"I SEEK TO CONTINUOUSLY DO WHAT’S NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE..."
- Nicole Winhoffer
"I was born in NYC to a Filipino mother and German father. Athleticism in my family was a daily ritual: from an early age, I trained as a dancer, diver, swimmer, and track and field while my three younger brothers played soccer. Dance has always been my passion and through the years I excelled in it because I discovered that it was the only athletic workout that allowed me to express myself, release emotions, and keep me fit. At the age of 17, I booked my first Broadway show, appearing in 42nd Street, Bombay Dreams and Wicked.
Inspired by art, dance, fashion, music, and popular culture, my workout method is creative, innovative and unconventional. I seek to continuously do what’s never been done before combining my knowledge of the body, dance, sports science, anatomy and eastern practices that focus on the chakras, acupuncture points and energy work. The NW Method has played a leading role in shaping some of the best bodies in the entertainment industry including Madonna, Mya, Rachel Weisz, Stella McCartney, Andrea Riseborough, Abbie Cornish and Steven Klein.
From 2010-2014, I was the Creative Director of Hard Candy Fitness’ “Addicted to Sweat” program, which I co-created with Madonna to make our workouts accessible to all fitness levels. During this tenure, I successfully helped to open 8 Hard Candy Fitness gyms across the globe, teaching trainers in each location the Addicted to Sweat program.
At the end of 2014, I was announced as the new Global Ambassador of Women's Training for Adidas by Stella McCartney.
Saying yes to the universe and trusting myself has led to me to where I am today. I am always pushing the boundaries of fitness and strive to set the new standard of fitness in the 21st Century. Through movement, I want to inspire others to realize their dreams and lead them to their most balanced, beautiful, and best self.
Love Yourself! "
