Confessions of a Bikini Pro

In this episode, Celeste kicks off the second round of Coach’s Week by speaking with Nicole Ferrier, an online lifestyle and competition coach who is also the host of her own podcast, Beyond the Bikini, and who is an NPC Bikini athlete and has competed in 18 shows. Celeste also emphasizes Nicole’s education credentials and certifications and highlights that Nicole also focuses on prioritizing her clients mental health and food relationships in both the lifestyle and competition realms.  First, Celeste breaks down the types of questions she will be asking Nicole so both Nicole and the listeners can understand the structure of this new Coach’s Series. Celeste starts off with a round of philosophy questions, asking Nicole to summarize her personal philosophy and coaching style. Nicole then goes on to share how she handles the mental, physical and emotional demands that coaching can have as she is a coach who is heavily invested in her clients results and progress. Celeste mentions how Nicole emphasizes educating her clients and how she works with them on their relationship with food.  Nicole shares how she works with clients that feel apprehensive or overwhelmed about the prescribed food on their plan, especially with those that are prescribed more food than they are used to eating. Nicole also opens up and shares her personal struggles with an eating disorder and how that experience has helped her become a better coach.  After discussing the importance of coaching and food relationships, Celeste asks Nicole her opinion on what she feels is important in a coach or a team that sets them apart from others. With Nicole’s opinion in mind, she shares how her experiences as a competitor have helped her shape and mold her personal coaching philosophy and also talks about what she wishes potential clients would ask her in their initial consultation call.  Next, Celeste asks Nicole to elaborate more on some of her coaching strategies. Celeste starts off by asking a listener question, having Nicole share how she determines how far or how hard she can push her athletes. Celeste then asks Nicole how she addresses situations with clients that go “above and beyond” their plan. Branching off of the topic of monitoring client progress, Celeste asks Nicole about the approach she takes when peaking her clients for competition while taking a macro based approach.  Nicole then shares her opinion on what she feels are qualities or characteristics that separate the good  athletes from the phenomenal athletes. Celeste then asks Nicole to share her opinion on the somewhat taboo subject of natural athletes in the NPC and their potential for success without having “gifted genetics.” Circling back to the focus of client health as Nicole had mentioned previously, Celeste asks Nicole how she keeps her clients internal health a priority.  After talking coaching strategies Celeste and Nicole discuss pet peeves and about both the fitness industry in general and coach-client relationships. Nicole gives a more in depth description of how she prioritizes her clients given that they have such varying goals, for example lifestyle and competition, and she also shares her opinion on politics in competing.  From there, Celeste starts the second round of questioning, the hypotheticals, and asks that Nicole share her best opinion on each question. The subjects in this round consist of topics such as clients on their road to pro looking to change coaches before hitting the national circuit, client reassurance from Nicole as their coach if they are experiencing doubt during contest prep, what Nicole would like a potential client to know before committing to a competition prep, how she would help a competitor deal with a bad rebound, and if she would follow through with putting a competition client on stage even knowing that this client hadn’t been as diligent and dedicated to perfecting their stage presentation.  After finishing the hypotheticals, Celeste and Nicole get into the quick fire round of questioning. The quick fire round includes topics such as meal plan preferences, best methods of cardio for fat loss, waist trainers, and supplements. Nicole chooses a few of those questions to elaborate on and share her deeper thoughts and insight. She then shares key advice to listeners about the process of interviewing and hiring a coach and Celeste concludes the episode by having Nicole share where and how listeners can find her and connect with her further.

KNP146 - Beyond The Bikini With Nicole Ferrier

The Key Nutrition Podcast

On today's episode, we had Nicole Ferrier on the podcast. We had a fantastic conversation around dieting, female health and reverse dieting. More about Nicole: I graduated in 2017 with a BA in exercise science and minor in nutrition at Baldwin Wallace university. Alongside my bachelors degree, I am also a certified personal trainer through ACE. Education has been a big piece to changing my body. I believe in building physiques through physiology. That means, proper workout programming and no cookie cutter programs. Through physiology I am able to program nutritional plans and workouts to evolve physiques to the next level. However, I am a firm believer that fitness is more than our bodies. MY BODY USED TO CONTROL ME. I didn’t always feel strong and confident. As a young teen I never really felt like I “fit in”. I had one major outlet, which was gymnastics. I have always defined myself as an athlete, I trained upwards of 20 hours a week and overall ate like a normal teen. That was until I got consumed by diet culture, tumbler post and some toxic comments from loved ones. This lead me down a dark route. Through my teens years I struggled with a variety of disordered eating patterns. Being a competitive gymnast , I also became hyper focused on my body image. At 14 I hopped on my first ever “diet" where I lost 10lbs in a month. I restricted food severally and couldn’t function normally. This lasted all the way up into my late teens. I struggled with the yo yo of crash dieting and even binging and restricting. My weight fluctuated more than modern day gas prices. The constant changes in weight lead to concern from others and for me, constant frustration. Not to mention my confidence was completely nonexistent. EDUCATION SAVED MY LIFE.  Through my time at university I came to the conclusion that I was and tired of being sick and tired. I was burnt out from trying every fad diet in the book. Plus I was over exercising and running off everything I ate. I knew there had to be a better way.  That was when I found food freedom through macros. I went from a cardio bunny to a weight lifting junkie! I finally felt free from being a treadmill slave and realized the power in weight training.  In 2015 I found tracking macros and started to apply my exercise physiology into my training and it completely transformed my mind and body. With macros I was able to see all food as good. I learned that I could eat way more than I thought and truly change my body. Once, I combined my weight training with flexible dieting, I finally saw results! As an athlete I always wanted to stay competitive. That lead me to the love of bodybuilding.  I am currently a NPC bikini competition and have competed in over 17 NPC shows. Competing in shows allows for my inner athlete fire to stay lit. Competing has also brought me so much confidence and has helped me grown as a person. As a trainer, my mission is to help you grow. Grow in your knowledge with nutrition and training but also your mind and how you see yourself. True fitness encompasses both these aspects.  www.nicoleferrierfitness.com Beyond The Bikini Podcast Next Level Experience Program Beta Testers –> Click Here Order From Top Notch Nutrition -> Click Here Connect with us on Instagram Host Brad Jensen – @thesoberbodybuilder Guest Nicole Ferrier  – @niocleferrierfitness Key Nutrition – @keynutrition
