nicole told us how the event would work.  We then did a 5 minute cardio warmup.  While I was waiting in line I met a new fit friend.  We decided we would take each others picture with Nicole at the end.  We hopped on some elliptical machines and chatted while we warmed up.  After we went back into the group fitness studio and Nicole explained the circuits.  We did 7 stations of circuits with 45 seconds of work and 15 seconds to change stations in between.  Some of the stations were lunges with a kettlebell shoulder press (killer!), walking lunges, biceps and triceps, and bench up and overs.  We did 3 different circuits total.  Who knew that 45 seconds could feel so long?  I was dripping in sweat and loving every minute of it.  Nicole was walking around cheering us on, it was seriously so much fun to be in a room with a group of fit chicks (and some dudes)  and then to have Nicole tell you are doing a great job was the icing on the cake.  I had a few fan girl moments!  She is so sweet and so passionate you could just feel her positive energy radiating through the room.  At the end of the circuits she had to challenges, in and out squat jumps and planks.  The first one I thought I had it in the bag...I do these almost everyday!  I made it to the final 6 out of 50 people, and my legs are still a little sore from it!  It was a lot of fun and the energy in the room was awesome! !


After the workout we all went to a larger room to cool down and listen to Nicole give some advice when it comes to fitness and nutrition, we then got to ask her some questions.  She was really honest and helpful.  It was fun to be able to listen to her talk about her passion!  It was contagious!  After the hour was up those of us who didn't get a chance to get a picture with her or our t-shit and signed photo went back into the gym.  I got to chat with her for a second and tell her thanks for the awesome event.  My new fit friend took our picture and then I waited to take hers.  When I looked at my phone only to notice the lighting in the picture made it so you couldn't see our faces, I was bummed.  But I waited patiently and asked Nicole if I could get one more picture since the first one didn't turn out.  After I got the "perfect pic", I was able to chat with her for a little bit about my goals.  She listened to what I had to say and offered some awesome advice, which I have already incorporated.  Nicole is so sweet and such a genuine person, I can tell that she wants everyone to truly reach their goals.  I left the event with a new friend, a ton of great info and advice from Nicole, and was on cloud nine for the rest of the day!  It's not everyday you get to meet your fitness idol, and that she takes the time to help you out.  I can't wait until next years event!  She even mentioned she may do a PhatCamp event here in the fall, and if she does you better believe that I will be there!  I am so motivated to work hard, eat right and reach the goals I have set for myself.  If you ever get the chance to go to a train with Nicole Wilkins event...take it!  She rocks!!  I even created a Nicole Wilkins Inspired Circuit Workout for you!  Check it out and be sure to share and pin for later!
