  [Ashley]: "My lifestyle before working with Nico consisted of one good solid week at the gym, eat clean and get my body down to the weight I wanted and then binged on food till I was upset with how my body looked again, then it was back to hitting the gym and eating clean.  I was skipping meals because I believed that would make me skinnier and look better. I refused to train chest and arms for fear of looking too "manly".
  I desperately needed new goals and more importantly, a healthier lifestyle change.  I had seen the great work Nico had done with his clients and himself as well as the amazing work he did with my boyfriend Max Indicks, and Nico was also helping him get ready for his first NPC show. I realized then that I wanted to take my fitness journey to a whole knew level and prove to myself that I can stick with this and not just make it a one week out of month thing.

  I didn't realize how hard it actually was to prep for a show. It certainly took a toll on me both mentally and physically. Although it was hard and very challenging, Nico made it such a great experience, being always supportive and quick to answer any questions I had.  He wasn't too hard on me when I had the - more than occasional cheat foods, but he was very understanding on how hard it can be, especially it being my first prep. The change of routine was hard, but he kept me on track, not just by telling me "NO", but educating me on the 'why'. This not only became a sport to lean out and compete but it also became a learning experience and a lifestyle.

  The hardest part of my journey was not being able to eat what I wanted. I actually had to practice some self control. I was pushing myself to hit the gym even when I didn't feel like it. I also struggled with appreciating the progress my body was making. I was focusing so much on where I wanted to be that I forgot it takes time and that's what I learned from Nico as time went on.

  My advice for anyone who is on the fence about joining, just go for it.  It has been such a great experience. You don't realize how far you've actually come until you look back at where you started. You are apart of a team that is always so supportive of your progress and accomplishments. I couldn't have gotten to where I am today without all of Nico's help!!"
