I’m Nicole, a 24 year old fitness instructor from Arbroath.
I started martial arts at the age of 9 at "the BEST defence" being instructed by Mark Davies. Over the years I have developed my skills and I am now a 3rd Dan in kickboxing.
Working with mark has afforded me the opportunity to instruct many different classes of all age groups. Starting at a young age myself, I have a great interest in bringing on the "little ninjas", some of whom will no doubt follow in my foot steps.
I am also a qualified personal trainer and enjoy helping others achieve their goal, no matter their age or level of fitness. I firmly believe that fitness should be fun and available to all.
I have participated in many different Taekwondo competitions all over Scotland, winning numerous medals including 2 golds, 6 silver and 1 bronze. One of my proudest and greatest achievements is becoming Scottish champion in 2017 for sparring under 56kg and again for patterns.
In 2019, I spent a full month training at Tiger Muay Thai in Thailand. This was an experience I will never forget and one which I hope to repeat in the future.
All my training was worth it when in Nov 2021 I participated in my first C class muay Thai fight in Cambuslang. An experience I will never forget and will repeat in the future!
I first became involved with Brechin boxing club a few years ago when I attended my good friend Mike Duff’s fitness classes. From there I got to know Jocky and attended several of his ladies boxing classes. He then allowed me the use of his gym to teach my “little ninjas”. I have been very impressed with the community spirit at Brechin boxing club and how they welcome all ages and abilities.
I would encourage anyone thinking about boxing or general fitness to go along and give it a go!!
Now for the boring bit……when I’m not training, instructing or competing ….I’m a delivery driver for Hermes!!!!
