Hi #FITGIRLCODE community! I’m Nicole Winhoffer and I represent new way of fitness. In order to change your life, the first thing you have to learn is to think outside the box. In my workouts I incorporate music, art, fashion, pop culture and freedom. Whenever my students first come to class I let them know that working out is a form of expression, not just an effect and a result, it’s a full experience.
The ideas for my training come from movies, music, books, fashion, colors and light. I have a very strong imagination and I’ve always been in touch with it since I was a child. Everything in our body is centrifugal force. Everything is a rotating, circular motion. In my philosophy I like to combine the scientific facts of working out and the effects it has with each one’s anatomy, as well the artistic element. This, believe it or not, is crucial to people’s soul. Unfortunately, we can lose sight of the child within us and that’s what makes us grow older. When you work out with me all of that changes. My workouts have been compared to the fountain of youth because I keep the neurons of your brain connected to the muscle pattern and I also get you to think differently. When you do something out of the ordinary it wakes up new neurons and gets you to move in a new way and have new muscles. Through curiosity, playfulness and being a child in your movement gives you that glowing skin and tight body that you crave, but also, a happy mind and a happy soul. It’s an expansion of your mind and open your consciousness.
It may sound radical, but I equate my workouts to the feelings of invincibility that people get when they’re high, drunk or having mad sex. Or maybe they’re at a concert and they’re shaking their heads up and down or they are at a club and dancing like there’s no tomorrow. I work not only the external, but also the internal. For example, if you’re doing a leg lift, you are also working the kidney, which is the organ of fear, so you’re exercising and moving the blood around that organ, releasing those pent up frustrations and allowing breathing space for new and better things to come. Speed and agility play a big part in my classes, waking everybody up to get those stagnant and rooted preconditions of their daily lives out. My classes are about movement and finding balance in the body, so my clients can find it in their life. Also, the classes are a bit about suffering. But, why is that? By getting through my class they are able to get through their problems in their life.
