Nicole Grant—Owner Barre Fit Warriors | Master Barre and Piloxing Trainer
Winner of The 2023 Ottawa Faces Awards – Best Wellness Coach
My name is Nicole Grant and I am the proud owner and Master Trainer of BFW! I was a professional dancer for over 25 years; I started dancing at a very young age and was blessed to have traveled the world throughout my career. I have a passion for all types of fitness whether it be Barre, Yoga, Pilates, Weight Training or Cardio inspired classes. I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Dance/Pedagogy from Ryerson University and I have a number of certifications in many different forms of fitness. To name a few, I am a certified Yoga Instructor in Hatha, Yin, Restorative & Gravity Yoga. I am also a Certified American Barre Technique Master Instructor/Barre Coach, a Piloxing SSP/Piloxing Barre and Pilates Instructor.
I found Barre many years back when I was recovering from an injury. It did wonders for my body and recuperation. Barre helped me gain strength and facilitate movement again. There is a discipline in Barre that connects the body and mind to allow one to surpass physical expectations.
I’m a true believer you don’t need to spend hours at the gym to get a great workout in. My method of training is within a 45 or 60 minutes class setting. My classes vary between increasing the heart rate, targeting key areas and combining isometric exercises with movement. In my classes setting-up exercises correctly is key to maintaining proper body structure and alignment to maximize the benefits of an exercise and prevent injury.
BFW is unique in its approach to fitness as it offers the benefits one would have from taking class in a studio. You will receive real-time corrections, you will never go through the same class twice (classes are always progressing), while being offered the convenience of online. You get competitive pricing, save time on travel and work out where you choose feels right.
I believe that fitness should be inclusive and accessible to everyone, which is why I want BFW to be the epitome of livestream online fitness that connects people through a shared passion for movement and wellbeing. I strive on continuously learning so I can always offer more; continuing my fitness education is how I stay current, relevant and grow. The more I know, the more I can give. My clients are at the core of what I do, and I want to give everyone a personalized experience. Even though classes are offered in a group setting, my attention to detail ensures each person gets what they need out of their class.
Livestream classes offer a great flexibility and through a dedicated client approach and the right platforms, I offer quality classes that can be done from anywhere. With BFW, wherever you choose to work out you can count on having support.
Can’t wait to see you in class!
